I’ve had people try to tell me that Ross Douthat may be conservative, but that he’s a thoughtful and interesting guy. My response usually involves incredulous, speechless goggling at them, but now I’ve got one pithy response:
New York Times columnist Ross Douthat spoke at a fundraising event for the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a right-wing legal group that works to defend anti-LGBT discrimination and supported the criminalization of homosexuality.
He wasn’t there to voice opposition to the ongoing ADF nonsense, either. What next? Will he attend a KKK meeting to give the reasonable, conservative position on the black community?
OK, maybe that’s too extreme. Instead, he’ll just send messages of sympathy to the Kansas couple suing The Gays for stealing marriage from them.
