I have to say that if I still watched Sesame Street and saw this segment I wouldn’t have thought “same-sex marriage.” Sometimes I feel the need to just blog on something and don’t think it through thoroughly. I confess I read the first few paragraphs of Bishop Nickless’s letter and saw red. I closed the window and started blogging. But then I reopened the link and read the whole piece. I was glad I did. There’s some good stuff in there. Bishop Nickless will lose a lot of readers for his opening salvo. But then again, often what we do or write or say has consequences more or less appropriate to the occasion.
I give the Crunchy Con credit for conceding:
I jumped the gun on this one, and was stupid to have done so.
For the record, I thought Grover did a nice job eliciting the meaning of marriage from the young lad. Rather than indulge the hermeneutic of subtraction, let’s stay positive. How would you explain the meaning of marriage to a four or five-year-old in an understandable way?
