Russell Moore: We lost the culture war. Now prepare to welcome the “refugees”!

15 Dec



In June of 2015 Dr. Russell Moore wrote in the Washington Post:   Why the church should neither cave nor panic about the decision on gay marriage.

As I write this, the Supreme Court has handed down what will be the “Roe v. Wade” of marriage, redefining marriage in all 50 states.
