With all the terrible, anti-America, anti-Constitution news that emanates daily from the current communist regime in Washington, it is quite refreshing and uplifting to see some good news for a change. On Tuesday, a victory for marriage was won in North Carolina, with over sixty percent of voters approving a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and prohibiting state and local governments from recognizing unmarried couples.
The consensus continues. Everywhere this issue is put to a vote by the people, marriage is upheld. North Carolina brings the total to 31 states to have done this. It is a small, but vocal, minority that demands a perverse, impossible definition of marriage be recognized. But, that is no marriage at all. Two men or two women could never form a marriage union. True marriage is not a cultural fad, isolated in time or place. This is a global truth which has been in place since the dawn of time, since God created man and gave him woman to be his helper and wife.
On Wednesday, the News Observer quoted Tami Fitzgerald, the chairman of the group Vote for Marriage, as she spoke at a victory celebration at the Hilton North Raleigh,
“‘Ladies and gentlemen, through God’s great mercy we have won an overwhelming victory tonight,’ she said.
The voters, she said, sent a clear and unmistakable desire to ‘protect marriage in our state, in our country.
‘As you all know, marriage was not invented by government. Our creator established it as the union of a man and a woman in an exclusive lifelong covenant and it has merely been recognized by government as the key to a strong and flourishing society.’”
She is correct. Mankind did not create marriage; God did. And, what God has made and defined, man can never redefine. Oh, he can certainly try, but all he will succeed in doing is perverting God’s sacred union of one man and one woman, but man cannot change what marriage is. No matter how many rogue judges or devious and deviant politicians try to force a false definition of marriage on the people of America, it will never be true. Homosexual “marriage” is not only a sham, but it is a danger to our nation. It invites nothing but evil, as it mocks God’s very design for human sexuality and family relationships. Nothing good can come of it.
Naturally, those on the radical Left are unhappy with this vote. Even the Communist-in-Chief, Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), expressed his displeasure through a spokesmouth. According to the San Francisco Chronicle,
“…Obama’s campaign says he’s ‘disappointed’ with North Carolina’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
Obama campaign spokesman Cameron French said in a Tuesday statement that the ban on same-sex unions is ‘divisive and discriminatory.’ French says same-sex couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.”
The word “discriminatory,” from “discriminate,” has been vilified in our deranged, politically correct society. Discrimination is necessary for discernment. The main definition of discriminate is the act of making careful distinctions. Being able to discern truth requires discriminating between truths and lies. Of course, when it comes to marriage, it is an easy call to discriminate between a fake and the real deal.
So, yes, defending and affirming marriage is most certainly discriminatory, and when you have polar opposite forces, each demanding to be recognized, you have sharp division. There can be no common ground between those who would counterfeit marriage and those who are fighting to defend marriage against a lying “definition” of it which is born in the demonic pit of Hell.
Mr. French declared that same-sex couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as “straight” couples. Well, Mr. French, every American, including homosexuals, already has all the same rights, when it comes to marriage. We all have the right to marry someone of the opposite sex who is not a close relative and who is beyond the age of consent. This is not about granting new “rights” to anyone; it is instead a full-frontal assault on the institution of marriage and the family.
The communists know that when they destroy the family unit, they weaken and fracture the unity of the society. The family is the bedrock of civilization, and a society of families united behind moral values is not easily divided and conquered by a power-hungry, communist state. That is why we are seeing such a fevered propaganda campaign aimed at our school kids. The radical Left is working overtime to program acceptance of homosexuality into the impressionable minds of our young people.
They are making disturbing headway, as so many kids nowadays see nothing wrong with homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.” I shudder to think of the future of America when a large majority of the younger generations fully accepts the disintegration of marriage and family. We are already too far down that dark road, and one day we will reap the deadly harvest of it.
In the meantime, we thank the Lord for this victory in North Carolina, and we pray for victories for marriage in November in other states like Minnesota and Maine that are putting this vital issue to the voters. The demonic forces of homosexuality and their human minions will not cease their wicked fight for counterfeit marriage, and neither will we stand down in our defense of truth.
As the days grow ever darker, I keep reminding myself that those of us who belong to the Lord, whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will have the final victory. Despite the terrible Hell to be unleashed on the Earth, in the very end, we win.
