Rich Lowry reminds us this morning that the infamous culture wars are far from over, despite the Left's promise that Obama would save us from the "wedge issues" of those mean Republicans:
In a story about Hollywood's outrage at Obama's choice of Warren, Democratic political consultant Chad Griffin told the Los Angeles Times: "Rick Warren needs to realize that he is further dividing us at a time when the country needs to come together. I think he needs to gracefully step aside."
Ah, yes, "gracefully step aside." That's essentially what the cultural left has been asking traditionalists to do for 30 years now, to politely shut up while it goes about redefining the country's mores. The answer must now be, as it has always been, "No way, no how."
The U.S., as well as many other countries, is deeply infected with a growing cancer, an increasing acceptance of the right of two men or two women to "marry." Cancer is most effectively removed with a knife. And as we all learned in grade school science, a knife is nothing but a very sharp wedge.
