The Shattering of Jars of Clay
Jars of Clay Beginning on Tuesday, April 21st, Dan Haseltine, front-man for the popular Christian band Jars of Clay, took to Twitter to announce his apparent support for same-sex "marriage." And for the life of him, he can't figure out a single good reason to oppose it.

It is for reasons like this that we have been sounding the alarm these last 10 years.

In a series of tweets posted over a three-day period, and prompted by a movie he watched while in flight, he wrote: "The treatment of people as less than human based on the color of skin is crazy... Or gender, or sexual orientation for that matter."

Of course, to compare skin color with "sexual orientation" is to compare apples with oranges, as has been demonstrated many times before.

But that was only the beginning. He added, "Not meaning to stir things up BUT... Is there a non-speculative or non 'slippery slope' reason why gays shouldn't marry? I don't hear one."

This really boggles the mind.

When you're sliding down a dangerous slippery slope, you don't say, "Give me one good reason we're in danger, other than the fact that we're careening down this deadly slope."

No. You grab hold of something to stop your fall and then figure out how to climb back to solid ground.

Does this gifted artist not realize that the only reason we're talking about redefining marriage today is because we are well down that slope already?

This is the day of full-blown incestuous relationships on popular TV shows like Game of Thrones; of other shows glorifying polyamory (married and dating! ), polygamy (from Big Love to Sister Wives to My Five Wives), and teen pregnancy; of news reports about the "wedding" of three lesbians. read more

No, Pastor, Jesus Did Not Tell You to Support Homosexuality

This pastor says, "There's no real indication monogamous, gay partnerships were the aim of the biblical texts, but there were some very clear examples of exploitative same-sex sexuality, like temple prostitution or slave sex, masters requiring slaves to perform sexual services as part of their ownership of them."
