1. Lots of times I struggle with how hard-edged and certain of himself Dr. Moore is. That said, I think his post is both thoughtful and correct. Non-christians who wed are basically submitting themselves to a “legal” marriage. If that’s what they want, they should have a “legal” representative in the form of a judge.

    A minister performs “spiritual” marriages, that is, marriages founded in and defined by Christ. This is a sacred privilege, and one they should not cheapen by offering it to all comers.

    After all, if it’s just a legal ceremony and pastors use their power however they please without drawing lines, what’s to dissuade accusations of unequal treatment when they won’t marry homosexuals?

    Thanks for the good link.
