What can be said about what happened in Orlando? Not much, but there’s a lot to do.
It’s been a few weeks, and Phil feels bad about that. Sorry, guys. Oh well…
Moving on, today, Phil addresses the Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed into Indiana law by the Head Hoosier himself, Governor Mike Pence. The act purports to preserve/restore individual religious freedom by allowing them to refuse to provide services, etc. to others whom they don’t agree with on moral/religious grounds (i.e. a baker shouldn’t have to back a cake for a gay wedding).
Let’s see what Phil has to say about it. If you don’t agree with him, let him know, @phillip320!
The Church seems to be really freaked out about gay marriage, but Phil wants to ask a question, “Is gay marriage any more sinful than a straight marriage that doesn’t glorify God?”
Here’s more from Phil:
“Marriage is used by God as a living illustration of our relationship with Him, so in that sense, gay marriage is offensive since God describes Himself as the husband and the Church as His wife. That being said, a ‘God-less’ straight marriage can’t be that much less holy, right? How can a non-Christian, straight marriage be any more holy went it, too, profanes God’s use of marriage when both parties are fulfilling their role by God’s grace and for His glory?”
Those are Phil’s thoughts. What are yours? Feel free to let him know on Twitter.
