Whose religious trial is it anyway?

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday during California's Prop 8 chatter, we heard over and over again about how gay activists and allies are supposedly putting people's religious faith on trial. You know -- the exact sort of thing that these same social conservatives are doing to our President on a daily basis:

Reports say Obama admitted he's a Muslim [The American Family Association's One News Now]

Of course this particular personality is a Democrat and the faith in question is something other than evangelical Christianity. But the goal remains the same: Fear of progress. Resistance of the unknown. Purport to know better than what the person in the crosshairs is actually saying.

Religion on trial in the Prop 8 trial? PUH-LEEZE! The problem is that far too many of these modern day, evangelical social conservatives have appointed themselves the judge and jury of this daily trial that we call life!
