Stewart v. Huck on gay marriage

Posted By on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 at 6:10 AM

Interesting. Jon Stewart gave Mike Huckabee most of the Daily Show last night, ostensibly to discuss his book. He worked him over on conflicting messages about government (in other words, Huck tells audiences what he thinks they want to hear on government.) But the centerpiece was a long discussion on gay marriage. Huckabee sounded moderate in his immoderation on the issue. Stewart calmly resisted stoutly. I suspect your view of the outcome depends on your view on the issue. Stewart particlarly criticized Huck's notion that homosexuality is a choice. Religion is more of a choice than sexual orientation, Stewart said.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
