We will soon be hearing the opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court concerning same-sex marriage in America. Those on the left demand what they call “marriage equality” nation-wide, and those on the right are calling for the Federal Government to stay out of the marriage business. Their thinking seems to be “Let the people decide by the democratic process on a state-by-state basis how marriage will be defined.” Both, the left and the right are wrong on this one. Marriage is not the product of popular consensus or opinion of the left or the right. It is an institution created by, defined by and overseen by God himself—the God in whom we declare we place our trust!

Government didn’t create marriage. Federal or state governments cannot, therefore recreate marriage in any form. The only obligation and responsibility government has concerning marriage is to recognize it as God has defined it, and protect it as a foundational principle for the “pursuit of happiness.” But unfortunately, I haven’t heard this from today’s politicians. So it’s up to the clergy of this nation to once again lead the way to American revival. One cannot separate American peace and prosperity from American morality. The very Father of our country taught us:

“The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”(-George Washington’s farewell Address)

The U.S. Supreme Court should simply declare that marriage is not a creation of human government, but rather an institution created by God, codified in natural law, and verified through human experience as the union of one male and one female unrelated by blood. It is the duty of nations as well as of men to recognize it as such, and to prefer it for the betterment of civil society above other social arrangements.

As a circle with four corners would cease to be a circle, so would a marriage of two people of the same sex cease to be a marriage. Calling the moon the sun does not make it so, and so it is with marriage.

However the U.S. Supreme Court rules, national leaders and people of good faith and common sense must take up the cause of restoring time-tested Biblical values to our culture, and the clergy must lead the way.

  1. We stand with those of our faith who will follow the word of God, the teachings of Jesus Christ and the flame of the Holy Spirit. Any law that is unjust or illegal is not a law but a political movement. We follow God even if that path leads to jail. We will not comply to this unjust and illegal action to legitimize a political movement as a Constitutional right.

    God bless you all, John

  2. Amen! We thank God for the patriot warriors in Delaware!

    Has God called us to be a nation or His Church? Recall we must that unity seldom exists in a household, a church and less likely a nation. The godless take their cues on individuality to an extent from the examples of division and diversity of stances on God and the bible that “the church” has modeled.

  3. That why Jesus taught us that a house divided cannot stand. The principle applies to the Church as well as to a nation.

      Would we perhaps say then that as the Church goes, so goes the nation?

    The United States Constitution has again been nullified by the Supreme Court. In regards to the recent marriage decision, the Supreme Court has usurped the power of the individual states. Over 30 of the states have passed laws supporting the concept of traditional marriage. Federal courts have overturned these laws and were supported by the Supreme Court. The Constitution expressly states in Article 1, Section 8, the Limited and enumerated Powers of the National Government. These powers include establishing a post office, maintaining an army and navy, borrowing money etc. There is no stipulation concerning domestic relations ie marriage. Such an issue has been wisely left to the states noting Article 10 of the constitution wherein, “The power not delegated by the constitution, nor prohibited by the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or the people”.
    The Supreme Court has short circuited the constitution by utilizing the 1865 14th amendment designed to safeguard black citizens rights. The legislators who sponsored and ratified this amendment would be appalled by its present use and there would probably not be a 14th amendment.

    The federal district, appellate, and Supreme Court illegally removed all support for traditional marriage; an area they have no constitutional authority.

    The United States was regarded as a democratic republic not a kritarchy (rule by judges). The constitution is the glue that holds the United States together. No constitution; no union. God preserve the United States.
