UPHOLD TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

True marriage--that between one man and one woman--is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social instructions.

It is a relationship defined by nature and protected by the natural law that binds all men and women. It finds its foundation in the order of creation.

Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they create a right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage.

Marriage was established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and purpose that include the procreation and upbringing of new human lives.

Sadly, marriage has been reduced to another commodity in our culture.

In an age when children can be manufactured and grown in the body of a surrogate when they want--while millions are being aborted manufactured by the agencies of the civil government.

They are multiplying--while real rights, fundamental human rights, which have been endowed upon us by GOD, are being taken away, one after another.

When sexual behavior between two men or two women is viewed as providing a foundation for a new civil right to marry, the real common good of society is placed at risk.

When those who oppose this mistake are routinely characterized as bigots, overt persecution of the church is close at hand.

Let's pray that our justices of the U.S. Supreme Court will do theright thing for all Americans and uphold the traditional meaning of marriage.

S.Wright

I agree with this, lets not pander to a group of people who are dealing in sexual perversion and omit the Americans who are totally against this.

I've said before that many of my family members, friends and neighbors are either Liberal or Democrat and I don't consider them to be ignorant so I don't agree with the generalization.
On the other hand, there are a lot of far left extremists that think they know what's going on and don't have a clue.
Their information comes from a limited number of propaganda sites and sources. They listen to what they want to hear and they believe what they're told.
I still think that's the biggest problems the Democratic party has going forward. The far left is vocal, has been in control of the message and is seen almost universally as ignorant, intolerant and radical.
Until the Democrats can separate their public image from the extreme elements of their base they have a big problem.
You have extremes from both sides. Extremism has always been a bad thing. I happen to be a moderate Republican....something that I heard a Republican Congressman say doesn't need to be in their party or something along that line. People need to stop listening to those extreme voices so we can find consensus on our problems. We need to get the extremists out of our policy making. jmo

Media Mash: Chris Matthews Clueless About Domestic Violence, Blames Conservatives for Murders of Texas Prosecutors

By Ken Shepherd | April 05, 2013 | 11:29

Clueless Chris Matthews stepped into it this week when he expressed shock that women actually fear domestic violence. After watching the clip on the "Media Mash" segment on Fox News Channel's April 3 edition of Hannity, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell observed "It is a head scratcher because he spent all of last year and all of 2011 telling us that there was a war on women." [video embedded below the page break]

"He doesn't understand that there are -- in 2010, there were 765,000 cases documented of attacks on women. So suddenly he's oblivious to that," the Media Research Center founder observed. Host Sean Hannity also addressed the latest incident where Chris Matthews tried to tar conservatives with murderous violence, this time the slayings of prosecutors in Texas that may be connected to the Aryan Brotherhood. Responding to that video, Bozell observed:

Here's some of that ignorance I was talking about earlier.
All the president said was that what the government can do is limited by the second amendment which is exactly what so many of us have been trying to tell those of you that have been running around screaming "he's going to take our guns".
No he isn't, because we have the second amendment.
You should be thankful that he recognizes the limitations of government authority imposed by the constitution and stop with all the fear mongering.
Should be thankful that the duly elected President of the United States of America recognizes the rules set forth in the Constitution?

Smiley-Face Lies and Homicide Hogwash in Dem Hellholes
Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama push a liberal agenda as their city is awash in blood.

By Michelle Malkin

President Obama’s hometown of Chicago still goes by the old nickname “Windy City.” But after three miserable decades of strict gun control and permanent Democratic rule, Chicago has cemented its reputation as America’s Bloody City.

No amount of statistical whitewashing can cover up the stains of the Left’s ideological failures there. But as Obama continues to wage war on law-abiding gun owners, his home team is trying its hardest to spread smiley-face lies upon damned lies to downplay Chicago homicide statistics.

On Monday, April Fools’ Day, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police superintendent Garry McCarthy held a press conference to tout a “dramatic” drop in the city’s homicide rate. The headlines read:“March homicides drop dramatically in Chicago”(USA Today),“Murders fall 42 percent in America’s deadliest city: Chicago”(NBC News), and “March homicides drop 69 percent in Chicago”(Las Vegas Sun).”

Emanuel trumpeted the drop as a “good sign.” He hyped statistics to the Associated Press showing that first-quarter 2013 murders in Chicago are tied with numbers from the same time period in 2009. Murders decreased 69 percent compared with the same month last year; first-quarter homicides fell by 42 percent compared with the same time frame last year. Emanuel insisted:“We are clearly having an impact on the homicides.”

But it’s all in how you slice, dice, and spin it, of course.

Now you have professed to be a Christian do you feel it's your place to be judging anyone?

It isn't our job nor is it our right to judge others.
A study of the concordance will show that there are more references in Scripture to the anger, fury, and wrath of God, than there are to His love and tenderness.36

The wrath of God is an attribute of God as much a part of God as any other attribute, an attribute without which God would be less than God:

Now the wrath of God is as much a Divine perfection as is His faithfulness, power, or mercy. It must be so, for there is no blemish whatever, not the slightest defect in the character of God; yet there would be if ‘wrath’ were absent from Him!37

If we are going to discuss the wrath of God, we must first define it.

