The New York Times published an interesting article under the above title on February 24th citing how the political climate is shifting on gay marriage among Conservatives. I continue to be amazed at how manifestly views are evolving on this issue even among the most conservative Christians. The Church is learning that “people with a high regard for Scripture and who are prayerfully committed to ordering their lives in accordance with it are honestly divided over this issue,” as one of my textbooks from Westminster Theological Seminary put it [Reading in Communion: Scripture and Ethics in Christian Life by Stephen E. Fowl and L. Gregory Jones]. At some point in the not too distant future, or within most of our own lifetimes, gay marriage will no longer be an issue, and those who stood against it will look as outdated as George Wallace standing on the school steps of the University of Alabama preventing James Hood from entering because he was black. This piece is just one of many recent indications that we are undoubtedly and inescapably heading in this direction.
