The 5 – 4 decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to make all 50 states of the union endorse, encourage and promote unnatural sex by redefining marriage to include same-sex couples is reason for great concern.
First off SCOTUS, to my knowledge, never actually provided a definition of the thousands of years old Biblical institution of marriage that the States are supposed to comply with. And secondly, how on earth did SCOTUS come up with its decision to bring chaos into the American household?
To me it is all quite straightforward and no mystery whatsoever: It is on account of a liberal view of the Constitution and the Holy Scriptures upon which the Constitution is based.
A “wax-nose” view of Scripture is held by Theological liberals whereby, very simply and very briefly, the Bible is viewed as a record of humanity’s search for God rather than God’s revelation to humanity. With such a view the Bible can be twisted this way and that in order to make it say whatever you want it to say.
The refrain is that those people back then do not know what we know today and therefore wrote a lot of things out of ignorance. In other words, they got things wrong! Apply this to the American Constitution and you can see something of where the five of the nine SCOTUS members are coming from. An example of this erroneous way of thinking would be that were James Madison et al to construct the Constitution today they would have most certainly intended that same-sex couples not be excluded from marriage! In other words, (like the Bible as viewed by Liberal Theologians), the Constitution can be twisted (like a wax-nose) to point in whatever direction most suits the political views of the liberal judges! Thus politics not truth that drives these five judges, (unlike the Christian who believes that God’s Law upon which human law is derived is absolute, truth to the liberal is merely relative, which is to say that these judges are Post Modernists and as such, unlike those who hold the Christian worldview, have a worldview of uncertainties.)
Why should I, as a resident of Australia (not America), care what happens in America? Well, the United States of America is a great experiment, a great Christian experiment! If America goes under the whole of the West goes down with her because America as a world power is what protects and maintains the Western freedoms we all enjoy. America is our big brother defending the rest of us against bullies such as ISIS and the utopian follies of Socialism etc. But alas! There are five liberal judges wanting the whole of the Union to destabilize the very bedrock upon which society, including all of Western society, rests, i.e., Biblical marriage which is between one man and one woman for life!
In light of recent events (such as the vilification of bakers for their refusal to go against their consciences and bake cakes that openly promote a gay lifestyle) as a Christian minister who is a marriage celebrant I am getting a little nervous, foreseeing a time when I will be hated and thrown in prison for my refusal to marry same-sex couples an account of my holding the thousands of years old and Biblical definition of marriage.
Please do not ask me to concur with those five liberal judges who endorse and promote sodomy and now would have every one of the fifty States of America submit to their will and do likewise! This is not freedom. This is not the America of the Founding Fathers! This is tyranny!
