Too much 'tolerance'


---- — Webster's definition of "tolerance" is the ability or willingness to tolerate something.

Latest polls indicate the majority of people, about 54 percent, tolerate or have no problem with same sex marriage and that percentage is increasing week by week. Evidently those individuals in favor of same sex marriage do not realize that marriage between a man and woman is a sacrament designed by God that serves as a metaphor for the relationship between Christ and his church.

Whenever one violates this natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God.

Anyone who professes to love and worship God must be opposed to same sex marriage. Also, those who are willing to "tolerate" this sin are sinning.
