The issue, which Robby's post immediately below obscures, is whether my Christmas Eve post did what Robby earlier accused it of doing, namely, suggested that there is an equivalence--a moral equivalence--between racists and those who believe that same-sex sexual conduct is always and everywhere necessarily and gravely immoral. As I explained, that "equivalent to racists" construal of my post was a misconstrual. I can't tell from Robby's post below, or from his posted response to Cathy Kaveny, whether Robby still adheres to that "equivalent to racists" misconstrual of my Christmas Eve post.
Robby, with your permission, I'd like to put this blurb on the back of my next book: "Michael Perry is, at least sometimes, insincere, a hypocrite, keeps up pretences, and smears those who disagree with him. These are among his tactics in the games he plays. So if you're thinking of reading this book, be on guard!" --Robert George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
