1. The False Narrative of Gay “Marriage”

A few weeks ago the state legislature took up the issue of same-sex marriage. The outcome was regarded as a foregone conclusion.

The pastors demanded that legislators acknowledge that marriage “is an institution created by God to bring men and women together for the benefit of children that can only be created through the union of men and women.”
Their efforts paid off: Illinois did not succumb to the “inevitable.” They defeated “gay-marriage advocates and their supporters in the legislature in the bluest of blue states.”
