Gay Marriage? N T Wright Takes Us To School

When Tom Wright is asked about the challenges that the Church faces in light of legalized gay marriage his response is brilliant.  This is 5 minutes of your life that will NOT be wasted.

Notice his main couple points:

1)  You can’t just go around changing the meaning of words and things.  Just because some say something is so, don’t make it so.

2)  Christian and Biblical opposition to same-sex practice and marriage is not – and has never been – about 5 or 6 pesky verses.  It is coming out of the Grand Narrative, so to speak.  That means you can’t shrug this contemporary issue off and expect to keep the Christian faith coherently together.

 

Ol’ Brother Tom isn’t right (*ha!  a pun!) about everything I don’t think.  He’s admirably right about tons of stuff, though.  And he is super-duper right about this.
