SCOTUS Declares War on Marriage and Family

Jun 27, 2015

If ever a time the phrase “Now the end begins” meant something, it is now. In a decision just as sinister, far-reaching and abominable as the 1973 Roe v Wade decision on abortion, the Supreme Court of the United States has just declared that reality and biology no longer exist, and we can now declare marriage to be whatever we want it to be.

scotus 5In a 5-4 decision, the unelected, unaccountable and irresponsible judges declared that the laws of all 50 states must now be struck down, and the decision of these five judges will now determine what marriage means. One report puts it this way:

The Supreme Court on Friday delivered an historic victory for gay rights, ruling 5-4 that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter where they live and that states may no longer reserve the right only for heterosexual couples.
The court’s action marks the culmination of an unprecedented upheaval in public opinion and the nation’s jurisprudence. Advocates called it the most pressing civil rights issue of modern times, while critics said the courts had sent the country into uncharted territory by changing the traditional definition of marriage.
“The court now holds that same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry. No longer may this liberty be denied to them,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. He was joined in the opinion by the court’s liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
All four of the court’s most conservative members—Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr.—dissented and each wrote separate opinions. Reading a dissent from the bench for the first time in his tenure, Roberts said, “This is a court, not a legislature.”

Judicial activism at its worst has once again struck America. Instead of allowing the American people to decide, five judges have decided for them, and have declared war on marriage, on God, on morality, on family, and on our children. Writing before this decision, Focus on the Family enumerated some of the direct consequences of this:

We will continue to see religious freedom taking a back seat to sexual freedom in many facets of society:
-Harms Children: Redefining marriage denies children of same-sex couples either a mother or a father. Decades of social science research has shown children do best when they’re raised in a home with their married mom and dad. Government policies should reflect the benefits of both a mom and a dad.
-Forced Closures: Faith-based adoption agencies are being forced to close their doors when faced with laws and mandates requiring them to violate their religious beliefs by placing children in homes with same-sex parents. This pressure will increase in the coming days.
-Legal/Public Challenges: Christian business owners – photographers, bakers, inn keepers, florists and others – who politely decline to use their talents and businesses to participate in same-sex ceremonies experience harassment, legal challenges and crippling fines.
-Parental Rights: Parents who want a say in what their young children are being taught in school about homosexuality have found legalized same-sex marriage is a “trump card,” which overrides their parental rights, leaving them no say in the matter.
-Tax-Exempt Status: Pastors and churches will face pressure to perform and celebrate same-sex marriages or face government retribution, such as the loss of tax-exempt status, or possibly be prosecuted for discrimination.
-Accrediting/Licensing: Private religious school accreditation, professional licenses and even employment criteria will increasingly require affirmation of homosexuality and same-sex marriage as a condition for approval.
-Counseling: There will be a continued push to ban counseling for teenagers who struggle with unwanted same-sex attractions, and who desire therapy to address this.
-Grant Exclusions: Faith-based charities that adhere to God’s design for sexuality, marriage and family will be excluded from government grants that help serve the poor and needy at home and abroad.
-Endangered Freedoms: Freedom of speech will become endangered as the government passes regulatory and even criminal laws punishing Christian views of marriage, deeming it as “hate speech” in any type of media, including radio, print, television, and the Web. This is already the case in Canada and the U.K.

This is just the beginning. This is a declaration of war by five judges who have spat in the face of their Creator, of marriage, of biology, and freedom. Now a major proper response for Christians and others is massive civil disobedience and defiance of this homo-fascist decision.

Whole libraries will soon be penned on all this. Let me cite a few authors who wrote before the decision, who knew full well what this would entail:

Mat Staver: We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross….
I am reminded of Martin Niemoeller, a German pastor and theologian during the Nazi reign of terror, who said: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
To paraphrase Martin Niemoeller in our own context: “First they came for the adoption ministry, but I did not speak out because I did not do adoptions. Then they came for the wedding photographer, but I did not speak out because I did not photograph weddings. Then they came for the baker, but I did not speak out because I was not a baker. Then they came for the florist, but I said nothing because I was not a florist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
This is not a call for lone believers to fall on their swords. It is a call for us to speak for each other, to stand together and to suffer together. Like Esther facing the unjust law of the Persian Empire, we must pray and then we must stiffen our spines. May God help us to remain faithful, whatever the cost.

