The Year of No-Culture War Has Become Another Culture War Year!

When I read the various blogs--and I read way too many--concerning the presidential race, it appeared that Iraq and the economy (stupid...or so I think that's how we're to say it these days), were going to be the crucial issues in the race. No Rove-Bush wedge issue like gay marriage and amendments to Constitutions.

Well, that was then, and this is now.

PFLAG is going to counter ex-gays at a "Love Won Out" a.k.a., Dobson inspired conference in Anchorage this coming week (click here); CA is going to vote on gay marriage, and VA might amend their constitution as well, outlawing LGBTQ partnership of any kind.

Voila! We're a wedge issue again.

These politics are not helpful anymore to the largely body politic, let along communities of faith. They divide and bitterly split families and communities.

Enough is enough.

Stop the madness...we have more pressing concerns on our plate.

And stop with the lipstick already...both sides.

Pace, B
