    LOL! I’m guessing this came to me, via Jenny, via you!

    Yes! Although I am actually only wealthy, not handsome.

    Here is my post on it:

    That post has summaries of the opening speeches, and a link to his new book, which is on Amazon.

    That’s one of the top Protestant theologians, author of our most popular systematic theology textbook. He is a Calvinist, though. I’m not. I’m a Molinist when it comes to soteriology and divine providence.

    The short answer to the original question, is, of course, “NO!!!!”

    Gee, I never thought that someone who was anti-gay would actually be against same-sex marriage.

    His verbal bashing of LGBT people does not make him right. It just makes him popular with the fringe.

    @Bob Barnes Since when is the truth “verbal bashing”?

    And since when is the vast majority “the fringe”?

    Same-sex marriage should be legal because it strengthens families and creates a more secure environment for kids (by virtue of strengthening their parents’ relationship). Plus our nation’s constitution says everyone should have equal rights.

    Oh, and the government shouldn’t impose a religious viewpoint on society, especially when doing so impairs the religious freedoms of other religions.

    There has to be, and will be, a foundation – and not everyone will agree on it.

    @Sean SSM does nothing to strengthen families and everything to destroy them. There is no equal right to marriage – it is only a right for those who qualify for marriage, which means you must have opposite-sex couples. It is not a “religious” view, rather it is a societal view of thousands of years regardless of religion.
