Under the leadership of David Cameron, Britain's Conservative Party has jettisoned much of its former opposition to gay rights. Cameron supported civil unions for gays and appointed a number of openly gay men to his shadow cabinet. Nick Herbert will explain the reasons for those changes and elaborate on the new Conservative social agenda. Will the United States follow the British example? Our distinguished panel will consider the future of gay people's participation in mainstream society and conservative politics on both sides of the Atlantic.

There's absolutely a place for gay people in conservatism.. Keep your sexuality to yourself, deal with homosexuality not being accepted as normal and, hence, not being qualified for marriage, and just keep your sexuality in the bedroom.. Take the rainbow stickers off your cars and stop pressing moral people to accept you as normal... I'd say that homosexual people can lead very successful careers in a conservative administration, as long as they don't throw their sexuality in our face... Just do your job, and be a fag in the bedroom.. No problem... No fag parades, no fag TV shows, etc, and I think that gays could make huge strides...Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

I disagree. Not with the idea that homosexuality should be something left in the bedroom - but with your assertion that there is no room for gay people. I think that there is room for gay people - but no room for overt homosexuality.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
