I’m sickened by the new law in NY for gay marriage. Five other states and DC have gay marriage but with gay marriage in New York it feels as if we are firmly on the downhill slide of that slippery slope of redefining marriage for the few.
What I do know is that this has been coming for a very long time while Christians of all stripes have chosen not to fight. I think the gays have won. They are not right, they are legislating immoral behavior. But it appears they have won….through deception and the power of the state.
Marriage is God-ordained and between a man and woman. The state sanction of “gay marriage” is not about civil rights, but about creating new rights. Eventually, I have no doubt, that it will mean the disintegration of religious rights….particularly of those individuals who perform the marriages…but really the rights of all Christians who understand that homosexuality is a sin. Christians understand the struggle of homosexuals and are taught to be kind….but it is not biblical and it is un-Christian to embrace the behavior. I fear that through the courts and the long-term view of the homosexual lobby (the view of crushing a moral society) we will see courts forcing Christians to accept this behavior and require pastors, business people of conscience, and more to teach, perform and embrace what they personally deem as an abomination. Sad.
Ultimately, this passage in New York will lead to lawsuits that are focused on FORCING gay marriage in all states through the courts….mark my words.
And, I might add, this is not just about the religious aspects of marriage, but about the breaking down of Western civilization. Marriage is a bedrock institution of the continuity and success of Western culture.
Yes, marriage has taken a beating in our culture lately, but the decline of morality in marital issues in this country should not lead to the complete obliteration of marriage…..which will happen with so-called gay marriage.
Further, a free society (one out from under the thumb of state) only sustains itself under a moral society. It is my belief and the belief of others that the so-called gay marriage agenda is an intentional direct hit to our moral society in an effort to make the state bigger and freedom smaller….at least this is the goal of some in power.
Ace of Spades has a great review and thoughts on the subject. I highly encourage you to read at the link.
