What Paul would say to Matthew Vines

    The Stream: What interests me here is Vines’ tweeted claim that St. Paul would approve of homosexual couples and families if only he knew some. Using Jesus’ observation that we will know them by their fruits (MT 7:16) — the first chapter of his book is titled “A Tree and its Fruit” — Vines argues elsewhere that Christians should approve same-sex relationships because they bear good fruit. Apparently Paul didn’t see that kind of relationship in his world, but if he had seen it, he would have revised the opening of his letter to the Christians in Rome.

Republican candidates who go wobbly on marriage deserve to lose

    The Stream: Public opinion on same-sex “marriage” has shifted so quickly that major Democratic candidates for president in 2008 still had to pretend to believe in man-woman marriage (that is, “marriage”). It was only after Joe Biden gave the game away that President Obama officially endorsed same-sex marriage as soon as he did — in May 2012. By that time, a majority of Americans were just starting to tell pollsters they agreed. Now, a mere three years later, only the most stout-hearted public figures can make the man-woman marriage argument that Barack Obama was still making in April 2012.

Rather, it started in the most unremarkable way possible: with a graduate student trying to figure out a money issue.
