I don't "cozy up" with any ideology that treats gays badly - correct, but I thought you may be missing the point.
Isn't it nice how I never insinuated that you might like racism? - missing the point.
Since you don't want to extend that courtesy to me here goes: [blah, blah, blah] - yes, I know you condemn those people.
The point is that many on the left (but not you) cannot see that their beliefs need improving and may be part of the problem. They aren't too good at self-awareness and self-criticism.
And this at a time when the left has become something of a joke and desperately needs to start improving its outlook and addressing certain issues in order to become relevant again.
In Britain, the right aren't doing too badly at this (it was David Cameron - a right-wing PM - who brought in same-sex marriage; Theresa May is another right-winger who's recently become the second female UK PM).
The left are lagging behind, at least in the UK (possibly in other countries, too).
