Marriage Under Attack

Today, a judge in California decided that it was unconstitutional to pass a law saying that marriage must be between one man and one woman.  If you didn't realize that the institution of marriage is under attack, in our times, please wake up and pay attention!  Why is marriage under attack?  Because we live in a selfish, hedonistic society.  We don't want to be told that there is something we cannot do.

When did this begin?  Many will say it was when contraception became acceptable.  Once sex was removed from child bearing, the next step began to remove sex from marriage.  Once sex was removed from marriage, it didn't seem like marriage was so necessary to carry on our culture, so we can now call marriage whatever we want to.

Who loses in this battle?  First and foremost the children.  Every child has a right to a father and a mother.  Sometimes there are unfortunate circumstances that deny the child this benefit, such as a death in the family.  However, when two adults decide to get together and call their relationship a marriage, whether they are both female or both male, they are putting their own needs before those of the children.

But is it surprising considering how we treat children in our society today?  We subject them to sex education at tender ages in order to indoctrinate them into our hedonistic beliefs.  We terminate their lives in the womb if they prove to be inconvenient to us.  We subject them to inappropriate television shows and films.  We essentially deprive them of their right to a carefree childhood.  Why?  For our own benefit.  Because denying them these things might mean we should deny ourselves, as well.  And we don't want to deny ourselves any supposed pleasure, even if it is ultimately harmful.

Now we have a judge weighing in against the vote of the people of California and deciding as our "black robed master" that the people cannot define marriage in the way it has been defined since the beginning of time.  That to say marriage can only be between a man and a woman is unconstitutional.  If we don't get our act together and make our voices heard in defense of the institution of marriage, we are heading for some very, very bad times in our sick society.

Please go to the website for the National Organization for Marriage and get involved now.  We need to get our society back on the right track, for the sake of our children and our future.
