"The Implications of Redefining Marriage are Staggering..."

The consequences of redefining marriage are formidable and grave, Michael Brown recently wrote at Charisma News.  Brown pointed out some of the absurdities of California’s new law deleting the “biased” and “outdated” terms “husband” and “wife” from the state’s marriage law.  The terms have been replaced with “spouse.” Women cannot be fathers and men cannot be mothers, […]
