Why I Will Never Officiate a Gay Marriage
Gay marriage is now legal in our state. As a pastor, I find that weddings in general are a challenge. Those challenges will increase with the reality of gay marriage as formally sanctioned by our state.
At the root of the issue for me is the very purpose of marriage. When you ask people what the purpose of marriage is, they are likely to say things like, "to be happy or fulfilled," "because I love my mate," "to raise children," "because it’s the right thing to do."
