Piling cliché upon cliché

    First Things: Judge McShane opens his opinion with a lengthy discussion of just how normal the plaintiffs are. They love one another. They’re in a committed relationship. They’re financially successful. They pay taxes. Meanwhile, the “state affords the same set of rights and privileges to Tristan and Isolde that it affords to a Hollywood celebrity waking up in Las Vegas with a blurry memory and a ringed finger.” The argument (such as it is) is downright conservative: Judge McShane, à la Andrew Sullivan, sets up same-sex marriage as a bastion of moral and civic virtue against the squalor of the wider culture.

    Christian Post: Without a doubt, this issue will become a great dividing line in the Church, and I for one welcome it, since it points to a much deeper divide in our approach to God, His Word, and the people He wants to redeem. Ultimately, it will separate those who put God first and ask, “How can I fulfill His desires?” from those who put themselves first and ask, “How can He fulfill my desires?”
