Tuesday, June 06, 2006a little perspective...
With President Bush's latest political move (and believe me, this has nothing to do with faith, and every thing to do with politics), the United States will be considering whether to protect the "traditional" definition of marriage by a constitutional amendment. Why now? Simple. Elections are looming and the Republicans need the "religious right" to come out in full support. Now the President of the United States of America hasn't and most certainly will never come out and admit this, so we are fed some more convenient excuses.
The primary excuse has to do with those dreaded, evil, scheming liberal judges, who, by partisan judgments, judges in the U.S. are continually swinging the doors open to gay marriage. Now I don't dispute this fact. Judges are responsible for bringing the abomination called gay marriage in my country. The problem is, the only reasonable and logical argument to ban gay marriage is an argument no politician, including "Christian-President-Bush", can utter:
"God condemns homosexuality, and all nations that tolerate it."
Liberal judges and politicians are successfully bringing the issue of gay marriage to the forefront because there is ZERO power behind arguments for "the traditional definition of marriage". If you want to argue something of consequence, then it is GOD'S DEFINITION of marriage that we need to consider. If God isn't part of the debate, THERE IS NO DEBATE.
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis 2:24)
That's the definition of marriage. They can change marriage from "traditional" to all manner of modern abomination. My country has proven the point; it won't be long, you'll see legalized polygamy up here. In the end though, God created marriage and the definition is clear and certain. One man, one woman, one flesh. That's it!
If the Word of God has no place in the various endeavours to preserve God's definition of marriage, then I'm not interested in them. Let President Bush and his traditional conservatives fight for their traditions. I contend for the Lord.
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." (Psalm 9:17)
May the Lord have mercy on North America, for it has willfully forgotten God.
