Should Same-Sex Marriages Be Legalized Nationally?

You may have heard all of the reasons it should be legalized.  However, I wish to approach it from a different perspective.  Before you read any further my opinion is it should not be.

From a democratic standpoint, 56% of those polled believe it should be legalized.  If you read newspapers, watch TV news or search the internet you will find every reason imaginable to agree that it should be legal.  However, there is one reason, rarely mentioned, for it not being accepted legally.  What does God think about it?

Ezekiel 22:7 – 15 –  “Fathers and mothers are treated with contempt. Foreigners are forced to pay for protection. Orphans and widows are wronged and oppressed among you.  You despise my holy things and violate my Sabbath days of rest.  People accuse others falsely and send them to their death. You are filled with idol worshipers and people who do obscene things. Men sleep with their fathers’ wives and have intercourse with women who are menstruating.  Within your walls live men who commit adultery with their neighbors’ wives, who defile their daughters-in-law, or who rape their own sisters.  There are hired murderers, loan racketeers, and extortioners everywhere. They never even think of me and my commands, says the Sovereign Lord.   But now I clap my hands in indignation over your dishonest gain and bloodshed.  How strong and courageous will you be in my day of reckoning? I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will do what I said.  I will scatter you among the nations and purge you of your wickedness.”  Verse 31 – “So now I will pour out my fury on them, consuming them with the fire of my anger. I will heap on their heads the full penalty for all their sins. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”  NLT   Pick up the local newspaper and you are apt to read the above.  What is different between how Americans are living today and How the Israelites were living in Bible times?

Do we as a nation think of God and His commands stating that if we do the things He says we are not to do, He will punish us?  Do you see any difference as to what has happened to America in the past few years and where we are headed?  The devil wants us to think things are changing due to man–made climate change.  Could it be that God is giving punishment for the way we Americans are living?  Flooding, storms, tornadoes, wild fires, earthquakes and draughts are being more prevalent than normal.  We as a nation are having economic and debt problems.  It seems we are in a continual war situation with fear of a terrorist attack at any time.  Is it at all possible that God has withdrawn His blessings and protection?

So why are we not questioning if same-sex marriage is something that the Bible finds acceptable?  Just how much or how far do Americans want to reject God?  What is happening to a nation that once all law was predicated on Biblical principles and these principles were taught in our eastern universities?  When polls are taken and 85% of Americans say they believe in God, how can we get a poll where 56% say same-sex marriage should be acceptable?  They may believe there is a God they just choose to ignore Him.  Are you still wondering why America isn’t doing better?  When we debate same-sex marriages, why don’t we ask ourselves: “Will God approve?”  I guess it depends on what kind of a nation in which you may want to live.  Do you want blessings & protection or God’s wrath?
