AN OVERHEATED DEBATE: Blogcritics imitates the Church of England, ripping itself to shreds over homosexuality. A disturbing number of participants in the debate seem to have a 'they can't help it, poor dears' attitude, and we're still not sure what Eric Olsen is trying to say: "I, unlike you, do not equate attitudes toward homosexuality with attitudes toward race. I believe it is in society's interest to be "totally neutral" regarding race, I believe it is in society's interest to be legally neutral regarding homosexuality but to maintain a general preference for monogomous heterosexuality - it already has this, no need to do anything to further encourage monogomous heterosexuality. We still need to do more to discourage unequal legal treatment and to discourage discrimination against individuals." Maybe they should drop the 'A sinister cabal of superior bloggers on music, books, film, popular culture, and technology - updated continuously' strapline and replace it with 'Not that there's anything wrong with it, like, it'd just be better for everyone if they didn't do it, wouldn't it?'
