There's been a brouhaha on the Internet about the decision by the Associated Press to recognize same-sex couples and in news stories refer to a gay man's spouse as "husband" and a lesbian's spouse "wife."
Christian fundamentalist Marvin Olasky wrote that this action by the world's leading wire service was not being neutral but was "endorsing same-sex 'marriage.'"
"The Bible has a different understanding," Olasky wrote. "God created … human beings male and female that's a biblically objective fact. He created Adam and Eve and made their union 'marriage' that's biblically objective fact." Maybe. Maybe not. That's a matter of personal belief, not a public rule.
