Tony Evans, bestselling author and megachurch pastor, commented in NPR's Morning Edition that the issue of same-sex marriage does not have a civil rights component. Evans said the issue has particular significance to African American churches and that "the breakdown of the family is the single greatest challenge that we face today."
