gay marriageA Few Things to Consider Before Supporting Gay Marriage | Kevin DeYoung | The Gospel Coalition
I’ve heard it many times. Last week was only the most recent. A pundit on the radio opined that opposing gay marriage is “Neanderthal” because he believes, “people should be able to marry whoever they want.”  Read Post
