You’ve heard this refrain ad nauseam. “Why are you fixated on other people’s sex lives?!” “Why are you so one dimensional? Can’t you talk about anything else?” The catalyst on my recent post was this: “…..do you set homosexuality aside as a single target, just ’cause you feel like it?”
Let me give it to you straight. Pun absolutely intended because my editor has a keen sense of humor and if you can read my posts without the rose colored lens of hostility fastened firmly on your visage you would realize that. I focus much of my attention on the gay marriage debate and all that goes with it because it is this subject on which supporters of natural marriage are routinely demonized and sidelined. And, in my ever so humble opinion, this is the area where Christians need to be better equipped to lovingly and firmly present their case. However, because there is so much LIFE happening over here in my myopic narrow little world I have actually written about numerous topics throughout my 18, ohmyword EIGHTEEN month blogging odyssey.
I’ve written on orphans, communication, prayer, homelessness, human trafficking, several posts on abortion, persecution, biblical interpretation, the Jewish concept of the Messiah, apologetics, prostitution, friendship, discipleship, meekness, mercy, prodigals, hypocrisy, military chaplains, listening to God, “fearing” the Lord, trusting God, being the church, gender differences, several posts on methods of engaging the world, evangelism, and the reliability of scripture. If I go on I might be accused of bragging. So I will stop but methinks you get the program.
My dear readers. If you are still with me do click on one or, if you are feeling indulgent, a few of the links above. How many comments do you see after them? Five? Fifteen? Maybe more than 25? (and that’s almost surely an abortion post.)
Now. Have a look at the comments after one of the posts below. By comments I mean sometimes vitriolic, disdainful, arrogant, intolerant and downright mean responses. If you are still being generous with your time do note the nature and number of comments:
Notice anything strange? Anywhere between 50-200+ comments on the gay marriage posts.
Now that you’ve had a chance to review the examples for yourself, I have a question. (Only for you, because I believe I may already know the answer.)
Is the issue that Christians only talk about gay marriage?
Or is gay marriage the only subject about which opponents want to hear?
