Like Barack Obama's views on same-sex marriage, will
Francis' views evolve? Possibly, but the extent to which he will enforce those
views on the Catholic Church (and hence, most of Christendom) is the key. And
that might take a longer time than the evolution of his thoughts on the
subject. In other words, America might find itself with another problem in the
culture wars: being pitted against the rest of the world's religious beliefs.
It is, already, of course, but the gap may widen and become impassable - that
is, if people like Tony Perkins and Scott Lively have anything to say about
Think of Uganda.
Love Makes A Family
In his State of the Union address, however, Barack Obama elevates same-sex love and puts it on a par with "traditional values."
He recognizes that love makes a family.
