As per the second post, however, I really did the wrong week for slow blogging. Since heading up to the Bay Area at the end of last month and determining to focus on other things, it has very much been the gay fortnight, first with a man (unfortunately) highly regarded in the gay community delivering a mean-spirited diatribe against Christians. This was not that man’s first foray into nasty rhetoric — or juvenile antics (and he’s no longer in secondary school).
Then came the Grenell matter where the Romney campaign awkwardly handled a situation which appeared to have become delicate. I will have a bit more to say on this, hopefully later this afternoon, but that post (on the awkward way the Romney campaign handled the matter) got delayed by the president’s (successful) ploy to raise campaign cash from the gay community.
If the president’s shift on gay marriage were sincere, wouldn’t he have made a stronger case for expanding the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, telling his fellow citizens why he believes this expansion to be a good thing for the individual couples — and for society at large?
Will try to keep up a steady blogging pace, but do hope you understand if I slow it down a bit for a few days.
