Over the last few of weeks the case for legalizing same-sex marriage has been in the national forefront. The Millennial generation is turning Facebook red, and according to Pew Research they now support gay marriage by 70%, a 19% increase from 2003 and the largest increase for any generation.
When then-President Clinton passed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1993, the Senate just as overwhelmingly voted to define marriage as a “union of one man and one woman.” Clearly, we are seeing a paradigm shift in moral values.
Politicians, our friends, and media-hungry celebrities are using the feel-good word “compassion” as an excuse to ignore Paul’s warning to the Corinthians (1 Cor 6:9). Having moral courage appears to be less popular if it offends the rights of a business or individual to support a minority behavior (unless, of course, children, guns, or priests are involved – then the moral outrage comes from all sides!).

The Stewardship Foundation’s stand is always to side with the Law of God over the ever-changing whims of man. We stress that we must always act with charity and respect for all even when we disagree. We strive to support those who stand for what they know is right even when the truth is inconvenient. So you know where we stand. The question is where do you stand? And, are you willing to live what you believe?
