The Fiction of Same Sex Marriage
Some things just can’t be changed. In nature and science, fire is hot and ice is cold. Wind always blows and the sun always shines. The aforementioned facts are not up for discussion or debate. Facts are facts. There is no movement underway to “redefine” or “better understand” these facts. They are accepted because they are tested by time and have been proven to be true.
With the advent of the destruction of an absolute authority in society (the Bible), has also come a redefining of many things. For instance, gender is up for debate. A “Christian” college some years ago offered three types of housing to its students: male, female, and transgendered housing. The transgendered was for those students who were not sure of their gender. Huhhhh! Without being crass or too improper, there is a real easy way to find out. The answer is so common sense, it does not even need mentioning. This sad event is due to the destruction of absolutes.
The definition of murder was changed years ago when it was given new names such as “choice,” “abortion,” “birth control,” and “freedom,” to name a few. The fact of life beginning at conception used to not even be a question, but an accepted truth.
There are many absolutes in life. Here are some more:
1. Death is the absence of life,
2. A sperm from a male and an egg from a female are required to begin a new life, and
3. Politicians, both Democrat and Republican, will always raise taxes if given one-tenth
of a percent of an opportunity.
Things are not always as they appear. The union of two people of the same sex may appear to some to be a marriage, and it in fact may be a union, but brother, it ain’t a marriage and no amount of name changing, redefining, compassion, or tolerance will change the truth.
And speaking of civil unions, they should not even be allowed. A civil union for “domestic partners” is a mockery of marriage and an endorsement of fornication by “legally” allowing two individuals of the same sex to live together and potentially receive some of the benefits reserved for marriage.
If every court in the land declares a homosexual union to be a marriage, it still will not be marriage. There are certain legal qualifying factors required for a couple to be married, but the foundational requirement of marriage, is a requirement that is moral and common sense: that the candidates be of the opposite sex. And by the way, masculine and feminine roles are even found among homosexuals. Among two lesbians, one tends to be masculine and among homosexual men, one partner tends to be more feminine. Even in a homosexual relationship, an attempt is made to represent the two genders, which validates the common sense fact that a normal relationship requires one of each gender. There is also the common sense fact that homosexuals do not physically “fit” one another, not to mention the emotional misfit.
The recent push for perversion is not just an attack on marriage. It is an attack on God, the creator of marriage. Nevertheless, you better get ready. Buckle your seat belts. This push endorsing homosexual marriage as the real deal will continue to grow as this current administration and politicians eagerly endorse it for votes.
Final thought: If Adam and Steve had been the first couple in the Garden of Eden, none of us would be here today.
