Traditional Marriage

Here's a pretty old legacy post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 20 years ago, in 2004, on the World Wide Web.

With today’s narrow aversion of further defeat for the cause of gay marriage in Michigan, some conservative Christians are alarmed about the prospects for traditional marriage:

State Rep. Jerry Kooiman, R-Grand Rapids, said he was disappointed by the vote.

This was an opportunity for West Michigan to make clear our belief that marriage is between one man and one woman, he said.

Jack Hoogendyk of Portage.

In troubled times like these, there’s nothing like solace from the Word of God:

Now that’s some old time religion!