Definition of WRATH

: strong vengeful anger or indignation

: retributory punishment for an offense or a crime[sodomy IS in there]: divine chastisement

Hey WA.
You're right about what the issue here actually is.
What I don't understand is why some of these people seem to be focused on what few financial benefits there may be while completely ignoring the legal and financial obligations and responsibilities that would come with full recognition too.
Just one example would be debt incurred as a couple.
Right now, if one of us got sick and piled up huge medical bills, the other could simply say "you don't recognize our marriage, so the state can pick up the bill. He can't pay it and you can't make me pay his bills."
And that's just one scenario.
The argument that the fight for equality is somehow about financial gain falls apart when you start to consider the enormous responsibilities that also come with being a married couple and we are more that willing to accept those responsibilities in exchange for the equal protections we are guaranteed as American citizens in the first place.
(Took a late lunch. Time to get back to work.)
Hi Jax
Yes it is about equality. As to the benefits of marriage they are many. Those rights are given to some of the people but not to all of the people again unequality. There are responsibilities that go along with marriage. But that isn't the reason most of those that don't want marriage between same sex couples. It really doesn't have the benefits or responsibilities. It's more Bibical in nature. But our laws have a separation of Church and state even if those that only want the parts that protect them to be acknowledged. It's funny when it effects another well now let's just step back and think about this. To me there is nothing to think about it's an Americans right to marry between two consenting adults the person they love and want to make a commitment with.

Conclusion:
The Implications of Divine Wrath
The first and most obvious implication of the biblical doctrine of divine wrath is that sinners

desperately

need to repent of their sin and place their trust in Christ,

who bore God’s wrath for their sin at Calvary. Let me make it more personal.

Have your sins been forgiven, or is the wrath of God your fate?

The solution is as simple as acknowledging your sin and trusting in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in your place.

God’s wrath is not an embarrassment to Him. He need never be ashamed, like men, for losing His temper. God’s wrath is inseparably linked with His glory. God brings glory to Himself when He exercises His wrath.

God’s wrath is provoked when men rebel against His Word. After God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, He gave them His laws to guide and govern their conduct so they might be a holy people in whose midst He would dwell. In Deuteronomy 28:1-14, God described the blessings which would result from obedience to the covenant He made with them at Mount Sinai. Verses 15-68 provide a much more extensive and graphic description of His judgment as a consequence of breaking this covenant. In the context of Deuteronomy 28, it is clear that Israel will not keep His covenant and that they will be judged. God will not tolerate sin among His people any more than He will tolerate it in others. The Israelites were destined to drink deeply from the cup of God’s wrath.

There is an estimate welfare/food stamp and disable (a large percentage not even disable--fraud claims), etc. 90 million people in America.

This is almost 1/3 of the Americans, count another 1/3 as children and teens which equals to 1/3 of our citizens who are working to pay for the 2/3 who are not.

My niece just loss her welfare because her youngest is 18 y/o, she went and applied for disability, nothing wrong and her. Her diagnosis is "Fatigue Syndrome." She is active, always on the go, even travels with boy friend, swims, hikes, etc. She didn't even need a lawyer, they approved her disability saying one of her blood levels was a little elevated.

So, she has gone from 20 years on welfare with her oldest being 20 y/o to collecting disability and always having a man in the house...she goes thru boyfriends real fast.

This is the scam from what she was saying, when the welfare is almost over with due to kids are now grown, women will go and apply for disability---no problem.

Homosexuality is something that one is born with. Rather like anyother physical condition. Does God hate those with physical problems...I don't think so. Why would God hate those that are homosexual. God has showned that promiscuity is offensive.
But really it doesn't matter about any of that for our discussion. Bottom line is it's Christs right to judge not ours. Bottom line is homosexuals have the same freedoms in this Country as do heterosexuals. Bottom line is Constitutionally they are beind deprived of rights that are given to others. Those are the issues when it comes to our laws.

I Take Offence!

I take offence at the suggestion commonly made by religious legalists that the gospel of God’s free grace in Christ, salvation by grace alone, without works, leads to **licentiousness. Such an accusation greatly impugns the Person and work of God the Holy Spirit, our Teacher and Guide. Can the Holy Ghost lead a believer into licentiousness? Such an accusation greatly impugns our dear Savior, as Jude puts it,“turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ!”
~Don Fortner

Definition of LICENTIOUS

1
: lacking legal or moral restraints; especially : disregarding sexual restraints
2
: marked by disregard for strict rules of correctness

Rush Limbaugh gives iPad to 13-year-old climate skeptic
By Ben Geman - 04/04/13 05:18 PM ET

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is giving an iPad to a 13-year-old who said he found evidence that human-induced global warming is a hoax through books at a local library.

“It was really easy for me to find this evidence, really easy,” said Alex, who called in to Limbaugh's show from Wilmington, Ind.“I believe the reason that the liberals do not have the evidence is because they do not want the evidence, they do not want to hear that it is wrong.”

After Alex told Limbaugh that he went to the local library, Limbaugh replied:“I am surprised you find evidence of this at a library. That is heartening.” Limbaugh told Alex that if his parents agreed, he would send him an iPad.

“If there is anybody who would put one of those things to good use, that would be you, and it is light, it is portable, you can take it anywhere you want to go,” Limbaugh said. After getting permission, noted he was sending the device.

“I guarantee you there are people who heard that call that want to find out where that library is that he found evidence of the hoax of global warming, so they can tell the authorities about it,” Limbaugh told his listeners after talking with Alex.

The scientific consensus is that the planet is warming and human activities are a major driver, but a very small minority of scientists hold other views.

I was watching the local news last night when Obama appears on a platform in front of a mic and of course his ever so talented teleprompter.

Although, what caught my eye was Mitch McConnell on stage with him, smiling like a jacka$$ and looking mummified and adoringly up at Obama.

What the crap.

Its like the movie "The Body Snatchers."
