Gay marriage partisanship

Indiepundit gives the best take I've seen anywhere on the gay marriage debate:

"Nobody said this marriage debate would be easy. I guess it goes to the heart of the question of modernity. Dreher sees it intrinsically bound to the failures of our modern culture. Sullivan says Dreher's vision of a return to an older, simpler past is impossible. ...

"Essentially I think that the wrong questions are being asked. Modernity is full of moral qualms, but there are good things that have emerged as well. We need to find a way to determine what is truly good, universally good, that has been, perhaps, uncovered only now--like equal rights for women or gays--and what is bad, morally decrepit, or dangerous to a society."

Please read the whole post.

As I said before, humanity is evolving. We must carefully consider what is truly spiritual and what may be old rules that bear no relevance to the understanding of ourselves as humans that we recognize today.
