The Conservative Homosexual Agenda?

There has been vigorous email debate today among the GayPatriot crowd, and a good suggestion was made to make it a posting:   What would be the elements of a “conservative” homosexual agenda?  The debate began after a few of us read this news item from Matt Barber at Townhall.com.

As with every major political movement, the homosexual lobby is pushing a specific agenda. It is often called the “gay agenda.” At its core is a concerted effort to remove from society all traditional notions of sexual morality and replace them with the post-modern concept of sexual relativism. That is to say, when it comes to sex, there is never right or wrong.   All sexual appetites are “equal.” If it feels good, do it.  Ultimately, the homosexual lobby’s primary objective is to radically redefine our foundational institutions of legitimate marriage and the nuclear family by unraveling God’s natural design for human sexuality. In so doing, they hope to elevate their own spiritual and biological counterfeit and establish a sexually androgynous society wherein natural distinctions between male and female are dissolved.  This creates cultural and moral anarchy.     

Our email exchanges all agreed that Mr. Barber was a bit over the top…. but there was some validity to his overall premise.  There is a radical LIBERAL gay agenda. So logically, blog ally VtheK brought forth the question open for debate now:

It begs the question of what a conservative homosexual agenda would look like.  I guess where that would get bogged down is on the issues of marriage and adoption.   It’s difficult to reconcile an agenda that would, presumably, seek those things while retaining traditional values.   I guess the approach would have to be two-fold.  1.) Declaring that marriage as an institution should be defined by voters, not by judges and  2.) That gay relationships should model monogamy and commitment as ideals, and that the expectation of monogamy and commitment should be normalized within the gay community.     

Have at it.   My only remaining question is… why is it left to us to develop the Gay Conservative Agenda, when last I checked there were people giving money to Log Cabin (Republicans) to do that kind of work???   Oh… yeah…. I forgot:   they are too busy being giddy about government payouts.

From LCR email entitled, “Free Money!”

President Bush this week signed a huge economic stimulus package.  Most Log Cabin members will receive a check from Uncle Sam in the amount of $600 dollars, and we hope you’ll consider stimulating Log Cabin by donating all or part of your tax rebate check.

Hmmm.. how “very Human Rights Campaign” !

LCR=gay conservatives?   Sure, and I’m a purple cow.

UPDATE (from Dan):  Sorry I haven’t had much time to weigh in on this topic, but it is something that I have considered for some time.  I think the basic gay conservative agenda is a word we hear less and less frequently from the lips of the heads of gay organizations — and read less and less often in their statements and press releases — and that word is “freedom.”  Leave each individual free to live his life as he chooses.  Of course, that is just the beginning, but it is also the unifying theme. And then, there’s the fundamental issue of what we do with that freedom.  But, that, Senator Obama notwithstanding, is not a question for the political sphere. 

Yes We Can!

MTV CASTING CALL:
True Life documentary series

I was contacted this week by the folks at MTV.  (Yeah, I was surprised too!)   They are looking to cast some folks for an upcoming episode of their documentary series, True Life.

True Life:  I Live Another Life On The Web

We are currently producing a documentary for MTV about people who live “other lives” online.

Do you sometimes feel as if you’re living a double life? Are you pretending to be someone you’re not?  Do you have one identity in your everyday life, but a different one when you’re alone and on-line?  Does your virtual avatar make you feel confident behind your computer screen?  Are you famous online but feel like you’re invisible in real life?

Do you have trouble approaching someone for a date in person, but when you’re behind the comfort of your computer, do the words just flow?  Would you be afraid to be yourself if you were ever to come face-to-face with your online friends or companions?  Do you get so caught up in the person you pretend to be on the web that you maintain that persona in person?

If you appear to be between the ages of 16 and 28, and live another life on the web, email your story to: brosen@leftright.tv    Please be sure to include your name, location, phone number and a photo, if possible.

I think they wanted ME to bite on this.  Frankly, what you see here is who I am… kinda boring, eh?  The funniest part of this for me was the last line.  “If you appear to be between 16 and 28″….  Heh, heh.  Oh, and what IS an “avatar” anyway?   *showing my age and online ignorance*

So all of you online superstars… here’s your chance!
