Eugene Delgaudio: No Time for Sitting it out "Churches: Time to fight back"
Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advoate says "We have to spread the word far and wide, telling people why we oppose homosexual marriage, and everything else that gets bundled with it."
Michael Reagan says:
You can't win the fight if you don't put on the gloves. A punch-drunk, old heavyweight boxer knows that's a truism, but not the churches of America.
The Supreme Court heard arguments this week on the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state by a 52 to 47 margin in 2008 but has since been declared unconstitutional by federal courts.
Fox TV, Rush Limbaugh and other talk-show pundits have weighed in, arguing the conservative - and moral - position that sanctifying gay marriage with the grace of the U.S. Constitution is not only wrong but a serious threat to the culture of this country.
But those media outlets often speak to those who are already in the choir. That leaves a lot of other Americans who aren't hearing anyone preaching the conservative argument on gay marriage.
