Challenge: Shouldn't Christians Retreat?

Today's challenge comes from a question we received on Twitter:

Shouldn't American Christians retreat from the gay marriage issue? It's unwinnable.

What do you think? There are several facets of this challenge that you can address: Should we stop fighting for a man/woman definition of marriage? Is the issue unwinnable? If so, does the fact that an issue is unwinnable mean there's no value in presenting our argument? What purpose might God have for our continuing to argue for what's right when the issue is unwinnable? When might He prefer us to stop arguing? Is retreat in this situation even possible?

Tell us how you think this challenge should be answered in the comments below, and then check back on Thursday to hear Alan's response.
