          The debate over homosexuality is arguably the most important moral issue of our day. Unfortunately, there isn't much of a debate anymore. Even those who oppose things like "Same Sex Marriage" still hold to views and ideas that undermine the very foundation of their biblical worldview. This video is an introduction to GfBC's Semper Reformanda 2014 DVD dealing with these issues.

            from Luisa Morenilla Added 197 1 0

            This audio slideshow documents some of the sights and sounds of Monday, February 9, 2015, the first day that same-sex marriage was legal in Alabama. Huntsville, Alabama's Big Spring Park was transformed into a sanctuary in which any couple with a marriage license could be wed for free. "Wedding Week" was organized by local volunteers when Madison County's probate judge said he would not perform any weddings for the week of February 9. The event ran through Friday, February 13, and more than 2,000 people were estimated to have participated in the festivities either as couples getting married, volunteers lending services and supplies, journalists covering the event, or simply as members of the community offering support.

                  On Monday, February 9, 2015 Alabama issued marriage licenses to same-sex couple for the first time.

Yashinari Effinger and Adrian Thomas were the first couple to be issued a same-sex marriage license on Monday morning. They married immediately in Big Spring Park where a crowd of volunteers, well wishers, and journalists were waiting to witness and document the historic moment. Reverend Dr. Ellin Jimmerson of Huntsville's Weatherly Heights Baptist Church married the couple. Please note: The full ceremony is not represented in this piece. It has been edited for length.

                    from The UpTake Added 36 0 0

                    At 12:01 AM, August 1, 2013, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak began a series of 45 same-sex marriages in the rotunda of Minneapolis City Hall. This was the first day these marriages were legal in Minnesota. On February 5, 2015, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges and Deputy Secretary of State Ann Kaner-Roth unveiled a bronze plaque on a post in the rotunda commemorating this event. Kaner-Roth had been executive director of Project 515, a major force in the formation of Minnesotans United For All Families that resulted in the defeat of the 2012 anti-gay marriage amendment and then the passage of legislation enabling same-sex marriages. Participants included Rybak, Secretary of State Steve Simon, State Senator Scott Dibble, State Representative Karen Clark, Lt. Governor Tina Smith and the chamber section of the Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus. Many of the couples married that evening returned for this commemoration. Rybak described how the ceremonies were planned to not be a conveyor belt of love, but instead a very personal, respectful series of events .
