We'll go ahead and think of this as a WIN!
During a recent interview, president Jim Daly of global Christian ministry Focus on the Family admitted that his side has "probably lost" the fight against same sex marriage:
"We're losing on that one, especially among the 20- and 30-somethings: 65 to 70 percent of them favor same-sex marriage. I don't know if that's going to change with a little more age—demographers would say probably not. We've probably lost that. I don't want to be extremist here, but I think we need to start calculating where we are in the culture."
"We've got to look at what God is doing in all of this…Have we done such a poor job with marriage, is He so upset with our mishandling of it in the Christian community, along with our lust of the flesh as a nation, that He is handing us over to this polygamy and same-sex situation in order to, perhaps, drive the Christian community, the remnant, into saying, 'OK, there's no no-fault divorce in our church?'"
And here's Jim Daly on gay activists' view of Christian marriage:
"I sat down with one. He said, 'You guys haven't done so well with marriage. Why are you upset about us having a try?' We've got to look at our own house, make sure that our marriages are healthy, that we're being a good witness to the world. Then we can continue to work on defending marriage as best as we can."
Sorry, Jim, but as we saw in the latest Gallup Poll…you are most definitely losing this one!
The phrase "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" comes to mind. Think about it, Jim!
