May I highly recommend the Boys’ Brigade?

Is the Supreme Court Ruling on “Same Sex Marriage” a Gift From God?

July 8th, 2015 Viewed 842 times

Conservatives and Republicans should welcome today’s Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges [text] which recognizes same-sex marriage as a “right,” and thus, under the 14th Amendment, applicable against the states. They should thank God for the blessing of being freed from the shackles of government, but only if they plan to act on this Divine opportunity.

Our gratitude is for a kick in the pants from God, though it be delivered by the boot of a heathen court. Perhaps it will finally spark us to reclaim our heritage of individual rights.

Adoption has been around a long time, but with the modern era, test tube babies, IVF and now same sex couples, the lines of what constitutes a parent are getting twisted even further.

They Don’t Believe It’s Not a Big Deal

The same sex marriage proponents would have you believe that it’s not that big of a deal that same sex couples are given the permission to enter into a “marriage” relationship.

One of the arguments is “it won’t affect your marriage.”  The reasoning follows the line that each person must enter the relationship themselves, and what others choose to do has no bearing on what you have chosen to do.

And it goes further to say that traditionally married couples have done more to harm marriage with divorce, annulments, etc., than permitting same-sex couples to enter into a marriage will ever do.

Let’s unpack these arguments, shall we?

This week will mark the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell for the military.  A few months ago, New York State became the largest state to accept homosexual partners in “marriage”.  Many people may say “So what?  How does it affect you?”

Truth be told, the immediate effects of these rulings will not be see, because the acceptance of a homosexual lifestyle is not the problem, but a symptom.

Kody Brown has 4 wives—well, technically, his legal wife is the one in the black top, the rest are “sister wives”.  They, and their sixteen children, appear on “Sister Wives” on TLC.  Why is this interesting?  Because they are attacking Utah’s anti-polygamy laws based on the fact that they should be able to define “family” any way they want.

Oh, and this is the same line of argument that same sex marriage proponents use to defend same-sex marriage:

US Supreme Court on Religion and Marriage

June 16th, 2010 Viewed 1679 times

AncientWe live in a very interesting time—a time when the very moral foundation of this country is being challenged.  The general American feeling of “live and let live” has come directly up against a culture and morality that would have been foreign to the founders—and those very founders are being trotted out as accepting and perhaps even promoting such changes.

This should not be so.

You Must Promote My Lifestyle

Constance McMillen is a homosexual.  She is also a senior in a public high school in Mississippi, and as such she was looking forward to her senior prom.  She wanted to bring a date, and because of her lifestyle, she wanted to bring another young lady and she wanted to wear a tuxedo instead of wearing a prom gown.

She claimed that all she wanted was the rights that all of her heterosexual classmates had, and it touches on the very problem Christians have with the gay rights movement.
