Now that the rage of this debate has gone the way of all fads, this author wishes to conclude these articles concerning gay marriage in debate. This author has written a few articles on the subject, and those articles can be read here: 1, 2, 3, and 4. The readers of this article will not be surprised that gay marriage is not debated any longer but is increasingly becoming the law.
We standby horribly screaming as we see another ‘what made America great’ icon, marriage, disappear: 1) “The California Supreme Court, in two sentences, felled Proposition 8, the voter-passed constitutional amendment that defined marriage as between one man and one woman. On Wednesday, the state’s highest court denied a motion from Prop 8 proponents to preserve the measure, allowing gay marriages to continue statewide.” 2) “Another Christian wedding industry business is facing potential legal action over its owners’ belief that marriage can only be between a man and a woman.” 3) “California Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed a bill allowing transgendered students to use any bathroom they want.” 4) “Addressing the constitutional question, Black explained, ‘Although the law has long recognized that marriage and domestic relations are matters generally left to the states, the restrictions imposed on marriage by states, however, must nonetheless comply with the [U.S.] Constitution.’” And finally, we see this great tragedy in the making: “Same-sex marriage causes pro-life rift in Ohio” and “Dear Mr. President, Thank you for so powerfully voicing your belief that all loving and committed couples should share equally in the freedom to marry.” Furthermore, not only is the gay marriage in debate no longer a debate, but we find that lesbians and homosexuals are now treated better than the rest of us.
This downward spiral will continue. One must ask why; why does the system appear to get worse not better? (To this author, if you listen hard, you can hear: “It is not the sound of victory, it is not the sound of defeat; it is the sound of singing that I hear.”)
As heart rending as it sounds, the ‘why’ is that Christians are ignorant and apathetic. Humanism, unleashed, is desperately wicked. We find everywhere Christians who support humanism and humanistic efforts; there are Christians who viciously argue that the solution to man problems is man himself.
The solution, as all reality solutions, is God Himself. The only solution is the slow process for each disciple to know what to believe and to defend their beliefs.
