Hip Is In

You may have seen this article already; it speaks of President Obama’s fresh appeal for Americans to embrace homosexuality.  I find it curious that he categorizes the arguments against homosexuality as “worn arguments and old attitudes.” 

It seems to me that Obama exemplifies our desire to be glib, haughty, and, of course, hip.  Americans, apparently, don’t want to be left out when it comes to being cool.  What I find curious, though, is how we moved from being a people who trusted time-proven truth to a people who only long for the hippest fad.  Perhaps, we could rephrase Obama’s categorization and say that the arguments against homosexuality are not “worn and old” but “tried and true.”
