Shouldn’t homosexuals have the right to marry if other Americans enjoy that right? Yes, they should. They have a right to form that union with a member of the opposite sex that we call marriage.
This isn’t just rhetoric. It is in fact a point that gets to the very heart of the matter, and traditionalists ignore it at their own peril.
In a segment with Megyn Kelly on the Wednesday edition of the O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly lamented how traditionalists don’t have a “compelling argument” on the faux-marriage issue and that all we can do is “thump the Bible.” But if theistic thumping is all O’Reilly hears, he needs an ear for something other than the mainstream media.

How mighty art thou, Tinseltown?
