Traditional marriage still popular

February 26, 2015

Just listening/reading to the secular media, you can easily get the impression that everyone is now supportive of same-sex marriage.

The gist of those secular messages are: Accept the fact that same-sex marriage is not going away. Christians better get on board.

And, that is true. It won’t. Same sex-marriage is here to stay, but those of us who  believe in the biblical definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman don’t have to “get on board.”

Baptist Press reported Feb. 25 that a recent survey commissioned by the Family Research Council, in partnership with National Religious Broadcasters, found that 81 percent of Americans agree that government should “leave people free to follow their beliefs about marriage as they live out their daily lives at work and in the way they run their businesses.”

What a novel concept (sarcasm dripping).

A small minority is trying to impose their will and beliefs on a vast majority of people (both Christians and non-Christians) who disagree. That is wrong. If those people are comfortable with those beliefs, that is entirely up to them. They ultimately, as will those who believe in traditional marriage, will answer to God.

In the meantime, Christians must continue to stand up for our religious freedom.
