A Challenge to Christians Who Support Same-Sex Marriage- Article by Doug Groothuis

This is a fair challenge I think. The burden of proof lies with the Christian supporter of Same-Sex Marriage as they are resisting millennia of the traditional understanding.  This type of supporter can be identified as either a “liberal Christian” or a “libertarian Christian”.
