The natural, reasonable, secular case for upholding traditional marriage is wholly consistent with the Biblical case.
Do we really need the LGBTQ (questioning) establishing policy and determining our rule of law? Do they actually care about what is healthy and good for society? All society?
They are setting bad precedents and only breeding confusion. This is not religion; it is natural law and common sense.
A marriage license and the whole idea of marriage as defined by Jesus is one man and one woman for life. It’s a universal principle and it would behoove us for it to be continued to be recognized as such. If not, we are merely lying to ourselves. We are trying to make a square peg fit a round hole.
Many conservative gays don’t favor same-sex marriage, and they are threatened and harassed by LBGT radicals. People forget that virtually every state repeatedly voted against SSM. Legalizing SSM is being accomplished through sinister means. As the GOP establishment and registered Republicans keep appeasing (and being duped) they are digging their own graves…and the Lord is not pleased.
On the marriage license the criteria is abundantly clear; the participants are what they were created: male and female. No recent manipulations can alter these truths.
What is marriage? Who defines it and why? Why does the state recognize marriage?
On what grounds does the state redefine marriage? Where does its basis lie? Why should religious humanism and radical fringe set the standard?
If we are going to make marriage arbitrary there are many seen and unforeseen consequences. Remember, free public education was founded on a desire to teach kids how to read the Bible. A Bible which is clear on the matter. We are breeding arbitrary confusion when we enable the unnatural marital union of non-counterparts.
Despite an acknowledgement of the highly publicized movement to manipulate winds and tides, please allow me to once again declare a final and everlasting endorsement of marriage defined (in both areas of church and state).
“For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
May God Richly Bless Us!
