Political correctness

I laud the Metroplex Republicans and Log Cabin Republicans for their more economically conservative values and have long welcomed them for their political support in the Republican Party.

But on the other side of that coin, “gays” should understand that they remain an enigma, long at odds with the predominant Republican view of nature’s physiological intentions for normal sexual conduct.

While the law protects the sexual proclivities of consenting adults in private, their public pronouncement in a fully contrary political setting is another thing.

The Republican Party of Texas is right in not subordinating core values in its convention. Signage on a convention booth that advertises a contrary value shouldn’t be allowed, no matter the issue or who’s in attendance.

For the party, selling values to gain a vote is wrong. “Discriminating” between what’s right and wrong defies political correctness, but it’s the right and honest thing to do.
