Logic: a proper or reasonable way of thinking about or understanding something --- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
It has become an almost daily occurrence: I log on to my computer, only to come across a headlline that leaves me bewildered and a little sad. The latest entry? "How Christianity Gave Us Gay Marriage".
Now if the connection hasn't lept to your mind yet, here is how the thinking goes: Christianity is based on an ethic of fairness, and since it would be unfair if gays couldn't marry, a real Christian will embrace gay marriage.
Are we really so intellectually bankrupt? Does a Christian worldview, concerned as it is with matters of justice, lead us to "marriage equality"?
By no means. The question is not are gays being treated unfairly (they are not; gays can already marry in all 50 states). The question is, rather, is the union of 2 (or more) homosexuals a "marriage"?
If the Bible is our guide, it's not even a close call. Marriage is the union of a man and a woman. It was, and still is, God's idea, and we tinker with it at our peril.
