The responsible alternative to gay "marriage"

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Dec 15, 2003

After several years of non-stop cheerleading for same-sex marriage, the Boston Globe has allowed its "independent" ombudsman to spend a few moments wondering whether the coverage has been fair.

It's a fairly hilarious exercise.

The bottom line: After some ritualistic head-scratching and throat-clearing, the ombudsman solemnly reminds Globe reporters that there are some people who are not mindless hate-filled bigots, and oppose same-sex marriage. They are the people who prefer legal recognition of "civil unions."

Thus once again the Globe shows its willingness to cover the entire range of public opinion, from A to B.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Phil: What are the "catholic legislators" going to do? Is the Archbishop going to put it to them and give them hell? How about telling them they are betraying Christ if they don't profess their faith in the way they vote? Isn't it time that the church stopped pussyfooting around with these Judas'es? He should tell them they are jepordizing their immortal souls!!!!
