Conservative Christianity by Eshto Conservative Christianity by Eshto
Political cartoon that was published in the Badger Herald, a campus newspaper here in Madison. Printed Tuesday, February 7, 2006.

The context of this is important. I was pretty active in the fight against the constitutional ban on gay marriage and civil unions in my state. I wrote editorials and attended a lot of debates, including a public hearing at the state capitol.

I heard ALL of these ideas and much, much more (and worse) come straight from the mouths of the conservative politicians, religious leaders and average joes who supported this limitation on the rights of LGBT people. This includes Gundrum and Fitzgerald, the two lawmakers who wrote the amendment; Julaine Appling, leader of the Family Research Institute, an anti-gay group here in Wisconsin; a conservative lawyer who, I swear to god, said that it is ridiculous tha equality would apply to everyone (???); a crazy old man who said his Bible talks to him and that gay people caused hurricane Katrina.

So there are a few conservatives and/or Christians who take issue with this cartoon. Well you know what pal, if this upsets you, and if you don't feel this represents you or your beliefs, then it's not me you should be taking issue with. It's your leaders, and the homophobia ingrained in your cultures.

I'm a conservative Christian and some of my best friends are homosexuals! Yes, I do believe that homosexual acts are wrong, but I don't think it is worse than any other sexual sin (Ie- a Christian man lusting after a woman that he isn't married to)

Sadly true :( It's funny how people can be offended and can go against Christians, but us Christians can't be offended or go against other people's beliefs because it would hurt other people's feelings.......stupidity I say. And I thought this was America.
Oh, and that wasn't a hate comment ^^ In case anyone wondered ^_^ I do try to talk about this issue with all my other conservative friends, because unfortunately, there is a lot of homophobia :'( But homophobia is a SIN. >:( And I try to tell them that.

I see nothing wrong with this, I understand why Christians would be offended, but it's true, a commentary of sorts.
