After finally breaking down and seeing "Jesus Camp"

People complain that the religious right is involved in politics, and the alliance between the fundamentalists and corporate America is nowhere more absurd than the fundamentalist rejection Global Warming. But the fundamentalists are involved in politics for religious reasons, and their behavior makes no sense as "politics".

Republican payback is expected on abortion and gay rights, and there are no issues that are less political. Politics is about helping your friends and hurting your enemies, so, by encouraging gay people to breed while denying liberals the right to terminate their pregnancies, a pro-choice anti-gay platform will only increase the number of gay liberals.

Heh, good one Barrow. But let's factor in the wildcard of what happens to a large family produced by a homosexual father and hetero mother(really the only possibility). Surely you would be introducing a new sociopathic strain of fearfully repressed, insanely schidzoid personalities who would welcome the authority of a un-nuanced neo facsict republican ideology.
But really, given the number of closeted republicans self-destructing lately I think any speculation on the GOP's gay strategy is pretty much a crap throw. No pun intended.
