Steyn should be careful. You know what happened to Santorum when he tried to make comparisons.
That's what I said, too.
''If assholes were airplanes, this conference would be an airport.'' One way or another, it's all very anal in the Anglican church these days. The problem for Bishop Harris is that one day those flying assholes will take off and the airport will be empty.
LOL. Good article, Pokey. Thanks so much.
In a sea of humor many islands of truth (apologizing for the lame metaphor)
Thanks, Pokey !!
Which is why gay marriage is already here in two Canadian provinces (Ontario and British Columbia), coming to Britain any day now, and likely to be ruled a fundamental human right by the Massachusetts Supreme Court later this summer. The transformation of a ''crime against nature'' into a co-equal civic identity within little more than the span of one human lifetime is one of the most remarkable victories ever achieved by any minority group. Some years ago, the (gay) columnist Andrew Sullivan said to me that he reckoned there was more male-on-male sex in the days before the invention of gayness as a round-the-clock identity. I don't doubt it. But that only makes the triumph of gay marriage even more impressive: In the Western world, a minority that didn't even exist in a formal sense a century ago has managed to overwhelm and overhaul a universal societal institution thousands of years old.

Leshner called the ruling, "Day One for millions of gays
and lesbians around the world."
When the rulers insist they know better than the masses, don't be surprised if the masses look elsewhere. I wouldn't vote for a state sodomy law, and some of the sex acts proscribed in the more broadly drawn anti-sodomy legislation I still dream fondly of getting to try one day, if I ever find anyone willing to have sex with me. But the gay lobby hasn't yet closed the deal with the American people on the equalization of homosexual relationships and, by insisting haughtily that it has and that the case is now closed, it's behaving in a manner more appropriate to the diseased Chiraquiste democracies of Europe than to the rough 'n' tumble of America.
Satan has his own "pet causes"!
So is mine. And so is that of at least some gays:
I have a gay friend who said he thought he was doing something incredibly racy and "fun" when he adopted his rather dramatic gay persona, and now that it had become politically correct, he didn't see any point in it!
He said that he didn't want to marry anybody of either sex, and that the politicization and "official status" of homosexuality had taken all the fun out of it. He could no longer sit in a bar pretending to be Bette Davis. Or even pretending to like Bette Davis movies...
