  1. Hi Dr. Brown,

    I enjoy what you do tremendously. I’m curious to know if you’ve ever read Matthew Parris’ article in The Times (UK newspaper) WHO’S TOTALLY GAY? THERE’S NO STRAIGHT ANSWER. It’s phenomenal!

    This guy is a gay atheist and I agree with every word of it…and I think you might too.
    It would be a fantastic tool in discussions considering this author’s bias is negligible.
    It’s in the comments section of this webpage below if you don’t have a subscription to the Times…

  2. Great discussion today Mike. I agree with a few of the callers that if you have adjusted to the Spirit to where He can lead you in your steps and understanding, that your friends, family and co-workers will know intuitively that they need not ask you to attend a same-sex “wedding” as they will know you by your life that that would be something you would not endorse.

    Amen, good calls today.

  3. I would not go to a so called wedding. I would take a stand, but in kindness and honesty. Would you attend a pit bull fight? How about attending a sex party? No, I have my standards and if I was there I would be sharing truth! I have a responsibility to stand up and share the word of God.

  4. This is one of those issues that are going to become more and more prevalent as our society becomes increasingly perverse. There was a comment that Dr. Brown made about a quarter through the show that I found very telling. He said that “if we’re going to be worried about offending people, then we’re not going to serve Jesus.” It brought to mind Galatians 1:10: “Do I now seek to please men or God? For if I sought to please men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” That, I think, is the crux of the issue. We’re either going to be God pleasers or men pleasers. We can’t be both!

  5. I enjoy your program and your insight. However, I disagree with your conclusion on this issue. In several examples given in order to equate same sex marriage with immorality – the man who leaves his wife and 4 children to marry someone else, the example in the comments section of a pit bull fight, or a sex party, etc. – none of these can be compared to a ceremony where two people pledge themselves to each other in the sight of God and man. A pit bull fight? A sex party? You don’t need the Bible to be your reason for refusing to attend these events.

    I heard a lot of “I won’t attend” because “it’s wrong”, but in truth we attend events all the time where non-Biblical acts take place. I didn’t hear a good example of how attending a same-sex wedding is in direct moral conflict with a guest’s religious beliefs. I would still love to hear one. Just because someone calls it a marriage or a wedding, doesn’t mean you have to take it to heart.

    If someone blesses you enough to invite you their ceremony, being there is, in my opinion, the real act of love. It doesn’t change your faith, your conviction, or your relationship with Christ.

    Humbly, thanks for the opportunity to comment.
