Uncommon Commentary #467: The Left Is Not Right

To a Christian, there ought to be no question that the US Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage is morally wrong.  Whether it’s constitutionally wrong depends on whether one applies a narrow or a broad interpretation to the US Constitution, specifically to the provision in Article XIV for “equal protection under the law”.  Whether the ruling is constitutionally correct or incorrect is, however, rather a moot question.  The mere fact that the Left is using this revered founding document to advance its socio-political agenda ought to teach a lesson to my comrades in the Culture War, who persist in the belief that our country’s greatest strength is its form of government.  In my opinion, “American democracy” is one of the chief reasons why the USA can no longer be considered Christian.
