Christianity Today Calls Pro-LGBTQ ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ a “Win for the Common Good”

We’ve rarely been friendly to Christianity Today, and with good reason. Led by Russell Moore, they’re the progressive rag known for virtue-twerking and giving a platform to every weird and liberally insidious bent. Never forget that even before they egregiously came swinging against the violence at Capitol Hill on January 6th, laying the responsibility for the mayhem at the feet of the “white American church” and any leaders who voted for and supported the President, they proclaimed that anyone who voted for the GOP was an inherent racist who was committing “politically motivated spiritual violence” against black folk. 

They released editorials calling Trump voters “jobless” and “uneducated,” with former Editor-in-Chief Mark Galli explaining that he didn’t even know any Trump Supporters. This was the same guy who was a dedicated Roman Catholic for the last two years of his tenure there, and no one there even cared.

Christianity Today recently brought us such wonderful articles like the new Editor-in-Chief likening any churches being open during COV to engaging in “snake handling” or running an op-ed saying that polyamory provided an “attractive alternative” and that churches should be affirming. 

That’s who we’re dealing with here. This is all, even though just months ago, they were rocked by a major scandal, revealing that ‘sexual harassment went unchecked’ a company for a decade, all the while preening as our moral betters. 

In a new guest opinion column on their website, author Carl Esbeck defends the ironically named Respect for Marriage Act (RMS) that would protect and entrench same-sex marriages, describing it as a “win for the common good.”

After dispassionately detailing all its virtues and assuring folk that it’s not as bad as people say it is, that churches and pastors definitely won’t be forced to perform gay weddings and that it will definitely only apply to couples of two and not polygamists, he concludes:

All in all, RMA is a modest but good day’s work. It shows that religious liberty champions and LGBT advocates can work together for the common good. It says to the original House bill, “If a bill is about us, it has to be with us.” And it shows that Congress can still legislate, not just be a gaggle of egos who go to Washington to perform but never fix.

How unsurprising.

  1. The horrific losses by way of Pulse, Club Q, and LGBTQ suicide are a symptom of hatred that you can find here in the articles and comments.

    1. No, they are obviously a symptom of individual mental illness and/or evil, not religious organizations rightfully pushing back against behavior explicitly condemned by Scripture, and you know it.

  2. These days anything coming from Christianity Today is usually more edifying to the world than the faithful. This publication jumped the theological shark many years ago.

  3. The “Respect For Marriage” Act is a Trojan horse. Obviously it should be named the Disrespect Marriage and God Act, but deception has been fine tuned by the left. I think in the event this becomes the law if the land we won’t have to wait too long to see why 85,000 IRS agents we’re added to the government payroll. Every 501-c3, Christian entity, or for that matter any charity, church or business that doesn’t bow to the golden calf of same sex “marriage” will be held accountable by “Big Government”. Either bow or pay up will be the choices unless God steps in, after all Marriage and Government were instituted by Him, not man.

  5. I have been reading Christianity Today and your rag here.

    At least at Christianity Today they understand that they should keep their noses out of what other people do with their bodies, who others decide to marry and that the government shouldn’t be in business of brainwashing other people’s kids with your religion. On the other hand this is what you christofascists here want. You want to tell others who they can and can not marry, you want to tell others what they can do with their bodies and you want other people’s kids to be forced to accept your religion (you just have a nice way of saying it (put prayers in schools)). You are nothing but a bunch of fascists who are butthurt over people walking away from your religion. You cant accept the fact that your religion is going to be irrelevant soon so you are seeking government power to stop that from happening. A true American would understand that their religion does not get to dictate what others do. You are the reason we have so many problems in this country. Accept these facts and shove your god up your ass.
