Former senator speaks against gay marriage ban

From the Lawrence Journal World:

"Ten years from now, in 2015, we will be amazed that we were ever sitting in this room and having this discussion," said David Adkins, a former Republican state legislator from Leawood.

Adkins spoke to about 50 people who attended a forum about the gay marriage issue at Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt. The forum was organized by the church's Open and Affirming Committee. Last year the congregation voted to adopt a statement welcoming gays and lesbians into the full "life and leadership of the church."

Won't that be sad that in 10 years we may not care about the protection of marriage that has been common-sense for thousands of years? And isn't it sad that a Christian church doesn't heed Biblical doctrine about homosexuality and worships at the alter of political correctness? Homosexuals are surely welcome in my church too, and they will be greeted by love...but they may not enjoy the message. The message they would hear is the same that Paul gave in 1 Corinthians 6:9:

"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolators nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

Let's hope it's not true that in a decade we'll all be ready to equate a "marriage" based on a lifestyle that the Bible clearly defines as sinful (among the other lifestyles Paul mentions above) with the form of marriage that God put together since the creation of man and woman.
