In our ongoing cultural conversation about homosexuality and same-sex marriage, we will continue to have friends and family members who will be asking us questions like these. Unfortunately, many Christians today lack the ability to clearly articulate their views on marriage. We often find it difficult to respond to questions or arguments made by those who disagree with us. If we want why people oppose gay marriage defend the centuries-old understanding of marriage, we should start by looking carefully at what God has to say about it. That means that no matter what legislators or justices say, the definition of marriage is not ours to tamper with. First, we in the Christian community need to apologize for the way we have interacted with the LGBT community. We can stand for the truth and be loving at why people oppose gay marriage same time.
