Saturday Good Reads

Frederica Mathewes-Greene is a Christian who doesn’t oppose gay marriage. This week on Facebook, she posted a link and undertook a discussion about the law in Indiana that has caused so much outrage. The link she shared is noted below. Her Facebook discussion is worth reading as well. With that link below is another one, a discussion of the legislation by a law professor who actually read it (admittedly, not a typical thing to do in this day and age of “we have to pass it to see what’s in it”). And there is a third link - Rod Dreher's conversation with a law professor at an elite university; the professor has to remain anonymous because he is a Christian.
