"There is something to being gay apart from the sodomy. That's what I want their new motto to be, by the way: Gays Without the Sodomy! This is why I get along with the gays. We like the same music, the same cocktails -- often the same men. There is a whole culture to it.

Not exactly resolving the "sin" issue, though, she concluded, "The left is trying to co-opt gays, and I don't think we should let them. I think they should be on our side. We're for low taxes. We're against crime. We're against the terrorists who want to kill gays.
"Gays are natural conservatives."
