  •  I do object to the diary title. It is not gay (1+ / 0-)

    bashing on the left. It is presumed to be righties doing it, because it is intrinsically and inherently a right-wing position. To be a even a liberal, let alone anybody further to the left, requires that one believe in, support and work for equality. Not equality for some, or equality for white straight males (a totally reactionary position), but equality for all. Anything else is not merely conservative and bigoted; it is, in this day and age, pretty damn close to reactionary. The "my Priest told me ..." defense doesn't help them either because doninionism is also reactionary.  No matter if some of these bigots might think that they are lefties, being to the left of Mussolini or Louis the 14th doesn't make you a lefty, and bigots are, in this day and age, definitionally right-wingers.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt -
