This article is addressed to my Catholic readers.
The issue of identity came to mind as I was reading an article at the Daily Caller about a man who identifies as both “gay” and “Republican” being accosted, apparently by “gay rights” activists.
A cast member of the gay reality TV show “A-List Dallas” tells The Daily Caller that he was punched to the ground and bloodied Friday night by someone vandalizing his car because he’s a gay conservative associated with commentator Ann Coulter.
Taylor Garrett, a Republican consultant in Texas who stars in the reality series on the channel LOGO TV, said in an interview that he was attacked outside a birthday party in Dallas after finding a vandal scratching “F–k Coulter” on the side of his car.
Garrett said the incident reflects a troubling mindset.
“The Democrats want me to live on their plantation as their slave, because I’m a gay person,” he said. “And I refuse to do that.”
Actually, what really got me to thinking about this in the context of “identity” was a post about it by Chris Wysocki: Is it a hate crime to beat up a gay Republican?
