Recently, the Colorado House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 11 by a vote of 39-26, which will give homosexual couples the same legal protections as heterosexual couples. Rep. Ferrandino (D-Denver) said “We need laws in our society that respect everyone equally.”
Rep. Moreno (D-Commerce City) also added, “By passing this bill today, we give young people, we give LGBT people, that ultimate acceptance, that you are equal in the eyes of the government.” Rep. Beth McCann (D-Denver) responded, “We have really moved toward recognizing that people should be allowed to live how they want to live.”
The so-called ‘same-sex marriage’ movement is deemed the civil rights issue of our time. Anyone who speaks out against this is branded as hateful and bigoted by denying them their ‘rights’ of equality in the eyes of the government.
How should Christians who hold to the biblical view of procreative, male/female exclusive marriage respond?
