What is happening to our country?Â Gays, who represent less than 3% of our population, are trying to dominate our culture and society. Love whom you want. Love the one youâre with. People donât really care. This is the message most people want to say but are afraid to because the LBGT (lesbian, bi-sexual, gay and transgender) community will verbally flog anyone who doesnât agree with them. Between gay marriage, gay adoptions, forcing the Boy Scouts to admit gay scouts and scout masters, and lauding a rich NBA player for announcing heâs gay, the message is clear from gay America to the 97% of the rest of us. You will accept our lifestyle as mainstream. My response: âNo I wonât.
My mother, Thelma Williams was thrust into an inherited family of four and eventually had eight children of her own, two of which were stillborn. She loved the first four as if they were her own and struggled mightily to provide a loving, nurturing and stable household for our family.
But then it occurred to me. Collins had a girlfriend of eight years. In fact, they were engaged to be married before he dumped her. This would make him âbisexual,â then, wouldnât it? So â and bear with me here â if being âgayâ makes him a hero, does being âbiâ make him a superhero? That. Is. Awesome! I donât know: âCaptain Switch-Hitterâ? (Sorry for the mixed metaphor.)
According to the unequivocal moral precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition â explicit throughout both the Old and New Testaments â homosexual behavior is sin. Sin is evil. Homosexual behavior is the central, defining characteristic of so-called âgay marriage.â Therefore, âgay marriageâ is evil. Christians are obligated to avoid sin â to âdo no evil.â
I have a question for some of the âold flag-waving fogeysâ (like me) out there (younger generations exempted). Could you have ever imagined, when you were in high school or college, the president of the United States of America coming out and publicly advocatingÂ men having sex with men,Â women having sex with women, and then the Supreme Court of the United States considering making thatÂ legal in the sight of man and God?
Unlike the abortion battle, most âChristiansâ are choosing to sit this one out. Itâs much easier to wear a tiny feet pin or put a âchoose adoptionâ sticker on the back of the mini-van than it is to stand up to Hollywood, Washington, New York and Sodom. After all, who wants to be called a hate filled bigot? When Christians choose cowardice they always have to couch it in self-righteous spirituality, as if they are somehow above the fray.
Hereâs what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being. Marriage is that biologically, spiritually and morally centered institution calculated to ensure responsible procreation and perpetuate the human race. Marriage â real marriage â represents the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society (any society that hopes to survive, at least).
Since the beginning of time, before marriage was formally recognized by state laws, it has been defined between a man and a woman not just for kicks but because people of the opposite sex have coupled off to procreate, as a means to continuing society. It takes a man and woman to biologically create a baby, so naturally society began to recognize marriage between a man and a woman to encourage stable families and cultures.
This week the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two of the most critical cases of our time. On Tuesday, March 26, attorneys will make the pitch both for and against Californiaâs Proposition 8. This, of course, is the Golden Stateâs pro-marriage amendment. It maintained the timeless definition of natural marriage as between man and wife.
The Bible is clear about sex. The purpose of sex is to produce children - it is not an expression of love (expressions of love are best practiced and demonstrated outside of the bed, not for the short duration while they are in the bed). According the Bible, sex is an obligation of mankind to produce life with the person with whom they are married to (Genesis 1:28).
