Reading the New York Times this morning I came across this article concerning Brian S. Brown, who along with the National Organization for Marriage is opposing same-sex-marriage before the Supreme Court. “The Supreme Court is considering overturning Proposition 8 and perhaps declare it unconstitutional”, as reported by the New York Times article. According to the article, the Supreme Court will convene on Tuesday of next week to consider the matter.
Now understanding that the Supreme Court of the United States represents all people of the United States and not just one segment of the population, and also that we live in a government where numbers rule; making sure that enough people oppose same-sex-marriage is key to winning this fight.
However, with the advent of television shows, media support, and print ads all seemingly supporting same-sex-marriage; it could be an uphill battle keeping, or honoring marriage between a man and a woman. However, we have a secret weapon: Jesus Christ.
We the Blood washed, Blood bought, Spirit filled, and Spirit lead people of God must stand up against all evil, and that which seeks to oppose God. We must stand in stark opposition of anyone and anything which seeks to change laws and timing to benefit that which God hates. I for one congratulate Brian S. Brown for his continued stance against same-sex-marriage.
The gay community would like you to believe that same-sex anything is accepted by God and natural, however, even nature itself is opposed to same-sex unions. Furthermore, if same-sex-marriage is so natural; why do they need to switch partners to procreate, or adopt to have children? Every species uses the opposite sex to reproduce, or have the ability to reproduce on their own, which is not the case for two men, or two women. However, since the gay community has an answer (false as it may be) for anything which opposes them, I’m sure they will have an answer for this as well.
Let’s not forget that God created one Man and one Woman and called them Husband and Wife. Let’s also not forget that it wasn’t until Satan deceived Eve, and Adam ate the fruit that sin came into the world, and therefore, homosexuality came into the world, lust (for which homosexuality is born) also came into the world. Murder, rape, molestation, anger, vengeance, war, jealousy, pride, hatred, envy, all such sin were birth by one spirit; Satan.
Now some will comment (and some have) that heterosexuals are producing children and mistreating them and this is why gay couples should be able to adopt children. However, two wrongs do not make a right. It is just as wrong for gay couples to adapt children and teach them their ways, as it is for heterosexuals to reproduce and not take care of the children they produce.
Jesus said this about marriage: “Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery” (Luke 16:18). Jesus Himself reiterates marriage between a man and a woman, not between two men, or two women.
Because that many would say that homosexuality is not mentioned in the New Testament of the Bible; below are scriptures which opposes same sex-relations for the New Testament:
1 Corinthians 6:9 –“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind” (men having sex with men).
Romans 1:26 – “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature” (women sleeping with women):
Romans 1:27 – “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet”.
Romans 1:32 – “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them”.
And of course from the Old Testament:
Leviticus 18:22 – “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination”.
If marriage between couples of the same sex should be considered legal and binding, perhaps couples consisting of humans and beasts should be considered for marriage as well (I speak as a fool). As this is also forbidden by the Lord God: “Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion” (Leviticus 18:23).
Marriage is not a covenant made by license from a state, or natural government, but it is a binding, spiritual covenant made by God when He created Man and Woman in the Garden of Eden.
I do not oppose same-sex-marriage simply as a heterosexual, but as an ex-homosexual who have always opposed marriage to the same sex. It is simply foolish and anyone who thinks otherwise is foolish as well.
What? Shall we change laws to benefit every whim of man? Perhaps we should change the law governing murder, rape, theft, and molestation. I mean if we will change the natural course of life to benefit one segment of the population, perhaps we should change them all.
Let each of us who names the name of Christ pray for Mr. Brian S. Brown, that he is successful in his quest to keep marriage sacred between a man and a woman. If any of you can get to Washington next week to lend your support for this fight, I am sure that would be appreciated.
Mr. Brian S. Brown is the president of the National Organization for Marriage. According to the New York Times report; Mr. Brown is concerned about his safety and the safety of those who work with him in this endeavor. Please lend your prayers and support to this very important issue.
