Dennis Prager is exactly right. A service is not done to individuals or society by condoning homosexuality. But there are powerfull enemies of civilization in the medie, the academy and in politics. The truth would untimately set those who have allowed themselves to become addidted free.

"Powerful enemies of civilization"!? You homophobes are such drama queens. Small, hated minority groups, like gay people, would have the most to fear from a collapse of civilization. Why would they be its enemy?

RosefromNoHo -
"Small, hated minority groups, like gay people,"?
"drama queens"? "Homophobes"?
How about "heterophobe"? Like that one? No! Non-word! Non-word!
Perhps Snooper6 offense your sensibilities using "powerful enemies of civilization".
The left never tires of resorting to name-calling when their positions are weak and threatened.
Why doesn't the MSM call Islam on its violent behavior towards gays? Think the Religion of Peace will be all palsywalsy with, in your words, "small, hated minority groups, like gay people"? they do more than simply not "condone it". When did Snooper6 or Prager say "condemn"? You just don't get it and, you know, I'm just wasting my time here trying to reason with the emotionally unreasonable.

Larry.....if you want someone to step forward and say that religious nuts from MANY sects, including Islam are anti gay, I am hereby doing so. America is, of course, much more moderate than Islamic countries, so instead, of wanting to execute gays in the U.S., "our" religious fanatics, including, of course, Prager, "only" want to deny them some of the same rights that straights have. But, yes, the point is taken that Prager et al are not as vicious in their anti-gay agenda as their ilk in Islamist countries.

Larry in TX: Why do homophobes have a problem with the word? And I was pointing out how stupid Snooper6's comment was that gay people are "powerful enemies of civilization". You are the emotional one, getting all worked up, and you can't form a rational argument. I'm being rational, gay people are a small and hated minority. Are you trying to deny that? And they would have a lot to fear from a collapse of civilization, so they wouldn't be its enemy. Can you deal rationally with my argument?

Last week, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio announced that he had reversed his position on same-sex marriage. The reason was that his son had come out to him and his wife as gay.

This is not the first such instance. Periodically, we hear about Republican politicians whose child announces that he or she is gay, prompting the parent to change his mind about the man-woman definition of marriage.

As a parent, I understand these parents. We love our children, and we want them to love us.

Nevertheless I differ with their decisions to support the redefinition...
