Mona Charen’s latest piece, “Defending Rick Warren,” is interesting. While the title leads one to believe it may be a sort of defense of Warren’s choice to speak at Obama’s inauguration, it’s actually more of a defense of his beliefs regarding gay marriage and thus traditional conservatives’ arguments against it.
What particularly outraged gay rights activists was a comment Warren made in a TV interview when he compared two homosexuals getting married to a brother marrying a sister or an adult marrying a child…And yet, the point Warren was making was a valid one.
From here, Charen details what supporters of gay marriage always call ‘the slippery slope’ argument in a way that is actually quite persuasive.
It’s worth a look.
