The SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) has no legal basis to define marriage in any way other than to let people do as they please. If people want polygamy, homosexuality, bestiality, if they want to marry their cars, on what basis can SCOTUS stop them? It will be interesting to see what they do because this issue may be the straw that broke the camel’s back and predict the future of the United States of America.
The US ruling oligarchy as well as a great number of the people clearly deny this basic statement used to justify the formation of the US constitution and state:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
This statement justifies the US nation by calling upon rights granted to human beings by their creator, thus placing the creator’s will and law above that of anyone in the US. The words “to secure” further claim that government’s primary responsibility and fundamental raison d’être is the protection of these rights that originate, not within government or any group people, but from above them, from their creator.
However, the current US’s orgy of narcissism has led leaders and people alike to focus only upon the concepts of their supposed “equality”, “freedom” and “rights” as ultimate truths. As a result they not only ignore, but vehemently deny, that any rights are defined and granted by a Creator since they deny the existence of the Creator.
This is foolish because the one True God, made known through Jesus Christ and the Biblical prophets claims that all power and authority over people and nations is in His hands. He may seem slow in action to us, but that slowness is a demonstration of His patience and grace and a willingness to let humans discover for themselves the failures of their wisdom and the foolishness of tenaciously holding their delusion that eternal life can be found apart from the one who is eternal life and that they can function righteously apart from the one who’s nature defines righteousness. Furthermore His patience is in no way a sign of a lack of resolve to deal with unrighteousness.
As the prophet Daniel said:
“Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding. (Daniel 2:20–21, NASB95)
For the sake of all in this nation, it is time, not for Christians to lament the loss of their wealth and dreams of an easy life, nor to demonstrate before the government, but to fast and pray for leaders that the gospel of the cross and the resurrection may still yet be found by souls currently walking the path to eternal destruction.
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. –Jesus (Matthew 7:13–14, NASB95)
