This wlil show my age ... but Michael Kinsley was (paired with Robert Novak) the best host ever on Crossfire. Not a high bar, true; but they were quite good. He tends to be a contrarian liberal: the contrarian (increasingly so) position in this New Republic piece is "[B]eing against marriage equality doesn't make you a monster." He touches a bit on the religious-liberty situations like the florist. We've pretty well flogged these issues to death here, including how one can support same-sex marriage and strong religious liberty. But c'mon ... this is Kinsley saying such things (dang, I showed my age again).
I'll open comments with trepidation, but since we have flogged this in other posts, I'll close the comments if they start veering to something beyond Kinsley's particular points.
