The Right of Gays to Marry

Obama's endorsement of the right of gays to marry is a consequential watershed in the discourse that shapes our moral conceptions. The narrow framing of human agency and free choice by religion is authoritarian and certainly old fashioned.

We must all learn to let go and recognize that we cannot define and police morality, especially sexual preferences of other adults. The same arguments that are so often peddled against gays are similar to those that we privileged to criminalize black and white heterosexual marriages in the 19th and 20th century.

As they say we learn from history that we learn nothing from history.
