Kerry on Cheney's Daughter

To be sure, I believe homosexuality to be morally wrong, BUT... There's an intuitive feeling that somthing was amiss with John Kerry's reference to Dick Cheney's daughter as a point of contention.

It was just as bad that the question was asked in the Vice-Presidential debate. Cheney chose to leave the subject alone. There may be a point of contention between the President and his Vice, but it's an issue that has little bearing in the President's steadfast position on the definition of marriage. Cheney was wise to leave it alone when he did. It levelled our focus on John Edwards' response, which was not unlike Kerry's.

So why did we get an uneasy feeling when Kerry brought it up?

The liberal strategy is to paint conservatives as hateful toward homosexuals. Liberals want homosexuals to belive that liberalism is the ideology that will give them what they want. To some extent, this is true. There are exceptions: Some homosexuals are conservative. Some homosexuals don't care about redefining marriage. Astonishingly, some homosexuals believe, as do I, that homosexuality is wrong. However, many homosexuals fit the stereotype and are activly liberal. The point is that John Kerry wants to paint conservatives as homophobic. By invoking Mary Cheney, he calls to mind that conservatives are not unkind to homosexuals. While most of us have a moral issue with homosexuality, we recognize that homosexuals are people who have the same material and spiritual needs as anybody. Kerry's attempt to mischaracterize conservatism brought to light the deceitful nature of liberlaism. That's why you felt uneasy when Kerry brought it up.

Homosexuallity is morally wrong? And this is why humanity is being held back, because people like you are 100 years in the past.

"...humanity is being held back," from what?
