Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and What Justice Gorsuch Hath Wrought

John Stonestreet and Shane Morris discuss the long-term consequences of the Supreme Court decision in Bostock vs. Clayton County, in which Justice Neil Gorsuch stood logic and language on their head and essentially re-wrote Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

As John argues, the decision will inevitably extend to areas like education and women's sports. And as Shane relates, by equating sexual orientation and gender identity with race, the Court is putting believers in traditional sexual morality on the level with racists and bigots.

Also in this episode: A Christian pastor argues that to win the next round of the culture war, Christians will need to have more children and raise them in the faith. So naturally he got a lot of flak--even from Christians. How is this possible? John and Shane discuss.

John and Shane also take listeners' questions: Today on end of life decisions and whether monogamy is making a comeback.

And we also share a segment of author Natasha Crain's presentation at our Truth Love Together event entitled, "Teaching Your Kids Truth in a Noisy Age."

Christians Should Always Obey the Law
You’re in a conversation and someone says, “Is it ever ok for Christians to disobey the law?” What would you say? People should obey the law. Social order is good and our laws preserve the social order. If people only obeyed the laws they like, the result would be chaos. But what about when laws are bad? Should Christians obey bad laws too? The next time someone says that Christians should always obey the law, in all cases, remember these four things. First, God created Government. Christians show submission to God by submitting to authorities God created. Second, Christians should obey the law. God calls Christians to be obedient, faithful citizens, even in cases of bad leadership. Third, working within the law to challenge bad laws is not only acceptable for Christians, it may be an obligation. Fourth, Christians cannot obey man’s laws if it conflicts with God’s law. Both scripture and church history are filled with evidence that the duty to obey man’s law ends when it calls for disobedience to God’s law.
