Late Night Immoral Decisions Need a Response

First, it was our nation's renegade judges in the various judicial pockets of this country becoming the courts of last resort to move forward the legislating everything from abortion rights, hate crimes, free speech for Christians, and propositions nullifying that which is morally constitutional.  Last night the NY lawmakers sent the bill to legalize gay marriage in the Empire State of New York, and Governor Andrew Cuomo (the son of the former liberal Governor Mario Cuomo) could not sign it fast enough. 

What should be and how the response be (not reaction) to this issue?  The decision from the "Peoples Republik of New York" now makes it six states in the Union legalizing same sex "couplings."  Unfortunately, as the church in America, we have been more reactionary, when we should be responding with meekness to those ensnared by this dangerous "death-style."

That being said, let me share with you a recent article written by Frank Turek for his Cross-Examined.org blog.  In this article, Frank shares his thoughts on the interesting scenario that there are those who profess to be gay and yet they are against same-sex marriage.  One such is an anti-gay marriage David Blankenhorn, who is anything but an anti-gay“bigot.” He is a life-long, pro-gay, liberal democrat who disagrees with the Bible’s prohibitions against homosexual behavior.  He is also against this move by the State of New York.

Gay Marriage: Even Liberals Know It's Bad

By Frank Turek
This column is one I wrote for TownHall.com.
Why not legalize same-sex marriage? Who could it possibly hurt? Children and the rest of society. That’s the conclusion of David Blankenhorn, who is anything but an anti-gay“bigot.” He is a life-long, pro-gay, liberal democrat who disagrees with the Bible’s prohibitions against homosexual behavior. Despite this, Blankenhorn makes a powerful case against Same-Sex marriage in his book, The Future of Marriage.

He writes, “Across history and cultures . . . marriage’s single most fundamental idea is that every child needs a mother and a father. Changing marriage to accommodate same-sex couples would nullify this principle in culture and in law.”

How so? The law is a great teacher, and same sex marriage will teach future generations that marriage is not about children but about coupling. When marriage becomes nothing more than coupling, fewer people will get married to have children.  [click here to read the rest of the article] [1]
