Hillary Joins the Compassionate Ones on SSM

 

Hillary has now announced she now supports same-sex marriage after many years of opposing it. Actually, Hillary’s articulated support for the natural family has been quite clear and well thought out through the years, significantly more so than many of her liberal peers trying to walk a tight-rope for political reasons.

Here are two of the most notable examples:

Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.

And, from It Takes a Village:

[E]very society requires a critical mass of families that fit the traditional ideal . . . an adult mother and father and the children to whom they are biologically related . . . both to meet the needs of most children and to serve as a model for other adults who are raising children in difficult circumstances. We are at risk of losing that critical mass in America today.

Is it conceivable that both Clinton and President Obama, who has recently “evolved” on the issue, did not recognize this “fundamental civil right for all American citizens” (as they phrase it in the current, sound-bite tested rhetoric) before now? Or did they not really believe what they previously said about the importance of marriage as an institution binding men and women to one another? Either conclusion is deeply troubling if we are to take them at their word.

How Seinfeld Mastered the Comedy Domain

I can’t say whether Larry Charles, Larry David, Alec Berg, Spike Feresten, and the rest of the brilliant writers of Seinfeld were students of F. Scott Fitzgerald, but they might as well have been. Fitzgerald supplied the best advice for sitcom writers: Start with an individual, and before you know it you find ... Read More
