Gay marriage a "slippery slope"?

By David Limbaugh.

"What surprises me is not the cultural pressure to abandon traditional values, but the lame resistance of traditionalists. Apathy is one thing, but rolling over without a fight is quite another.

Part of this is attributable to complacency: Everything is "no big deal" – let's just live and let live. But also involved is a willful ignorance of the inevitable implications of losing the culture war.

More significant than either complacency or ignorance, though, is our acute moral negligence, which is probably born of our cowardice. That is, we are often unwilling to stand up for what we know is right (moral negligence) because we don't have the courage to withstand the ridicule of the politically correct thought police."
