Our Pilgrim forefathers found significant religious oppression in the U.K. and Leiden (The Netherlands) and set-sail for freedom and protection of their children in the New World. When global same-sex "marriage" is complete, how will you (and your children) seek refuge from this coming oppression?
If we don't jointly act now we seal our own destiny.

Perhaps the biblical precedents are the relatively tiny twin towns of Sodom and Gomorrah.
What happens when Sodom and Gomorrah's homosexuality goes not just national but global (which it has), and further, the right to "same-sex" marriage is recognized in every nation and even sanctioned by the UN? This would make any Bible precedents pale in comparison.
Is it wise for a Christian to ignore this carnage and hope it doesn't impact his denomination (it's destroyed several already), his congregation and his family?
It's excellent that Dr. Mohler is standing up for biblical marriage.
Hopefully Dr. Mohler (et al) and Abp Dolan (& USCCB) are working together to protect generations from falling victim to unbiblical Federal (and state) laws sanctioning aberrant marriage configurations.
Liberals of all stripes have been working together for decades to legalize same-sex "marriage" in NY. They won't stop there but will work until it is at least across the U.S. and even worldwide. If this contagion is not eradicated, it would cause 'Conflict Between Church and State of Enormous Proportions.â€™
Why couldn't Christians on both sides of the aisle do likewise to protect the biblical family?
