The legalization of same-sex marriage is spreading like a cancer that will in time kill this country. If you study history, you will find that God eventually destroys every nation or culture that accepts homosexuality as a normal way of life. Look at Sodom, Gomorrah, ancient Rome and Greece to name a few.
Currently six states, including the District of Columbia, have legalized same-sex marriages. Nearly 40 states have passed laws banning same-sex marriage. This November, 4 states (Maine, Minnesota, Maryland and Washington, have a same-sex initiative on the ballot calling for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
In these four states and perhaps several others, gay rights groups have been running a series of television commercials promoting the acceptance and normalcy of gay marriage. A number of those ads feature a traditional married man and wife, and/or minister who talk about how same-sex marriage is okay. In fact, some of these ads only feature heterosexual people in the promotion of same-sex marriage.
One attorney says that these ads are purposefully trying to mis-represent the views of the majority of the American people and that in essence, the commercials are con jobs. Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action, and Associate Dean with Liberty University School of Law told OneNewsNow:
"They are distracting and diverting attention away from the reality of what the homosexual lifestyle is all about -- distorted sexual behavior -- and trying to couch it in terms of fairness, and having heterosexual folks as the face of so-called same-sex marriage is a clever way to pull the wool over voters' eyes."
"Because people naturally bristle when they think about what would it take actually consummate a so-called same-sex marriage between a man and a man. People naturally have a revulsion of this abnormal, disordered sexual behavior."
Barber also tries to explain to people that when they vote in favor of same-sex marriage that in reality they are voting for the deconstruction of the institution of natural marriage.
Anyone who has grown up in a traditional family will tell you that they learn different things from dad and mom and that it takes both to really make a difference. On the converse, many kids who grew up in a single-parent home will tell you that they always felt like something was missing. Most single-parent homes are run by the mother and many boys and girls from those homes will end up with problems of their own because they never had a positive father figure in their lives.
When you think about it, kids that grow up in a homosexually run home often may end up with some of the same problems as those raised in a single parent home. Having two fathers or two mothers is not the same as having a father and a mother. There is no replacement for the combined work of a father and mother in raising their children.
I know that not all traditional homes are perfect and produce perfect children and that some single parent homes produce great kids. But when you look at overall trends, homes with a dad and mom have a far greater positive impact on kids and their success as adults. Recent studies have also shown that kids from homes without a dad and mom are 82% more likely to end up living in poverty than homes with a traditional dad and mom.
Once the foundations of marriage and Christianity have been destroyed and replaced in America, our nation will no longer be America. Those have been two of the most important foundations that have kept our nation strong for over two centuries. Voting to legalize same-sex marriage only serves to undermine those foundations and it only takes so much undermining to make the whole thing collapse. I fear we are rapidly nearing that point of collapse. That’s why it is so important not allow these perverse and sinful lifestyles to be legalized. They only serve to destroy us, not make us better.
