When I alerted Jim Hoft that one of our critics had made insinuations about his “feelings” toward us, he thanked us in post. We are most grateful for the acknowledgement. The feedback from his reputedly rabid right-wing readers helps show just how far off our critic was by suggesting that our fellow conservatives really don’t think very highly of us.

Guess what? They are as conservative as they come (fiscally, of course).
Adam said that, “The only people I’ve ever known to use the word ‘faggot’ were leftists. Ironic.” And Buffalobob thanked me . . .
. . . for being the forthright man you are. We can agree or disagree in our discussions. That is what freedom is. That is what our first amendment guarantees us. Those who try to shout us down, accuse us of racism, accuse us of being intolerant, demand that we follow in lockstep with their ideology are everything and more that we are falsely accused of.
Seems that those who comment at Jim’s site have much in common with the bloggers whom they follow, perhaps opposed to state recognition of gay marriage, but in favor of treating gay individuals with dignity.
