Conserv pastors to 'Draw a Line in the Sand'; will continue to disrespect line between civil/religious marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

I have learned that on May 23, a group of 100+ conservative pastors and "pro-family" leaders are going to gather in Washington, D.C., for what they are calling a "Draw a Line in the Sand Summit." They will demand that both President Obama and Mitt Romney further clarify their respective positions on same-sex marriage.

No word if either the incumbent or his challenger plan to dignify the proceedings. But considering both President Obama's years in Hawaii and his position on history's right side, I'm more than confident in his ability to navigate this terrain before the high tide that is equality inevitably washes away the contrived, discriminatory line.

Pagebreak-54

**Or actually, maybe they're calling it "Draw a Line in the Stand." That's the title Harry Jackson uses in this clip, where he also reveals that the thing is planned to be 24-hours long:
