Liberty takes a step forward

June 26, 2015

The simple fact is this: the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges gives a measure more personal liberty to gays and lesbians. It harms no heterosexual marriage. And it no more prevents preachers from condemning gay sex than it prevents them from condemning drink, shellfish, lust, or anything else a religion might condemn, that the rest of us do without care for religion.

It is a step forward for personal liberty. As with many such steps, it will be damned by the falsely labeled “liberty movement.”

    As I peruse the opinions of the dissenters in the Court today, I am amazed how blind to social justice tradition they actually are when they use “social tradition” to justify their opinions. Long-lived traditions are mostly sustained without the participation of the oppressed, and therefore, liberty for minorities has always, traditionally, had to break with tradition!!!!
