Marriage and Politics in Post-Christian America

Watch John McCain on the "Ellen" show discussing, among other things, his opinions on the abomination of gay marriage. McCain spent years being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton but here does his best impersonation of the cowardly lion and refuses to put this ignorant women in her place. One can only surmise that ole John is either getting soft in the noggin or that he really couldn't care less about the issue. I'm thinking it could be both, but more likely the latter.

Meanwhile, Pat Buchanan addresses the matter with a bit more punch:

To say two men who live together and engage in sex can be married renders the idea and ideal of marriage meaningless. The court may declare it, but it cannot redefine an institution that nature and nature's God have already defined. As they say in Texas, you can put lipstick and earrings on a pig, and call her Peggy Sue, but it's still a pig.

"What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder," Christ taught. Through the Old Testament and into the epistles of St. Paul, homosexual sodomy is an abomination leading to personal destruction and damnation, one of the five sins that cry out to heaven for vengeance. How, then, can four judges declare it to be integral to the sacrament of marriage?

Evangelical voters will still show up and pull the lever for the Mad Bomber. When Buchanan was running, it was this same group and their anointed "leaders" that sabotaged his campaign in an attempt to carry Bob Dole across the finish line in the GOP primaries. If they could vote for the likes of Dole and Dubya, there is no reason to assume they won't vote for McCain, too.
