On Monday, the Supreme Court turned down five state appeals that sought to prohibit sodomite “marriage.” The obvious question that should be asked is why the states appeal to the federal court in the first place. After all, marriage is none of their business.
Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin all appealed to the United States Supreme Court to let them have a ban on redefining marriage. The question I have is, why?
First and foremost, as I wrote here, there is only one definition of marriage and it’s a Biblical one. Second, the federal government was never given authority in this area by the states in the first place. So again, I ask why?
It’s because these states don’t have competent governors in office that will simply tell the Supreme Court where they can go and then implement the law in their state against sodomite “marriages.” Personally, I’d like to see them implement legislation against sodomy and then they wouldn’t be dealing with this nonsense of redefining marriage. And yes, I have no problem with dealing with sodomy permanently as the Bible tells us how to deal with it. If sodomites won’t repent, then justice should be served upon them, not give them special rights and treat them as a specially protected class of citizens.
This is akin to giving the murderer, the rapist, the kidnapper and various other criminals (who should face capital punishment under biblical law) special rights and status in the society. How well do you think that would work out? It wouldn’t work out and neither will this.
In fact, doing this right in the middle of the Communist plans to destroy America. According to the 45 Goals for the Communist Takeover of America that were entered into the Congressional record and enumerated in Cleon Skousen’s book The Naked Communist:
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
Friends, there is nothing “normal, natural, or healthy” about homosexuality. The fact that even godless, anti-theistic Communists say that it must be “presented” this way tells you that they know it is the exact opposite.
However, where is the outcry of the professed Church in America? Oh I know, she is busy saying that we shouldn’t throw stones or that we shouldn’t judge lest we be judged. Those are excuses for cowards who are unwilling to offend sinners, but instead choose to offend God.
It’s high time the Church grew a spine, understood what the Word of God said and proclaimed it unedited to sinners in need of a Savior from sin. Additionally, it’s time that we also tell our state legislatures and governors to ignore the Supreme Court when it rules in an area it shouldn’t be ruling and instead, as ministers of God (Rom.13), punish the evildoer justly. Make the Supreme Court enforce their ruling and if they think they can do it, we must be prepared to back up our state representatives.
As Edmund Burke famously said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
America, it’s time to stop doing nothing.