Alan Keyes: What purports to be a movement for so-called homosexual “rights” is in fact intended to discard, once and for all, the idea of God-endowed unalienable rights, inherent in the Creator’s information of all human beings (i.e., our human nature). The transcendent authority of “the laws of nature and of nature’s God” is the source or origin from which certain natural penchants or inclinations derive their special claim of right. Without reference to it, as the authoritative first principle of unalienable right, the logic of democratic, republican self-government collapses.
This is so because the “consent of the governed,” from which governments are supposed to derive their just powers (according to the organic law of the United States), has no lawful authority but what derives from the common exercise of right that informs it.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairman for the USCCB Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage: Regardless of what happens at the end of this month, nothing the court says can change what marriage truly is and we will continue to promote and defend it.
“Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me” [Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn]. The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. We may have to suffer this lie about marriage in the law, but we must not participate in it or keep silent about it.

Robert George: Now we face the prospect of yet another Dred Scott-type decision—this time on the question of marriage. I say that, not because same-sex relationships are the moral equivalent of slavery—they are not—but because five justices seem to be signaling that they will once again legislate from the bench by imposing, without constitutional warrant, their own beliefs about the nature and proper definition of marriage on the entire country.
If that happens, the Republican Party, the Republican Congress, and a future Republican President should regard and treat the decision just as the Republican Party, the Republican Congress, and the Republican President—Abraham Lincoln—regarded and treated the Dred Scott decision. They should, in other words, treat it as an anti-constitutional and illegitimate ruling in which the judiciary has attempted to usurp the authority of the people and their elected representatives. They should refuse to treat and regard it as a binding and settled matter. They should challenge it legislatively and give the Supreme Court every opportunity to reverse itself—especially as new justices fill vacancies. And they should work to fill vacancies on federal courts at all levels with jurists who reject judicial usurpation and can be counted on to respect the scope and limits of their own constitutionally specified authority.

Robert Reilly: The homosexual movement will not succeed in the long run. Dream worlds do not last. They invariably turn into nightmares from which people eventually wake themselves. How long that takes and how much damage it incurs in the meantime will depend partly on us.
Reflecting on his experiences in Nazi Germany where he had been imprisoned, Heinrich Rommen wrote: “When one of the relativist theories is made the basis of a totalitarian state, man is stirred to free himself from the pessimistic resignation that characterizes these relativist theories and to return to his principles.” We have the means at hand to return to this country’s first principles: they are called “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” We need them now as much as did our Founders. Let us return to them forthwith – before it is too late.

Much more can be said. I am still in shock – not surprised, but still stunned, in heavy grief, and crying out to God for his vindication. Now more than ever we need real men and women disciples of Jesus Christ. The time is over for playing games, for following our trivial pursuits, for living at ease in Zion.

Now we are fully involved in a war whether we like it or not. And those who do not join in, or think they can just sit on the fence, have already declared their true hand: they are part of the other side, and are not on the Lord’s side.

Get ready for increased persecution in America and all over the West. The nearly 200 cases of this that I documented in my latest book is only the beginning. Now the going starts getting real tough. This is warfare of the most serious sort.

Ultimately it is a spiritual battle, and the SCOTUS decision comes straight out of the very pits of hell. Onward Christian soldiers. We have no more time to waste. We must pray like never before. We must work like never before. And we must get on our faces before Almighty God and repent of our damnable apathy, carelessness and indifference which made all this possible in the first place.

God have mercy on America. Or, if needed, bring on your just judgment.

  • The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalise same-sex marriage is as revolutionary a move as its landmark 1973 decision, in Roe v. Wade, to legalise the killing of the unborn.

    Evil has triumphed again, while a majority of Christian leaders have said little and done nothing.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I fear this weekend most Christians in America and Australia will continue to go about their business — shopping, taking the youngsters to sports and washing the car — and give little if any thought to what the U.S. Supreme Court decision portends for our future.

  • As a father of young children I dread how protective I am going to have to be into the future, to try and protect my little ones from this scurrilous behaviour.

    There is a link just recently posted where this guy does a hidden camera survey in the gay bars to find out how most of the gays encountered their first experience. It is horrible (the bragging and boasting of sexual conquests of innocent children) and makes me want to just wrap my kids in cotton-wool.

