Advocates of same-sex marriage often liken their endeavor to redefine marriage to the civil rights struggle of the past. Voddie Baucham, pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, TX, provides a concise and logical response to this, demonstrating the “flimsy” nature of the argument. He writes:
It’s hard to deny that homosexual marriage appears to be a foregone conclusion in America. This is a frightening prospect not only for those of us who understand marriage to be a testimony of the relationship between Christ and his bride, the church, but also for all who value the family and its contribution to the well-being of society and human thriving. And while it’s difficult to watch a coordinated, well-funded, well-connected propaganda strategy undermine thousands of years of human history, it’s especially disconcerting to witness the use of the civil rights struggle as the vehicle for the strategy.
