This is why you cannot compromise with leftists or cede your position based on their arguments. They do not want to come to an understanding—they want obedience. That’s all they will accept. Make one concession and they’ll demand another, and another, and another, unto infinity.
If you let up on the rightness of your fundamental position—in this case, that homosexuality is a perversion and gay marriage is an abomination—then you’ll quickly discover that you’ve let up on your right to hold that position. I suspect the next step will be the revocation of tax-exempt status for religious entities that do not amend their doctrines to make sodomy and same-sex “marriage” morally righteous.
Churches and religious organizations who do not strike Romans 1:26–28, Jude 1:5–8, 1 Timothy 1:8–11, Mark 10:6–9, 1 Corinthians 7:2, and many other passages from the Bible will be subject to financial and tax penalties that will cripple most of them. Once that is complete, the full, Roman-style persecution will begin in earnest.
If there will be any silver lining when that day arrives, it will be final separation of the wheat from the chaff. I suspect we’ll discover quite a lot of chaff. But the few Christians who remain steadfast in their faith, even as it is outlawed and its adherents subjected to all manner of indignities, can at least look around at one another and know they are finally in the company of true believers.
