Seems like this person gets it. It does matter - culture and religion are inextricably linked. As Chuck Colson always says, "The 'cult' produces the culture."
The article goes on to quote from the Telegraph in London and states:
"Per a piece in the UK Telegraph, the British High Court has ruled that freedom of sexual orientation "should take precedence" over freedom of religion...."
It tells the story of a British couple, Christians, who kept foster children but "are to be denied the opportunity to do so any longer because they are unwilling to promote a homosexual lifestyle to a child."
It goes on to state: "Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Johns has anything against gay people but they are not in favour of sex before marriage, whatever an individual's orientation"
The final sentence of the article (In The American Thinker,not the Telegraph): "The real crime is not the insanity of a few leftist ideologues. It is the complicity of the sane vast majority."
Is the American church complicit? -- Read the article - it is well written. ________________________ 3/02/11 - New addition to post:
There is a firestorm of blogging going on in the UK about this ruling - look at this comment from another blog on The Telegraph's website: Title: Christianity isn’t dying, it’s being eradicated - Some quotes: "'We’ve outgrown Christianity', the judges professed....Its efforts to push the majority faith underground are evident everywhere, from our bus stops to our workplaces...And now devout Christians are to be prevented from becoming foster parents."
