Michael Reagan, the eldest son of President Ronald Reagan, takes on marriage equality in a controversial new editorial for Ohio’s Ironton Tribune, where he challenges American churches to condemn same-sex marriage, much in the same manner as polygamy, bestiality, and murder.
Reagan, a political consultant and author of The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness, questions “Where’s the moral outrage?” on the issue of legalizing same-sex marriage.
This fight over Proposition 8 isn’t just about saying it should be legal in the eyes of government for two people of the same sex to get married in California.
