Perhaps the biggest issue facing how people view Christians and Christianity in our society has been and will continue to be homosexuality.
An ever increasing percentage of the population – including many Christians – believe that homosexuals should be allowed to legally marry, and it seems that it is only a matter of time before gay marriage is legalized in every state. Yesterday Montana became the latest state to legalize it. Other countries have already done it. This brings up a lot of questions for churches and private parties who rent out facilities for weddings and for ministers who officiate weddings as to what will happen if they refuse to participate in gay weddings out of moral obligation.
Needless to say, there is increasing pressure for Christians to change the view held by Christians for 2000 years regarding homosexual practice.
