COMMENTARY – The coming of Armageddon



For once I agree with the Religious Right. In a July 30 conference call to ministers, fundamentalist leader Chuck Colson called the campaign to take away the right to marry from millions of Californians “the Armageddon of the culture war.”

I couldn’t agree more, although I suspect Colson wouldn’t view the campaign to pass Proposition 8 the same way I do. To understand my embrace of an idea promoted by the far right, you have to realize that every time marriage is on a ballot – as it is in three states  in November – we’re fighting two battles.
