Jars of Clay singer gay marriage tweets

Dan Haseltine, lead singer of the Christian rock band Jars of Clay, is perhaps best known for the 1990s hit, “Flood,” and this week his twitter feed has been flooded in response to his pro gay marriage tweets.

He tweeted:

“Not meaning to stir things up BUT… Is there a non-speculative or non “slippery slope” reason why gays shouldn’t marry? I don’t hear one.

“I’m trying to make sense of the conservative argument. But It doesn’t hold up to basic scrutiny. Feels akin to women’s suffrage.”

“I just don’t see a negative effect to allowing gay marriage. No societal breakdown, no war on traditional marriage. ?? Anyone?”

He is @scribblepotemus on twitter if you’d like to see his feed and the reaction from many people based on his pro gay marriage stance.

More tweets:

“Also sad that a guy can’t ask tough questions w/o being pounced on. What year is this? :)”

“No empathy in so many of the comments I’ve received. What if it was your son? Your daughter? Would that change the tone of the convo?”

“So many gay couples display more loving characteristics and healthy relationship practices than most traditional married couples….”
