Did The People Or Elites Decide In Favor Of Gay Marriage?
In reference to the Supreme Court's refusal to hear cases regarding prohibitions against gay marriage in a number of states, the 10/6/2014 episode of Viewpoint with Chuck Crimier was titled “America Officially Embraces What God Hates”.
But is that entirely accurate?
For did not voters in these states initially enact prohibitions against this practice?
Therefore, on what grounds is the average American responsible when leaders at the highest levels of government overturn the electorally expressed will of the people?
There is only so much that the average person can do.
Chuck Crismier is both an attorney and a theologian.
However, others might have different areas in which they are expected to minister.
For example, is it not perhaps even more important for parents to model loving marriages and family behavior in the lives of their children rather than to neglect these relationships through an all-encompassing activism?
Getting these priorities out of order will do more to spread this form of social decay faster than an out of control judiciary ever could.
