There are many things at stake in the attempt to redefine marriage to include homosexual unions. We should never lose sight of the tremendous threat it poses to freedom of religion and speech in our country. Robert Knight lays this out well in this piece. He writes:
Which brings us to the bigger picture. The Left’s drive for “gay rights” poses the greatest domestic threat to the freedoms of religion,
speech and assembly. When traditional morality is equated with racist
bigotry, civil rights enforcement becomes a gun aimed at the head of
citizens, forcing them to choose between God and Caesar. That should
never happen in America, where our founders said rights come from our
Creator, not capricious man, who can mistake fashion for morality.
