No Gay Bashing, Please

It is one thing to oppose enshrining homosexual “marriage” into federal law as some sort of constitutional right. It is one thing to personally believe in traditionalist Christian teachings. But it is quite another to write hateful things painting all homosexuals with the same brush — especially the brush of Communism, among other things. A certain column by a CPAC sponsor, published in the last week, apparently is going viral on the left, and Bloomberg has already run a big story on it. This column goes beyond public policy into the realm of hatred, as referenced above. It doesn’t even deserve the dignity of a link. I am a full, three-stool-leg conservative, including pretty much across the board on public policy regarding the “social issues.” But for the record: The column in question violates Christ’s Second Great Commandment. It therefore does not represent valid social-conservative thought.
