Southern Baptists Head: God Will Punish Us If We Don’t Fight Same-Sex Marriage

“While some evangelicals may be bowing down to the deception of the inclusiveness of same-sex marriage, we will not bow down nor will we be silent. We do not need to redefine what God Himself has defined already. America – we stand believing that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. We have believed this and do believe this and will continue to believe this as a convention of churches. We stand for biblical and traditional marriage. Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” – Southern Baptists Convention president Ronnie Floyd, speaking today at their convention in Columbus, Ohio.
