I once saw a Christian woman -- I believe it was Maggie Gallagher -- before Congress pleading against the legalization of gay marriage. I sympathized with the sentiment behind her plea, but it was and is too late for such appeals. When a society even allows such a subject to be discussed, it is over. Those who would be labeled the extremist lunatic fringe – the Christian separatist and militia groups, etc. – have the right idea. We are well past the point where a Christian can expect anything good from the American political process or from the American legal system.
