We have to do a better job of contending for Truth upstream of politics: In the culture, and in people's imaginations!

Were we really surprised? President Obama announced, after years of opposing so-called "same sex marriage," that he is now for it. "I think same sex couples should be able to get married," he said.

That's quite a change of heart, especially since the day before, so-called gay "marriage" was soundly rejected by the citizens of North Carolina, who voted 61 to 39 percent against gay "marriage." Was the timing of his announcement a coincidence? I don't think so. For one thing, the gay-rights movement was extremely up-set by the North Carolina verdict. And adding further pressure on the President, his Vice-President, Joe Biden, came out for gay "marriage" the week before.

Folks, this is pure politics. But what's more important than the President's pronouncement, was something Joe Biden said about gay "marriage" on "Meet the Press."

According to Biden, the television show "'Will and Grace' probably did more to educate the American public [on homosexuality] than almost anything [else]." …

The President's announcement notwithstanding, we have "won" nearly all of the political battles concerning so-called same-sex "marriage." But if we want to preserve marriage, we have to do a better job of contending for Truth upstream of politics: In the culture, and in people's imaginations.
