Cynthia Yockey, A Conservative Lesbian

I still have not forgiven Jon Stewart for his deranged rant against Gov. Sarah Palin last year. I definitely will never let him live it down. But this helps:
I’m participating in an interesting discussion over at Villainous Company, to which you also contributed. How’m I doing, do ya think?
I Call BS,
I scanned through the remarks and as I recall, we both favor marriage equality for homosexuals, and I appreciate the support, but I approach the discussion by looking for common ground and people’s positive qualities and going from there. People lock into their positions when they don’t feel heard and understood, so I try to begin by hearing and understanding.
Did CNN fact check this?
I agree that “people lock into their positions when they don’t feel heard and understood”. I’m trying to show them that their arguments don’t withstand examination. VC is a tough crowd. May the force be with you.
Though most over there won’t admit it, I think that they are largely moved by what they’ve read (or heard about) in what I call “ancient texts”, and the so-called “yuck” factor. They deny it, of course. MTFBWY
