I have yet to hear an argument against gay marriage that doesn’t invoke something written on bronze-age parchment. Denying people who love and are committed to each other the right to marry is bad enough. But it gets worse, by sinking its resources into this battle the church is losing the younger generation who realizes they are on the wrong side of history. But it’s even worse than that because the next battle, euthanasia, the church has a compelling case against. But it’s wasting its credibility on gay marriage so when the euthanasia debate does come to the forefront people will not be willing to hear the church out.
