In a report issued yesterday by the New York Times, several *prominent* Republicans signed a legal brief in support of gay marriage. This includes four former Governors, two members of Congress, and several advisers to former President George W. Bush.
This move continues to shed light upon the fact that those on The Hill are completely out of touch with the American people. While the gay community has been manipulated by mainstream media in to a big hurrah as a victory for gay rights, they are ignoring the fact that this only further enslaves them. They are now caught in the snare that the heterosexual community has been subject to: a government mandate on the institution of marriage.
Last time I checked, marriage was not an illegal act, but a biblical concept. Lets take a look. From freedictionary:

I don’t think the Government should tell Churches who to marry.I also don’t think the Government should tell Churches who they shouldn’t marry.If a church says that gay marriage is in violation with its beliefs and tenets of its faith then I have no problem with that church not performing that rite.If a gay couple can find a church that wants to marry them, more power to them.If you go to the justice of the peace, I think you should get a civil union no matter who you are since it is a civil and not a religious institution.The reason that Government got involved in marriage was because progressives who believed in eugenics wanted to make sure that blacks and whites could not intermarry and dilute the white race.
The slow decay of morality is the basis of the socialist movement. It makes the people look to the State instead of Community and Religion for direction.I do not wear my religion on my sleeve, but the total disregard for Religious Liberty is eroding, and is going into overtime with Obama.
It was mentioned to me that in a lot of ways, violent revolution would be easier than the battle that we and our children are about to face in the next generation.
I just finished The Harbinger at book club. It’s a very interesting read about an ancient biblical prophecy that foretells our collapse.This isn’t a fight that our children will fight. It’s ramping up to befall America in just a few short years. Things will continue to get worse as organizations and institutions fall into disarray, the GOP is there now.Turning back to God is the only answer.
