Post#16, Same sex marriage.

Newt Gingrich and Howard Dean were debating live on C-Span, at George Washington University, when I decided to do this post.  Newt is against same sex marriage and said you can believe whatever you want but he believes the reason marriage between a man and a woman is the way it is supposed to be is because that is how it has traditionally been done for thousands of years and that is what makes it right.  This blog author, believes Newt stands for the right position but doesn't know what the argument is to defend it.  In fact, I have never heard anyone give the right answer to defend the traditional position.  Their defense won't hold water.  They aren't giving the real reason it is wrong .  Do you want to know why homosexual and lesbian activity, let alone unions, are wrong? I'll tell you later.

Howard Dean said you need to allow same sex unions to give the 'couple' equal rights, about 1700, that heterosexual couples gain through marriage.  In other words, lets don't bother to find out if there would be 'consequences' for the United States of America for embracing homosexuality and lesbianism into our society.  He said the issue is equal rights, fairness.  He said "to hell with Leviticus", when making reference to it being wrong to eat 'trife'. He was referencing traditional historical precedence having no relevance  to current issues.  This is the authors take on Howard Dean.  He probably doesn't believe homosexuality is right personally but he is a politician and he just wants to give the people what they want.  I agree with him, if it is ok morally to do so.  I don't believe it is.  And here is why;

Remember I said Newt  is right but doesn't know how to defend his position?  Here is the answer.
Homosexuality and lesbianism are wrong because it is a violation of nature.  Man doesn't have  jurisdiction  to rule on the subject.  In the military they say it isn't in your eschelon of responsibility.  If man doesn't like the law of gravity, can he tell gravity to just go jump in a lake?  No!  You can violate the law of gravity, it's your free choice, but you better be willing to live with the consequences.  You can get Congress to outlaw gravity and go step out the window of a 50 story building but the consequences you will face will kill you.  Like a bumper sticker I saw which said, "If you're going to live like there is no God, you better be right!"

Common sense tells you homosexuality, lesbianism,bestiality, and things like this are wrong, but those trapped in the cravings of their sin nature deny the light within them and say, "don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up".  Common sense isn't very common anymore.

This is my first real Lord Lunatic Liar post.  Is it trueAm I crazy?  Or am I a liar?  Let me give you some supernatural revelation on this subject.  Only trouble is you are probably so mad at me now you won't be convinced by anything else I share either.  Only problem is I'm not the one to get mad at.  Your problem is with God.  Here goes.  Here is a Bible verse I want to share with you.  You might be saying, "that book has no authority!".  Remember the law of gravity?  The Bible doesn't need defended.  It is the offensive  weapon of the Spirit of God.  I slices cleanly between "soul and spirit, joint and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of your heart," Heb.4:12.   Have you ever had people ask why God doesn't rain fire and brimstone down on homosexuals like he did at Sodom and Gomorrah?  If you knew your Bible you wouldn't ask that question.  Here is what God said through Peter in II Peter 2:6, "He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly thereafter."  Get that?  S and G is the example.  God is saying I did it to them.  I will do it to you also.  Jesus said He didn't come into the world to condemn the world but to save it, John 3:17.  Jesus said in Matthew 4:17, "Repent; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".  Repent means to stop sinning.  Turn 180 degrees.  Go the opposite direction.  Quit lying, quit stealing, quit cheating on your spouse, on the IRS, on your boss, etc..

The people who hate this message are unrepentant.  Jesus said you can go to hell if you want to but it will be over My dead body!  "Men love darkness more then light because their deeds are evil"  The day they put me in jail for hate speech is the day our country has gone to hell.  God's judgment will fall on this country just like any other.  He doesn't owe us anything.  "God is no respecter of persons."         


  1. I like your explanation. No argument from me!! Keep up the good work

  2. Knowing something is wrong and actually changing are 2 different things.
    I agree--your reason for why its wrong --are right.

    question I have is-- how should we then live toward those who do not overcome their temptations in this area? Do we treat them kindly and pray? Do we continually confront?

    I'm talking about if this is someone in your family and you are a person that mainly moves in the circle of family as God has put some of us.

  3. Well, it isn't easy. I know It's the Holy Spirit's job to convict the world of sin, and righteousness, and judgment, not mine. Man's conscience can be seared so he can't feel the sting of conviction. If they live in sin and attend church they are to be dealt with according to Matthew 18. A sound Bible based pastor, elder, or counselor could help one a lot with this on a case by case basis. Thanks Pokeberry Mary.