    But no, as a Christian I think it more important to teach my children about the world, discerning its evils, and try to encourage my kids not to taste of it. I cannot understand Christians who think it’s okay to just dump kids in a secular world without critical and discerning hearts. Actually I do: they thinks its okay to be naive. It’s been said to me, “separation of church and state”.

    Well, duh, we all still have to share the public sphere, and when it is overrun by that which is deviant…so help me God. I beg for mercy and wisdom from the most-Holy Lord.

    Warning! The detail is graphic. I couldn’t watch it all.

    http://mobile.wnd.com/2015/06/hidden-camera-gays-admit-theyre-not-born-that-way/

  • Hi Bill, is it fair to share that I feel a despair settling in my heart at this news. I will need to spend much time in prayer tonight, and seek much comfort from our Lord.

    I will need to spend many years in prayer for my children. I will to spent many years teaching them to not be hypnotised by the World; to put their trust and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ; to critique and discern the world with eyes opened by our Lord.

  • Thanks Matt. We all should feel despair – I do. And we all should pray like mad. This is far more serious than most people realise – even most Christians.

  • If Gay Marriage becomes LAW in Australia – then Christian Adoption Agencies will be forced to hand over babies to gay dads! Look up OW & OV vs Wesley City Mission at the NSW NCAT SuperTribunal (not a court – legally speaking).

    After 8 years of litigation from 2002 – 2010 by 2 gay dads at the churches own own cost fought against them. First being found guilty of not supplying babies to a demographic… (just google “pubmed homosexuality pedophilia” and make your own conclusions from the US Library Of Congress’ most cited medical study on the topic) …. The ADB/NCAT first ruled that Christians must supply babies to gay dads. Then on appeal – they argued they can lawfully discriminate against UNMARRIED COUPLES. When Gay Marriage becomes law the consequences all Christian Adoption Agencies that are not for increasing child rape statistics must shut down! PROOF THAT IT IS TAXPAYER FUNDED LAWYERS HELPING GAY DADS TAKE BABIES FROM CHRISTIANS: (Hint search @KateHumanRights on twitter and VGB blog is the taxpayer @PIACNews funded lawyer involved in this case and other travesties of justice)

    The head of Australian Marriage Equality is Rodney Croome. Look at his latest venture – suing all Christian Schools in Tasmania for not supporting gay marriage.

  • Bill: A few observations apart from the Biblical and theological…(1) Biologically, sodomy is a personal and social dead end. It performs no useful biological activity. Because the male arse is easily perforated it becomes a medical hell and gateway to dozens of diseases–many deadly. (2) Sodomy is also a negative to Darwin’s theory of evolution. Darwin’s theory survives on natural selection and survival of the fittest. Everything sodomites practice deny both tenets of evolution. (3) Of course, abortion, charity, and the welfare state are also contrary to Darwinianism. (4) Question…why aren’t the biological scientists speaking out? David A. Noebel

  • Yes quite right David.

  • This is a very dark day in the States, and Australia won’t now be far behind. Like never before we will have to handle splits in our families, friendships and Christian fellowships even where our daily lives ‘go on as usual’, as it is imperative we who believe God’s truths for humanity don’t stay silent. Christians have to think through their stand before God and man. We have the next generation to raise in a society where wrong is called right, mixed in with the residue of laws where right is called right – a minefield for developing young world views. Bill thank you for bringing us information and encouraging our awareness in these areas.

  • Maybe biological scientists assess that the percentage of the population which will die out through same sex inability to procreate is too small to threaten the survival of the species? That the fittest (heterosexuals) will be the ones having their own children at a faster rate than those who have to manipulate getting some from elsewhere?

  • David

    But their response is also that it is far more common in the animal kingdom so therefore it is natural. What do u say in response?

  • This is, scary. This can only mean that more christians will compromise. I do believe that that more christian churches, with the leadership of their leaders will lead many to accept with open arms to this. 🙁 It is a motif of old testament history.
    “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them, O my people, they who lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths” (Isa.3:12 KJV).

    This is no more than leaven that is in the meal.
    A man’s house is surely is going to be divide against itself.

  • The answer to that is easy Damien:

    -This is nowhere near as prevalent as people claim.
    -Even so, so what? We are not animals.
    -Animals sometimes also kill and/or eat their young – should we as well then?
    -Neither humans nor animals can continue to survive in homosexuality – nature designed us to continue by heterosexual reproduction.

