Cal Thomas' column of March 13, "The sound of inevitability," laments the growing acceptance of same-sex marriage.
He suspects it is inevitable, due to "a growing number of Americans abandoning the source of morality and goodness," which is "a book found in most hotel room drawers."
In multiple places, the Bible endorses the institution of slavery. It endorses genocidal war. There are many people mentioned in it who have multiple wives and concubines, and from cover to cover, the Bible says not a word against polygamy.
There is not a word in favor of equal rights for women, for freedom of religion or for representative government. This country was founded in rebellion against a divinely anointed king.
Have Americans abandoned the "rules for living and social order" laid down in the Bible? Yes, for some time now.
