The Spread of Same Sex “Marriage”

The Spread of Same Sex “Marriage”

According “Same-sex Marriages Expand in Alabama” (Feb. 11, 2015), as well as other recent pieces, homosexual unions continue to increase in America. The Supreme Court appears ready to legalize such unions throughout the United States.

At present, 37 states have legal same-sex unions. Texas and 12 other states forbid such unions. Regardless of the growing acceptability of this practice, several points must never be overlooked.

  1. 26 of these 37 states have such unions by court decision, not by popular vote. (
  2. It is a misnomer to label these unions “marriages.” Everyone knows that a marriage consists of a man and a woman, not people of the same gender. Calling a sodomite union a “marriage” doesn’t make it one.
  3. Until recently, the vast majority of American citizens knew without doubt that homosexuality was unlawful and a sexual perversion.
  4. The Bible clearly—without ambiguity—says that homosexuality is immoral and a distortion of God’s good design.
  5. The Scriptures state that unrepentant homosexuals do that which is unnatural and indecent (Romans 1:26-27) and will not enter heaven (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

While this sexual perspective and activity is being debated, we must always bear these facts in mind.
