    As a conservative I find that very offensive:

    #1 I’m all for gay marriage, I think homosexual folks should be able to be just as miserable as the rest of us,
    #2 I’m all for abortion, I think all liberals should exercise their right and get one… or a lot of them.
    #3 Alcohol is a drug, I love alcohol.
    #4 Don’t like sex? Come on… We just think it should be done within the confines of marriage. I mean look at how many times Rush and Newt have been married… those guys LOVE sex too.
    #5 Nobody likes having their rights taken away, but both sides of the aisle do it quite a lot and/or look the other way when a group they don’t belong to gets theirs taken away.

      I find it interesting how you point out how you find this image offensive, only to turn around and mention #2, suggesting liberals should get “a lot” of abortions. Joking or not, that would be and should be offensive to anyone. This is a perfect example of the double-standard that the image is pointing out.

      The image does not (nor I) suggest that all conservatives think this way, it’s only pointing out the double standards that many of them seem to broadcast. I hear conservatives complaining about their rights being taken away, although which ones are still a mystery to me, yet turn around and yell about restricting the rights of others. That’s the hypocrisy. Let’s say that conservatives have a valid argument in the case of having their rights taken away, how does that justify them taking the rights away from other’s. Two wrongs don’t make a right, and taking away other’s rights doesn’t restore your own. If conservatives have a problem with their rights being taken away, perhaps they should fight for those rights instead of pissing on everyone else’s.

      Conservatives need to keep in mind that items one and two are religion based arguments, a religion that not everyone practices, and maintaining the fact that this is a country of numerous religions (or none at all) that not everyone believes what others believe. This image is suggesting that if you have a problem with something, don’t engage in it, very simple. If God truly has a problem with these things, let him sort it out, let him be the judge.

      This argument is no different than the arguments regarding censorship in the past, the very reason we have censorship of radio and television in the United States is akin to the gay marriage and abortion critics of today. A father listening to a New York radio station as it aired George Carlin’s famous “seven dirty words” routine was offended, complained to the FCC and before long it was determined that the FCC was allowed to regulate any material distributed through publicly-owned wavelengths. The common response to this father’s complaint was, “if you don’t like what you’re hearing, change the channel.” Don’t like what you’re watching, change the channel. Don’t like what you’re reading, turn the page. This image is saying the exact same thing, only applying it to issues of today.
