Our culture has gone nuts over love, saying that if two people really love one another—even if the two are same gender―they should be allowed to marry, for that is their civil right. This argument is so convoluted that one hardly knows where to begin.
First, this makes love the definition of law, or in modern terms, love defines morality, which means that if two people say they love one another, even though they are gay, we must allegedly accept that. But God states the opposite: His law defines love:
8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:8-10 NKJ).
Thus, God’s law, especially as given in the Ten Commandments, defines what love is. Love is not committing adultery, which includes same sex unions. Love is not bearing false witness, and politicians with their negative ads make a career out of breaking that commandment. Love is being satisfied with what we have, not in coveting, and politicians cater to such, promising more goodies so they can get more votes, and so on. Indeed, love without law is permission to do anything, even for a sister to marry one’s sister, or a man to marry one’s dog, for love defines morality.
Second, breaking God’s Seventh Commandment regarding sexuality is allegedly one’s civil right. Such immorality is being compared to the Civil Rights movement spearheaded by the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., but as many black ministers in Memphis, TN recently stated, right after Obama said homosexuals had the right to marry, “We did not march one foot with Dr. King to give people the right to same sex marriage, the right to destroy the family.” Amen. Those who tolerate everything do not stand for anything. Destruction of marriage is no more a civil right than murder, for the same Ten Commandments deny both; indeed, the Seventh Commandment to have one man and one woman in marriage is next door to the Sixth Commandment not to murder. It is not a civil right to promote GLBT, but it is moral discernment to oppose such. If we use the argument of reductio ad absurdum (taking things to their logical conclusion), then if everyone became gay, the human race would disappear in one generation. AMEN.
