NAE fires Cizik

Richard Cizik, the Washington DC representative of the National Association of Evangelicals was forced to resign. In an article in Christiantiy Today he was quoted in an interview on "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross saying that while he did not agree with calling homosexual partnership "marriage" he was not against "civil unions". The N.A. E. under the leadership of Minneapolis pastor Leith Anderson, saw that statement as crossing the line. Did he? Is not affirming the biblical understanding of marriage as that between a man and a woman the issue? If gay people choose to live in "civil unions" that have state (not church) sanctioning, and a christian defends the rights of those people whose life-style he (or she) really disagrees with, is that being loving or crossing a line?
