I somehow missed this on Fiat Lux when it came out.  The suggestion is that some evangelicals in the United Kingdom and the United States are changing their position on gay marriage.  You can see Jim’s whole piece here.  Most interesting to me are links to two op ed pieces.  The first is jointly written by David Blankenhorn (a conservative) and Jonathan Rauch (a liberal) called A Reconciliation on Gay Marriage  (suggesting a way to compromise).  The second is by William Saletan called This is the Way the Culture Wars End.  I don’t agree with either of them.  But they offer a lot of food for thought.  And they both try to suggest a way forward where people who disagree actually talk to each other in good faith, rather then demonize each other.  I certainly like that idea.
