An Argument Wears Thin

It would seem in the late great debate of blessed unions we must either cast marriage as the linchpin of our civilization -- that to change our chosen definition of this institution signals our downfall;

Sadly, neither idolatry nor utilitarianism make for good theology, nor do they disclose God's healing love for broken human hearts.
