The Rise of Same Sex Marriage Dissidents. A very powerful article on the totalitarian-like nature of our culture’s sexual ideology. “Did we mindlessly put up red equal signs when we hadn’t even thought about what marriage is?

What I want most is that “Christ will be honored in [my] body, whether in life or in death” (Phil.1:20). Those gathered that day have no need for a sanitized, idealized rendition of who I was or what I accomplished. On that day, in fact on every day until that day, “he must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).”
