Secular ethics have displaced Judeo-Christian ethics as the dominant cultural view in America. We need to face this reality. It is not a pretty picture.
This first video clip (2:52) is taken from the Q&A section of a lecture by attorney Roberta Kaplan who argued the 2013 Windsor case in the Supreme Court, which overturned the Defense of Marriage Act and paved the way for the 2015 Obergefell case which legalized same-sex “marriage.” Notice not just her remarks and demeanor, but also that of the moderator and audience – all of whom not only consider themselves entirely victorious in the culture war on this matter but also consider us to be people worthy of rejection, derision, and mocking laughter.
This second clip (14:19) is from Ryan Anderson in which he discusses his recent book on the matter. As winsome as he is, and as respectful to the other side as he is, I cannot imagine the other side accepting his proposed truce of live and let live. You’ll recall what happened with the proposed Indiana and Arkansas RFRA laws earlier this year.
In spite of all this, God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7). He will judge sin and those who mock Him will be brought to shame. Though we should not withdraw from the political realm (because God expects us to be responsible citizens), we should not expect a political remedy until and unless there is a massive spiritual awakening in the country. In the absence of that (and we are certainly absent of it now), God will deliver us as individuals and families since the nation has turned its back on Him.
