Concerned Women For America advises churches to lockdown exclusionary marriage views

by Jeremy Hooper

While they don't specifically name the "emerging threat" that is so clearly the basis for this advisory document, the Concerned Women For America do want the nation's churches to make sure they put up all the proper walls before the "ever-evolving cultural, political, and legal definition" makes them see just a little too accepting. To accomplish this task, CWA suggests a "statement on marriage and sexuality" that squeezes adultery; fornication; homosexual, bisexual, or transgender relations; polygamy; and bestiality into one big box of "no!":

Regular readers know that I 100% support the right of churches to make these decisions for themselves. That said, I'd probably follow a source other than a D.C. special interest group if I were more concerned about the peaceful kingdom of Jesus and less concerned about the contrived "culture wars" of Pat Buchanan and Jerry Falwell.

Oh, and that whole "bestiality, gayness; tomato, tomato" thing, too. Might want to shy away from that if you care about retaining/gaining followers of an era where folks are more than passingly familiar with both LGBT people and canines.
