How I became an evangelical voice for marriage quality

    First Things: Evangelicals are changing their minds on gay marriage. So argues the Log Cabin Republicans’ David Lampo in a recent op-ed in the Daily Caller. In defense of his thesis, Lampo trots out the examples of two prominent evolved evangelicals: David Blankenhorn and yours truly. The problem here is that Blankenhorn is not an Evangelical and I have not changed my mind on gay marriage. If David and I are the two best examples of an evangelical evolution, it ain’t happening.

Reuters and religious freedom: When a two-sided news story really only tells one

    GetReligion: Here’s what Greg Scott, the Alliance Defending Freedom’s vice president for media communications, told me in an email: “It is a gross mischaracterization to frame these cases as a business owner desiring to “deny service” or interrupt a generic goods transaction because of a person’s professed or perceived sexual preferences. The question is whether the government will have the power to force citizens to communicate messages or participate in events against their will or face severe punishment for refusing such government mandates…”

Former homosexual warns America of “unmitigated disaster” of marriage redefinition

    Nathan Cherry: Activists pushing for the legalization of same-sex “marriage” don’t want you to hear from former homosexuals. In their world there is no such thing. Anyone claiming to be a “former homosexual” is, in their opinion, either a liar suppressing their true identity, or they never were really a homosexual. I’m not sure how someone can claim to be a homosexual without ever really being one – it doesn’t seem like something you do as a recreational past time.
