Without getting caught up in the substance of Newsweek's "religious case" for gay marriage, there's a side note which caught my eye. In an intro to the piece, editor Jon Meacham writes that, "This conservative resort to biblical authority [to oppose gay marriage] is the worst kind of fundamentalism."
Which is funny. I might have thought that the "worst sort of fundamentalism" would be the kind of fundamentalism that called for the execution of homosexuals.
Or, I don't know, maybe the kind of fundamentalism that routinely kills homosexuals as a matter of religious law.
This guy gets to run a giant national magazine? Seriously?
