NICE DEMONSTRATION OF EXACTLY HOW OUT OF TOUCH THE RIGHT WING IS:
Look at this note by Kathryn Lopez from the "Corner" on National Review's website:

"BARBARA AND JENNA & THE GAY WEDDING [KJL]
"Yesterday it was reported that the Bush twins might be attending an upcoming gay 'wedding.' But before it becomes an urban legend: I am told by White House insiders that they are not attending. The misunderstanding can be chalked up to the young women being polite people."

It says all you need to know about the conservative movement that someone has to go to the trouble of issuing a denial (on background, no less!) to a conservative website that the President's daughters might honor a gay friend by attending the friend's wedding. (Also, note the irony of Lopez implying it was "polite" for the Bush daughters not to explicitly turn down the invitation. If Lopez is really committed to the belief that gay marriage is an abomination, she can't possibly feel that expressing that belief would be "impolite". Come on, Kathryn, if gay marriage has to be opposed to the point of not attending a friend's wedding (an impolite gesture in itself), then not explicitly turning down the invitation would seem to be a terrible compromise of one's principles, wouldn't it?)

And note, again, the use of "scare quotes" around the term "wedding"-- an issue I have commented on before. Apparently if you even use the term "gay marriage" or "gay wedding" without putting a derisive pair of quote marks around it, you are endorsing the gay rights agenda lock, stock, and barrel.

I really don't believe that smart conservatives (and Ms. Lopez is a smart conservative) really believe this trash. (I also don't believe that young conservative commentators believe this trash at all. Most college-educated people under age 40 had openly gay friends in college, and think it's no big deal.) I assume that the folks at National Review (Derbyshire aside) are playing to the bigotry of their supporters. (Lopez may very well believe that homosexuality is a sin-- she is, to my knowledge, a quite devout Catholic-- but that is a very different issue than deriding gays and making snarky and prejudiced remarks about them.)

Or at least I hope that's all they are doing.
