Gay Marriage Culture War

“New careers on both sides will grow out of this,” says Michael Cromartie, director of the Evangelical Studies Project at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. There’s little — ok, no — religious nuance in Alan Cooperman‘s Washington Post report on the “institutionalization” of “both sides” in the gay marriage dispute, but Cooperman does follow the money — in terms of careers and lives that will be built, for at least awhile, around the task of lobbying for or against gay marriage. That’s an important reminder that religiously charged disputes mean more than morality and “culture war” — they mean gravy for all.
