Neoconservatives have often failed to disguise their disdain for gay people. Think of the last time an openly gay person wrote for the Weekly Standard. I wasn't aware of this quote from Irving Kristol, from twenty years ago, arguing that mere advocacy of gay rights need not be subject to First Amendment protections:
"I don't think the advocacy of homosexuality really falls under the First Amendment any more than the advocacy or publication of pornography does."
I wonder if he feels the same way today. And if he doesn't, I wonder why he has changed his mind.
