Martin Luther once said that the central test on the battlefield
is the soldier’s response in the face of the most pointed attack of the enemy:
“If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition,
every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the
world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ,
however boldly I may be professing Christianity. Where the battle rages the
loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle-field
besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point.”
Count Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck as the latest deserters in the
culture war and in the battle for sexual normalcy. They have flinched at
“precisely that little point which the world and the devil....are attacking,”
and so have forfeited the right to consider themselves any longer culture
Ann Coulter is the headliner at “Homocon 2010,” a September 25
gathering of so-called gay “conservatives.” And Glenn Beck has folded his hand
and cashed in his chips on the issue of gay marriage. Even Rush Limbaugh, who
supports counterfeit same-sex marriages in the form of civil unions, won’t go
Let’s be clear: endorsing homosexual behavior is not a
conservative position. Period. Supporting special rights based on aberrant
sexual behavior is not conservative, period. Supporting either civil unions or
marriages based entirely on using the alimentary canal for sexual purposes is
not conservative, period.
Even Darwinian evolutionists know better than to believe there is
something healthy about homosexual conduct. They know it cannot lead to the
propagation of the species, which, after all, is what evolution is supposed to
be all about.
Coulter justifies her Benedict Arnold impersonation by saying she
speaks all the time in hostile environments, such as Harvard. Okay, Ann, how
exactly is this a hostile environment? You’re being welcomed as a heroine, as
the Joan of Arc of homosexuality, literally the poster child for “Homocon
2010.” You are the goddess of gayness for the moment.
You will be received with a standing ovation for pandering to a
group that wants to put open homosexuals in the same showers and barracks with
sexually normal soldiers (priority #4) and is fiercely opposed to any attempt
to elevate protection for natural marriage to the Constitution (priority #7 -
You are taking money from people who want to destroy the U.S.
military and destroy the institution of marriage. Good luck getting us to
believe that’s a good thing.
You accuse Joseph Farah of being a “publicity whore.” But who is
the one here literally selling out her moral principles for a hefty wad of
cash? If Homocon is Elliott Spitzer, you are in danger of becoming the Ashley
Dupre of the conservative movement.
As far as Ronald Reagan’s dictum that "[t]he person who
agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally - not a 20
percent traitor," let’s have the average husband try that out on his wife.
“Honey, I’m faithful 80% of the time. There’s no reason for you to come after
me with the frying pan.”
Now you can redeem yourself by taking a strong stand at Homocon
2010 against open homosexual service in the military and against gay marriage.
If you take this opportunity to demonstrate your much-vaunted fearlessness by
getting right in the face of your hosts, all is forgiven.
Glenn Beck has completely and shamelessly surrendered on the issue
of gay marriage, and did so on Bill O’Reilly’s program, only the most watched
cable news program in all TV land.
Beck said “we have bigger fish to fry” than protecting natural
marriage, which, outside of being the bedrock and foundation of any healthy
society and the cornerstone of Western civilization, is apparently not that
important to Mr. Beck. He’s done this even though the members of his church,
the Mormon church, were willing to endure the slings and arrows of outrageous
fortune to defend natural marriage in California.
Even O’Reilly, who is a notorious squish on the subject of the
acceptability of homosexual behavior, was taken aback by Beck’s capitulation
and rightly accused him of “ignoring the
profound change in the American family.”
You can retract your surrender at your “Divine Destiny” event at
the Kennedy Center on August 27. If you do, all is forgiven.
Bottom line: August 27 is the Rubicon for Glenn Beck, and
September 25 for Ann Coulter.
Both Ms. Coulter and Mr. Beck seem, at least for the moment, to
have forgotten John Adams’ sage observation: “Our Constitution was made only
for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of
Here’s hoping - and praying - that both of these two former
stalwarts in the cause will come to their senses in time to return to their posts on the wall instead
of giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
Conservatives will be quick to forgive. But before forgiveness
