I have never liked this guy, and now I find that he is -- or at least, was, fifteen years ago -- a fan of Atlas Shrugged!

        Perhaps his name threw you off, but I thought the article was informative and since it is the first time I have met him, per se, I will think of him as a good person.

          I think I've seen some articles on Fox by him touting the moral superiority of traditional (i.e., heterosexual, monogamous, one-partner-for-life) marriage, or the moral inferiority of gay/bi sex, or some such rot.

          But I'm not sure I'm remembering correctly. I suppose I should go do a deep-dive.

            Okay, deep-dive complete. It wasn't all that deep; I have other things to do today.

            Looks like he's a mixed bag. Which all of us are, on some level or other.

            The gay community hates him. But everything I saw from them was a gross misrepresentation of what he had actually said. Which is pretty common for the gay activists.

            I do disagree pretty strongly with much of what he has said, and I think those were the only things I had seen from him in the past.

            This is not the first time I've seen an idea that I really like from someone whom I despise. It's humbling. And good for us. Keeps our minds open, you know.

            Didn't Rand say some unsavory things about homosexuality in her early days. You must've forgiven her at some point.

              She said some things about the PRACTICE of homosexuality. I don't have a problem with someone saying that this or that disgusts them. After all, smoking disgusts me.

              Has she ever made snide remarks about a PERSON who is gay or bi? That's where my line is drawn.

                So...just to be clear....the line is drawn right between Practice and Person... like this? Practice / Person. (Ex: The practice of smoking is disgusting...but the person who does the smoking...isn't. Am I getting warm?)

                  Yeah, pretty close.

                  I try not to make fun of a PERSON who "is" something s/he can't help (such as mental retardation, for a good example). I know the scientific jury is still out on that re: homosexuality but the evidence is leaning pretty strongly these days.

                  People who are intentionally stupid (i.e., Leftys) get no such respect from me!

                  So in the case of the pictures -- yes, many lesbians aren't "pretty." I actually know one in my home town who is flat-out disfigured. I think they're painfully aware of that -- what woman wouldn't be? -- and it strikes me as horribly insensitive to call attention to it in public.

                  Does that help? Thanks for asking.