  • Humanly speaking,there is only one solution and that is military action; and though this is clearly unrealistic; it is the only solution.
    Those who were trying to tear down the walls of Jerusalem whilst Nehemiah was trying to build them up; the Danes who were out to rape, burn and pillage across Britain; King John who thought to use England as his own property; Charles 1st who thought to enslave the British population under Catholic domination; the British government who thought likewise to enslave the American people;
    the deep Southern, Catholic States of America who kept Africans in slavery and Ernst Roehm and Hitler who thought to dominate the whole World……none of these were persuaded by reason, petitions, lobbying or “reaching out in lurrvve”. The only thing they understood was force of arms.

    Teresa May, the UK Home Secretary, whilst speaking at an event hosted by Stonewall, spoke
    about how incredibly proud that she and the Home Office were, to have come top of 2010’s Stonewall Workplace Equality Index:

    “I think that shows how far we, as a society, we have come…..As a country we have come a long way….as a party, my own party, the Conservatives have come a long way. We now have more openly gay MPs and openly gay ministers than ever before ….We’ve come a long way……despite the real progress we have seen in recent years, there is much still to do….despite the real progress
    we have seen in recent years, there is much still to do…..And we will go further…We are committed to taking action to tear down these barriers….”

    The same serving of notice of intent to tearing down any remaining barriers, protecting marriage, family and human life itself was proudly repeated recently by the present UK Secretary of State for Education, Nicky Morgan (who also professes to be a Christian), when addressing Stonewall:

    “…. the contribution of LGBT people….. incredible role models….I’m proud …..truly momentous strides…..some of the proudest achievements of this government ….. a measure of just how far we have come…. significant strides… So there is still a lot of work to be done….. we need to make
    more progress…”

    Already the Transgenders believe their absolute human rights gives them carte blanche to
    behave however they wish. They are free to deceive, lie, slander and sexually abuse others with impunity. By all means let us use the pen and prayer, but ultimately military action is the only thing that can once more establish a measure of sanity, authority, security, justice, righteousness and freedom of conscience, before the Lord returns for the final showdown.

    But this can only be established upon Biblical Truth. as it was with Nehemiah, Alfred the Great, Bishop Stephen Langton, Oliver Cromwell, the American Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln and King George V1 when he summoned Britain to national days of prayer during World War11.
    The Constitution was made only for a people who acknowledged the Judeo Christian faith; but the passions, idolatries, lusts and ambitions of those who march to a different drummer, have driven through the American Constitution, the Magna Carta and the perfect law of God (as John Adams, the second US President aptly said) “as a whale goes through a net.”

    Already the military [1] and police have become symbols of gay oppression and march in London and Manchester Gay Pride Parades [2] Clearly they are no longer impartial, but have crossed the line to threaten anyone who opposes the gay juggernaut. When our own armed forces risk their lives, invading other countries to establish so – called democracy and freedom, we need to tell them that the enemy is not oversees but here in the home country.

    We need to disabuse the mockers and scoffers that we do not follow the Jesus of John Lennon or the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence [3] We must destroy the gay juggernaut before it destroys us, for surely it will if we continue to walk backwards.
    But having lost our Christian roots, moral courage and martial vigour, perhaps all we can do, like Jeremiah, is to chronicle our decline into the barbarism from which we came, two thousand years ago. And perhaps such military action would be futile if in fact we are already under God’s Judgement as described in Deuteronomy 28 [4]

    Susan Anne White, a modern day Deborah, no matter what opinion we have on her views of rock music or potted plants, speaks with a clear tone that is unmistakeable [5]
    In the meantime we defend our children by whatever means we have at our disposal [6]

  • I suppose the ‘judges’ will have to change the motto on the dollar to ‘In God we don’t trust.’

  • The world has gone mad. I wonder if the path we are on started with the introduction of contraceptives? When the main focus of sex is pleasure and not the procreation of children, you can understand how people can rationalize crazed behaviour.

  • Dear Bill, I am so reviled and disgusted that so many faceless and I must say gutless clueless Christians have.stayed too silent on this the greatest single issue that has ever faced Society in past and present History. To deviate from God’s Laws of Nature was always going to be fraught with danger in regards to both Moral, Religious, Social and Liberal Freedoms and Values.

