Gay Conservatives

by Mona Charen

Dennis Prager (as usual) makes a good point about gay people. The Left tries to insinuate that being opposed to same-sex marriage amounts to anti-gay bigotry. We know that isn’t the case. It’s also important to remember that not all gay people support the Left’s agenda. And so, a true story. My husband ran into a gay friend he hadn’t seen in a number of years. They got together for lunch, and when the subject turned to the friend’s long-time partner, Bob asked whether they planned to take advantage of the District of Columbia’s law permitting same-sex marriage. The friend shook his head no. Why? “I guess I’m a traditionalist about these things.”
