Defense of Marriage Act – HR3396: (1996) To define and protect the institution of marriage; `In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word `marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word `spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.’
The Human Rights Campaign called on the president to repeal DOMA, saying ‘it is time for you to use your leadership to translate these principles into meaningful action.’ House Democrats introduced legislation last month that would overturn DOMA. And of course, the Gay Agenda has their version, or fiction, of ‘marriage’ – the Respect for Marriage Act. Sounds nice, eh? Sounds so normal and almost soccer mom-ish, doesn’t it? Well, it’s Respect for SAME SEX Marriage – only.
The bill (Respect for Marriage Act, HR 3567) would repeal all three sections of DOMA – which federally defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman – including section 1, which is the name; section 2, which instructs states not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states; and section 3, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing legally performed same-sex marriages.
Essentially what the gay community wants, according to the RMA and Rep. Barney Frank, is recognition of their legal marriage in a state where same sex marriage is not legal in order to gain access to federal and state money and spousal benefits – along with defining legal marriage with ‘persons’, not a man and woman.
However, as I had reported just last week, a ‘couple’ moved to Texas and filed for divorce. Legally, same sex marriage is not recognized in Texas which would make their request null and void. Of course, they are taking steps to repeal instead of going back to the state where they got ‘married’ to get divorced.
Mark 10:6-9 says, in the words of Jesus Christ – v6 ‘But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ v7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. v9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’ –NKJV-
Jesus emphasizes that marriage, as a permanent relationship between a man and a woman, goes back to God’s purpose at the beginning of creation. His purpose being that married couples bear children; Genesis 1:27-28. Nowhere in Scripture was artificial insemination or IVF mentioned to populate the Earth for same sex couples. The gay community can do all they want to overturn traditional marriage, and there’s a chance that it may come to pass…but know this: God does not change; He will never change His mind about the sin of homosexuality or that marriage is between a man and woman so that they may ‘be fruitful and multiply to replenish the Earth’.
Man + Woman = Children. Period.
