Marriage Equality



” Here I Stand......I Can Do No Other. So Help Me God.”........

These were the famous words of Dr Martin Luther the great Reformer of the 15th Century. It was at such a time as this,” when basic Biblical Precepts were totally discarded and those in high places were actually selling license to Sin”. The big difference today however, is that these licenses are written as part of a political agenda, wrapped in red, white and blue and marketed as Gay Pride; with special discounts and promotions going on now and continuing until November 2012

I am committed with every ounce of resiliency to continue to declare that “The Word of God” still stands true. Marriage is, was and always will be, the Holy Union of one Man and one Woman. It is likened unto the mystical union of Christ and his bride “The Church”. Ephesians 5:21-32. No Act of any Congress can alter it. “We can do nothing against the truth only for the truth. Heaven and Earth may pass away but the word of God will stand forever: Forever oh God, thy Word is settled in Heaven.” God is still in control.


All of my life, some 50 odd years, I have always known a husband to be a man and a wife to be a woman. I have never had to consult a dictionary, the Web, or even ask anyone: All around me, my home, neighborhood, school, and my church, in Government, the President and First Lady. Everywhere without question or debate there were men and there were women. Men stood boldly in their Place as Mr. … the husband of; and women very proudly wore their Mrs. the wife of. There were no questions as to, who is the wife or who is the husband.

But, there is a new wave sweeping across our nation, a lot more men are braiding their hair, wearing tight fitting clothes, and ear-piercing with multiple rings. Likewise many more women are visiting the Barber shop and turning towards the new trend of masculine sexuality among women. The impact of this trend is such that it’s sometimes difficult to tell whether you are looking at a man or a woman. This trend, coupled with the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transvestite community is the sociologically complex future of our nation. Can you imagine a modern day America with an open Transvestite as Mr. and/or Mrs. President?


Have we as a nation, become so technologically advanced that we can now eliminate the very foundation on which our civilization has been built? There is nothing more stupendously absurd, as to consider that in this 21st century a wife is in fact, another man, and a husband is also another woman. Am I to understand that our national leaders expect me: A baby boomer, hooked on phonics, to accept this new trend and discard my half century of learning so as to be up- to -date with this so called modern Era.


The word gay once meant, happy or joyous. Today it is synonymous with homosexuality.
A man having sex with another man was in fact a secret shame, today our consciences have become so seared that the abominable has now become our pride.
The deceitful actions of a cheating spouse, is frowned on as infidelity. But, in the Gay community, it’s called open-mindedness.

There can be no equality in Same Sex Marriage and Marriage as ordained by the Creator. God calls one Honorable and the other he calls an Abomination. Hebrews13:8. Leviticus18:22.

In a same sex marriage ceremony the official says I now pronounce you husband and husband or wife and wife. In seeking benefits as a wife in a two male partner relationship, how do you define the wife? When the person you are referring to, is actually a man. Also, if at the ceremony they were pronounced as husband and husband. How do you claim benefits as a wife when you are a husband?

In the two women relationship, how do you claim benefits as a wife when you have wife? If you are not the wife in the relationship how do you claim benefits as the husband when you are also a wife?

In times past, every young man’s ambition was to marry a beautiful Princess the girl of his dreams. Every young girl’s desire was to marry her knight in shining armor. Our society today is greatly affected by a climate of such gross darkness; that a man leaving the natural beauty of a woman burns in his lust for another man and likewise the woman abandoning her natural desire for a man burns in her lust for another woman. Committing acts which is against nature. Romans 1:26-32

Even In the animal kingdom the family structure is made up of a male and female. If we can't understand these basics at post graduate level, then it truly justifies the evolutionary theory now being propagated; that, there could in fact be Marriage Equality with Same Sex relationships. Dogs and cats do not practice same sex relationships, as a matter of fact Monkeys don't practice same sex relationships either; but College Grads., Clergymen and women, State Senators, Governors, businessmen, pan-sexual legislators…... they all see homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle. Are we smarter than a 5th grader? No, the real question is: Are we smarter than a monkey? Let us put away all the foolish debating over such an elementary subject. What does the Bible say?!


Call this hate speech if you wish but the facts are very simple and quite logical. We can pretend to be blind all we want but, I'm sure we can all hear the sound of the locomotive coming down these tracks. Some time back in 1958. Arthur Schlesinger Jr. wrote an essay on “The Crisis of American Masculinity” The Politics of Hope: And, The Bitter Heritage: American ... - Page 292 - Google Books Result In it he asked: “WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE AMERICAN MALE? For a long time he seemed utterly confident in his manhood, sure of his masculine role in society, easy and defined in his sense of sexual identity. They were men, and it did not occur to them to think twice about it.

Even well into the twentieth century.......... but one begins to detect a new theme emerging; the theme of the male hero increasingly preoccupied with proving his virility to himself... And by mid- century, the male role had plainly lost its’ rugged clarity of outline.

Today, men are more and more conscious of maleness not as a fact but as a problem.
The ways by which American men affirm their masculinity are uncertain and obscure. There are multiplying signs, indeed, that something has gone badly wrong with the American male's conception of himself.”

This was in the year 1958. Here we are some 55 years later and while we seem to have made remarkable progress in so many other areas, we have in fact become degenerates as humans with regards to discipline and Morality.

How is a man marrying a man, equal to a man marrying a woman? There is no way any society should tolerate such behavior especially at a national level. If a man or a woman wants to dishonor their bodies in homosexual relations then that’s their private business. But, to ask the public to accept such a lifestyle in equal standing as that of a traditional marriage is totally ridiculous. It is an insult to our Creator and to every right way. We may as well veto the laws that say’s “Thou shalt not kill” or “Thou shalt not steal”. Let Anarchy reign.


The whole rotten agenda of the proponents of this derogatory subject is that with Marriage Equality, a married man can still have a male partner and likewise the married Woman; she too can have a female partner. Also, with this New – age mindset there are no limits to the number of partners, individually or in groups.

In a recent article by: Stacey Nelkin: Open-Minded About Open Marriage
www.huffingtonpost.com/.../openminded-about-open-marriage_

She indicated that couples should be open minded about open marriage. The question then becomes, how open is being open- minded? Well let's see; to-night we invite the friendly, next door neighbors over to share our bed. On tomorrow we invite the other mixed couple, across the street, to add some variety. By the week’s end, let’s have an open house; the public is invited, come- one come-all, open your minds, free yourself from all inhibitions. Bring your dogs, cats, or whatever is your freak. Bring in the donkeys or how about an elephant. Free your minds. Should the children join the party, oh no little Bobby is only six years old. Go to your room son, OK mom. “Aaahhh, mom can I then have some of MY friends over? We can have our own party.” ...


There are certain Biblical Precepts that were ordained to transcend time and generations. These age old principles are those that have in fact shaped our communities, our cultures, our traditions, our nations and our world. Diverse as we are: In languages, customs, and heritage, yet the family structure is common amongst us all: A man, his wife, and the children.
