yet you obviously couldn't even attempt to counter any of the facts in his post, why is that?

Conservatives are winning on the issues that really matter, and gay marriage could easily shift back the other way once social justice warriors can't use it as a battering ram issue for the left.
The culture war is over, and conservatives lost

It's time we conservatives accepted an alarming truth: Americans no longer agree with us

In recent months, it has been especially depressing to be a conservative. In the past, one could more easily endure the ranting of liberal commentators by taking solace that — outside of New York City and Washington, D.C.— most of the country was center-right. Thus, whenever an elite liberal commentator said something fringy, one could always console himself by saying (or at least thinking): "I hope you push that idea, because you'll keep losing elections in real America."

Today, conservatives have made a shocking discovery: They are the ones in danger of appearing out of touch with middle America.

conservatives might win a few battles, but they won't win the war.

Why conservatives are losing, and may deserve to lose, the culture war

If conservatives want to know why they’re losing the culture war, and why the so-called gay rights movement is effecting a political, social and legal revolution in America — on marriage, adoption, military service and a host of other issues — look no further than Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).

Graham is quoted in Saturday’s Washington Post about “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and, amazingly, says this:

The policy is a major change. There’s all kinds of evidence that some people can accommodate change; other people feel like they can’t accommodate the change.

In other words, the problem with openly gay service isn’t the gay activists who want to enforce public acceptance of open homosexuality; it’s religious and cultural traditionalists who are having difficulty “accommodat[ing] change”!

With political friends like this, who needs enemies?! In this, as in many other areas, Graham votes right while talking and winking left. He buys into many of the Left’s political and cultural presuppositions.

Unfortunately, Graham is not alone. In fact, the same thing could be said, unfortunately, about many conservatives: They become pathetically inarticulate and tongue-tied — and, therefore, de facto left-libertarians — on social and cultural issues. And I include here most conservative journalists.

Given this sad trajectory, it is only a matter of time before “gay marriage” becomes the social and legal norm in all of America, and “Heather Has Two Mommies” a noncontroversial cultural touchstone.

it makes me sad that the far right has annexed the term 'conservative'. no real conservative would back such platforms as antithetical to our founding goals as these far right freaks do...

I think I agree with Ted Cruz when he says that preteen boys are more fun physically, but the truth is I still like the fact that the older boys and I have something to talk about when we're together.

let's discuss your precious propaganda of Portugal-you see it as a success. Look at the White House site that keeps tracks of the deaths in Portugal since the drug laws changed-more deaths from drugs and less arrests--of course you can't arrest dead people. In Portugal the dead are not allowed to vote for democrats-like they can in urban controlled democrat areas in the United States. Only liberals consider death a successful program.

If you're a "real" conservative I'd hate to see what the fake ones look like, or are you simply saying you like girls with small breasts?
