Mc, This is the problem of being a purist. If you examine most business's donations/gifts/causes supported, you will probably find things you cannot stand. And And do not forget business partners may have causes/statements you find objectionable. Thus you will end up not partaking of anything (or a very extreme few) because of being that pure. Most standard mutual funds or other investment options have companies that support causes we may not agree with. (There are a few investment options tailored to Christians and their purported stands that Christians take, but again, these are few and rare and probably not that great in results since they are so limited.) Unless one wants to live as a recluse or hermit, it is very difficult if not impossible being a purist because of the intertwined nature of economics.

That would be true Stan if marriage was available to only those that needed it to reproduce and to survive. That has not been the case for a long time. Marriage is open to anyone for any reason now. I can understand therefore why gays would want to be treated the same as heteros - to marry someone they love. Again, if it was strictly about procreation, then so be it. Marriage is not just about procreation anymore. The definition of marriage already changed on its own, without legislation and without any movements. The law is now catching up.

Richard, If your sources are true (I have not checked), then he could have stayed on. It may not have been comfortable, but he could have stayed employed.

WRH, Prager seems obsessed with the issue of Same Sex Marriage because he admits on his radio show that it has to do with blurring the lines of sexual differences. Prager is obsessed more so with man and woman differences than anything. He believes he has FEAR when it comes to this issue because he does not know how blurring differences (which I do not believe is happening btw) will make America in the future. From being a faithful listener since 2005 to Prager, I believe he is plain insecure when it comes to sex differences and that is why he places so much emphasis on it and the corollaries of same-sex marriage etc. He admits the future is unknown with the current cultural-sexual "blurrings" but I am still curious where this insecurity of his came from.

And on a related note, many Conservatives or anti-same sex marriage supporters will say that the people of CA spoke in those elections. With the vote almost being 50-50, that in no way means the "people" spoke. Almost just as many people in CA did not want prop-8 as did. In no way can it be said that the will of the people was overturned with such a narrow margin.

Prop 8 passed in California, by a wide margin. 52-48 is not a wide margin. The voters in no way supported it with such a narrow margin.

In a truly free society, businesses should be allowed to hire or fire people based upon their political positions (an any other position or belief). I could get all up in arms about this, but government was not involved here. That is where it becomes force-when government is used to silence people and thoughts. Since government is not involved in this, this is not a good example of suppression of speech or McCarthyism.

This. It is not exactly the same, but on a related note to when Prager qualifies George Will or Charles Krauthammer as "never being flamethrowers" before he reads a flamethrowing-like article from them because it somehow makes the point better when they write harsher articles about the subject or peson in question. I have wondered how many times can Prager say that before they actually are flamethrowers? Am I the only one who has noticed this?

Alex, The social conservatives in my area are leading the cause of a book banning. It is not enough that they keep their kids from reading a good book, but they insist on other children not reading it as well.

Quote: "we are at a crucial point in the history of America, and perhaps approaching a point of no return..." Many of us believe that point of no return was reached a long time ago. I think many others instinctively or subconsciously know this and this is why the fighting continues. I seldom disagree with Sowell and this is one instance. I think he still hold out hope the system can be changed by the right people in office. I do not share this hope any longer.
