Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

Gay Patriot curiously qualifies his praise of conservative openness toward Teh Gay:
We have, by and large, found welcome on the right. And over time, the intolerance on the left makes us stronger. And helps us judge the character of our interlocutors. For while we often deal with liberal bigotry, we also frequently find open-minded “progressives” who in their interactions with us demonstrate an ability to rise above the prejudices of their peers.
"By and large." Mostly welcoming, in other words. He has found welcome except for the Teabaggers, the entire Religious Right, the old geezers, the military types, and the economic conservatives with 1950s attitudes toward homosexuality.

So, the right is very accepting and welcoming except for the 4/5ths of it that isn't. At all.
