From a very brief bit of research it seems that being gay, lesbian or transgender directly relates to, at most, 10% of the population. Using my basic math training I am able to work out that 90% of the population is heterosexual. [What they do in their own closets is up to them.]
And yet, the church [small c as I really don’t think the whole body agrees] has chosen this as a battle ground: marriage should not be re-defined. We’ll keep quiet about the last re-definition of marriage that took place under the auspices of the Defender of the Faith.
I know that some people hold the sanctity of marriage dear. I am also aware that my own personal experience has left me a little jaded. However, is something that effects less than 1 in 10 the battle ground on which to lift our head to Christ at the end of time?
My question to you, and myself, is what is occupying 90% of our time?
