No. 7. Gay Rights

Ad Feedback

Pivotal battles over marriage and the homosexual agenda took shape across the nation, with gay activists claiming the tide has turned in their favor.

However, when it comes to what the public thinks about gay marriage, the record is clear: In every state that put the issue to a vote, voters supported traditional marriage.

In addition, Congress overwhelmingly passed the landmark Hate Crimes law which gave special protections to gays and lesbians. The law is concerning to opponents who fear it could create serious legal troubles for Christians.

Here are some of the key highlights CBN News reported on this year on the advancement of the gay rights agenda, the fight within the Church, various custody battles involving ex-gays, and more.
