No one is going to be happy here. SoCons who continue to press this issue on the political (not the personal or religious) stage have to realize that they are damaging many of us who have other concerns domestic and foreign, many of which we would probably agree on more easily.
This is a great moment. A seriously smaller government is a real possibility with electoral victories in 2014 and 2016. Let’s not jeopardize them by emphasizing an issue more properly, and unquestionably more successfully, dealt with in the private realm.
Their religion tells them they have to use the state to make homosexuality illegal, because what good is a state if it can’t enforce their religious precepts on everybody else?
So stop trying to confuse them with reason. They’re not going to change, but eventually they will probably die off. And they may take the GOP as currently constituted with them.
