As I have stated many times, all major Christian doctrines have their origins in Genesis, which is foundational for the Christian faith. Some folks wave off Genesis and creation as incidental and want to get to what they consider the "good stuff", but they are doing themselves (and others) a tremendous disservice. Of course, atheists, theistic evolutionists, and other owlhoots malign Genesis because it threatens their faith in evolutionism, and they know the importance of Genesis to the Christian faith.
Why do we wear clothes? It's found in Genesis. When did sin begin? Genesis. What is first promise of the Redeemer? Genesis, again. What is the foundation for marriage? That's right, Genesis again. The world is increasingly hostile to the truth of Scripture as well as more accommodating to secularism and atheism. Although persecution in the West is mild in comparison to what Christians endure in other parts of the world, it does exist and is escalating.

Third, another from the UK, Gordon Larmour was arrested for what he said in the course of street preaching. He was asked what God thinks of homosexuals, and he responded by telling them that God created Adam and Eve to have children. The homosexual man who asked the question argued with Larmour, and even chased him. But Larmour was arrested. Eventually, the charges were dismissed. I suggest that you read his story here.
The second and third stories involved homosexuality and marriage. Again, marriage is established in the foundational book of Christian doctrine, Genesis. People of the world, whether atheists, false Christians, or anyone else who is not redeemed by the blood of Jesus, hates the righteous (1 John 3:11-13, Luke 6:22, John 8:44). Hate is a characteristic of people under Satan's control, and I think this gives us an understanding of why they try to shut down uncompromising truth in God's Word.
