3. In an interview with Oprah, Rob Bell, former megachurch pastor, said that the church is "moments away" from embracing same-sex marraige. Bell, who was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2011, went on to explain his conviction. "I think culture is already there and the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense, when you have in front of you flesh-and-blood people who are your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and co-workers and neighbors and they love each other and just want to go through life with someone."

4.

This is quite a dramatic move in the right direction from the last election period, and will hopefully push republican hopefuls to change their backwards stances. [Washington Post]
