That’s what we’re told every day. If I believe “marriage” is the union between one man and one woman, I’m some kind of fascist who is out to take people’s rights away.
The problem is, that’s a whole lotta bullcrap.
For one thing, marriage has been defined EXACTLY as I define it by pretty much every single civilization that has ever existed. There is NO civilization that has EVER allowed homosexual marriage for its people in HISTORY. So why am I a fascist for holding to a tradition that has accompanied the human race for its entire history rather than the people who are trying to impose a “fundamental transformation” on the entirety of human history up to this point being the fascists?
The entire history of the United States of America from the days when it was a colony to this day records that my views represent America and the views of homosexuals do not represent America. Why is it that those who are trying to force a new definition that is entirely antithetical to the history of this nation not qualify as fascists?
That’s the overarching argument, of course.
It applies right down to the individual. By defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman I am not taking anyone’s “rights” away. Because every single adult American can marry any adult American of the opposite sex who will have him or her. Nobody’s rights have been deprived. We all have the SAME rights as everybody else. And if homosexuals have morally disqualified themselves from wanting to exercise that right is hardly my fault.
If I have the right to marry anybody I choose, then why can’t I marry Aishwarya Rai? Why can’t I can’t marry the woman of my choice?!?! And I’m holding out for her. I’m saving myself for you, Aishwarya! I’ll never marry anyone else if I can’t have YOU until society gives me my rights!!!
Ah, the gay marriage proponent says, but she doesn’t choose you! Well, that sucks. I’ve still been deprived of my right to marry the partner of my choice whether she agrees with that choice or not, the way the left frequently presents their argument, but let’s say that that is the criterion. So what happens if I want to marry two women? What happens if I want to marry a ten year-old boy? And in both cases these marriage partners agree that they would like to marry me too? In the latter case there is at least a tradition called “pederasty” that has FAR more historical support than gay marriage ever has. How are you going to rule gay marriage in and rule pederasty out? There is no question that we are radically redefining society by imposing gay marriage; at least you could point to SOMETHING that once existed with pederasty; it’s been a common if disgusting practice, as opposed to homosexual marriage which is ONLY a disgusting practice. If ten year-olds can choose to have an abortion, as the left insists they should be allowed to do, surely they should be able to choose other sexual behaviors such as marriage. Who are YOU to impose your “outdated morality” and “intolerance” on that ten year-old boy? And those two women – or for that matter those 22 women – are willing adults. If you’re going to accuse me of being “arbitrary” for defining marriage as every civilization has basically defined it and very definitely as Western Civilization and the Bible which undermines that Western Civilization has clearly defined it, how is it not “arbitrary” to categorically state that marriage can only be between two people???
If a woman wants to walk out of her home leading her husband – that is literally a well-hung young STALLION – who the hell are YOU to say that’s wrong? Why do you think you should have the right to impose your narrow-minded intolerant bigotry on that poor woman who only wants to be left alone and live her life with her husband the horse?
The problem is that marriage is either a particular thing, an ordinance under God that every society has recognized, or it is basically whatever the hell you want it to be at any point in the increasing depravitization of our culture until it becomes too toxic to continue to exist and dies out.
There is something that Francis A. Schaeffer described that he labelled “moral velocitization.” It referred to something we are seeing coming at us faster and faster and faster with every passing year.
There was a time not very long ago when NO American president would have celebrated homosexual marriage. If FDR had campaigned on the platform, “I’m going to give you a country in which one man may openly sodomize another man and anybody who doesn’t like it gets denounced!” he would have had his ass thrown out of office. And if you go from George Washington to Bill Clinton, you find that Bill Clinton signed into law something called “the Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA) that defined marriage PRECISELY the way I define it.
It’s not until you get to the forty-forth president, with the previous forty-three all unanimously disagreeing with him, that you get to an endorsement of homosexual marriage. And even THAT president lied and decieved his way into office by categorically stating that:
“I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman.”
If the forty-forth president had said anything different, his skinny little fascist ass would never have sat in the Oval Office.
THAT’S moral velocitization. We go from a moral view that nobody in their right mind believed could have characterized this nation to one that is held by the most dishonest president in our nation’s history – and which by “virtue” of a bait-and-switch has gradually acclimated America to a toxic view that our founders would have decried as genuinely evil.
Let me talk about abortion for a moment; I’ll be back to homosexual marriage.
