Joseph Bottum has reversed course on his opposition to gay marriage. Bottum, the former editor in chief of religious journal First Things, made his about face in a lengthy essay titled The Things We Share: A Catholic's Case for Same-Sex Marriage published Friday on the website of Commonweal magazine. In an interview with The New York Times, Bottum added that he had also given up on politics as a vehicle for social change. “I'll vote Republican, because I'm a Republican. But I don't believe a change in culture can come from politics. It can only come from re-enchantment with the world,” he said.
