One of the greatest things about blogging is the e-mails we get praising us for our work. Â I feel we are accomplishing something when we hear from other gay Republicans (and conservatives) who have (“finally” as some put it) found a forum where others share views similar to their own. Â
It’s also heartening to hear from gay liberals delighted to discover dissent to the gay orthodoxy to which they are accustomed. Â They might not agree with us, but they are want to familiarize themselves with other political perspectives in our community.
And then there are the social conservatives, the evangelicals, who discover us. Â One such individual e-mailed me last week and with his permission, I reprint his e-mail:
I have struggled for some time with “gay” issues. I haven’t quite come to terms with how to reconcile my views, being a straight libertarian evangelical Christian, et al, but I prefer to leave that to others more knowledgeable. I have too many good friends who are gay. I care too much about them to just dismiss them, or condemn them.
From what I read so far in your blog/archives, I think your blog will help.
Glad we can help offer a different perspective on gay issues than that offered by the mainstream gay media (MSGM?). Â Truly flattered by this e-mail. Â Thanks!
