Gay Marriage and the Church

I support gay marriage. I do not support the left’s ideology of forcing churches to perform these marriages. Healthy societies are promoted by long term monogamous relationships and rearing children in stable homes. I don’t believe you can change a gay person into being attracted to or intimate with a person of the opposite sexContinue reading “Gay Marriage and the Church”
