Enough, already, with the nonsense on stilts that gay conservatives are “self-hating.” I’ve heard plenty of that crapola. More than I can stand.
What gay liberals refuse to consider — because it does not flatter them — is that conservative gays make the choices we do, just as everyone else does, in what we perceive to be our own best interests. The reason the gay lib hivemind discounts this is that they obviously don’t feel they have a strong enough case to debate us. The only way to avoid a debate is to pretend there’s no other choice but the one they want.
But let’s look at a very important consideration. At least, one that should be considered important. What do our enemies want us to do?
Our enemies — those who truly do hate gays and wish us harm — want us to do what does no good in helping us. They want us to spin our wheels until we’re mired in the mud of inaction and ineffectiveness. They do NOT want us to do what really works to move us forward.
If gays who joined the Christian Church, or the Republican Party, were truly self-hating, then our enemies would be welcoming us into these institutions with loud hosannas and resounding joy. They would be elated to see us there, and do all they could to make us comfortable there.
And they do that, right? Right?
Crickets from the gay libs in response. And that’s because the people who hate gays also hate it when we remain Christians, or become Republicans, or identify, in any sense, as conservatives. It drives them nuts. They have made clear, from their spluttering, fuming and rage, that it’s the very last thing they want us to do.
Why? Because we’re refusing to concede them any territory they can safely and smugly call their own. We’re fighting them on “their own” turf, and over every blade of grass. We are keeping them from any longer being able to claim, as their own private bailiwick, territory that is our birthright every bit as much as it is theirs.
They don’t care if we’re liberal, or Democrats, or atheists. As a matter of fact, they want us to be. They want it SO much that they must desperately pretend we are, and portray us as such, even when we aren’t.
The truly pathetic people are those gays who congratulate themselves on what warriors they are — what rebels! — striking blows against the enemy. That is the most delusional fantasy I have ever heard. What they are doing is just exactly, to the letter, what our enemies want them to do. They are playing directly into our would-be destroyers’ hands.
As a gay Christian and gay libertarian conservative, I encounter proof of this almost daily. I’m a part of the vanguard of those who are truly driving our enemies nuts. And I’m damned proud of it.
When I encounter gay liberal self-haters, I can only laugh.
