|Same Sex Marriage (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
When I think about same-sex marriage today, two things jump out out me:
- The fact that so many conservative Christians oppose it on religious grounds reminds me of all the other times conservative Christians have been on the wrong side of history.
- With history as a guide, I expect that the day will come when Christians in the future claim that Christians never opposed same-sex marriage but actually helped to bring it about.
Those of us alive today will know that this is not true and is little more than shameless revisionist history. We will know that same-sex marriage is yet another example of many conservative Christians being on the wrong side of history, clinging to bigotry and using their "holy" book to justify it.
