I Couldn't Have Said it Better MyselfIt's like I wrote this myself:
To those on the political and religious right who are intent on continuing the battle to preserve “traditional marriage” in a nation that is rapidly discarding its traditions, I would ask this question: What poses a greater threat to our remaining moral underpinnings? Is it two homosexuals living together, or is it the number of heterosexuals who are divorcing and the increasing number of children born to unmarried women, now at nearly 40 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?
Most of those who are disturbed about same-sex marriage are not as exercised about preserving heterosexual marriage. That’s because it doesn’t raise money and won’t get them on TV. Some preachers would rather demonize gays than oppose heterosexuals who violate their vows by divorcing, often causing harm to their children. That’s because so many in their congregations have been divorced and preaching against divorce might cause some to leave and take their contributions with them.
Except I didn't. A politically conservative Christian writer that is adamantly against gay marriage did.
I've been pounding out this same message for years, and nearly every time I do, I get accused of trying to change the subject. The problem is, I'm not trying to change the subject. I'm trying to point out the hypocrisy of all of this.When anti-gay folks tell me they just don't agree with my lifestyle because they want to do God's will or follow the Bible, they're not being genuine. Don't get me wrong...some of them may not even realize that they are giving a pass on all that God and Bible stuff to themselves and about 50% of the once-married population, but it's about time people actually get this stuff pointed out to them. I'm glad to see someone on their side do it, even if the rest of the article wasn't quite so agreeable.
