WND: Schlafly Says Marriage Ruling ‘Not the End, It’s the Beginning’

June 29, 2015 | Author:

11403100_1130187613664124_4337606943413959610_nSchlafly believes the decision will create a new political movement and more legal challenges. She drew a comparison to the issue of abortion, which is “settled law” but remains a hot political issue generating opposition from millions of Americans.

“A lot of people thought when the Supreme Court handed down its bad decision in Roe v Wade, well the Supreme Court has spoken and that’s it. That settles it. Well, it didn’t settle it. It was just the beginning of a big fight. And eventually that decision’s going to be overturned. But, meanwhile, we’ve cut big holes in it because the American people did not accept the ‘rule of law’ that one human being could belong to another human being.

“The same thing will happen here. I don’t agree that Americans should submit to unilateral rule by what Lincoln called ‘that imperial tribunal.’ That’s not the kind of government we have. If we’re going to change any laws they should go through the legislative process. The idea that basically one judge should basically remake the law, a law that has been law since long before our Constitution was adopted, is just not acceptable.”

What Gay Parenthood Meant For Me As A Child

The recent pull for legislation regarding gay marriages and the arguments over the fitness of gays as parents has led me to look back at my own childhood and the time I spent parented by a woman who now lives openly as a lesbian.

She and my father began dating when I was six and soon after were married. Though I hardly knew her, I was expected to treat her as a mother figure. She was unlike any woman I had met before. She was loud, crass, and very manly in dress and manner. She smoked and used vulgar language, and she constantly made sexual overtures to those around her, male and female, even in the presence of my father. She considered herself to be saucy and sassy, and she considered feminine women to be ridiculous and weak. Her marriage to my father marked the end of our attendance at church, though we had never missed a Sunday before she came along. My father remained married to her for several years after I moved away to live with my biological mother. Then, to the surprise of very few, she left him for another woman and has been having relations with one woman after another ever since. (more…)

My Experience, as a 13-year-old, in Government Sex Education Class

I have known several people throughout my life who have ruined their lives through fornication. And I am not exaggerating. Sometimes it was losing their virginity and dealing with the agony of the person breaking up with them later on. All breakups are hard. But I have been told that there is a great deal of difference in breakups of pure relationships vs. physical relationships. With the pure relationships, both parties have still saved themselves. They may have given their hearts temporarily, but not their bodies. Not their physical purity. Not their virginity. I am told that you never forget “your first.” Why would I give myself to a man outside of marriage, only to have my future husband feeling inferior at the thought of being compared to him? And why would I want those memories that never leave?

Theology which Confronts the Sexual Revolution and Moral Upheaval

June 29, 2015 | Author:

By Albert Mohler

Western society is currently experiencing what can only be described as a moral revolution. Our society’s moral code and collective ethical evaluation on a particular issue has undergone not small adjustments but a complete reversal. That which was once condemned is now celebrated, and the refusal to celebrate is now condemned.

What makes the current moral and sexual revolution so different from previous moral revolutions is that it is taking place at an utterly unprecedented velocity. Previous generations experienced moral revolutions over decades, even centuries. This current revolution is happening at warp speed.

As the church responds to this revolution, we must remember that current debates on sexuality present to the church a crisis that is irreducibly and inescapably theological. This crisis is tantamount to the type of theological crisis that Gnosticism presented to the early church or that Pelagianism presented to the church in the time of Augustine. In other words, the crisis of sexuality challenges the church’s understanding of the gospel, sin, salvation, and sanctification. Advocates of the new sexuality demand a complete rewriting of Scripture’s metanarrative, a complete reordering of theology, and a fundamental change to how we think about the church’s ministry.

Christian News Network: Judge Roy Moore Renews Call to Amend U.S. Constitution to Ban Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

set-5a-color-roy-moore-chief-justice-14825913jpg-df54fe1459ae944b“I think the law of the land is plain. It’s the United States Constitution,” he stated. “Not an opinion of the Supreme Court which contradicts that law.”

Moore also advised reporters that the Supreme Court can be petitioned for a re-hearing within 25 days of a ruling. He said that while it is rare for the court to do so, he hoped that the justices would consider the strong dissent in the case.

The judge also said that he would continue to press for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution protecting the institution of marriage.

AiG: Can Christians Judge Gay “Marriage”?

June 29, 2015 | Author:

aigI must admit I have been amazed (and saddened) by the number of Christians who claim that because we call gay “marriage” a sin, we are being judgmental, for they claim the Bible tells us not to judge! And, of course, many non-Christians inconsistently quote the Bible to claim that Christians shouldn’t judge those who believe in gay “marriage.”

Actually, and ironically, many of these people are very judgmental themselves as they make their (false) accusation. And it’s not just gay “marriage” we call sin, but all sexual immorality (like adultery and fornication), lying, murder, thieving, and so on. How can we judge that these actions are sin? Because we have an absolute authority by which all our actions must be judged—the authority of the Word of God. God obviously is the ultimate Judge, and He has given us His Word with which to judge actions.

A Texas lawmaker is calling for a special session to address marriage licensing in the state.

Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview, requested Monday that Gov. Greg Abbott call a special session of the 84th Legislature following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

Simpson said the court had “cheapened” the institution of marriage and called the ruling an aberration. In a statement on SCOTUS ruling and his request for a special session, Simpson said:

Conjugality: Reconsidering SCOTUS authority to mandate same-sex marriage

[Editor’s Note: Published a month ago in preparation for the SCOTUS ruling]

We know that some of you have grown weary of reading articles about homosexual issues. Yet, these issues cannot be ignored.  Please look for these articles as they are published.  These articles will be structured to inform about the issues which each American must think through to develop his own position, including:

* Does the Fourteenth Amendment Really Mandate Homosexual Marriage?