    We only have ourselves to Blame. No-one but ourselves chose inhumanity over humanity and respect for God’s Eternal Laws. Satan has underpinned His all out Onslaught on Man and Humanity on this one issue more than any others because He fore saw this as Society’s Achilles Heel. He knew Men would be reluctant to speak out when this issue involved Children, Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Aquaintences.

  • Bill, just read this reader’s comment on Breitbart…

    A Christian to a gay, […] I believe it is a sin and wish you would repent….

    A Muslim to a gay, I hate you for your sin, you must die.

    A Gay to a Christian, I hate you and demand you change your life and belief [about] me.

    A Gay to Muslum, ( silence )

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/06/26/scotus-declares-itself-god-redefines-marriage-and-rights/

  • “Gay” and “marriage” are opposite concepts. The proportion of same sex couples opting for marriage is significantly low. Their goal is something beyond marriage – probably not yet thought through, as the consequences of what they want do not bode well for children and future generations.

  • Thanks Bill,
    The battle is already lost. It’s only a matter of time before it happens here too. Christian protests and petitions can, at best, only delay the inevitable. We don’t seem to have the political clout. For decades now our society in general has been steadily moving away from the church and embracing the progressive lifestyle. All the warnings and protests by Christians are just falling on deaf ears.
    If the government redefines marriage, it doesn’t actually change marriage. Marriage was created by God and can’t be changed or hijacked. Society is on a Left trajectory, but like history teaches, there will be a correction, and often it is violent.
    But until there will be both historical biblical marriage, and political marriage (which is all about legislating minority groups to feel good). We are now officially on the outside and we may as well get use to it. Many Christians have been in a similar situation before.

    I read an interesting verse the other day:
    ‘A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.’ Ecclesiastes 10:2

    Thanks again Bill

  • It has started already the attack on free speech

    “As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will very strictly limit op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.
    These unions are now the law of the land. And we will not publish such letters and op-Eds any more than we would publish those that are racist, sexist or anti-Semitic.
    We will, however, for a limited time, accept letters and op-Eds on the high court’s decision and its legal merits.
    The march of progress is often slow, but it is always steady.
    On Friday, the United States took another step toward the ideal of equality envisioned by its founders. And we are all more free as a result.”

    how sad!!!!

  • Dear Bill,
    We will be in touch with you about coming up to see us hopefully in the next few weeks. The good people of our city will be making our voices heard about traditional marriage. God bless you and keep you my warrior soul,
    Anna von Marburg

  • To start the velvet revolution, all political candidates who are not Christian and against same sex marriage must not be voted but vetoed. We the people – the majority, still have that power and waiting any further may result in waited too long!

  • I have to wonder how long it will now be before the wrath of God truly falls on the U.S.A. Not long I feel.

  • How long before we suffer the same fate here? Too many so-called Christians either are for this, or don’t care.

  • The inevitable consequence of deconstructing God’s holy ordinance, marriage is that society will become destabilised and more violent. The signs of this are already apparent in Britain with reports of child molestation, domestic violence and a huge rise in sexually transmitted diseases.

    Romans 1 graphically describes the consequences of what happens to a society when it is given over to homosexuality. It is not just another sin but a sin that leads to all the others, culminating in a violent society.

  • When I heard it this morning my immediate reaction was, “how did unelected, activist judges get themselves into such a position of power as to overrule the will of voters in so many states of the US. Surely it must be unconstitutional.”

    When I went to my PC I received an e-mail from the AFA, describing the ruling as one of the most egregious overreaches of judicial power in the history of America, and inviting folk from wherever to join with concerned Americans in signing a petitions as follows:

    “To: All U.S. Congressmen and Senators

    We, the undersigned, believe that marriage can only be defined as the union of one man and one woman, and that this definition of marriage is the only definition that protects the rights of children, promotes the welfare of society, and corresponds with the will of God, human nature, and the truth about marriage itself.

    In imposing so-called same-sex “marriage,” the United States Supreme Court has arrogated power it does not rightfully possess and has ignored the will of the American people in the numerous states that have voted to protect true marriage.

