Commentary by John Stonestreet & G. Shane Morris

The fight over same-sex “marriage” already seems like a distant memory. But the way it was fought is the mother of all worldview lessons.

Editorial Comment

One of the biggest mistakes leading to our defeat was the use of the term “gay marriage” instead of “same-sex marriage”. If we were really defending marriage and were opposed to two men or two women “marrying,” it shouldn’t matter if they are homosexual or heterosexual. The left wanted everyone to believe that defending marriage was an attack on homosexuals, and us using the term “gay marriage” to describe what we were opposing supported their accusations. Unfortunately, the person who composed this headline still doesn’t get it. - BK
