We need to do a better job promoting a vision of human dignity (so lost now) and demonstrating how a nobler approach to human sexuality will serve that dignity. Insulting people will not serve that.
We need to get better at making the case that the way we live out our sexuality and present it to the world is a matter of human dignity. I don't think we have been very effective, while the other side has been hugely effective.

"They are also less likely to join neighborhood groups, including neighborhood watches to keep an eye out for crime." Given recent history, how willing are people going to be to volunteer for neighborhood watches at all?
Could you give some examples?

I'll second that. Amen!
So the big question is how do we build a culture that celebrates growing in virtue more than gratifying desires?

We shall see what the future brings. We must do a good job articulating the highest ideals with love.
You don't say what you think their reason is, and you don't say what you think the right reason is. I think you could use another cup of coffee this morning.
Don't see a problem. Like putting a premature baby in an incubator. What I can't understand is why you seem to think it might be a problem for conservatives.
I think it will be harder and harder for people to see polygamy with consenting adults to be a bad thing. I think the next push might be one hour marriages, with built in pre-nups, to get around prostitution laws. By what principle would people oppose it. Interestingly, there was a woman recently charged with engaging in "unnatural, perverted sex acts" in the privacy of her home. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2332246/School-behavioral-specialist-sex-family-dog-month.html Other than reactions of disgust, what principle is left in our society that says that is wrong? Was there any evidence that the animal suffered? We better get a grip on why we believe what we believe, or what is now unthinkable will soon be inevitable.

It amazes me that they will be so proud of being instruments of social change when it suits them, and then say they have no responsibility for the bad messages, and so many people buy it.
