I thought everybody was afraid of "homosexuals preying on our children."However, now that some homosexually gai people are willing to give heterosexuallygai (heterosexual) people what they have always wanted, e.g. "Get the homosoff the streets," heterosexuals worship on the alter of semantics and say,"No! The word 'marriage' is too sacred and holy!" Damn, if heterosexuallygai people are so hung up on words verses conduct, call it something elsecall it pair bonding, gai lifetime bonding or wagon wheel. Hell, thereis nothing sacred about a two bit word -- or is it a four bit word? Howabout 6 bits? Do I hear 8?. Man's conduct towards his fellowman is however,in the Catholics terminology, a Cardinal Sin, a gross violation of thelaws of God for which Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed (see discoursesentitled Genesis 2:24, King Constantine, The 13th Apostle and The Sin ofSodom & Gomorrah).
Heterosexually gai people aren't fooling God. By their inner most thoughtswhich God is privy to, heterosexually gai people have had a long standinganimosity towards homosexually gai people for simply daring to reach outand grasp a freedom and right they themselves want to enjoy but are tooafraid!
First, if homosexuality is really so detestable and despicable,why would anyone care. Wouldn't any rational, thinking individual, childthough he or she may be, be able to detect the vileness of an act? Howmany beatings does a child have to receive from an abusive parent to realizehow gross, vile and painful it is?
Secondly, for years, my parents were concerned about us beingout after dark or later at night for fear that a homosexual would preyon us. I realize that now society is more concerned with guns killing theirchildren, not only after dark but all throughout the day. My parents andtheir friends used to rant and rave about how unstable homosexuals wereand that anyone succumbing to that lifestyle would never amount to anything.My parents said those people who couldn't be tamed and they were slavesto their wanton sexual passions and desires. Listening to my parents talk,marriage is an unnatural lifestyle or condition to which no true homosexualor gai person would allow themselves to be subjected.
How that gay people are trying to form stable cohesive relationships,not only to care for each other but also for a growing number of homosexualfamilies with children, society says, "NO!" The institution of marriageis too sacred and holy...!" Sacred. What is so damn sacred about a wordor concept. There is only one word in any language that is sacred and manhas already bastardized it and uses it as a cuss word.
Nothing in the human experience is any more sacred and holy than therights of every human him or herself. Absolutely, nothing at all is sacredexcept the words and names of God, Jesus Christ, Allah, Jehovah, Buddha,Eloheim!
What is so sacred or holy about the word marriage? We already bastardizethe word "marriage" when we use it to say, 'Two companies married!' DanQuayle did another "Dan Quayle potatoe" faux pas when he said he was opposedto gay marriages because, "They can't procreate." Since when was that evera criteria for human rights. To corporations can't procreate or can they?There are millions of heterosexually married couples who "refuse" to procreate.There are millions of babies born each year to victims or participantsof incest! Does Mr. Quayle endorse and sanction incestuous marriages --regardless of the ages of the participants -- because it leads to procreation?
If the word "marriage" is an idolatrous concept for Christians chooseanother word like "bonding." Two people of either gender that form a pairbond for peace, love and security of that family unit are indeed mutual"spouses." Love is the basis of any family unit.
Forget about what other countries do! America was established by Godto be a model and the vanguard for human rights for everybody on the facedof the earth. Through American leadership, every other nation that recognizeshuman rights and the worth of the individual will be bless, exceedingly.Is America abdicating its role and responsibility as established by God?
18 ¶ ... [It is] not good that the man should be alone;
In Timothy 4:1-4 we also read that Paul was admonishing and warningthe saints, that in the last days, people would forbid others to marry,(Warning: watch out people, you're treading on thin ice!)
1 ¶ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the lattertimes some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits,and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with ahot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, whichGod hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believeand know the truth.
4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, ifit be received with thanksgiving:
The full faith and credibility of the United States of America inrecognizing and honoring the full human rights and responsibilities ofevery individual, it is also the very basis of the freedom ofchoice endowed every living human being on the face of the earth, bynone other than God Himself!
It is everyone's right to marry whomever they choose. Christsaid, "Whatsoever God has joined together, let no man put asunder." Christdid not say, "Whatsoever God has joined together heterosexually,let no man put asunder." All America can do is recognize two people's unionlegally. God already recognizes pure intent of the individuals. "Man looksupon the outward appearance of man but God looks upon the heart."
Speaking of legal recognition which is the only providence of government,heterosexually married are guaranteed many facets of life simply becausethey are "married." I'm not a legal scholar so I can't speak to the issuefully. I was called in these days, simply because of the growing numberof people, and people problems.
Back to the issue of the law, legally "heterosexually" married couples-- whether or not their hearts are sincere, a requirement to be recognizedby God -- have the power of attorney and able to visit and care for a sickloved one in the hospital however, individuals of gay marriages not legallyrecognized by governments, are greatly restricted access if not also prohibitedentirely. There are numerous benefits a hospital extends to a "marriedindividual" that it refuses to spouses of gay marriages. Then there aresurvivors benefits. The home they shared for 30 years, if they weren'tsmart enough to protect the assets of the marriage, good 'old' benevolentUncle Sam confiscates everything. Then there is the subject of the childrenof the dying spouse. If they are not old enough to assume the full rightsand responsibilities of an adult citizen, the family is broken up and thechildren farmed out to other families. The horror stories would make anysane person cringe with disgust and indignation and demand more human treatmentof every citizen. In the end, that will determine to quality ofa government, e.g. how fully do they recognize the human rights of eachand every one of God's children and how well do they protect those rights!
The latest polls says that 70% of Americans feel that everyone shouldhave the same rights, whether heterosexual or homosexual. But their cognitivelogic fails when only 38% of Americans feel that gay people's marriagesshould be legally recognized. God already recognizes a marriage commitmentof the heart regardless of the gender of the participants, however, belowis an itemization of benefits which God says should be legally extendedto all.
Rep. Steve Largent said that the definition of marriage being one woman,one man is tradition. People, for God's sake, forget about tradition! Thislife is to progress (change), not adhere to tradition. If God wanted mankindto follow the traditions of their forefathers, Steve Largent would neverhave played football nor become a representative of the people of Louisiana.Steve Largent would have been a camel jockey herding sheep somewhere inthe middle east, child labor would still be the status quo, children wouldcontinue to be exploited sexually and physically, women would not be allowedto go to school but would have to stay home, keep quiet and stay pregnant,men would continue to sexually chase after and impregnate whoever theywanted without legal repercussions. Government were established by Godto advance, guarantee and protect the rights of its people.
