ZenTiger Diversity and Discrimination

I came across a blog recommended by Chuck Bird: What Does The Research Really Say? by Dale O'Leary. It seems to focus on gender and sexuality issues, from a conservative viewpoint. It seems well thought out and not afraid to cite studies and references to support their argument. I've added Dale to our sidebar. The latest post covers the topic of diversity and discrimination. Like, if we are going to allow diversity of opinions and beliefs, then that should also include the beliefs of social conservatives!
We are currently in the midst of a culture war. On one side we have the Sexual Left – Radical Feminists, Sexual Revolutionaries, followers of Alfred Kinsey and Margaret Sanger, and members of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Queer coalition (sometimes labeled as sexual minorities). On the other side we have Social Conservatives — those who belong to faith traditions which hold that life begins at conception and sexual activity belongs in marriage and that marriage is defined as the union between one man and one woman. Those who hold this view believe that the evidence supports their contention that society is best served when life is protected and marriage affirmed.

Because these two views are so divergent and because they involve such intimate aspects of a person’s life, it is important that the freedom of the individual seeking psychological counseling or medical care be protected. It is also important that the rights of medical professionals and hospitals to not provide services they feel are immoral or contrary to the best interests of patients be protected.
Worth a read. Check it out.
