A look back at today's top stories

GAY ISSUES

Dan Savage is tired of hearing from Christian liberals who say that they "are not at all" like the Christian Right and he wants them to make themselves heard. Speaking of the right, Amy Davidson of The New Yorker added her two cents about Supreme Court Justice Scalia's recent angry and homophobic comments

A few stories involving good news on the marriage equality front. A new poll in Indiana shows that a majority of voters are against a proposed ban on gay marriage. In Illinois lawmakers are reportedly pushing for a January vote on a proposed marriage equality law. Also a poll in Washington shows that people really believe love is the deciding factor for same-sex marriage

  2. Very poignant point Dan Savage makes here. Christians truly don't call out their own enough. Maybe if they did, there wouldnt be so many followers leaving the Church. As it stands, todays generation has the least amount of folks who admit to attending Chruch, or being affiliated to religion.

    Christians themselves only have themselves to blame for that

  3. @Kyle: I'm Christian and I agree. Part of the problem is that the rather full spectrum of Christians to the left of the Religious Right don't know about them or pretend that if they are ignored they will go away. Listen up readers of TR - you keep saying that if we ignore the Bryan Fischers of the world they will go away. Lots of Christians have been doing so for ages and it hasn't happened.
