RoadJoel Silbermann: I was wrong about gay marriage. "Ironically, I was even wrong about the idea of gay marriage being a political loser. Now it’s turning into a headache issue for Republicans and a winning wedge for Democrats. Who knew?! Not me. I guess I underestimated the political upside of being right. I hope I never make that mistake again. Most of all, I was wrong because I failed to see how much better our society would be if we corroborated our assertion that all people are created equal with the logical corollary that all love is created equal."

  1. Maybe the Anglican Church will be better off without Uganda. Have they done anything worthwhile lately?

  2. As someone that worked in medical research for over a decade, trust me, ignore single studies, even peer-reviewed ones, until there is a consensus. If something is true, then eventually multiple peer-reviewed medical studies will come up with the same conclusions. The reason this study is so controversial is because it appears to contradict many, many others. The most likely reason is because it was poorly designed. Also, studies focused on diet are notoriously difficult to do properly.

  3. From Silberman's article:

    "I never opposed gay marriage on principle. I have always believed -- and continue to believe -- that a legal contract available to one pair of people should also be available to another pair of people. Because of equality."

    So then I presume he also never opposed sibling marriage and parent-child marriage as well? Because of equality?

  4. @TKINSC. Your presumption of his presumtion has some flawed assumptions. Society limits choices within many different freedoms. You have freedom of speech as long as it doesn't involve the word bomb in a TSA check-in line, etc. The conversation is about the inequality (within a "created equal" governmental/societal framework)of denying freedom to a class of consenting, biologically distant adults for no reason other than how nature has formed them. The choices within that freedom exclude close blood related heterosexual marriage, I believe, based primarily on the genetic dangers of possible procreation. Though it is worth noting that first cousins are considered genetically distant enough to marry (in Florida, anyway) As far as distant blood similarities are concerned, I believe step siblings can marry and Woody Allen is proof enough that parents can marry their children (non-biological). Ick, but legal. Perhaps gay siblings or 80 year old heterosexuals will one day be allowed to marry. It may be creepy, but as long as the law, pro or con, is applied equally and fairly regardless of any sort of trait nature has bestowed upon someone that still leaves them capable to consent, it shouldn't be the legal business of the rest of us, either way.

  6. No, Obama did not take a selfie with Nye and Tyson.

    Is he holding a camera? No. Not a selfie.
