Haven’t we seen this before? We sound the alarm about a dangerous cultural trend, warning about what is coming around the corner.
In response, our critics tell us that we’re crazy, that no such thing will ever happen, that we’re just fearmongers and fanatics. Then, little by little, the very thing we warned about becomes reality. In response, our critics say, “So what’s the big deal? Stop being such babies. This is the real world. Get over it.”
Then the cycle repeats itself again.
More than 15 years ago, when I first started warning that those who came out of the closet wanted to put us in the closet, I was greeted with derision and scorn.
“You’re crazy! No one wants to put you in the closet.”
A few years later, the response changed to, “Bigots like you belong in the closet.”
Today, conservative Christians books have been banned by Amazon, and our platforms have been removed by social media. What we warned would happen to us has come to pass.
And what is the response?
“You are no better than the KKK or the Nazis or ISIS. You got what you deserved.”
Well, we told you this was coming.
As for redefining marriage, what was one of our biggest objections?
We stated that marriage was the unique union of one man and one woman, and once you changed that definition to the union of any two people, the number two became meaningless.
As I stated in my 2011 debate with Prof. Eric Smaw, “if marriage is simply the union of two people—rather than the union of a man and a woman—why should we limit it to just ‘two’? (Please don’t say, ‘Well, anything more than two is icky,’ since many people feel that same-sex relationships are ‘icky.’ Surely there needs to be more substance to your response than, ‘That’s icky!’) Please tell me why marriage should be the union of just two people? What’s so magical about the number two if it is not the union of a male and female?”
Why not three men or three women? If marriage doesn’t require a man and a woman, what’s so important about the number two? Why not three (or more)?
Prof. Smaw didn’t even attempt to answer that question, nor did any proponent of same-sex “marriage” with whom I interacted ever provide a viable response.
Instead, the very idea of more than two marital partners was dismissed as absurd. “No one is talking about that,” I was assured. “We just want the same rights that you have. We just want our relationships to be recognized.”
