Unless you're a political wonk, you've probably seen John Danforth--a former Republican Senator from Missouri--once, when he was the minister at Ronald Reagan's funeral in 2004. So I'll fill you in: he's widely considered one of the voices of reason within his party. And this is what he had to say the other night:
Referring to the marriage amendment, he added that perhaps at some point in history there was a constitutional amendment proposed that was "sillier than this one, but I don't know of one."This makes me look forward to his upcoming book, Faith and Politics: How the 'Moral Values' Debate Divides America and How to Move Forward Together. Maybe he has something to say that will resonate with his party?
