The proponents of the marriage amendment have suffered a setback. I don't know what the pastor who released the tape was thinking. We assume he thought that once Sen. Dean Johnson's comments were exposed, the public would be repulsed by the senator's duplicity. Where has he been? Has he been out of the university so long that he thinks truth matters?
For years now the professors of the left have been indoctrinating us with the philosophy that says truth is whatever you want it to be. Johnson is a model student. It matters not whether his conversations with the Supreme Court justices actually took place or not. He was pushing for what he believed in so let's admire him for that. If Johnson says the conversations took place, they did. It is his truth. And the justices certainly have no reason to be offended. As left-leaning lawyers, they are first-string defenders of relativism. If they wish the conversations not to have taken place, they didn't. We can have it both ways. We're open-minded.
As for the marriage amendment, the vote is very much in jeopardy. In cases like this, the party of Bill and Hillary Clinton will usually circle the wagons. Johnson's poll ratings will go up as his credibility joins the ranks of Ted Kennedy and O.J. Simpson. And the chances of a vote on the marriage amendment will go down. There are simply not enough old-schoolers left in St. Paul to overcome the surge of support Senator Johnson will receive.
Thanks, pastor from Harvest Church. You meant well.
