This brings to mind two recent shows - one on gay marriage and one on whether the Tea Party is full of true believers or 5th Columnists out to discredit the movement. Footage has surfaced with Carl Paladino of New York talking to Hacidic Jews about how he is against gay marriage because it sends the wrong message to youth. This begs the question of what message he wants to send to gay youth. Some possible conservative messages are "you are disordered", "gay sex is disordered - so you might as well sleep around", "kill yourself - there is no hope" "God is uptight - so you better watch out" and "join the priesthood." Endorsing gay marriage does send different messages, among them "don't have sex unless you are in a loving relationship" and "sexuality is a gift from God", "you are wonderfully made", "you are just like everyone else", "your families have a right to celebrate your love - especially in Church" and "it will get better." The phones are open at 10, call 646-200-3496 to join the conversation.
