Disclaimer! I don’t agree with everything he says here, but I thought it provided interesting food for thought.
“Only those who try to use the force of law to promote homosexual behavior and homosexual marriage to our children, and who would forbid us to publicly teach and express our belief that marriage is only meaningful between heterosexual couples, move into the category of enemies of freedom. And that will be because of their attempt to suppress religious freedom, freedom of speech and press, and the right of parents to control their children’s moral education.
“Supporting Proposition 8 in California is a political action, which we undertake as citizens.
“Preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ — including our beliefs about marriage and the proper conditions for acts of procreation — is quite separate.
“We do not think that any belief system, whether it calls itself a religion or not, should be imposed on other people by law — we won’t impose ours on them, and we won’t let them impose theirs on us or our families.
“Instead, we believe that as long as we are citizens of a free country, changes in the laws and institutions of our society should be made only by common consent, after a free and candid discussion.”
