    Why would this be a surprise Garamet?

    President George H.W. Bush was never big on social conservatism. He always seemed to be more libertarian in that aspect than anything.

    And I don't recall social conservatives ever lauding George H.W. Bush as their hero or icon.

    Garamet posted this without any snarky comments and with a factual title, I think you are just getting defensive Dayton since you know that socially you're on the side that's dying out on this issue.

    The fact it isn't that surprising is what makes a story like this cool. It shows that even among conservatives there is a growing acceptance and support of gay people.

    Socially the war is won, and full equal rights are an inevitability.

    What's ridiculous is that this is news at all.

    Dude went to a friend's wedding. So what?

    I think so, which is why I voted for it.

    I think it's a good law that gives gays what they wanted and protected religious freedom to choose at the same time.

    But, I can't help but think the war will only truly be won when stuff like this isn't news anymore.

    Yes, but the way to win the war is to report such news as long as it still is news.

    I didn't say they should stop.

    I said it's ridiculous that it is still news.

    A healthy hatred of homosexuals is a litmus test for GOP membership. Filthy RINO. :bailey:

    To be fair, this is a bigger story than the subject at hand. :bailey:

    Bush Sr. has class. While admirable, I fail to see how that is newsworthy.
