I hope this got your attention. After all a lot of so called Christians today are defending the right of same sex couples to get married. There is even a church that has gone as far as to refuse all weddings until such a point where they can perform same sex marriages as well as hetero sexual ones.
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments as to whether or not they should rule on the constitutionality of laws such as DOMA, and California's Proposition 8. Both cases are clearly areas in which the people ruled against same sex marriage and then government ruled against the acts. With DOMA, Obama has chosen not to defend the law. A violation of his oath, the picking and choosing of laws in which to enforce. In Proposition 8, the Federal courts struck down the proposition after it was passed by a majority of people.
My opinion on this is that Marriage was an institution created by God. It was for creating children and for propogating the race. It was not so two people could get benefits for the other. Marriage is a serious thing. The idea that you are going to stay with that person until death is a hard thing for many to swallow. When one gets married, there is intimecy which many times leads to children. Those children need to be raised and that requires a team effort. Traditionally, the man goes out and earns a living, job, business, hunting etc, while the woman stays home keeps the house and raises the children. The institution was first attacked by Woman's lib, when the woman wanted to go and work next to men. Can a woman do a better job then a man a certain jobs. Absolutely, she can. Many of the best managers I know are woman. That is why they were the ones several generations ago managing the house. A man can do one thing and do it better then a woman. A woman can perform many task well at the same time. Most who cook at home are woman but the best chef's in the world are men. Just a fact.
I am not sure where the idea of granting a license first came about. You get a room of six single men and six single woman together. It won't be long, if they are normal before they are pairing off. In ancient times, they just start a family and go from there. Eventually elaborate ceremonies were developed around the pairing off. The church got involved when they decided that God needed to enforce the vows they make to each other. Roman priest were brought in and now the institution belonged to the church. Eventually the state wanted their piece of the pie and a marriage license was invented. Employers wanted to give workers benefits but since the wife didn't work and was at home with the children, the employer was generous and extended those benefits to the family at home that was not able to work yet. Now with same sex marriage, those benefits would extend to same sex partners.
Here is the crux. when there are no children at home, both can get a job. Same sex couples generally make more money then hetero sexual couples. Therefore both can get benefits from their individual jobs. So why are they asking for the right to marry? I think the plot is more sinister then that. Like I said before it is an attack on Marriage. It is an attack on family. These attacks have been going on now for a long time. First it was the woman's rights. Then it was Abortion. Where we are killing off the next generation. Now it is homosexual marriage. We have always had wars that decimated the family. We are not looking at worse.
Paul, in 2 Timothy3:1 says that in the last days, perilous times will come. I think to day is very perilous. He has a long list of sins that One of with is without natural affection. Today's christian church is switching to pro homosexual agenda. I want to know who is not reading their Bible but merely following the whims of man. With the outrage in the social media, I can definitely say this scripture is being fulfilled. God help this country. Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because God could not find 10 righteous people. Since Lot was not pure himself, Amman and Moab, who should have been friends with Israel became a thorn in the flesh. Read the story of the Angel of the Lord's visit to Sodom. Ask yourself if that is not how today's homosexual acts. Then ask yourself. Are we headed to the same destruction in America.