* Must a Decision of the U.S. Supreme Court be Obeyed as the Supreme Law of the Land?

* Does Romans 13 Require that Christians Yield to a Decision Mandating Same-Sex Marriage?

* Why Were Biblical, Moral, and Religious Arguments Ignored By the Parties Arguing to the U.S. Supreme Court?

* Have the Federal Judges Deciding in Favor of a Constitutional Right to Same-Sex Marriage Cases Truly Behaved Judicially?

* What Would Be the Consequences of Mandating Same-Sex Marriage for the Church and Christian Organizations?

* What Would Be the Consequences of Mandating Same-Sex Marriage for the Traditional Family?

* How Should Governors, Attorneys General, State Legislatures, and Other State Officers Respond to a Decision to Mandate Same-Sex Marriage?

* Could Congress Respond to a Decision Mandating Same-Sex Marriage by use of the U.S. Constitution’s “Good Behavior” Clause?

* Could Congress Respond to a Decision Mandating Same-Sex Marriage by Using its Power to Limit the Jurisdiction of the Federal Courts?

* How Could Congress Respond to a Decision Mandating Same-Sex Marriage using its Appropriation Power to Prohibit the Expenditure of Funds to Implement the Decision at the National Level?

* How Should U.S. Citizens Respond to a Decision Mandating Same-Sex Marriage in their various roles as members of grand juries, members of petit juries, taxpayers, and voters?

Although many of us find it increasingly difficult to recognize the nation that we grew up in, we can draw strength from the fact that we still live in a Constitutional Republic, and that our government still operates largely by the “consent of the governed.”  And, as Americans, we have the right to determine to withhold our consent from the actions of government officials —if we believe those actions to be lawless.  Whatever the U.S. Supreme Court will do, we are each accountable for how we respond.  Voltaire counseled “It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.”  Therefore, there could be personal consequences to each person who chooses the route of resistance, but ultimately each of us is responsible to God, not just to man.

The Supreme Court Ratifies a New Civic Religion That Is Incompatible with Christianity

June 28, 2015 | Author:

djwudi Compfight CC

Christians who’ve not suffered for their faith often romanticize persecution. They imagine themselves willing to lose their jobs, their liberty, or even their lives for standing up for the Gospel. Yet when the moment comes, at least here in the United States, they often find that they simply can’t abide being called “hateful.” It creates a desperate, panicked response. “No, you don’t understand. I’m not like those people — the religious right.” Thus, at the end of the day, a church that descends from apostles who withstood beatings finds itself unable to withstand tweetings. Social scorn is worse than the lash.

Western Journalism: Obergefell v. Hodges: Illegitimate, Unlawful, And A Fraud On The American People

June 27, 2015 | Author:

137231145_ee1de99f8c

The Supreme Court’s decision today redefining marriage to include couples of the same sex is wholly illegitimate and unlawful. A nullity. Worthy only to be disobeyed.

Anyone who says otherwise — that the rule of law requires recognition of same-sex marriage — is committing a fraud. And any State official — like Governor Robert Bentley of Alabama — who says that his oath of office requires unconditional obedience to the Supreme Court’s mandate to issue same-sex couples licenses to marry is mistaking his oath to the Constitution as if it were an oath of absolute obedience to five justices who happen to be sitting on the nation’s highest court.

Indeed, from the outset of his bare majority decision, Justice Kennedy did not even act like a judge. Rather, he wrote as if he were an existentialist philosopher seeking the meaning of life, as if the “liberty” protected in the Constitution was a personal quest “to define and express [one’s personal] identity.”

But the Constitution is not some philosophical work written by Jean Paul Sartre. Rather, it is a political and legal document designed by America’s founders to secure the unchanging God-given rights to life, liberty, and property which are deeply rooted in the 18th century soil of the nation. Justice Kennedy showed no regard for these fixed principles, opting for an evolutionary approach to law — asserting that the existential definition of marriage changes with changing times.

Western Journalism: The Duty of Lower Magistrates To Face Down They Tyranny of Same-Sex Marriage

June 27, 2015 | Author:

nationsfmeme2015

The Federal Government seems bent on destroying Western Civilization. After a long litany of laws, policies, and court opinions designed to undermine and attack the family and Christianity, the final blow could be decreed in just the next several days. I speak of the impending ruling on homosexual marriage.

It appears the U.S. Supreme Court is about to trample the constitutions of 31 states – another frontal assault against family. Sociologists like Carle Zimmerman (Family and Civilization, (Intercollegiate Studies Institute; 2nd abridged edt., 2008)) and J.D. Unwin (Sex and Culture, (Oxford University Press; 1st edt., 1934)) have proven conclusively that when nations denigrate God’s created order regarding family, they cannot survive. There has never been an exception in the history of the world.

Every good Statist knows that in order to strengthen the State — you have to weaken the family. The federal government has been imposing law and policy to accomplish that end for decades now. Meanwhile, the lower magistrates — who in a system of true federalism know they possess lawful authority and a duty to interpose — have decided to hide behind the lie that “A federal court has ruled, so we can do nothing but obey.”

Most Americans no longer understand that the states were never intended to be mere provinces of the federal government. They were never intended to be mere implementation centers for unjust and immoral federal laws, policies, and court opinions.
