It’s a question worth asking someone from the other side of the marriage debate. A fair question, actually.
And it goes something like this – “If you truly believe so-called same-sex marriage is a “right”, then why aren’t you lobbying for it in all facets of society”?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked that question on social media, only to be met with silence or scorn. I mean… really. It is incredible how vocal SSM proponents can get about re-defining marriage and then, at times, completely back away from the whole church idea. And I’ve heard it all. ”You Catholics can have your (expletive deleted) church wedding!” ”I wouldn’t step foot in your (expletive deleted) church if you paid for our reception!” And so on, and so forth.
These people simply can’t handle the gravity of the question, because it opens up a whole, whoppin’ can of “religious liberty” speak. And they don’t want to tread there.
Not yet, anyway.
It is my opinion that infiltrating the church has always been a part of the agenda. Why? Well, even while it is completely fallacious to compare today’s gay marriage “rights” to yesteryear’s black civil rights, let’s understand this one thing when analyzing the whole “we don’t need your churches” rebuttal – no black person lobbying for equal rights was saying, “hey, it’s okay if I have to sit in the back of the bus in North Carolina, just as long as I don’t have to in California.”
When it comes to “rights”, it’s an all or nothing situation. That’s why the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to take up the challenge of deciding the constitutionality of marriage is so massive. The Union cannot go on accepting gay marriage in some states and completely banning it in others. If gay marriage proponents think it can, they are either being disingenuous, or are tethered to their living room banister, having never ventured out of state.
Something’s gotta give.
Oh. And as for nobody in the movement is trying to change religious institutions (I got that on Twitter last week), you might want to read how British PM David Cameron views gays being excluded from religious ceremonies.
For those who hold fast to one man/one woman, do not fear. But be aware… be bold… and be immersed in a healthy prayer life.
Because it looks like gay “marriage” is getting ready to darken church doors.
