Click here for an essay by Charlton Heston
In a cultural war, triumph belongs to those who arm themselves with pride in who they are and then do the right thing. Not the most expedient thing, not what’ll sell, not the politically correct thing, but the right thing.

from a speech to the Free Congress Foundation
President Bill Clinton’s cultural shock troops participate in gay-rights fundraisers but boycott gun-rights fundraisers...and then claim it’s time to place homosexual men in tents with Boy Scouts, and suggest that sperm donor babies born into lesbian relationships are somehow better served and more loved. Such demands have nothing to do with equality. They’re about the currency of cultural war - money and votes - and the Clinton camp will let anyone in the tent if there’s a donkey on the hat, a check in the mail or some yen in the fortune cookie.
