The Keyes to the Kingdom

I can't help it, I love Alan Keyes. Okay, his reparations/no taxes for descendants of slaves is a screwy notion, but he had the guts to say this about homosexual marriage and the Vice-President's homosexual daughter:

His comments came during an interview with SIRIUS satellite radio.

Keyes said: "The essence of ... family life remains procreation. If we embrace homosexuality as a proper basis for marriage, we are saying that it's possible to have a marriage state that in principal excludes procreation and is based simply on the premise of selfish hedonism."

Asked whether that meant Mary Cheney "is a selfish hedonist," Keyes said: "That goes by definition. Of course she is." (Drudge)

Of course, Keyes is the kind of Republican that most conservatives fear. He thumps the Bible, he makes public judgments on the sins of others, and (no pun intended, but I enjoy the thought) he calls a spade a spade.

He is unelectable, too. We and, I suspect, he knows it, but he has the energy and will to fight the good fight in public; and occasionally upset the apple cart of moral complacency that so many Americans practice under the banner of "tolerance."

I thank God for his intolerance of evil even though that makes him (and me)beyond the Pale of polite society and ignominious acceptance of willful abnormalities and moral degeneracies.
