Gays, straights & conservatives

Greg Gutfeld, blogging at Big Hollywood, has this to say on the subject of gays in the conservative movement:
...If you want to argue against homosexuality, you need to move it beyond religion. Fact is, if I get mugged, I can explain to the police why the mugger must be arrested – without saying “it’s in the Ten Commandments.”

After all, pointing to God as the basis for your distaste is what our enemies do every time they try to blow us up. We’re better than that.

I'm a guy, I'm attracted to females, and that's my 'choice'. I really couldn't care less if the person sitting beside me at a Conservative function is gay or straight. None of my business as long as they respect my 'choice' of playmates.

On the other hand, one real good argument against homosexuality... imagine waking up in the morning to the sight of Iggy's face and realizing neither of you have any clothes on...
