MARRIAGE: God’s definition is the right one

The pre-eminent destroyer of morality and religious freedom is the Supreme Court of the United States.

But I take solace that God stands above the Supreme Court. His opinion on marriage has not changed, nor is he confused in the least simply because judges and lawmakers decide to reinvent and corrupt the gift of marriage into something it cannot be to satisfy the lusts of the amoral.

Homosexual “marriage” is an idea manufactured by mere man, not God. Intentionally raising children without a father and a mother is a human concept, not God’s. That is why opposition to marriage transformation is not about discrimination, but discernment. Not about hatred, but honesty. Not about intolerance, but interest. Not about bigotry, but biology. And certainly not about equality, but effect.

This is why when real marriage supporters wake up in the morning they don’t wonder whether marriage is between a man and a woman, or not. They don’t need the Supreme Court or polls to determine for them whether God’s definition of marriage and the family is the right one, or not.

What an open act of disobedience towards God it is for this nation to put sexual morality and the definition of marriage up to a vote. What idiotic self-destructive human reason to fail to recognize the unique value of the only kind of marriage that provides children with both a father and mother.
