Muslims are exempted - of course
Homosexual marriage. The whole idea is ridiculous on its face. Within 5-10 years this nonsense will be reversed...if there is an American left to stop it by then.
Reject the language. Reject the very premise, “gay marriage”-— doesn’t exist. Marriage is defined as man and woman. What is the candy a$$ libbie lightweights definition of marriage? 3 gals/2 guys, father/daughter, etc, etc..???? I’ve yet to hear an answer in person. Lapdog lemming cowards who accept everything from a kool-aid propaganda ministry. Then we hear, despite biology of reproductive organs, that “Chaz” Bono is now a man. Lies to be rejected at their face with no compromise.
We all know where this is going. The sodomite scum want affirmation for a perverse guilt ridden lifestyle and will attempt like in Canada and England to criminalize all speech against the queers. So more tyranny and we’re back to guns again. Which is why ammo is still wiped out.
Obama said this is not a Christian nation. He intends to make that so. Christians must fight it.
If I were a member of the American Left, I’d be laughing and crapping on everyone too.
No one anywhere is stopping them.
Ironically, in so doing the Commission broke the law:
Art I, Sec. 11. [Freedom of religion.]
Every man shall be free to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and no person shall ever be molested or denied any civil or political right or privilege on account of his religious opinion or mode of religious worship. No person shall be required to attend any place of worship or support any religious sect or denomination; nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.
This will be the last straw.
Last week’s abominable SC decision was as good as an ENDA being passed, as the upshot of Kennedy’s statements will be used as the “marital status” part of federal non-discrimination laws nationwide. And when they are hired, they will further reference this court decision to force employers nationwide to provide the same insurance coverage and other employer provided services to their “spouses” even when the state forbids such unions be recognized for such purposes.
My best friend’s husband is the pastor of a fundamental Baptist church in California. They’re terrified that he’ll be asked to perform a same-sex marriage. There is no way he’d agree to it, and could be taken to court. He would change careers before doing that ceremony.
God invented marriage, not man. God designated marriage, not as a contractual agreement, but as a covenant. Governments may be able to regulate contracts, but a covenant is based on the laws of God and not man. Thus marriage is an institution outside of the bounds of government.
Government was happy to intrude into the marriage because when we gave tax exemptions based on marital status, or when we taxed a persons estate upon their death, or when the State stepped in to direct the disposition of an estate, or when we used the State to enforce marital fidelity or grant divorces, we had to allow the State to define who was married and who was not.
As with all things Statist, the secular States definition of marriage and divorce has come to have more weight in society than Gods definition.
God defines marriage as being between men and women. While many men whom God called righteous in the Bible practiced polygamy, Jesus is quoted in Matthew chapter 19 that from the beginning of humanity, it was Gods intent that marriage would only be one man and one woman. In Mark chapter 10, Jesus stated that God, not man, joins the husband and wife and the two are “one flesh”, an act that by its very nature is only heterosexual.
God defines sexual relations between people of the same sex as against His law, that is immoral. In Revelation 22:15, a book dictated to John by Jesus, God tells us that anyone who practices sexual immorality will not be granted eternal life.
These are ecclesiastical considerations that are outside of secular government, that is unless we want government to police sexual behavior between consenting adults based on the standards of the Bible, assuming we can agree what those are. Do we want Congress to have that debate?
Maybe it is time to get government out of the marriage business and to return it to the private sphere. The problem for me today is that people who want to call themselves married against Gods law (as I read it) are willing to use the State to force me to recognize that marriage, which I cannot do. The want to have the States public education system indoctrinate my children that homosexual marriage is normal. They want to force me to subsidize the homosexual marriage in the tax code just like the godly marriage is subsidized, and they will use state agencies to punish me for “discrimination” if I decline to accept their status in any way.
If the State must force me to acknowledge its power to declare two men to be “married”, then I must support efforts to remove that power from the State. If people who don’t want God defining their personal morality demand a separation of church and State then let us also have separation of marriage and State as well. If those people don’t want any displays of the Ten Commandments in government buildings, they cannot hide behind the Commandments that protect marriage when it comes marriage that God cannot sanction.
“You’re allowed to be religious, of course, but only on the Sabbath. If you dare step into the world of commerce or public service, the government will impose its morality on you.”
In Missouri, until the 1970’s, the State restricted what retail shops could be open and what they could sell on Sunday. These laws came to be called “Blue Laws”. The State still has a single Blew Law left: auto dealers must be closed on Sunday.
So even on the “Sabbath”, government imposes its morality on you, especially if you keep the same Sabbath that Jesus kept and would close your business on Saturday. The State would still insist that you need to keep the day it insists you must rest on.
Revolt is coming.
will NOT back down. They’ll have to jail or kill me.

Today's talk of tolerance and acceptance of gay marriage will soon give way to intolerance and rejection of those who hold a traditional view of marriage.
"Will soon give way"?? Where this writer been? Homo activists have been attacking those who hold a traditional aka "real" view of marriage for a long, long time. It's just going to get much worse now.
Anyone wanting on/off any of my ping lists, freepmail me.
