You’re Either For Us Or Against Us

The hue and cry by the GLBT community’s leadership to eject Dr. Joel Edwards from the UK’s Equality and Human Rights Commission is all too predictable.  The secularists have already whined about his presence on the Commission.  But the complaining is based on a simple concept: if you don’t embrace our agenda, we don’t want you at all in any meaningful place in society, irrespective of the fact that you try to be even-handed or represent a viewpoint that’s "out there" in society.

Put another way, you’re either for us or against us.  But didn’t liberals here gripe about that kind of thinking when George W. Bush enunciated it concerning terrorists?  Maybe they play by different rules in the UK.  Maybe not.

Hmmm…
