God is benevolent, not stupid.
You see, unlike a whole lot of others here, I don't give a rats ass who you married, what you do in your own home, nor do I care how "right" or "wrong" such behavior is. You see, I've got my own family. I'm married with three kids. I care about what goes on my home. I care about things that affect my family, not yours. Ergo, selfish indifference is the mother of all freedom. Do I think your so-called 'deviant' lifestyle is going to affect my family? Hell no, and if it does its not so deviant is it? All know is I got problems aplenty, and your lifestyle and arrangements are the absolute least of my worries.
So good luck, do what you do, and make a life of it. I hope your family becomes productive and contributory. However, there are a few things you should know about conservatism that the 'values voters' and 'religious right' aren't quite portraying well.
1.) Indifference is the mother of freedom and independence. As you can tell from my words above, I want to leave you alone to do your thing. Not because I love you and think you are a beautiful and unique snowflake, but because I've got my own worries and really don't give a shit about you. So, return the favor! Stop voting for dims who want to remove me of my ability to defend my family from any criminal with more power than me. Stop caring about the methods I employ to keep my family safe. Stop voting for gun grabbers! You have a family now. You should know that the reasons and economic hardships that reduce a man to violent crime are not a justification for the criminal act itself. Stop caring about the guns I carry to defend my family. Just let me defend them, and I'll not have a problem letting you defend yours.
2.) Stop asking the government to take my money in order to give it to someone less fortunate. Don't ask the government to steal from me in your stead in order to grant you health care. If you want health care, earn it yourself. I want to leave you alone to do what you can do, leave me alone and let me tend to my families' needs as I see fit. You are a family man now, and the core of a family is responsibility. So take that responsibility upon yourself and make sure that you can pay for health care or insurance or both, and don't mooch off my tax dollars for basic health care needs. Socialized health care punishes all of us who are too wrapped up in our own families to care about yours. I'd rather not care about your family, just as sure you'd rather not care about mine. Let's go our ways and provide for our house and home as we see fit, as men should. If you want to live a brilliant and productive life, stop voting for the socialists! They only tear down individual families and scrap them wholesale for the good of the 'common man', which means the man who chooses to be lazy.
3.) Finally, start voting for real family values. I don't mean, "Christian Right" values. I mean real, tangible, family values. Such as the removal of the DoE, and other forms the federal government manifestations that ensure control over local communities.
In other words, now that you are married, become a log cabin conservative and don't be afraid to work for a future wherein the "Christian Right" has no hold on conservative politics and conservative politics itself is more Goldwater than Bush. You know, Goldwater, I'll leave you alone if you leave everyone else alone....that's what you should be striving for. A nation of indifference with politicians that feel the same way, is a beautiful thing.
