Conservative?

leave a comment »

There’s a short, interesting comment on the relationship between the term “conservative” and support for SSM at the Anal Philosopher. I like and agree with Burgess’ conclusion. He says that although people can disagree over terms, he:

… conceive[s] of conservatism as traditionalism. There is no human institution that is older, more traditional, or more important—given its connection to childrearing—than monogamous heterosexual marriage. Claiming to be a conservative while supporting homosexual “marriage” is like claiming to be a Christian while denying the divinity of Jesus.

There are some whose conservatism is only support for a free market. That’s great but guys? It’s hard to sell that to people who know that they won’t be able to compete very well.
