Opponents of gay marriage tend to take the moral/religious high road. But Fred Clark (a thoughtful, liberal evangelical Christian and darn good blogger) makes a persuasive case that opposing gay (civil) marriage is actually sinful.
Civil marriage is a legal contract between individuals that bestows certain legal privileges (and responsibilities?). Gay civil marriage is a civil rights issue, and as Fred concludes, “‘Civil rights for me but not for thee,’ is not a morally defensible position. And much of the language directed against homosexuals this past year has simply been morally odious and despicable — i.e., sinful.”
