“One looking at Christian activities which are, in a sense, directed toward this present world…would find that this religion had, as a mere matter of historical fact, been the agent which preserved such secular civilization as survived the fall of the Roman Empire; that to it Europe owes the salvation, in those perilous ages, of civilized agriculture, architecture, laws, and literacy itself… He would find that this same religion has always been healing the sick and caring for the poor; that it has, more than any other, blessed marriage; and that arts and philosophy tend to flourish in its neighborhood.” C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 91
“The Harvard/San Francisco Democrat Party is the most pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, pro-socialist/communist, political party in the history of the United States.” Anon
“More Americans are embracing gay marriage, adding to calls from Democrats for President Barack Obama—who has said he’s not sure where he stands—[wink, wink, nudge, nudge!] to publicly express his support before the November elections.
“Mr. Obama opposes gay marriage, but for nearly the last 18 months has said his views are ‘evolving.’ Now he’s under pressure to make support for gay marriage part of his party’s election platform when he formally accepts the Democratic nomination in September.
“Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, chairman of the Democratic National Convention, said last week that a gay-marriage plank should be part of the platform, echoing recent comments from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Gay- rights activists say they have been making the case to the White House that polls show Mr. Obama has little to lose politically if he endorses gay marriage.
“The most recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll suggests that views on gay marriage are shifting faster than for any other hot-button social issue in recent memory, pollsters say.
Forty-nine percent of Americans now say they approve of gay marriage, up from 40% shortly after Mr. Obama took office in 2009. Mr. Obama’s stated stance makes him part of the 8% of respondents who are unsure how they feel about gay marriage, according to the poll released last week…Mr. Obama supports congressional repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, and asked the Justice Department to stop defending it.” Carol E.
