Today the United States Supreme Court heard arguments on California’s Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state. At this moment it is unclear how the court will rule, or how far. Our hope is that the Court remembers that a civil institution, such as marriage, requires no biblical justification in this country.
Not that there is any clear biblical justification to begin with. We’ve explored quite thoroughly the wide interpretation the Bible offers on marriage, and that it is far from clear that so-called “traditional” marriage enjoys a biblical endorsement.
