“In John 18, Christ states specifically that his kingdom is not of this world. In Romans 7, Paul makes the provocative statement, ‘you were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ.’ Christians are explicitly encouraged to tune out fads and focus on timeless truths. At his death trial, Socrates describes himself as ‘a sort of gadfly, given to the state by the God,’ needed to sting the rump of a complacent and misguided state. Hundreds of years before Christ, he presages the role Christians must play today in the gay marriage debate. Gay marriage will cause changes far beyond the average citizen’s predictive powers. Raised by a lesbian mom, I’ve learned the hard way; nobody in society wants to slow down and ponder whether these changes are really the right thing for future generations.” – Homocon horcrux Robert Oscar Lopez, writing for U-T San Diego.
