Three reminders: December 2008
I quote Richard Cohen today:
“I’m opposed to redefinition of a 5,000-year definition of marriage,” Warren told Beliefnet.com’s Steve Waldman. “I’m opposed to having a brother and sister being together and calling that marriage. I’m opposed to an older guy marrying a child and calling that marriage. I’m opposed to one guy having multiple wives and calling that marriage.”
Waldman asked, “Do you think those are equivalent to gays getting married?”
“Oh, I do,” said Warren.
There you have the thinking of the man Obama has chosen above all other religious figures to represent him in this most solemn moment.
Lets cut to the chase; under 10 years ago that statement would not be very controversial except with maybe Andrew Sullivan. 20 years ago that statement would not be controversial at all.
And once the ICK factor moves the definition of acceptable will move as well and then Opus the Penguin will find his opposition to “Nun Beating” doesn’t makes him a prude, it will make him a bigot.
And one more from 2000 years ago
the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you

Update: If you are offended by this piece, too bad, because I’m old enough to remember when good liberals would have been offended to the extreme at the suggestion that their view and policies were promoting homosexuality let alone Gay Marriage.
