Oh You Theocrats! But what's the second act?

Just in time to (possibly) answer Karl Rove's prayers, comes now the Religious Coalition for Marriage, featuring among others Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, Executive Vice President, Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, who boldly
take the unprecedented stand of uniting to call for a constitutional amendment to establish a uniform national definition of marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman. We are convinced that this is the only measure that will adequately protect marriage from those who would circumvent the legislative process and force a redefinition of it on the whole of our society.
While it's a given that homophobia makes for strange bedfellows, I'd rather look forward (past the OUT-magazine boycott of OU products, for example) and consider the next stage of the coalition.

Will these spiritual leaders find common cause in banning divorce? Intermarriage? Pork and shrimp?

Too divisive. So hold your breath for the Holy Wedge Issue of 2008: A Constitutional Amendment to Protect Marriage by Banning Masturbation and PreMarital Kissing. If everything they told us in NCSY is true, God will truly bless America once that one is enacted. TrackBack
