Dear Justice Kennedy, Im sure you are getting flooded with words of congratulations from your admirers and words of criticism from your detractors, but please allow me to offer my own hearty thank you yet as a staunch critic of your decision, one of the most infamous in the history of our nation.

Over and over again we are told that we have lost the culture wars and that its time for us to throw in the towel and capitulate, especially as the Supreme Courts decision on redefining marriage is about to be announced (or has even been announced by the time you read this article).

I do not for a moment want to minimize the very real struggles of those who identify as transgender nor do I want to ignore those individuals who have genuine biological or genetic abnormalities.

Dear Gov. McCrory, With all due respect to your office and your many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I must say that I read your response to the congressional override of your veto to Senate Bill 2 with real disappointment.

Dear Tony, In the spirit of your public statement released yesterday, urging churches to welcome same-sex couples, Im writing this open letter to you, appealing to you to reconsider your decision before you bring further reproach to the gospel and hurt those you want to help.

You know the hour is late when God uses a gay atheist to bring a sobering wake-up call to the Church, but thats exactly what happened after Ireland, traditionally a bastion of Catholicism, voted to redefine the marriage.

When an influential political leader states that, when it comes to abortion, our Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed; when a New York Times columnist tells us we need to remove homosexual practice from our sin list; when the Solicitor General tells the Supreme Court that, potentially, religious schools could lose their tax exemption if they refuse to redefine marriage when statements like this are being made on a regular basis, dont tell me Im overreacting when I sound the alarm.
