.- Liberty Counsel president Mat Staver says the battle for traditional marriage has become the fight that will determine the future of the United States, and it has overtaken abortion as the most important cultural issue, reported AgapePress. "If the family goes, it in fact destroys the entire structure, and it in fact is an additional nail in the coffin against the unborn child," he was quoted as saying.

"Once you start breaking apart the family and say that marriage is really not necessary for procreation, you have even further escalated the issue of abortion and cheapened the sanctity of human life," he said, according to AgapePress.

He also predicts that if the marriage battle is lost, Christians will eventually lose the right to openly acknowledge biblical truth and face legal penalties for speaking against homosexuality.

In related news, two women and a man in Utah have initiated a court challenge to have the state ban on polygamy lifted.

The Family Research Council believes this court challenge may have a positive impact in the same-sex marriage debate and help people realize that the slippery-slope warnings, advocated by pro-family groups, are true and not alarmist or exaggerated.
