Fifteen Years Ago Congress Passed into Law the Defense of Marriage Act
Fifteen years ago, Congress passed and President Clinton signed into law the "Defense of Marriage Act." This is a FEDERAL LAW the defines marriage as between a man and woman. Now President Obama has decided all by himself that this LAW is not constitutional, with zero input from the Supreme Court, and has ordered his Attorney General to quit defending this law.
This is a lawless man who supports the radical homosexual agenda, the destruction of God's Holy Institution of Marriage and the family, the legalized slaughter of innocent babies (President Obama will veto any defunding of Planned Parenthood if it should miraculously get out of the Senate.), and the enemies of Israel. He is in every sense a true enemy of God, opposing God and His Word at every turn.
Gay marriage is not only making a MOCKERY OF GOD'S HOLY INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE, but is an ABOMINATION TO GOD! If two people of the same sex choose to live together and engage in homosexual relations in complete rebellion to God's Word, that is their choice. But people who know Christ as their Savior cannot allow society to change God's definition of marriage which is one man, one woman, for one lifetime.
For the proponents of gay marriage who are comparing this to the civil rights movement of the '60s, that is simply absurd. A person does NOT choose the color of their skin. A person DOES choose who they have sex with!!!
Sadly, the CHURCH has been asleep for too long. Pastors MUST lead their congregations in fighting those who want to change God's Word. It is time for all the various pro family organizations, Christian legal organizations, to come together as ONE UNIFIED VOICE and put an end to these attempts to change God's definition of marriage. The homosexual community represents less than 1% of society, yet they press forward their agenda because they have clearly defined goals and are UNITED. I love you and care about you so much. Marriage is God's idea, not man's. God's definition of marriage is one man, one woman, one lifetime. It is not even debatable to talk about any other kind of relationship because God clearly lays out HIS plan in the Word, and anything else is a perversion of that plan! However, the perversion of God's plan for marriage is detailed in the Bible from the Old through the New Testaments and evident throughout history. That perversion DOES NOT make God's plan any less true.
Many reading this today will dismiss these words as nice but not realistic.That is straight from the pits of hell itself. It is VERY realistic. The world has perverted God's plan for marriage too long, and it is time to tell people the truth. It works God's way, it will never work any other way.
