Left and Right come together on eve of holiday
Whoda thunk it? On this, the day before Christmas, two progressive ideas have found an embrace in the arms of leaders popular with both the left and the right. Today, Vice President Joe Biden remarked that gay marriage would eventually find favor with most Americans. Perhaps more surprisingly, on December 16, televangelist Pat Robertson, who has taken a more conservative approach on social issues, slammed the American tendency to criminalize marijuana. No word yet on what Biden thinks of decriminalizing pot, but it's safe to conclude that Robertson isn't ready to endorse gay marriage. Surprisingly, the Bible itself–- as Newsweek reported last year–- actually seems open to the concept.
