Touchstone has been accused of being rigid in its positions on many hot button issues. Yes, we are “staunchly” conservative or traditional when it comes to the sanctity of life and the sacredness of marriage.  In the United States, the Roe v. Wade decision of the Supreme Court was based on lies, demonstrably so. Friday’s Supreme Court decision on gay marriage is every bit as illegitimate as Roe v Wade. You can call abortion a choice if you wish, but doing so doesn’t make in any less a killing as well. There is no such thing as gay marriage. There is this thing envisioned by the court, and you can call it marriage if you wish, and insist that it is not a redefinition, but it is not marriage; if it were, it would also be a redefinition, one which the Supreme Court says citizens have no right to oppose and must accept. We at Touchstone will resist this, as we have Roe v. Wade–and any Christians or “churches” who embrace or enable the culture of death to devour more lives.
