Focus on the Family's cry for religious freedom ignors gay marriage

When it comes to Obamacare, Focus on the Family President Jim Daly is crying freedom of religion, the free exercise of conscience and government noninterference. But when it comes to gay marriage, this Colorado Springs evangelical ministry asks the government to define marriage as one man and one woman.

In his Feb. 13th article entitled “What Every Christian Ought to Know about President Obama’s Healthcare Mandate,” Daly said, “In matters of faith and conscience, it is in the best interest of all Americans, of every ideological stripe, that this limit, this line, not be crossed.”

For decades Focus on the Family has hypocritically crossed that line: since gay marriage is not found in their Bible, it cannot be found in anyone else’s Bible, and government must back their Bible.

Daly needs to revisit gay marriage and “the free exercise of faith and conscience.” My conscience is fine with gay marriage.
