More Attacks on Marriage!

In a reflection of the new administration’s acceptance and furthering of the homosexual agenda, President Obama proclaimed the month of June to be LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) pride month in the United States.  According to the President’s press release posted on WhiteHouse.gov, “the principles upon which our Nation was founded” should include equality for the LGBT community, extending to include such laws as hate crimes, civil unions, and rescinding the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.  View the full press release on the WhiteHouse.gov site here.

Also, the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary heard testimony yesterday on how our current immigration standards do not account for American homosexuals whose partners live in other countries and want to move to the U.S.  As it stands, the U.S. does not provide protections for homosexuals whose partners wish to be married and have the same legal rights as immigrants who marry American citizens.  There is now legislation sponsored by 102 Representatives and 17 Senators that would change all that.  If this legislation is passed, it would violate the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) because the federal government would recognize same-sex couples and require all states to do the same.

What do you think about these two issues?  Are they assaults on marriage or do we have to “keep up with the times”?

    What we have to do is stop being so close-minded and bigoted. Yes. Bigoted. Discrimination against the LGBT community (of which, I am not a part but do actively support) is nothing but a form of irrational hatred. It is no more rational or logical than a hatred of epileptic victims, or detestation of red-heads. Two people who love each other should have the right to marry and it appalls me that our government has seen fit to establish laws on both sides of the issue. Marriage should not involve the government. Period.

    I currently subscribe to your newsletter. But, if your short-sided bigotry continues to appear in the newsletter I will unsubscribe and be better for it.

      We believe in free speech rights, including the right to say that we oppose putting into law marriage as defined as anything other than between one man and one woman. Since when is it a “hate crime” to have a difference of opinion? Marriage has always been defined as between one man and one woman. By your standards, it appears you have hatred toward such a well-established institution.

      Also, would you agree, that based on the standard of “two people who love each other should have the right to marry” that a 40-year-old man could marry a 13-year-old girl or that people could have multiple “marriage” partners, or that a sister and brother could marry? Would you be okay with any limits on what two people can marry?

    Marriage has always been intended for the union of a man and a woman.

    Marriage has always been considered a sacred gift to humanity from our creator and ONLY God of the universe YAHWEH.

    Marriage was never meant to be abused, construed, mis-used or changed in any way, shape or form.

    To show the importance of the relationship God has given only to the man/woman……the man/woman are the only human couple that can produce offspring of their own kind naturally.

    Even in the animal kingdom God has given the male/female the ability to produce offspring of their own kind.

    The intentions of our Creator is obvious, the relationship of the male and female is sacred and special and is to be taken serious.

    The male/female relationship and/or marriage is different then any other kind.

    There simply is no comparison!

    NO! We do not have to “keep up with the times”! This is absolutely an assault on marriage. Even if all the states were to make same sex marriage legal, my family will continue to stand and fight against it. We will continue to stand on God’s Word and teach our children His Truths! My family will not compromise our beliefs. God WILL prevail!

    have they lost their minds up in DC or is there something in the air that’s poisoning them? Don’t we have enough AIDS killing our children that we now want to promote death and destruction across the land? I am told I am a hispanic American. I see myself as simply American without focus on my background, but I do find it offensive when the choice to act out perverse actions of adultery, pedophilia, homosexuality, bestiality or any other sexual sin, is somehow promoted as “equal” to what country I come from. These attacks on diversity of culture are going to cause backlash on true promotion of diversity in our great country. They must be stopped.

    One reason most Mulims are sadly attacking America is because we not only are promoting these sexual perversions internally, but we are now exporting them in droves through our media.

    What ever happened to keeping our thoughts pure and to view our fellow man as brother and our women as sisters, Mothers and daugthers? Why is Love being thrown out by government and government is now trying to legislate morality based on hatred of all moral powers for good?

    How sad it is that the line between right and wrong, good and evil, has been so terribly destroyed. Our founding fathers held up God’s Word as a compass to guide them in each and every decision they made for the good of this country. They were men who sought to do God’s will by establishing the laws of this country upon the Word of God. How far this country has fallen from it’s glorious beginning. Isaiah 5:20 says, “Destruction is certain for those who say that evil is good and good is evil; that dark is light and light is dark; that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” I will not compromise my beliefs in what the Word of God says. Society does not set the standard for God’s law. God didn’t mess up when He created man and woman. He did that for a purpose. He told them to be fruitful and multiply. It takes a man and a woman to be able to do that. Marriage between a man and a woman was God’s idea. I will not conform to the world’s idea of what marriage should be or who it should be between. I will continue to teach my children what God says about marriage and that just because society says something doesn’t make it true. Sin distorts the natural way that God created things to be. I pray that we as Christians will step up to the task and continue to stand for what is right. Will we have opposition, you can bet on it. But we have God on our side. His Word will always stand.

    This is disgusting, and not just an assault on marriage, but on Judeo/Christian values. It is a big sign of the apostacy prophesied for the end days. That’s why we have a Gospel armor, because those who keep the faith are sure going to need it.

  7. Esther says:

    I agree with how Terrence Daniels’s tactful statement in what marriage is all about. Requiring us to observe homosexual marriages is an assault because it perverts “the gift” God gave us. God does not hate the person / the sinner or we would all be goners without any ounce of hope. However, he does hate what we do / the sin that goes against his moral laws. He loves us that much to give us those boundaries which keeps us safe from harm. God’s intentions in the definition of marriage, between a man and a wife, is for good and not for harm.

  8. My husband has been in the military 22.5 years. We love our country and we have lived in 4 foreign nations serving.My husband has had 3 combat tours that were very dangerous. However, the current leadership is causing me to question what our nation now stands for. All this push to change our morality into something that greives the God of the Bible very much troubles me. Muslims look at us in disdain as we embrace abhorrent lifestyles. I am fearful what my grandchildren will have forced on them in public schools. What has happened? How did it happen? God help us. Who is the bigger enemy of the USA: terrorists or ourselves?

  9. Irene Wright says:

    Why doesn’t anyone do a study of what happens when a society chooses an aberrant sexual lifestyle? I have seen a report on the Internet done in the 30’s that every civilization since the dawn of history which has adopted an aberrant sexual lifestly disappears in two and all in three generations. Is that what we want for this wonderful land of ours? You know the quote: Does who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

      Recent studies of the devastating effects on homosexuality include those from BMC Psychiatry, the Oxford Internal Journal of Epidemiology, and the Center for Disease Control. Others exist as well. All of these point to the truth of the devastation of homosexuality: physically the act turns off the “light switch” to their body’s immune and endocrine systems; emotionally they become more prone to depression and suicide; and spiritually they defy the will of God for their life.

      I understand that kc above does not to discriminate. However, in speaking out against homosexuality, we do not reject the person but the sinful act. By doing so, we do not discriminate. When a doctor reveals to a patient the function of their body and warns them of practices that could harm themself and others, the doctor does not discriminate. God did that for us, and we merely speak the truth in love.

      The recent statements by the Obama administration do attack the institution of marriage between one man and one women. The institution between one man and one women protects those who enter into it and future generations because of the way God designed us. Every part of us…body, mind, and soul…serves a unique purpose. As the truth remains that people perform many practices which could cause them harm, the practice of homosexuality affects lives in droves.

    The HATE CRIME is being perpetrated onto the American people by Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his crones by forcing [or attempting to] their twisted and unrealistic views onto the masses who have repeatedly voted, and voted, and re-voted, expressing the majority voice that we DO NOT want our moral compass disturbed, distorted or preached against! This religious type of onslaught against all that is good in America can only be determined evil and non American.
