Friday evening, the New York legislature passed legislation permitting same-sex marriage. As the sixth state (plus D.C.) to actually allow it, the occasion was an historic one inasmuch as it came under Republican control and required votes from that party.
My audience is compromised of people who have deeply held convictions about this issue on both sides. And, many probably think they know my view. For personal and professional reasons, I am largely private about it.
Suffice it to say, I am for personal responsibility before God.
I am for self-determination in life and love.
And, I am for liberty in a pluralistic democracy.
Where these are found, I’m for it.
I am against bad and abusive relation.
I am against neglectful parents.
I am against failing our commitments.
Where these are found, I’m discouraged.
Many people believe such legal expansion threatens traditional and heterosexual marriage. But, they are confused. Our modern marriage is already sick and soulless.
Let us all be for vibrant, committed, and God-fearing marriage.
