MARRIAGE: Radicals would diminish marriage

An organizer of Olympia’s Capitol City Pride Parade was quoted as saying, “It’s hate that we still have to combat” (TNT, 6-11).

Most know intuitively that something is wrong with the legalization of homosexual “marriage.” Most understand that it is not homosexuality, but marriage, that is under attack.

Christians don’t hate homosexuals. In fact, we are called to treat homosexuals with dignity. But we are also called to oppose, with vigor, the immoral changes homosexuals are demanding imposed on all of society.

The homosexual agenda is the universal acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, to do away with the nonsensical “husband and wife-father and mother” part of marriage and the family. The homosexual agenda is to turn marriage into anything, then everything, and eventually nothing.

Jesus taught that marriage between a man and a woman is a sacrament designed by God that serves as a metaphor for the relationship between Christ and his church. The radical homosexual movement ridicules the time-honored institution and scoffs at the wisdom of the creator.

Homosexual “marriage” will forever change the family. Children will grow up in a sexuality fog as they will be raised to believe that men and women are interchangeable. Children will be raised to believe that marriage is about “tolerance,” that gender is inconsequential, and that it is not to provide children with both a father and a mother in a safe and loving environment.

Countless fatherless and motherless homes will be created on purpose in the name of “equality.”
Is protecting traditional marriage not worth our utmost efforts?
