Maine Voters Defeat Gay Marriage Law
In a stunning defeat of the homosexual lobby, Hollywood, the liberal Main Stream Media, Demoncrats, and the State Legislature of Maine, voters defeated the Gay Marriage law with a 53% vote to overturn it. 31 out of 31 states that have brought Gay Marriage to the voters have voted against gay marriage.
The first lesson to be learned is that the average American from Maine to California, does not want gay marriage. Our judges and legislators, Congressmen and Senators, Governors and Presidents need to get a clue. Maine and California are nowhere near conservative states, yet they still voted down the gay agenda. This is not due to large amounts of money, nor is it due to control of the media. The gays invest more money and they do have the major media on their side. Certainly both sides are passionate about their positions. It boils down to the fact that from one end of the country to another, America does not want gays to marry.
Why is that? In the article linked to above you see this quote:
“I’m ready to start crying,” said Burnett, a 58-year-old massage therapist, walking out of the ballroom with Swanson at her side. “I don’t understand what the fear is, why people are so afraid of this change.
“It hurts. It hurts personally,” she said. “It’s a personal rejection of us and our relationship, and I don’t understand what the fear is.”
According to the person interviewed above, Americans are “afraid” of this change. Fear is the reason given by some gays as to why straight America does not want gay marriage. For other gays, I am sure their is a belief that it is hatred of gays that keeps straights from voting for gay marriage. But both of these stated reasons are wrong and reveal more about the inner motives of the gays themselves.
Gays need to understand straights here. We do not want gay marriage because we know that it goes against God’s law, against nature, is harmful to society because it automatically cheapens and harms marriage. To allow gays special privileges to marry harms us, takes something away from us, and weakens marriage in general.
How so? Gays have the right to marry already, just marry the opposite sex like everyone else. To claim that you deserve to marry whomever you want, i.e., a person of the same sex, lowers the bar of marriage by redefinition. If we make it legal to marry “whoever”, then obviously those who want plural marriage will be next in line. People involved in some fundamentalist sects of the LDS church want to have multiple wives. Some businessmen who travel extensively like to have a woman in each state. Polyamory folk like threesomes and more. What about the LGBT crowd that includes bi-sexuals? By definition don’t Bi’s like more than one person to love? If you bend/break the definition of marriage for gays don’t you logically have to do it for all these others? Historically, having multiple wives is more valid than gay marriage anyway. Ask any muslim. Will we allow all muslim men to have the standards 4 wives now?
Gays just are refusing to acknowledge that they want “Special Rights” not Equal Rights. And they use the terminology of “Fear” against the pro-family crowd in a deliberate smear technique rather than being honest.
Imagine if gays win this argument, as they have in Massachusetts and Iowa, what will that do to the school textbooks that small children are REQUIRED to use? Do you think that there just might be stories for first graders about Jenny and her Two Mommies? or Peter and his Two Daddies? Maybe even some math “word problems” involving gay couples just as part of a math problem to make it look normal?
What is likely to happen? The gays will never give up, they own the education and entertainment elites and the news media as well as most politicians. The votes by the people are close, no more than 10 point spreads. In 5-10 years they will win one of these votes. Then another. And another. A few court cases here and there, then a SCOTUS case that will use the 14th Amendment to apply one state’s law to all the states.
After that, the court cases against churches and ministries will be a stampede and churches will be forced to marry gays, hire gays, and not exercise church discipline on gays.
The only way this will be stopped is if God sends a Holy Spirit Revival that will lead to a Reformation in our society that will change people’s hearts and lead to a change in the laws to, once again, force gays into the background instead of in the mainstream.
I am not saying that I want to see a society where gays are persecuted or harassed by the police. The last thing I want is the state police snooping in people’s bedrooms. I trust the State less than I trust gays. If a company wants to hire gays, fine. I really do not think schools ought to have gay teachers or administrators; schools ought to have moral (if not Christian) teachers. Does that mean I think gay behavior is immoral? You betcha’! I think that any community that elects a gay to a public office is an immoral community. But I don’t think it should be against the law. Gay Public Displays of Affection- yeah, that is gross and ought to get a ticket. Gay Days at Disney Land- the public outcry ought to shut that down, but otherwise it is somebody’s private property and they can have GAy Day if they want to.
But Gay Marriage…no way. That is the State sanctioning that which the Bible says is an abomination. Not on my watch!
Here is an interesting piece by Charles Winecoff over at BigHollywood.
He gets some things right and makes some astounding claims, but his basic premise that we straights would be fine with a civil union for gays, THAT INCLUDES ALL THE LEGAL PRIVILEGES OF MARRIAGE WITHOUT THE NAME, is flawed. To give the same social benefits and status to gay civil unions as to marriage, yet not calling in marriage, is a farce. Again, you are simply redefining marriage. Nice try, but I ain’t buyin’ it!
