Gay Marriage and the TMB forums (Please Read)

Postby Dale » Mon Jun 29, 2015 6:48 am

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) handed down a ruling making same-sex marriage legal in the US. This is a very emotionally, politically, and especially spiritually charged situation. On TheMarriageBed forums (and on TMB as a whole), the official position on this subject is clearly and unequivocally that marriage is between "one man and one woman." Therefore, the boards are not open to discussions about "gay marriage", polygamy, polyandry, or any other traditional marriage "alternative". At TMB, our focus is and always will remain one of strengthening sex and intimacy for married Christians. Any posts or threads (especially in this present climate of the SCOTUS ruling) which detracts from that mission have the potential to be removed from the boards at the discretion of our moderation team. Below this message is a quote from the TMB Board Rules which is germane to this subject.

As a Christian ministry, we do call all believers to earnest prayer on this matter, and also ask that in each of our lives we continue to exemplify a Christ-like character in all our interactions, especially with those who would disagree with us, and that we all continue to strive to strengthen God's definition of marriage as reflected in Genesis 1-2--not just in our own marriages, but in every marriage to which God gives us the opportunity to minister.

If you have any questions regarding TMB's stance on marriage or our forum rules, please PM me as the Board Czar or send an email to og@themarriagebed.com.

TMB Board Rules wrote:2. BE MARRIED OR ENGAGED:
The Marriage Bed bulletin board is a safe place for married and engaged couples (one man and one woman) to talk about sex and intimacy. If you are not married or officially engaged, please do not post to these boards. Posters who are "serious in their relationship," "pre-engaged," or any other form of "serious without being engaged" will have their posts removed.

Thanks for posting this and for the clarification!
