That is simply patently false. There are MANY genetic disorders that result in an inability to reproduce. Consider children born with Tay-Sachs. Most die before the age of four and thus cannot reproduce. There are many more disorders like this. Please reconsider your argument.
I don't think that we should paint all Christians as 'filled with rage and hatred'. Christian charities do an immense amount of good around the world. There is a small segment of Christianity that vociferously opposes all things related to homosexuality. Not all Christians feel this way. It is unfortunate that it is the extremists that get the most publicity on these issues.
Just because something is readily apparent to you does not make it true or even readily apparent to others. To me it is readily apparent that the marriage of two people of the same gender is not detrimental to society or to my marriage. I can only assume that you do not feel the same way, and that to go by what is 'readily apparent' to a single person is a poor way to make decisions for a country.

Forward to Socialism

I'm not disagreeing with the crux of Mr. Blackwell's argument. As a campaign slogan, anything that has an association with Socialism is clearly not in Mr. Obama's best interest. However, I find that his example of Sweden as a negative example of Socialist policies is either ill considered or under explained. It follows from his column that Sweden's problems are the result of low birth rates, not Socialists policies.

Glee Celebrates the 'T'

If Mr. Bozell has such a problem with Glee, perhaps he should stop watching. This is not the first column he has written attacking the show, and I highly doubt it will be the last. Maybe he should just stop watching it and save himself some outrage.
I mean this as a serious question: If the party platform of the Oklahoma Republican party states “God is the Author and Creator of life", is there no place in the party for conservative minded atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Hindus, etc. Perhaps Oklahoma is religiously homogeneous enough that it is not an issue, and clearly the Republican party is dominant in Oklahoma anyway, but I can see a future where that is not necessarily the case.
