A little background on the characters in this story: Shaiman directed "Hairspray" and is a Tony award-winner. This is not small time.
Prager is a conservative Jewish radio host (around here he's on 870 from 9 a.m.-noon) whose show I highly recommend. What stands out about Prager is how well-rounded his thoughtfulness is. He teaches college Torah classes (his article mentions that he is teaching Leviticus right now) and does not limit his radio show to just politics. As a Jew, he loves, appreciates, and genuinely tries to understand where Christians are coming from- you'll get a sense of that in this article.
Here is the article's conclusion:
But none of that matters. In an age when most college graduates know little or nothing about the Bible -- which, until the baby boomer generation, was the most widely read, most widely studied, and most widely revered book in America -- they will learn all they think they need to know about the Bible and homosexuality from a three-minute musical on the Internet.
Hatred based on ignorance is known as bigotry. Making the bigotry of much of the anti-Proposition 8 activism apparent is Marc Shaiman’s significant, if inadvertent, contribution.
Why can’t Shaiman and his fellow activists acknowledge that there are good people on both sides of this issue? Those of us who supported Proposition 8 readily acknowledge that many good people differ with us. Neither position is inherently hateful, but this little musical is.