    As such, I demand that you immediately respond to this egregious overreach of judicial power by passing a constitutional amendment reaffirming the true definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

    Sincerely,
    [Your name]”

    I have signed it and e-mailed it to my friends, the link is as follows:

  • We’ve had the stolen generation and had to apologise many years later. We’ve had the children in the Uk sent to Australia basically to work as hard as some builders. We’ve had Non Stop abortion. Next will be the Children of the Homosexual families brainwashed into believing that what they see of hear or possibly taught is normal.
    Couple that to the worst president in American History and a gay sympathiser and we can clearly seethe decline of humanity as it once was. Most Americans are good people but the powers that be are the sons of evil and many of the powerful women are the daughters of Babylon. The time is coming and now is when Christians must hold fast in what must surely be deemed the final Hour. The U.S says that Russia has broken a nuclear treaty Russia Says show us the proof. The new TPP agreement contains many rules that countries don’t understand specifically regarding sovereignty. Most of the countries signing up encircle the Eastern seaboard of China and Russia. The US says it is going to place more medium range missiles on Russia.s Western Border and no doubt they will find there way to these countries on the Eastern border. Encirclement and closeness reduce flying and warning time. The so-called Elite want population reduced to one billion people or less. Abortion, war and Gay rights along with the occasional pandemic will help achieve that.
    The US does not like Russian and Chinese efforts to form a separate monetary system they want total control using the US Dollar. I think the end is in sight for the Global governance push and that includes those countries that restrict Homosexual activities Albeit that is just a side issue. Really It doesn’t take a lot of savvy to connect the dots. However living under the current batch of tyrants has to end sometime, They have all the wealth and create the most perversion pollution and poverty. We must stand firm with or Lord
    For it Just may be that God is already working against that evil in a way we cannot see.

  • As an addendum to my recent writing. I ask people to remember that for Sodom and Gomorrah to be excised from the world the entire population of both cities were under Gods condemnation for their mass homosexual lifestyle and disease not just a few. How long did those people last before they succumbed or left??

  • I am longing to see God’s winning answer to this. He knows how to defeat Goliath!

  • There’s a beautiful reason why God created man and woman and a whole lot of meaningful purpose behind it …. even the animals don’t do this kind of unnatural thing .. surely those 5 of them have lost their sanity to push a whole nation and the whole world later on into trash…

  • Bill, this is indeed a very sad day for both USA and the western world. Thank you for continuing to fight and to warn as you do. Thank you for stirring the conscience of the church. Well may the words of 2 Chron. 7:14 ring in our ears and stir us to prayer and spiritual warfare on behalf of our own nation.

  • In Islam Sharia Law, the authority for Ijtih?d (decision making) is with the mufti, or Dar al-Ifta, Center of Rulings, which gives general rulings (fatw?, pl. fat?w?) about an incident or legal question. As scholars, they are able to look at the entire package of Islam and issue a ruling on the question at hand.
    In other words, an unelected bunch of Islamic clerics expert in the law can pass judgement on an issue which effects each and every Muslim’s. In the West we decry this as unrepresentative and un-democratic.
    I see no difference between this doctrine and the decision of SCOTUS. The have effectively issued a “fatwah” against the Judeo/Christian World.

  • “Biologically, sodomy is a personal and social dead end. It performs no useful biological activity. Because the male arse is easily perforated it becomes a medical hell and gateway to dozens of diseases–many deadly.”

    Indeed. One of my brothers-in-law who was a physician corrected me when I (I was young, single and ignorant) ignorantly opined that homosexuality was OK. He’d worked at St Vincent’s in Sydney and said most people never hear about the fecal incontinence that old homosexuals suffer from.

    Fecal incontinece – yucko!

    Do the homosexual activists in the various states’ education departments include this information about the long term effects of sodomy in their literature? I doubt it.

  • It’s as if the justices have issued a ruling to repeal the law of gravity.

  • Hello Bill!

    I am appalled by the decision to make it a law to recognise so-called gay marriage as being the same in every aspect as marriage between a man and a woman in every state of America.

    This is so wrong and beggars belief that even the President of the United States fails to recognise such a fundamental truth that marriage can only ever be between a man and a woman.

    So-called gay marriage is not and never will be a true marriage, no matter how many judges try to make it so.

    I for one will never accept so-called gay marriage.

    I believe that God as Creator of our universe ordained in his plan that we be either male or female and by that union we populate this planet.

    My prayer is that God gives me the strength and the courage to thank and praise Him for giving us such a wonderful plan and that I not be afraid to do so publicly.

  • It begs the question – is God going to lift his hand of protection and blessings off the US and if so, when?