Since 1973, the Democrat Party and every single person who has voted Democrat have murdered 54,559,615 MILLION innocent human beings and counting since Roe v. Wade (that as of January 23, 2012). We’re talking about a level of homicide that is NINE TIMES WORSE than Adolf Hitler’s Holocaust.
I’ve told more than a few Democrats who call themselves “Christian” that no, you aint: because the Virgin Mary came to you and said, “I’m only thirteen and I’m pregnant. I have no husband and I don’t know what to do.” And you fed her the Democrat Party line and she had an abortion. And so your baby Jesus is dead and He didn’t die for your sins because you killed Him before He had the chance.
You see, the Incarnation and the Baby Jesus is the quintessential proof that life begins at conception and that the Democrat Party is the Party of Demons. That’s why “Democrat” means “Demonic Bureaucrat.” And one day Democrats as individual people will try to use the Nazi Nuremburg Defense and say they weren’t responsible for the consequences of their votes. But God – with the fire of His increasing wrath billowing out from His chariot throne (Daniel 7:9-10) - will point out that with every single vote they as individuals chose more politicians who would appoint more judges who would in turn murder more babies. And this was hardly done without their knowledge and consent.
Now, I bring that up because as godawful and as depraved as abortion is, God says that that isn’t the lowest depths that the Democrats can attain to.
As recorded in Romans 1:18-28:
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
The lowest point a culture can get is not abortion, as hateful and evil as abortion is; it is the moral crime of condoning and in fact honoring and celebrating homosexuality. It is in the Bible in black and white.
I can explain to you why that is. It is because after God created man in His image He said to humanity:
God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” — Genesis 1:28
And from the very outset, from the Tower of Babel on, depraved, sinful, wicked man has had an “alternative” to the plan of the God who created one man for one woman.
It is no surprise that the Democrat Party – the party of genuine evil – would slander and pervert God’s will and plan by endorsing global warming and population controls and the most egregious slap in the face to His will of all: open recognition and celebration of homosexuality.
As declared in the New York Times on July 30, 2012 under the title “Democrats Draft Gay Marriage Platform“:
Democrats appear ready to embrace same-sex marriage as part of their party platform, a policy shift that reflects an expanded acceptance of gay rights in mainstream politics.
The move would place the party in line with the beliefs of President Obama, who in May became the first sitting president to declare that gay men and lesbians should be able to marry.
Democratic Party officials had squabbled over the issue in the past. But at a platform-drafting meeting over the weekend in Minneapolis, they approved the first step to amend their platform, placing the amendment on track for adoption. In two weeks, the entire platform committee will vote at a meeting scheduled in Detroit. Then, if approved as expected, it would go before convention delegates in Charlotte, N.C., for final passage in early September.
According to Democrats who were briefed on the vote in Minneapolis, there was no objection when the issue came up. Though the language that was voted on could still be revised, party officials do not anticipate any major obstacles going forward.
To put it in Chick-Fil-A terms, God’s reality is as simple as this:
That’s what the Bible says. What reality says is that homosexuality is horrible for both society and the homosexuals who are trapped in that vile lifestyle. What reality says is that homosexuality is terrible for the children who are abandoned by the left because of equally vile political correctness. What we find about the “children” of gay parents is that:
Even after including controls for age, race, gender, and things like being bullied as a youth, or the gay-friendliness of the state in which they live, such respondents were more apt to report being unemployed, less healthy, more depressed, more likely to have cheated on a spouse or partner, smoke more pot, had trouble with the law, report more male and female sex partners, more sexual victimization, and were more likely to reflect negatively on their childhood family life, among other things.
Why on earth would anybody want that for children?
Democrats have finally reached rock freaking bottom. They have completed the Book of Romans circle describing a nation that is ready to be judged by God.
“FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; so they are no longer two, but one flesh. — Mark 10:7-8
And that’s why Democrats murdered Him in their moral abortion mill as a Baby while He was still in the womb. Jesus said, “Don’t do it, Democrats!” And Democrats said, “You just go to hell, Jesus.”
And let there be no mistake: if you vote Democrat, that is PRECISELY what you are voting for. Because without your continued support of the Democrat Party, this platform would lead to the ruin of the Democrat Party. But the same godless Democrats who have murdered more than 54 million human beings with your vote are going to take this final step into godless oblivion.
God created man in His image. He holds us morally accountable to the image of Himself in us. You can try to usurp His divine right as Creator, but what you cannot do is avoid ultimate judgment by Him. Which is why the day is coming when every Democrat will stand before God and be held accountable.
