You lose the religious argument because the Bible is clear that homosexual conduct is Sin and that marriage is between a Man and a Woman, and you lose the "civil rights" argument because you can't make a Moral Stand for sexual Immorality, so all that leaves you is a secular argument in favor of gay marriage and Polygamy. Unless you’re FOR gay marriage but AGAINST polygamous marriage? But how could THAT be? On what logical grounds would you deny polygamists the same privileges you want for homosexuals?

You skipped the apparently unanswerable question and focused on one of the two settled arguments that homosexuals can’t win because gay marriage is contradicted by Scripture and the Moral Authority on which the Civil Rights movement was based.

Maybe YOU can make a strong argument for gay marriage that excludes polygamists from demanding the same privileges as gays?

Go ahead, make your best case.

How about keeping government out of religion.

Perhaps history will show that the first black president’s biggest contribution to black America was forcing this community to come to terms with its own identity and priorities.

By formalizing his support of same sex marriage, President Obama has pushed blacks to decide what is most important to them. The Biblical message they hear in church every Sunday, or the big government liberalism that they regularly vote for on Tuesday of Election Day.

I’ve often talked about what I call the “Sunday-Tuesday Gap’ in black America.

The black church has always played a central role in black American life. Blacks...
