While You Were Out, Civilization was Changed.

From yesterday's ruling from San Francisco's Federal Circuit Court, striking down California's Proposition 8: "Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage".

Better make that a double, Joe.

The Un-Christianity.

The American Spectator reviews Mortal Follies: Episcopalians and the Crisis of Mainline Christianity, by William Murchison. He chronicles the decline of this historically critical Protestant denomination, correlated with its "rejection of orthodoxy in favor of cultural and political fads, regardless of the spiritual consequences".

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is now following a similar path. One hopes one will chronicle that tragedy as well.
