‘How long will you seek false gods (‘chase after lies’ NAB)?’ (Ps. 4:2)
Whenever sex becomes mere personal pleasure with no orientation toward new life, one falters to find fault with anyone doing whatever (s)he finds pleasing.
It is fitting that President Bill Clinton proclaimed the nineties as the last great battlefield for ‘gay rights’. He merely extended the tattered mantle of his sex addiction over gays. Seeking vindication from those exposing his ‘other life’, he naturally advocated for those insisting that homosexuality was ethnicity, a human brand to be validated at every level possible.
The gold ring of gay activists has always been marriage. It is the ultimate ‘normalizer’. But legal validation is a superficial antidote to those living with the ache of gender disintegration. No amount of laws can change the truth that same-sex unions are a misbegotten effort to fill one’s need for love.
God cannot bless such unions, in spite of efforts of high and mighty ones to do so. Barack Obama became the first president in history last May to advocate for ‘gay marriage.’ He lifted the last restraint toward homosexuality in our nation. He took what is glorious–sex in marriage and chaste friendships—and violated both with ‘gay marriage.’ In regards to sexual ethics, he showed that he worships and serves the creature rather than the Creator.
‘’The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.’ (Ps. 12:8)
‘Father, we are sorry for making peace with ‘gay marriage’. It is a false peace that misconstrues the real nature of marriage and homosexuality. Have mercy on us and help us to retrieve the true meaning of sexuality. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we confess our sins of cowardice and compromise. We have violated Your holy commands in regards to what we have done to our bodies and other bodies. And in our compromise we have become cowards, unwilling to stand for what we know to be true for the dignity of all. We ask that You might have mercy on Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington; uphold marriage in these states, and in our nation, as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on ‘gay marriage.’
