All You Need to Know About "2004 in religion"

Richard Dujardin has a long piece in today's Providence Journal titled "2004 in religion," and what a telling first sentence it has:

It was a year when many gay couples in Massachusetts rejoiced, being able to marry legally for the first time.

(In case you're wondering, the fact that, "with the help of religious conservatives, 11 states banned same-sex marriages" is held until the second to last sentence of the piece.)

Funny, because if there were any religious justification for same-sex marriage -- any at all -- then this would have been an open and shut First Amendment claim long ago.
