Two weeks ago, just after the Maineâ€™s successful reversal of the state legislatureâ€™s decision to sanction same-sex marriage, MSNBCâ€™s Contessa Brewer asked me a profound question: â€œWould Jesus have spent $550,000 to oppose same-sex marriage?â€
The question was exactly what many secular parties had been asking in Portland, Maine, where she was speaking to me by satellite. My answer was that Jesus would have given the money to oppose same-sex marriage. My reasoning was simple: Jesus would have upheld his own teaching; refusing to be a loving, permanent enabler of a misguided local government. I mentioned in the interview that Washington, DC was struggling with the same question.
