Skip to comments.Homosexual "marriage" is not a natural right

One of the fundamental truths about the founding tenets of this nation is that our ordering principles the basis of our laws, our conception of rights, the purposes to which government is supposed to obtain are built upon the acknowledgement of and respect for natural law. Natural law presupposes that there are absolute standards of right and wrong, and carries with it the necessary understanding that this natural law, far from being the product of random happenstance or social consensus, is instead instituted by the Divine authority of a Creator God who formed the world in which we live, and who ordered its function along certain design that operate at all times. The analog to this in human civilization is that if society is to be in accord with natural law and its Creator, then society must recognize and order itself along lines that are in accord with the character and nature of the Creator and the "design features" He has inserted into His handiwork, and which are further accessible through the reasoned and reasonable revelation that He has given to us, specifically in the Judeo-Christian scriptures.
This nation was indubitably founded upon such an understanding. It is apparent in the very Declaration of our independence from Great Britain, in which it was declared that our separation from England and our taking our place among the nations of the world as an independent and equal participant were in accord with the laws of nature and nature's God. The further declaration, framed as a proposition of fact, that all men are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights further demonstrates that even at the inception of this nation, respect for the order established by God was foundational to what our nation's political and social system were intended to be.

Its not natural for Islam either so it has nothing to do with our countries laws.
It is about 6,000 years of modern recorded history of mankind and what it has found of value when creating a society.
Homosexuality is a corruption of natural sexuality. It is obvious as to the purpose and design of sexuality and that homosexuality is a perversion of this purpose and design. To have government force people to accept perversion and corruption is evil and is a crime, not a right.
Great work, as always, sir!
Libertarians argue that we can’t define marriage because any definition moves us down a “slippery slope” toward undue interference with personal freedoms.
Bunk. Governments have been defining marriage for thousands of years; and before organized governments existed, marriage was defined by tribal chiefs, families, religious leaders, etc. Were our founding fathers so worried about the slippery slope that they would have supported today’s anything-goes rules?
You have a huge “amen” on that from me. Well said.
Exactly. The dirty little secret is that our Founders - even Jefferson - were NOT libertarians.
An outstanding essay!
The untenable tenet:
Given: Natural biological plumbing:
Given: Gays have parents.
Given: Gays cannot be biological parents by themselves as a pair.
But heterosexual parents have gays.
Ergo heterosexual Parenting is superior to gay, because the former produces the latter;
the latter cannot produce the former.
Ergo gays are dependent upon the heterosexual mode, i.e., the heterosexual marriage.
Gay mode is dependent upon heterosexual mode for existence.
Ergo, the former and the latter cannot be equal, since one is superior to the other.
Heterosexual marriage is superior to ``gay marriage``.
Therefore ``gay`` is inferior to heterosexual marriage since the ``gay`` mode is dependent upon, and issues from, the heterosexual marriage.
Ergo the term ``gay marriage`` is a contradiction in terms because it usurps the meaning, definition, function of marriage , and falsely acribes to it the fullness of meaning thereof;
e.g.,redefining gray as black or redefining gray as white.
reductio as absurdam
It is a false tenet.
Ergo ``gay marriage`` is a living lie.
It's a form of psudo-masterbation. They get bored with themselves, and seek out other "selves." This is why they're so self absorbed.
Some go back to their childhood selves and seek out other peoples children for relief.

I think the guy who wrote is a RINO, though.
Longevity does NOT make it normal.
I don't care if ANIMALS engage in it.
Human beings are NOT “animals” and have a HIGHER INTELLIGENCE. Sorry ... evilutionalists. Your ancestor can be an “ape” but I am designed by God and in His image. He is certainly no “ape”. No society in the history of the world has been bettered by homosexuality. Homosexuality ALWAYS, yes ALWAYS destroys and brings a society to it's knees. Just look at the Roman Empire if the Bible scares you and you wish to be an agnostic or an atheist. Look at SECULAR history.
Not only is it not a right, but it is another tool to destroy the sanctity of marriage and the family! God made men for women. He made men women for men! The world is full of perversions, and they are very sad, but God wanted His children to have one another in order to multiply, and there is no future in same sex marriage! In fact twenty years ago it would never have been passed into law! That is how far we have fallen, led by the evil Left.
I say this about few writings, but this piece is definitive.
Unisex marriage is no more a possiblity than square circles. (A unisex marriage license? May as well pick up your unicorn license while you’re there.)
It’s discouraging to see this author debating over whether there is a natural right to be joined in matrimony with someone to whom it’s impossible to be joined. Engaging in such a debate concedes so much ground to our opponents that we may as well retire from the field altogether.
We talk of “traditional marriage” - as though there were different kinds of marriage and we happen to prefer the traditional one. Now we talk about whether America’s founding principles “permit” pseudo-marriage.
Our opponent need only reject America’s founding principles (not uncommon these days!) and he’s free to make marriage into whatever he wants. That’s the weakness in this line of argument, and it’s a severe one.
They don't. Neither do bacteria, fungi, plants, or insects. The universe isn't designed for homosexuals. To nature, homosexuals are a disease. The word "Abomination" is a good way to describe it.
