Jail the gays, blah blah blah

The death throes of the anti-gay movement. From Equality Matters:

On Tuesday, WND posted some “exclusive commentary” by Josh Craddock, a 19-year-old rising sophomore at King’s College in New York who isn’t too happy with the way things are going in the fight over LGBT equality.

Craddock criticizes social conservative groups like Focus on the Family for refusing to advocate for the criminalization of homosexual behavior, arguing that the fight over same-sex marriage has been a “diversion” away from the “real battle” over the “morality of homosexuality itself”:
America's Founding Fathers would be shocked, since they followed lock-step with Christian Western tradition that criminalized homosexuality.

Today's conservative Christian leaders believe what was scandalous just 30 years ago: that homosexuality should be legal. Back in the Dark Ages, way back in 1986 when the Supreme Court upheld Georgia's anti-sodomy law, Christian leaders actually believed that homosexual behavior should be criminal. Their beliefs have changed rather quickly with the culture, preferring to garner social acceptance through a moral fluidity that reminds me of Groucho Marx's quip: "If you don't like my principles, I have others."

Despite victories for traditional marriage in states across the Union, social conservatives are losing because they've missed the heart of the issue. Same-sex marriage is a diversion. The real battle is over the morality of homosexuality itself. [emphasis added]
It's so cute when 19 year olds try to be "controversial."
