I sometimes hear the argument that future Christians will be ashamed that we didn’t accept same-sex “marriage” today, just as Christians today are ashamed that some slaveholders used the Bible to support slavery.

Well, that’s half right. I don’t want tomorrow’s church to be ashamed of how I acted today. We live in a culture where marriage has been deeply damaged, where fewer and fewer children have the privilege and benefit of growing up with their real, biological parents. Same-sex “marriage,” like any counterfeit, weakens the family-centered view of marriage even further, and substitutes in its place a view that ignores the rights of children in favor of a couple’s desires.

It’s wrong to let the weak and defenseless be pushed aside so other people can get what they want. And there’s no one weaker today than tomorrow’s children. I don’t want the church tomorrow to be ashamed that I let their children down today, by failing to support genuine marriage.

I’ll link to articles on this at I’m John Stonestreet.
