      Let Gay People Rehab Marriage
      Post by Candace Chellew-Hodge

      Who needs marriage? Albert Mohler Jr. believes everyone needs it-but only as
      God intended, of course.

      In the Christian Post, Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological
      Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, writes:

      God created the institution of marriage-defined on his terms-as the central
      institution of human society. Marriage was given to us by our Creator as the
      central institution for sexual relatedness, procreation, and the nurture of
      children. But, even beyond these goods, God gave us marriage as an
      institution central to human happiness and flourishing. Rightly understood,
      marriage is essential even to the happiness and flourishing of the
      unmarried. It is just that central to human existence, and not by accident.

      Mohler spends most of his commentary bemoaning the downfall of marriage and
      a new study from Time magazine and the Pew Research Center that shows
      marriage is in decline. Nearly 40 percent of those surveyed said they
      believed marriage is obsolete. Forty-four percent of those under the age of
      30 believe that.
