Arguments vs Aesthetics

October 17, 2016

Over at First Things, Carl Trueman opines that traditionalists are losing the conflict over marriage and sexuality, not revisionists have a better argument, but because they have a more compelling aesthetic. He doesn’t think this situation is going to turn around any time soon. He writes,

At this point in time, it is very hard to see where traditionalists might seize the aesthetic advantage in the debates over sexuality and identity. It will be very hard to gain a narrative advantage for traditional positions. Not only do we not have significant access to pop-culture media, we must also acknowledge that, for every narrated story of a broken gay marriage or family, there will be just as many, if not more, from traditional marriages and families.
