My last post was a bit long and rambling. Allow me to summarize my position, and what I recommend for conservatives concerning gays.
1. Being virulently anti-gay is unlikely to help us regain control of the federal government, and therefore such expressions should be avoided. They hinder more than help. If I would be free to live my life as I choose, within the law, I must be willing to allow others the same privilege.
2. The purpose of government is not, or should not be, to enforce anyone's religious imperatives on the public at large.
3. The intense social and economic ostracism of the left on anyone who expresses contrary opinions is unfortunate and to be resisted; therefore, I support the boycott against A&E.
4. As conservatives, we need to pick and choose our fights carefully, with a long view, and avoid unnecessary controversies. We have a tendency to shoot ourselves in the foot and to fight battles we cannot win, and do not need to win, in order to restore the Constitution, limited government, and economic prosperity.
That's basically what I was trying to say in my last post. What do you think? What am I missing here?
