Same Sex Marriage Not Objective Truth
It’s been pointed out that homosexuals have always had the same rights as heterosexuals when it comes to marriage; a homosexual man can marry a woman and vice-versa. The aggressive agenda for the radical homosexual is to change culture and redefine truth. This is what leads me to write this post though I fought it for weeks.
Let me clarify what I am not saying. I am not saying that homosexuals are horrible people or that they are going to Hell because of their behaviour. All sexual brokenness misses the mark of God’s holiness. Romans tells us that we all fall short and need cleansing. My brokenness is as damnable offense as that of any homosexual. Apart from salvation in Christ none of us can be redeemed.
What I am saying is that truth is not subjective; it is not based on the latest poll. God set the standard in Genesis chapter two; “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, an be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh…” Christ reaffirms this model in the New Testament. The radical homosexual agenda is to make a lie the norm. They desire to force approval for their brokenness though objectively it is wrong (“and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them”---Romans 1:32).
Though they give lip service to tolerance this agenda is only tolerant of one view. Those that have an opposing view will not be tolerated. If you have a business or a non-profit (Boy Scouts of America) organization that opposes same-sex marriage then you will come under the gun. Your business will be sued as will your non-profit. Homosexuals will boycott your business. They will attempt to pass laws to take away your non-profit tax exemption. Dana Loesch (Diary) makes the case in a Red State article in which she states, “In suing over marriage one is demanding that others modify their beliefs to accommodate another. Do not people of faith retain their First Amendment liberty of freedom of religion?” She cites a number of cases to demonstrate that homosexuals will aggressively pursue legal action against those that hold to the truth that same-sex marriage is wrong.
As Diana Loesch has wonderfully stated in her article, “The Argument for Marriage Equality Is Not A Conservative One,” In suing over “marriage” itself one is demanding that God change His definition of the union between a man and a woman. If recognition of status, ease with other contractual obligations, and other issues are the issues, why the need to force people of faith to alter recognition of God’s Word on the matter? The people may bend as reeds to lawfare, but God will not. Frankly, I see no point in being on any side other than God’s on any matter, and God is more small government than any player in the scene.”
