If you are tired of reading and hearing about the same-sex marriage debate and wish it would relegate itself to page 8 of the Metro section of your local paper, then join the crowd. I feel the same and I say this as a journalist whose biggest stories over the past 18 have centered on the issue.
But brace yourself because this issue is not going away any time soon. The pr0 same-sex marriage train is running down the track and on the surface their appears to be no one or group (including the evangelical church) willing to stop its momentum.
Still, I feel compelled to post an excellent op-ed penned titled by my new friend, Laura Hollis, who is an attorney and professor at Notre Dame. Laura researched and wrote the column with the high level of academic skill and diligence you would expect from someone at such a famed institution.
Laura’s column can be read here.
In addition, Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Baptists Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission has written a two-part exclusive for The Christian Post that looks at how the U.S. Supreme Court will view California’s Proposition 8 and issues surrounding the Defense of Marriage Act passed under the Clinton administration in 1996.
Part one and part two of Dr. Land’s series can be found here.
Interestingly, it is no “accident” that both President Clinton and Hillary Clinton have now joined President Obama in embracing same-sex marriage. Expect to hear more on the marriage front from Mrs. Clinton as 2016 nears.
Now, back to reading about the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and the upcoming MLB season.
