Southern Baptist leader Rev. Al Mohler Tells Christians To Boycott Same-Sex Weddings. These Christians Disagree.

Prominent Southern Baptist leader Rev. Al Mohler is calling on evangelical Christians to boycott same-sex weddings — even among their loved ones — saying attending them only serves to celebrate the “sinfulness of homosexuality.”
But for many of Mohler’s fellow Christians, his defiant stand against marriage equality is already falling flat.
Mohler, who serves as president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, recommends skipping out on same-sex nuptials in his forthcoming book We Cannot Be Silent, scheduled to hit bookshelves on October 27. According to the Religion News Service, he argues that attending such services is tantamount to an endorsement of same-sex marriage, which the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) officially opposes.
“At some point, attendance will involve congratulating the couple for their union,” he writes. “If you can’t congratulate the couple, how can you attend?”
