Rush and Elton

Rush Limbaugh is getting ripped from the right and from the left for inviting well-known gay pop superstar Elton John to sing at Limbaugh’s latest (fourth) wedding. I can understand the discomfort of conservatives … understand, but not agree with. If we can’t be around people unless we agree 100 percent with their lifestyles, then we will end up having few friendships, never mind few opportunities for influence. But the criticism from the left is kind of laughable, isn’t it? Are these critics saying Rush, who to my knowledge hasn’t made a big deal about homosexuality, isn’t bigoted enough? That’s a weird stance for a liberal to take.
