Friends and fellow followers of Christ, I feel I must weigh in on the SCOTUS decision regarding gay marriage.
Politically they erred because this truly should have been left to the states. A conservative state should be free to legislate what their citizens decide. The same for a liberal state. The usurping of state’s rights has been the great pitfall of the last century.
One more on the legal side. This application of 50 state precedent is fantastic for concealed carry reciprocity! I can’t wait to hear the hypocrisy when freedom-loving Americans start arguing for their civil right to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights outside the home!
For me, this is not a moral issue. If all you care about is holding up the Bible’s morality applied to unbelievers, you’re a legalistic, moralist, and a Pharisee. That’s not the gospel.
Now my Christian friends may take issue with that. I say, quit applying the law of God to an unsaved nation! Why get your underwear in a bunch over God’s standards applied to people who reject God’s law. They don’t need heterosexual marriage. They need Jesus! They need the gospel preached into their lives. How can we expect righteous behavior from an unsaved people?
