Same-Sex Marriage: Equal Rights, Religion, and Bigotry
Aaron Brake of pleaseconvinceme.com tackles the oft repeated slogan to the right that arises during the same-sex marriage debate. In response he writes:
Let’s set the record straight:
1. No one is being denied equal rights when it comes to marriage. Same-sex marriage is not about equal rights but rather is about what marriage is and whether or not we can define it as we like.
2. Christianity is a knowledge tradition which makes objective truth claims.
3. Name-calling is not an argument.
Each of these points are discussed in more detail here.
Stand firm in Christ,
