The Collision of Two Societies: Follow Up

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Just a Note: During the summer, I will try to post a new blog entry every other week, beginning next Monday, June 23.

Last week I wrote in response to the California Supreme Court’s decision to grant same-sex couples the right to marry, expressing my concern about the coming collision between religious liberty and personal freedom in the United States.

I was pleased to discover Marc Stern’s article in the L.A. Times, in which he says, from a legal standpoint, what I was trying to say from my own, religious viewpoint.  I am still concerned about the future of religious liberties in America, and I believe people of all faiths should be vigilant about erosion of First Amendment rights.  Please read Mr. Stern’s article, and feel free to comment.

  1. Ray – just a comment: I am impressed by the fact that a minister of the Word and Sacrament can “bless” a house, a barn, a tractor, a dog or cat, a pet snake and turtle, a corn field or airplane, but not all human relationships are worthy of a blessing without appropriate and careful discrimination (in the minds of some…). Adios, my friend – drs
