Re: “Wedding signals a sea change” (TNT, 8-14).

How did we get to the place where a homosexual wedding is front-page news?

Could anyone have ever predicted that the time would come when we would be debating what is and is not a marriage? Debating if the fundamental husband and wife part of a marriage is constitutional? Debating if the fundamental father and mother part of the family is constitutional?

Is marriage and the family as we have known it passing away right before our eyes? For some time now homosexual radicals have demanded that their behavior receive more and more recognitions, considerations and protections. The response from many has been, so what?

Worse, many just yawned when homosexual radicals invented a nonsensical, nonexistent condition called homophobia to take the focus off of what they do and place a stigma on anyone who opposes moral relativism to rule the day.

Now because of our silence we are in a battle for the very soul of this nation.

Sadly the most popular thing to say today is, “Jesus never addressed the issues of homosexuality or marriage so why should I deny someone’s love?”

But the fact is, Jesus does address and is crystal clear on both issues. The fact that Jesus was committed to heterosexual marriage and opposed to any sexual immorality, including homosexuality, could not be more evident.

Jesus loves all and promises forgivenesss and deliverance to any who come to him, heterosexual or homosexual.
