Nance: Christians Should Focus on Gay Marriage, not Sex Trafficking

Nance: Christians Should Focus on Gay Marriage, not Sex Trafficking June 17, 2013

Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America has a column in the Christian Post claiming that Christian ministers have their priorities wrong if they focus more on sex trafficking than on stopping gay marriage. But she only says this because she loves gay people so much:

The Supreme Court is reviewing challenges to state and federal laws that define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Lower courts ruled against these marriage laws, so now the Supreme Court has the opportunity to uphold marriage and return authority for marriage policy to citizens and their elected representatives, or step in as judicial despots and cut the debate short by making a broad stroke ruling. And pastors and conservative politicians are stuck in a game of “Would You Rather?”

Would you rather address the issue of sex trafficking or marriage? Sex Trafficking…

We are losing battles as Christian conservatives follow their leaders into no man’s land — the land of not actually saying what you believe, where no man is offended because no man actually says anything. The issue of marriage is the perfect example. Many feel it is just too hard to talk about this issue. As it becomes more and more politically incorrect to support marriage only defined as the union between one man and one woman, many have decided to be silent in this area and just focus on other things. “Love,” they say.

We all have friends and family who are homosexuals and we love them. We feel for them and we care deeply about their well being. As Christians, our whole belief system is summarized in loving God above all and our neighbor as ourselves. And that is our chief objective.

Yes, of course. She loves gay people so much that she thinks it’s more important to do everything possible to prevent them from getting equal rights instead of stopping women, many of them children, from being forced into prostitution. Those are some seriously screwed up priorities.
