This Non-Religious Life Episode 75: Marriage Gets A Makeover


This week presented a monumental moment for same sex marriage. With SCOTUS overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and sending California’s Prop 8 back to the lower court which had already deemed it unconstitutional it seems that same sex marriage is well on its way to being the norm in the US.

This triumphal push toward equality has not been without its detractors. Tonight we talk about some of the crazier things which have happened since the SCOTUS ruling the other day. This Thursday, June 27 Bob, Jason and I will be making some pretty bold remarks I am sure you will all enjoy!

    Regarding the whole “how can they be pro-life but be pro-war, pro-death penalty, etc.” comments…

    That seems like a straw man and/or semantical argument. The term “pro-life” was adopted SPECIFICALLY as it refers to a particular stance on abortion. While the issues of war and the death penalty are important to debate, the comment above seems to lack nuance.

    I would probably also distinguish the death penalty/abortion issue by pointing out that there is a qualitative difference between ending the life of someone whom you believe has committed a crime and taking the life of a person (pro-life view) who hasn’t had a chance to make any choices in life (which also leads to the question, if one believes that the fetus is a full human person, does one person have the “choice,” at least morally, to end the life of another).

    P.S. Fix your graphics card 😉
