New York just recently passed a same-sex marriage bill that was signed into law by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. What New York and six other states don't seem to realize is God's Law does not change as the laws of man do. I wish the Legislature would have reviewed the story of Sodom and Gomorrah before they decided to seal the fate of the Empire State.
When I recent voice my sincere opposition to same sex marriage I was labeled a "hater". Hate has nothing to do with it. It quite the opposite.
The Homosexual community lives a life that is different from the usual or conventional, established cultural, social and (may I add) religious system in our nation. It is a free country so while I disagree with living life in that manner, so be it.
So why am I opposed to same sex "marriage"? We as a nation are being forced not only to accept immoral behavior but condone, support, approved, glorify and yes even teach it to our children.
Not only is they a civil rights cry but far more. Gay couples want the same rights and privileges that apply to a married can and women. If they want to choose to live in direct opposition to what scripture teaches that is up to them, that is their "choice" but don't make the rest of us accomplices.
Just this morning I saw on TV a parade of perversion celebrating the New York law and the chant of "on to the next state". What I oppose is their aggressive and hostile approach in imposing their choice on the rest of us, especially our children! If they want free choice "go for it" but, please allow the rest of us (usual, conventional, tradition, those who live in established cultural, social and religious systems) to also have the choice to decide what we will teach our children and don't force us to conform to their alternative way of thinking and living!
My objections are not in any way based on hate but on the Word if God. Whether or not you believe in God is irrelevant. You see Gods law applies to you even if you don't believe. Ask the Sodom and Gomorrah folks.
Genesis chapter 19 records the two angels, disguised as human men, visiting Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot met the angels in the city square and urged them to stay at his house. The angels agreed. The Bible then informs us, "Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom — both young and old — surrounded the house. They called to Lot, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.'" The angels then proceed to blind all the men of Sodom and Gomorrah and urge Lot and his family to flee from the cities to escape the wrath that God was about to deliver. Lot and his family flee the city, and then "the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah — from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities..."
The militant homosexual activists have surrounded the doors of our courthouses, legislatures, networks, schoolhouses, neighborhoods, churches, and our homes demanding to have their way, just like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Clearly, homosexuality was part of why God destroyed the two cities. The wrath fell on all those in the cities.
It should be clearly understood that all God fearing people must be opposed to homosexuality and same sex marriage for the sake of the homosexual. We must be like Abraham and plead for our nation as he did for Lot and his family.
