3.14.2005    |    "They shall be male and female"
Well, a liberal judge in (where else?) San Francisco has ruled that California's ban on gay marriages is "unconstitutional" (Washington Post story). In the twisted (perverted, actually)logic of the left, the Sodomite judge Kramer noted that
The state's protracted denial of equal protection cannot be justified simply because such constitutional violation has become traditional.
Well, yes, the ban on gay marriages does have a bit of tradition behind it. Some 3,000 years, give or take a few centuries. But, hey marriage for heteros only is so, oh, Judeo-Christian. We're better than that here in San Francisco.

Well, just in case we've forgotten, Scripture, our best source for this sort of thing, is plain on this. To cite but one example, 1 Corinthians 6:
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality...
Our sense of right and wrong, our tradition, our morality is based on Judeo-Christian Scripture. Our very lives are based on a gift from God, who created man and woman so that they might be joined as one to propagate the species.

Now, when the flood waters raged, the Lord commanded Noah to ensure that he brought a male and female of each species. Good thing there weren't any gay marriages on the ark; talk about premature extinction of species. From Genesis 6:
19 And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female.
A good thing, too. Just as those who would wish gay marriage to be a good thing, and who falsely liken it to bans on inter-racial marriage.

The problem here is that the very same Scripture admonishes us that there is no longer Greek nor Jew, free nor slave, but that we are all one in Christ Jesus. Not to mention that Jesus Himself seems to have put the kabosh on such bans by His association with Samaritans and other 1st century ne'er-do-wells. But, those leading the gay agenda are not deterred by thousands of years of tradition:
But a deputy city attorney {Sodom Francisco], Therese Stewart, criticized "the so-called tradition argument," saying the meaning of marriage has evolved over time. As examples, she cited now-overturned bans on marriage by interracial couples, or laws that treated wives as a husband's property.
Ah yes. Another believer in "evolution." Well, to coin a phrase, that's just a theory now, isn't it?

About this site and the author

Welcome. My name is John Luke Rich, (very) struggling Christian. The focus here is Christianity in its many varieties, its fussing and feuding, how it impacts our lives and our society, with detours to consider it with other faiths (or lack thereof).

Call this blog my way of evangelizing on the internet.

Putting it differently, we're only here on this earth a short time. It's the rest of eternity that we should be most concerned about. Call it the care and feeding of our souls.

I was born Jewish, and born again in Christ Jesus over thirty years ago. First as a Roman Catholic; now a Calvinist by persuasion and a Baptist by denomination. But I'm hardly a poster boy for doctrinal rigidity.

I believe that Scripture is the rock on which all Christian churches must stand -- or sink if they are not so grounded. I believe that we are saved by faith, but hardly in a vacuum. That faith is a gift from God, through no agency on our part -- although we sometimes turn a deaf ear and choose to ignore God's knocking on the door.

To be Christian is to evangelize. Those who think it not their part to evangelize perhaps haven't truly understood what our Lord told us in Matthew 28. We must preach the Gospel as best we are able. Using words if necessary.

Though my faith waxes and wanes, it never seems to go away. Sometimes I wish it would, to give me some peace of mind. But then, Jesus never said that walking with Him was going to be easy...

Final note: I also blog as Jack Rich on cultural, political and other things over at Wrong Side of the Tracks

Thanks for stopping by.
