Many of the things I've written over the years have proven to be hot potatoes to people perched on church pews and preachers prompt up in church pulpits, nothing more so, however, than my book, SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE: THE COMPELLING ARGUMENTS AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE. You can read the book here: https://bit.ly/2E2sKpu. Though I was castigated both inside and outside of the church for this book, I've had plenty of opportunities since its publication to say to my critics, "I told you so!" Here's another good example.
In my book, I penned the following prediction: "Once the pebble of same-sex marriage is cast into the pond, the ripples in our society will never stop. Marriage will be perpetually subject to redefinition in order to accommodate all sexual preferences and perversions. Having set a legal precedent, our courts will be obligated by stare decisis to allow two marriages for bisexuals, multiple marriages for polygamists, and even the marrying of consenting minors to adult pedophiles. In the end, all sexual relationships will be deemed marriageable and any dissent will be denounced as discriminatory.”
I went on to add: "Stretching the legal definition of marriage to encompass same-sex marriage on the false premise of anti-discrimination will inevitably lead to redefining marriage to the lowest common denominator. Marriage will be defined down by our courts until it is all-inclusive, nondescript, offensive to no one and agreeable to everyone. In other words, marriage will be reduced to meaninglessness and our society to madness.”
Last month, on June 29, the Mayor of Somerville Massachusetts, Joseph Curtatone, signed a new city ordinance recognizing “polyamorous” domestic partnerships in Somerville. The ordinance was unanimously passed by the city council, which later explained that they could find no "good reason" to limit romantic relationships to just two people.
While I saw this coming like a freight train, the "Paulines" occupying church pews and pulpits remained unalarmed, while trying to appease the "Snidely Whiplashes" of the LGBT community who were tying them to the tracks with malice aforethought. Tragically, the impending perils of the biblically predicted perilous times of the last days appear to remain imperceptible to many a modern-day church member and man of the cloth.
