[…]  The world of the church, the state, and morality in our society has certainly changed over my 40+ years in holy orders. The governments of several nations have seemingly turned against sound morality and embraced homosexuality as one of the “in” things to be protected, even promoted. At the same time, those who resist will be crushed legally, as we already see happening in the UK, where a Christian family who ran a bed and breakfast within their home wished to restrict couples sharing a room to those who were husband and wife. This obviously meant that they wouldn’t rent to unmarried heterosexual couples, nor would they rent to homosexual couples. The hand of the court struck them down, giving a huge award to the gay couple who filed suit and threatening bankruptcy to the Christian couple.
