How Should Christians React to the Supreme Court's Decision on Same-Sex Marriage?

Douglas Wilson explains here.  Here is an excerpt:
But in the meantime, we must use these enclaves, for however long they last, as places to gather, worship God, regroup, educate our children, marshal our resources, and counterattack.
How do we counterattack? By preaching the Word. These people cannot understand words because they will not worship God the Father through His Word. Given the nature of man, and the nature of the gospel given to save the natural man, none of this should come as a surprise to us. So what do we do? We preach the Word, whether or not anyone wants to hear it.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim. 4:2–4).
Taking all in all, this is a glorious time to be alive. Faithfulness to Jesus Christ is becoming more obviously meaningful by the day."
There is much more. If you are wondering why there is a picture of the Queen from Alice in Wonderland, then you have to read why Wilson says the character is relevant to figure out why I posted it.
