One reason homosexuals want marriage is for acceptance and respectability. Another reason they want marriage is to get access to children. Please consider this quote from the former president of the LA chapter of the National Organisation for Women, Tammy Bruce. She is not a Christian, and is not a conservative. She is a pro-abortion feminist and a lesbian. But she is alarmed by the homosexual agenda. This is what she says:
“Today’s gay activists have carried the campaign a step further, invading children’s lives by wrapping themselves in the banner of tolerance. It is literally the equivalent of the wolf coming to your door dressed as your grandmother.
“The radicals in control of the gay establishment want children in their world of moral decay, lack of self-restraint, and moral relativism. Why? How better to truly belong to the majority (when you’re really on the fringe) than by taking possession of the next generation? By targeting children, you can start indoctrinating the next generation with the false construct that gay people deserve special treatment and special laws. How else can the gay establishment actually get society to believe, borrowing from George Orwell, that gay people are indeed more equal than others? Of course, the only way to get that idea accepted is to condition people into accepting nihilism that forbids morality and judgement.”

If this does not persuade us to act, I do not know what will. It seems that God has to raise up non-Christians as prophetic voices, given how asleep and apathetic so much of the church is.
“If the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?” (I Cor. 14:8)
