Liberal theology doesn't draw a crowd. For the Colson Center, I'm John Stonestreet with The Point.

A recent survey by LGBT advocacy group Church Clarity found that none of the 100 largest churches in America affirm same-sex unions. These churches represent over a million Christians and show that despite a media and political class that's mostly accepted so-called same-sex "marriage," the biggest churches in this country are not raising the rainbow flag.

Mark Tooley of the Institute on Religion and Democracy says that while this doesn't mean all megachurches necessarily have solid theology, it does show that twisting Scripture to suit the sexual revolution doesn't fill the pews. This is especially clear when you contrast megachurches and conservative denominations—many of which are growing—with dying, mainline, liberal Protestant churches.

Now, the news isn't all good. The survey also found that while these megachurches weren't affirming of homosexual relationships, many have not made their position public or clear. That's a pity, because Christ was clear about the definition of marriage. And His bride should be too.
