The Gay Rights movement has a new champion, and like Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition, it was completely unexpected.
My buddy Michael Coren was deluged with hate (e-)mail for standing up against someone who wants be reduce Gay people to a mere sexual act. Gay men are not merely "sodomites," the same way that heterosexual men are not just "vagina boinkers" and nothing more.
Social conservatism isn't something I share with Michael, but we have both been on the receiving end of the same type of invective from people who become histrionic when their narrow, bigoted outlook on the world is challenged. It says a great deal about the foundations of an ideology when those who cling to it become threatened, and threatening, when it is contested.
