Another GOP Senator, citing personal emotional reasons, has come out in favor of same-sex marriage (see link to article below).
Our leaders–in and out of the Church–are mired in subjectivity, willing to allow their emotions to influence the future of the nation. Not that we are ever unbiased or that we are ever truly free of the influence of our emotions and experiences. In fact,those things can certainly serve us if harnessed. But guess what? Truth and commitment to it is the harness! It is not OK to make decisions solely based on your own harrowing brush with death or on recent information that one of your children is gay. Where are the statesmen and the churchmen and the civic leaders who once understood the value of commitment to principles: principles not founded in self-serving subjectivity, but founded on truth that comes from outside of ourselves? Truth that is self-evident? Truth that reflects the source of Truth which is the Almighty God of the Bible? It’s rare that one actually gets to observe the crumbling of a nation’s moral infrastructure as it happens.
