washingtonpost.com: Dean Says Faith Swayed Decision on Gay Unions
I don't like politics, and I don't like voting, and this is one of the reasons why. The folks who agree feel somehow justified since a governor has now made the connection, and anyone disagreeing will yell a whole lot more "he's wrong!" than have anything constructive to the conversation. Anyone disagreeing here but still planning on voting for him as the best chance for dems in the '04 election will have to look the other way on this one. Nothing here moves us towards some form of real God-honoring, loving and just resolution.
All that to say: the only reason for popping this out is to make yourself look good to voters. A simple "I felt it was the right thing to do" would've done the same thing; but bringing in "God told me so" whacks it up a few notches, doesn't it?
