Gay Marriage To Be Made Law, Christians Panic
Last year, some Christians I know became infuriated at my refusal to support a marriage amendment that made their definition of marriage “the law.” I had a few reasons, the main one being that government has no business in defining marriage. The other reason was that, if we kept pushing such laws, then a homosexual definition of marriage will be pushed to be “the law” and likely succeed.
The Christian Coalition is now panicking; Vermont and New Hampshire are entertaining legislation to make a redefinition of marriage “the law.” The overturning of the Defensive Marriage Act is gaining support. The actions of the aggressors are having unintended consequences. When do I get to say “I told you so?”
When did Jesus support aggression to force His views on the the pharisees and others who did not agree with Him, and even wanted to kill Him? And here we are, claiming to follow Christ, forcing, by law, our definition of marriage. It is sick and wrong. We are hypocrites for doing so. The Christian’s job is to spread the Gospel and teach others the truth, not put a gun to our neighbors head and force them to abide by our beliefs, which may not even be biblical!
Now that I live in NH, I will oppose the redefinition of marriage just like I did the marriage bans. I am doing it because God is the authority on marriage, and not government, not because I have some sick goal of forcing people to believe my ideas of marriage.
