According to Government "news" reports, Thousands of "Liberal" "Christians" and Africans gathered in Long Beach Friday to celebrate a landmark Big Government high Court decision that affirmed the right of two persons of the same SEX to "marry" in California.

Since the revolution, the problem has been that Government "news" writers take liberties through the loose use of language by using that language in such manner so as to fit their political ideology rather than to report fact. Take, for example, the use of the commonly understood word "Christian". The Children often ask me if translations of the Bible which are faithful to original writings are not the best source material to determine what is Christian and what is not Christian. I always reply "Yes", and I provide them examples. For example, it is written in the Christian Bible:

"Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:" (Jude 1:1)

"Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied." (Jude 1:2)

"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." (Jude 1:3)

"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ." (Jude 1:4)

"I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not." (Jude 1:5)

"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day." (Jude 1:6)

"Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." (Jude 1:7)

"Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities." (Jude 1:8)

"Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee." (Jude 1:9)

"But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves." (Jude 1:10)

"Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core." (Jude 1:11)

I've been a member of The United Church Of Christ (UCC) since 1996, and a born-and-baptized Lutheran for more than 50 years.

The 2 denominations I belong to, ELCA & UCC, BOTH allow gay and lesbian clergy and gay marriage in the church.

Exactly! Since the revolution, Big Government occupiers **(now in power)** have used unbelievable amounts of hard earned taxpayer money to "educate" the children in Big Government controlled schools. The result is that the kiddies are so confused they are unable to make up their minds as to whether they will "choose" to become a man or a woman.

In the old days it would have been simple. When I was a kid, the Government teachers would begin every class day with a reading of the scriptures. One of my favorite readings comes to mind:

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1:1)

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." (Genesis 1:26)

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27)

"And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man." (Genesis 2:22)

"And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." (Genesis 2:23)

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis 2:24)
