Good grief. Since when did this become a “social issue” in their tiny minds? It’s a moral issue, and he has every right and in fact the duty to say what he wants about it.
Also, why has it suddenly become completely verboten to utter even the mildest disagreement on this subject? I’m stunned at how fast the left and the press are moving to enforce their latest idiocy (”gay marriage”), but I’m also stunned by the overt harshness and barely concealed threat behind their words.
You're right about this livius - it's not a social issue - it's a moral issue.
“but Im also stunned by the overt harshness and barely concealed threat behind their words.”
It will just keep getting worse. When someone is given over to depravity (like homosexuality) they intrinsically know that they are wrong, so they scream even louder they are “right” trying to convince themselves. Should Billy start speaking out against extra-marital sex as the immorality it is, he would catch even more flak. Which, by the way, is one of the underlying reasons that many are taking a ho-hum attitude towards homosexuality. So many today are committing hetereosexual immorality they can’t get that upset with homosexual immorality.
We strive to preserve marraige, but even in the hetereosexual community it is not honored. Either they live together unmarried or they marry and unmarry at the drop of a hat. Currently, there are more heterosexaul couples unmarried in America than those that are married. Amoung heterosexuals, marriage is becoming a minority.
Oh, the “fundamentalist” Mormons in Utah are now sueing for the right to have their marriages legal. I knew this would follow the legalization of homosexual unions. It will keep going down hill until the God Lord has mercy on us and causes us to wake up and repent (change our ways).
I will only speak for myself, but I recognize how badly stained I am by the current sexual standards of this country. Yes, I am married and “faithful” to my wife, but is my heart truly faithful? Have I not myself been corrupted with bad attitudes and lax thinking and carelessness as to what I expose my eyes and mind to. Yes, I must confess I have. So, I include myself in the category of those requiring a “wake up” call. May God so grant that call.
