Conservatives Who Embrace Gay Rights Ought To Embrace ObamaCare Also Since Both Threaten Religious Freedom

How to destroy the Republican Party from the inside? Simple, embrace the gay rights agenda of President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Barney Frank. If someone who is gay wants to support limited government, great, but do not compromise on the social issues for that extra 1-3 percent of support. In addition to that, Conservatives opposed to the ObamaCare mandate should just role over then, because the gay rights agenda is just another mandate through other means. Turn out there are some Conservatives who wrongly think they can walk this tight rope. This from Twitter:

Just disinvited from speaking by @ because my support for gay rights makes me "too controversial." Er, okay. #BigTentorTeepee?

You really want to trade off the strong social Conservative base of the Republican Party which I would estimate to be at least 30 percent of the base for 1-3 percent that compose the gay activist agenda? Or maybe you just want to be liked by Democrats?

  1. There are bigger fish to fry than this Todd. Regular conservatives and Tea Partiers who agree on social issues can't seem to agree on anything else. It looks like the Republican tent isn't big enough to hold the establishment conservatives, the fiscal conservatives, the social conservatives and the Tea Party. The Reagan coalition is now broken into about 4 or 5 sub-groups; all who seem to love fighting amongst themselves. Democrats must be loving this. The longer the Civil War, the better it is for Democrats in 2014.

  2. Gay marriage is going to happen. Republicans who spend time and money fighting it are hopelessly naive relics of a prejudiced past.

    It's also pretty hypocritical.

    How can you claim to support a small federal government when you actively champion policies that would regulate what people can and can't do in the privacy of their own home? How can you claim you support freedom of religion when you spit on people's right to ignore the laws of YOUR religion? The Republican party was founded on the idea that the government shouldn't be allowed to interfere in the private lives of its citizens. I think you've strayed from those values. Call yourself a conservative or a Christian if you want but, for goodness sake, stop calling yourself a Republican. You're making the rest of us look bad.

  3. I agree that letting the states handle it is probably the better way to go (another reason to celebrate the repeal of DOMA) but, at the end of the day, I don't think it's a good idea to let any government tell anyone what they can do in the privacy of their own homes. The Republican party was founded on the idea that the government should be small and unobtrusive. Any power not explicitly delegated to the government via the constitution should be in the hands of private citizens. They shouldn't be telling us who we can marry, what guns we can buy or how to run our businesses. You might not agree with gay marriage or homosexuality, but the idea that the government can come into your home and structure your family according to ITS definition of family/marriage should be far more frightening to you than a world where men kiss other men.
