The two largest rallies in the history of France occurred this year as folks came out in an attempt to sway the government against approving gay marriage and adoption. They dubbed it France’s Moral Revolution. Each rally had over 1 million participants, with one rally estimated at 1.4 million.
Despite the voice of the people, France’s constitutional court approved a pro gay-marriage and adoption bill that has already passed through parliament. The president is expected to sign it in into law.
2.4 million demonstrators with “1 Father, 1 Mother = That’s Marriage” and “Father, Mother, Children, It’s Natural!” slogans were not enough to sway the progressive French legislature and courts.
This is hardly surprising.
This is proof that what the Bible is telling us is true.
Biblical commands on the issue of life and lifestyle which stood the test of time, are now trampled under the banner of love, acceptance, progress and enlightenment. Apostle Paul warned us about this degeneration in one of his famous lists in 2 Timothy 3:
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money,boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.”
This is a normal progression of social degeneration.
It will continue until the coming of our Lord, and it tells us that His return is that much closer.
Despite this development, the Church will continue to proclaim the Gospel and biblical truth.

No, the church isn’t proclaiming any truth, and bigotry is not changed by wrapping it in scripture.
Not much we can do at this point…
preach the Gospel…
No, Scripture is not bigotry, and nor is God
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Standing!.
Paul’s final words describe this degeneration you’ve noted. I too think that His second coming is close, and I agree with you that the Gospel must be preached.
I particularly like the verse that Manny has shared. We are to take up the whole armor in these days in which we live. Such evil times they are!
