Social Issues


Wedding Rings with Scripture
So why, as Christians, are we so agitated about same sex marriage, LGBTQ and the whole gender thing? We established yesterday that humanity is already a little messed up in the sexuality department - in fact, since the Garden of Eden, we've been quite capable of getting ourselves in trouble without the help of LGBTQ advocates.
