On Friday June 26, by a 5-4 margin, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that same-sex marriage is a Constitutionally protected right. As a Bible-believing Christian, a United Methodist minister, and a Hebrew Bible scholar who welcomes this ruling, I was not surprised that many other believers did not.
Most bewildering was this tweet from Christian radio talk show host Bryan Fischer: What none of these responses recognize is that not only are there many Christians, like me, who support this ruling, but that there are Christian churches–the United Churches of Christ, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Episcopal Church, to name three–that permitted their clergy to perform same sex marriages, where the law permitted, this decision.
Back a few years ago one of the few American CCM names you could drop in a UK Christian youth group meeting and get a glimmer of recognition was Carman's.
Such classics as "Who's In The House" and "Addicted To Jesus" were SERIOUSLY funky while his epics of Bible-turned-into-cartoon-melodrama like "Lazarus Come Forth" and "The Champion" were duly acted out before parent congregations by seemingly every Church-based drama team in Britain.
Then, with the release of the live album Sunday's On The Way in 1983, a string of CCM chart successes started, beginning with the title song.
As he continued his music career, Carman established the nonprofit organization Carman Ministries.
What is more, 48% of LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning) women and men identify as Christian–indeed, 13% identify as Evangelical, and 11% as Catholic, despite the position of the Roman Catholic Church and of most Evangelical denominations in opposition to homosexual acts, if not to same-sex attraction.
Are these persons, these denominations–let’s make it personal, am As Christians, we believe with deepest sincerity that the embrace of homosexual practice, along with other sins, keeps people out of the kingdom of God.They have fought for what they believed in much harder than the Christian community ever did. They comprise only 3% of the American population and took in the 83% who claim to be Christians and won.Similarly, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, when asked by ABC correspondent George Stephanopolous if he was calling for acts of civil disobedience against the Court’s ruling, replied: I don’t think a lot of pastors and Christian schools are going to have a choice.But Carman's musical diversity has bemused many, his renowned ability to lock into the musical pulse beat of youth offset by his nods to the Moms And Dads market.Witness the quantum musical differences between a release like 1996's T Surrender All: 30 Classic Hymns' where ancient American hymnody was treated to the most glutinously MOR renditions and his latest "Mission " single with its Street Flava and Club Mixes.I've watched TBN since my mid-'80s high school years, during televangelism's scandalous Jim-and-Tammy era.
