Re: Gay marriage represents "anything goes"
Careful Yaro. Remember to a fundamentalist Christian the world is in a CONTINUAL decline up until the end times. The only difference between the ones of old and now is that they lean on that history of "decline" to come to the conclusion that the end times are even closer.

Of course, biblical creationists are committed to belief in God's written Word, the Bible, which forbids bearing false witness; --AIG (lest they forget)

Re: Gay marriage represents "anything goes"
I can name time periods in OUR history that were more 'depraved', and hostile to the population, than any description of modern day america. So the point is moot.
If anything, it illsutrates an 'up and down' motion and not a steady decline.
Yes but remember that is a reasonable position. We are not talking about reasonable we are talking about what the fundie believes.
To them the past is a golden age where, although times were hard, the faith was strong and the world was more innocent. Even though the world has gotten "better" in the sense of things such as having better standards for human rights, the faith no longer permeats the world and therefore it is worse. Then there are punctuated issues such as gay rights that just tip the scales of the world to the "hell in a handbasket" state.
All I am saying is that the perspective is different and trying to put it in the context of an ever changing landscape of improvements means nothing to someone who believes the world is going to go shit and Jesus is going to come any day now.

Of course, biblical creationists are committed to belief in God's written Word, the Bible, which forbids bearing false witness; --AIG (lest they forget)
