Who Should Marry? Who Should Decide?

May 21, 2008

Today I take on perhaps my most right-wing fundamentalist guest yet: Bruce Hawkins, a “highly skilled political strategist” for the three most Radical Right-Wing candidates ever to run for President: Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan, and Mike Huckabee.
I encourage everyone to call in and join in the debate.
Please let my guest know that substantial parts of America still believe that equal rights for all should prevail over his vision of a Taliban-like theocracy where the Government dictates religion and marriage partners for all.

California Allows Gay People to Marry!

May 15, 2008

The California Supreme Court has just made California the second state in the nation to allow gay people to legally marry. Now 1 in 6 Americans live in a state where gay people have equality under the law.
I predicted that 25 years after Massachusetts, gay people would be allowed to marry nationwide. Four years after the first state, California has become the second. Expect the pace to quicken as Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maryland, and Oregon all follow suit over the next three to five years. (You heard it here first.)

Happy 60th Anniversary, Israel!

May 14, 2008

By every indication, Israel and the Jewish People should have been extinguished from the world stage more than 2500 years ago. In every generation and in every location, Jews have prayed for thousands of years, “Enemies seek to destroy us and God has saved us.”
The very existence of the State of Israel — warts and all — is as miraculous as the survival of one of the oldest peoples on Earth in the face of implacable enemies.
Today, on the Inside Scoop, the story of Jewish renewal and rebirth in their Judean homeland (from which they were named) in the face of fierce odds. Like the Arabs of Arabia, the Indians of India, and virtually all national, anti-colonial movements, Israel was born in fierce bloodshed, fighting simultaneously the British and the Arabs.
For a fascinating account of Israel at age 10, check out this interview between Mike Wallace and Abba Eban, Israel’s ambassador to the United States 50 years ago. Try to ignore the cigarette commercials. 🙂
