The Gay Question
Today I asked my senior Government class the Gay Question: Should gay marriage be legal or illegal? I told them I wanted them to start thinking about it. Maybe we'll have a classroom debate in the near future. I ask them because I think it's a great question for today; especially in a Christian school setting. Scripturally we are on a firm foundation when it comes to the question. But legally? I'm not so sure. How do we defend a ban on gay marriage without pulling Scripture into the debate? Is it legal to use Scripture to defend a legal ban on gay marriage? Does using Scripture violate another person's freedom of religion? I don't know the answer. That's the other reason I ask the question. Maybe one of these knuckleheads will have an insight I haven't had yet. There are some bright minds in this class and I keep hoping someone somewhere will show me a satisfactory answer to this question.
