IF MARRIAGE IS ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING, THEN IT IS, EFFECTIVELY, NOTHING

This past Monday, the Supreme Court rejected appeals from five states (Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin) seeking to prohibit same-sex marriages. This effectively codified gay and lesbian unions by deferring to the rulings of lower courts, which had already abrogated the bans in those states. Because of this decision, the count of states that affirm “gay marriage” will quickly increase […]

I’VE CHANGED MY MIND, SODOM IS ABOUT INHOSPITALITY

Matthew Vines, the self proposed “gay Christian,” in his book, God and the Gay Christian, argues that gay people in committed relationships is not ungodly or unbiblical. This is to say that Vines believes that it’s okay–biblically warranted even–to be homosexual, so long as you are in a monogamous relationship. His book argues this point by […]

THREE QUESTIONS I’M ASKING MYSELF AFTER WORLD VISION’S REVERSED DECISION

It’s been a busy week for World Vision. On Monday, March 24, they announced a new policy that would allow “gay Christians” in legal “same-sex marriages” to be employed with their organization. And on Wednesday, March 26, they announced that the policy had been reversed. World Vision’s policy matters to a lot of people. I […]

A SOUTHERN BAPTIST PASTOR INTERVIEWS A HOMOSEXUAL

It was in sixth grade that I met Matt. He had moved to my hometown of Mabank, Texas from Colorado Springs. We met in band and became friends. We weren’t the best of friends, but we were more than acquaintances. Although we now live on opposite sides of the nation, through the magic of social […]

MACKLEMORE AND HOMOSEXUALITY

Last night on the Grammys, Macklemore sang his culturally beloved song, “Same Love.” This song is essentially written as a mantra against those who oppose homosexuality, specifically as it relates to “same-sex marriage.” It’s also become somewhat of a mascot song for those that support homosexuality. Macklemore, according to his own lyrics, isn’t gay, but he […]

HATING PEOPLE WHO HATE PEOPLE, WHEN THEY REALLY DON’T HATE PEOPLE AT ALL

The other day a song came on the radio that I later discovered is named, “Same Love.” I was mesmerized by the opening line because the musician, Macklemore, raps, “When I was in the third grade I thought I was gay, ’cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.“ I intentionally […]

THE TRUTH TEST: WHY TRUTH SHOULD DICTATE BELIEFS AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND

On March 30 an article appeared in the Odessa American entitled, “The Meaning of Equality,” in which I argued for the “traditional” definition of marriage. To this a reader responded by submitting a letter to the editor, which appeared in the April 14 edition of the Odessa American with what I consider largely an ad […]

THE MEANING OF EQUALITY

A homosexual should have the right to get married . . . (Keep reading) . . . so long as he understands that marriage is between one man and one woman and that to enjoy that right he must submit himself to that traditional understanding of the institution. Therefore, it’s not even necessarily that a […]
