Jonah Goldberg (12/4, Opinion) writes that “gay-rights groups … and their allies are the aggressors in the culture war.” Goldberg implies that people ought not to work to change cultural traditions. But what if those traditions are unjust?
America has traditionally denied gay people equal civil rights, but that tradition is immoral. All Americans should have the same rights to freedom and self-development.
Would Goldberg have called slaves escaping their masters in the antebellum South “aggressors in the culture war?”
