The New Orleans Saints Benjamin Watson penned a compassionate, but strongly principled response to the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage, reminding Christians in a Facebook post that we as a people should not bend to "relative morality," but also reminded us that, “Love Wins.”

The NFL star tight end, who is a father to four kids and getting ready for the birth of his fifth, spoke frankly about fighting pressure to conform to the world as our secularized society becomes more and more given over to whatever makes them feel good.

Watson wrote that, “We, as a nation, have continued our course into dangerous waters, shaking our fist and becoming our own gods, this individual Supreme Court ruling is not the cause, but simply evidence of how far we’ve gradually drifted.”

Read the short, but poignant excerpt from the post below:

"Relative morality is as capricious as the wind, leaving each generation to do what is right in their own eyes, while unknowingly undermining the exact concept of "right" that they are so desperately trying to attain. Instead of shooting for the mark, we lower it, doing what is good for "us" at the time, effectually creating our own truth, which when taken to its logical conclusion is always problematic."

"We, as a nation, have continued our course into dangerous waters, shaking our fist and becoming our own gods. This individual Supreme Court ruling is not the cause, but simply evidence of how far we've gradually drifted. The moral decay of America is not unlike moral decay in my own life, as I continually battle against self rule. It's a gradual decline."