  • It is quite possible he already has Ross.

  • As Mike Huckabee put it, “The Supreme Court can no more repeal the laws of nature and nature’s God on marriage than it can the laws of gravity.”
    The homosexual lobby has achieved, at best, a mere imitation of true marriage- they will only have a symbol. The reality of marriage. lies in the truth of it creator- remove the creator, all that remains are white-washed tombs and clanging temple bells. Its really very sad. or sure, they’ll get all the bling, the white robe, the ceremony, the rings and the piece of paper- but that’s all it will be. The blessings which come from a God-ordained union won’t eventuate.

  • Hi Bill and letter writers,

    I strongly believe that everything that opposes the will and mind of God should be cursed. So I would urge believers to pray that whatever it is that allows these 5 judges to continue to promote evil be cursed. If it is their health, their wealth, their influence, their popularity, their, sleep, their cars, their breath, their phones, their houses, their families, their friends, their education, their influence, their office or anything else that allows them to promote evil.
    Surely blessing is defined as bringing people close to God. Cursing is moving people away from God. If we keep silent, then we are approving of evil – that is a curse on our nation.
    We are in a battle, and the end is so very close. We need to pray like warriors.
    Sadly, most churches will keep silent, because offending people means less money in the collection.

  • Hi Bill, a dark and sad day in history it is, however I believe how ‘true’ christians respond to this is truly important. Will we simply continue to ‘dialogue’ about this or will we take some form of action? There needs to be a response from us that says ‘we will not accept the lies any longer’, whether that response receives a favorable outcome or not is irrelevant. God wants to see if His people have zeal for the Lord, the same zeal Jesus showed us when He cleared the temple of the money changers, the same zeal Elijah spoke of in 1 Kings.

    Our political leaders need to hear from us that we oppose SSM and in a big way. A rally in front of parliament perhaps, letter writing, we need to speak up, but of course there will be a cost, but how much greater will the cost be when we face our Creator and He asks us ‘what did you do’?

  • There is certainly a need for civil disobedience here.

    One of my first thoughts was that the US needs another civil war, and David Skinner hints at that idea.

    On second thoughts the taking up of arms is not a solution to this problem yet.

    Massive civil disobedience is the way to go, but it needs to be flagged as a decided response ahead of time. If we are only disobedient when we are personally challenged then we will be picked off one by one. Somehow we need to be disobedient together, perhaps by standing with someone who has or will face a challenge.

    As for me, my Fed, MP has asked for my opinion about things. I will reply that SSM should not approved in Australian law, and that I will be a conscientious objector if it is brought in, and that I will be civilly disobedient over this issue.

  • Hi Bill

    Possibly so.

    There is an alarming article on Joel Rosenberg’s blog:

  • Hi Bill

    I must have made a mistake – it is the second one.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Brother and Sisters in Christ Jesus, the days are here. God is separating the sheep from the goats. The Lord Jesus spoke, unless we repent we will likewise perish. So the choice now is that we repent or perish! Matthew 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. 14 For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Nrsv. Friends I have been on this journey for 25 years, and it has been a very lonely road. God never condones sin, he calls all Christian and non Christian alike, to repent, grace has been given to us for a time, A TIME TO REPENT! God gives grace only to the humble, but resist those who will not submit to His will. Punishment will fall on impenitent people no matter who they are. God’s Lictors will punish those who oppose the Kingdom of God. God’s wrath is kindled against those who practice sin. Sodom and Gomorah were visited by God’s Lictors to punish the people because of their wickedness. His angels of punishment LICTORS OF GOD, are and have punished sinners in the past and present, and will continue to do so in the future. The book of Romans 1:18-2:16 THE GUILT OF HUMAN KIND/ THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT OF GOD. Friends, God has given us time, this time is called grace. Grace is only for the the repentant. Those who do not repent will perish, Sorry, no other way, repent or perish. God watch over the souls of the righteous. Psalm 141 PRAYER FOR PRESERVATION FROM EVIL. God be with you on your journey, kind regards Ross Scrivener

  • IF the Law is ‘an ass’, could it be because some judicial decisions are asinine?
    The bottom line remains: It is neither wise nor healthy to play in a sewer.

  • The courts did not make real marriage, so they have no right to change it. God will punish them in His time. The judges made a bad decision and I strongly oppose it.
