If I may respectfully offer some thoughts here, I see this sort of post as exactly the kind of thing that keeps the gay community from being as accepted by others as we want to be.
It seems to me that in order to be a "good gay" by some people's definitions, you should be a Liberal Democrat, Militant Environmentalist,Vegetarian or Vegan,Atheist who drives only a foreign car, is embarrassed by America and who verbally attacks anyone that doesn't believe exactly as you tell them to.
Well I'm sorry to tell you, but there are a great many of us who never will follow that line of thinking, and who refuse to be a part of the crowd, be it the "in crowd" or not. Attacking and denigrating the individual is not how you display leadership, nor is it how you earn respect in society.
I have absolutely no reservation in saying that I am a Christian and I am a Conservative. As such, I know my core values and why I believe what I do. The tough part about both of these doctrines is living what you believe, which is very difficult to do at times. The first responsibility of a Christian is to show the love of Christ as they are loved, and to mirror God's grace. Sadly, a great many of them aren't very good at this. As a Conservative, I do not believe in censoring speech or controlling thought. I will defend the right of my liberal friends to speak and believe as they want to. I have never wavered on this.
Furthermore I can tell you that "nut jobs" like The Reverend Fred Phelps, Jeremiah Wright and "NotThatOld"on here spewing venom about how "Darwinism is the foundation of racism" (Nonsense, that's giving racists an unfair pass for their own ignorant, stupid judgmentalism of others) do not speak for me now or ever.
People have free will to think and believe as they will. Disrespect, however, is not part of any freedom I know if and it's wrong whether it's political disrespect, religious disrespect, or personal disrespect. If you are a liberal, an atheist or whatever, good for you. If you wish to believe that my faith is a "false belief system" that's your choice and I respectfully disagree with that.
The irony for me here is that the gay community, which is by and large, populated by and run by liberals, professes to be so welcoming, accepting and open in theory. In practice however it's a different story. People look for reasons to judge, discriminate, attack and ridicule and columns like this one, borne of a pure hatred for the Christian Faith is a glittering example of this hypocrisy.
We need to stop labeling, judging and discriminating against each other and start with the fundamental truth that we are human beings first and foremost, and that each person is worthy of being treated with dignity and respect.
