Earlier today, the United States Supreme Court ruled that state-level bans on same-sex marriage are no longer legal in America. In other words, same-sex marriage is now the law of the land in the U.S.
How are evangelical Christians supposed to process this decision, and how do we move ahead? Here are four Christian sources that I'll be loosely monitoring about this specific issue, that can help us think things through. (Important note: I'm not necessarily endorsing all these sources will be saying. Read discerningly! And always remember that our final authority is the Bible.)
Through his speaking and writing, Russell Moore, President of the ERLC, has helped me think more biblically (and graciously and realistically) through a number of culturally-relevant issues. This is probably the first place I'll be monitoring constantly over the next few days and weeks. Find out more about the ERLC here.
A hub for "evangelical thought leaders" to have a "sense of community, coherence, and direction through thoughtful, biblical commentary on issues and through careful, caring reporting of the news" (from their FAQ page). Christianity Today will stay on top of reporting news about this issue (and many other issues of evangelical interest).

Still a solid ministry, advocating for healthy families - they'll surely be weighing in on the SCOTUS decision and its implications. Check out Jim Daly's post from earlier today, responding to the court's ruling.
