    When did he say that?

    Not necessarily. Who claimed it did?

    No, I said that I hate the ideology that promotes the various traits that I see prevalent within modern conservative ideology. I can respect a good argument from the right-wing, when I see it.

    Why would that be the case unless you believe certain things to be constatnly true about anyone who IDs themselves as conservative?
    It's not constant, but it is consistent with the ideology you identify with. It's a generalization on my part, to be sure. I believe there are exceptions to every rule.

    I'm pretty sure my views on gay rights would blow your tiny mind.
    My tiny mind is pleased to know that. If we agree on some gay views, then that's great.

    He says it all the time - proudly. I'd be really surprised if he even disagreed with me. He even had it in his little blog here but it looks like he's, for some reason, restricted access to it. Wonder why.

    I am a religious person on the political right so yes, it would be fair to say that I am "Religious Right".

    Not really. You don't seem particularly evangelical. Logicman would be an example of "religious right."

    If he says it all the time, proudly, then it shouldn't be too hard to link to a post where he said he hates everything about the right.

    Oh no. You should not assume that you and I are on the same "side" of anything. There is nobody's approval that could want less. There's nobody here I have less respect for (which, I'm sure is mutual).

    Why can't we see your blog, here, any more? I can appreciate how you're trying to bury the crazy stuff you've said before, but what you're saying now is markedly different than other claims you've made. Do you deny that?
