Glenn Reynolds The Judean People's Front!

BRIAN: Broth­ers! Broth­ers! We should be strug­gling together!

FRAN­CIS: We are! Ohh.

BRIAN: We mustn’t fight each other! Surely we should be united against the com­mon enemy!

EVERY­ONE: The Judean People’s Front?!

This is just fool­ish:

I was just dis­in­vited from a sched­uled speech by the Utah County, Utah GOP because — after a spe­cial meet­ing to dis­cuss the sub­ject — I was deemed “too con­tro­ver­sial” because of my sup­port for gay rights. Er, okay.

Hav­ing an unpaid speak­ing gig (which I sel­dom do any­more) can­celed is no hard­ship. And peo­ple are wel­come to believe what they want to believe, and invite whom they want to speak — but as the GOP looks at why they’re viewed as intol­er­ant, well, this kind of thing might be part of it. “Big tent” or teepee? Your choice.

Now if the speech had been at a Mor­mon or a Catholic Com­mence­ment I can see this (he is in favor of Gay Mar­riage & unless I’m very much mis­taken Abor­tion) but this is a speech to a GOP group Glenn & Instapun­dit has been one of the smartest and best voices on the right over the last 10 years. He has treated the GOP bet­ter than it deserves Any GOP or Tea Party group that would exclude him are fools.

On a per­sonal level I’m very Catholic, very against the nar­cis­sis­tic non­sense that is called “gay mar­riage” and about as anti-​abortion as you can get. I don’t make a secret of it and I’m sure Glenn and I dis­agree strongly on these issues and would be happy to debate him (or any one else) on these issue pub­licly or privately.

Yet Glenn Reynolds been kind enough to answer my let­ters before I blogged, pro­moted my links when they are wor­thy, hit my tip jar when it is needed and cor­rect my gram­mar when I’ve missed it and more impor­tantly thrown me the occa­sional word of encouragement…and we’ve never even met each other in person.

Glenn’s not Catholic (I don’t even know if he is Chris­t­ian) but he seems to be oper­at­ing under the fol­low­ing rule:

‘Amen, I say to you, what­ever you did for one of these least broth­ers of mine, you did for me.’ (Matt 25:40)

I’m lucky he doesn’t oper­ate under the stan­dard the Utah GOP does.

Update: The Utah GOP in Action!

No won­der they couldn’t get Mia Love elected

Update 2: Appar­ently not every­one in the Utah GOP is clue­less:

Good for him.

BRIAN: Brothers! Brothers! We should be struggling together!

FRANCIS: We are! Ohh.

BRIAN: We mustn’t fight each other! Surely we should be united against the common enemy!

EVERYONE: The Judean People’s Front?!

This is just foolish:

I was just disinvited from a scheduled speech by the Utah County, Utah GOP because — after a special meeting to discuss the subject — I was deemed “too controversial” because of my support for gay rights. Er, okay.

Having an unpaid speaking gig (which I seldom do anymore) canceled is no hardship. And people are welcome to believe what they want to believe, and invite whom they want to speak — but as the GOP looks at why they’re viewed as intolerant, well, this kind of thing might be part of it. “Big tent” or teepee? Your choice.

Now if the speech had been at a Mormon or a Catholic Commencement I can see this (he is in favor of Gay Marriage & unless I’m very much mistaken Abortion) but this is a speech to a GOP group Glenn & Instapundit has been one of the smartest and best voices on the right over the last 10 years. He has treated the GOP better than it deserves Any GOP or Tea Party group that would exclude him are fools.

On a personal level I’m very Catholic, very against the narcissistic nonsense that is called “gay marriage” and about as anti-abortion as you can get. I don’t make a secret of it and I’m sure Glenn and I disagree strongly on these issues and would be happy to debate him (or any one else) on these issue publicly or privately.

Yet Glenn Reynolds been kind enough to answer my letters before I blogged, promoted my links when they are worthy, hit my tip jar when it is needed and correct my grammar when I’ve missed it and more importantly thrown me the occasional word of encouragement…and we’ve never even met each other in person.

Glenn’s not Catholic (I don’t even know if he is Christian) but he seems to be operating under the following rule:

 ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.‘ (Matt 25:40)

I’m lucky he doesn’t operate under the standard the Utah GOP does.

Update: The Utah GOP in Action!

No wonder they couldn’t get Mia Love elected

Update 2: Apparently not everyone in the Utah GOP is clueless:

Good for him.
