I've smudged out the word freedom in this graphic taken from the webpage of the forces pushing sodomy acceptance on Maine.
It is important for Maine people to understand that this movement has nothing to do with freedom. It is all about changing the definition of words. We will be writing about that extensively on this website, God willing.
They -- as everyone knows -- started by stealing the good word "gay." They reasoned that the public could be fooled into thinking of homosexuality as a "gay" condition because homosexuals are creative and smart people. Over decades of using the carrot and the stick they've herded many people into believing this lie.
They are creative and smart people. That isn't the lie.
The lie is that they are happy, satisfied, full of joy and mirth. They are the most vicious and hateful people I've ever dealt with in my life. And we all know it, if we'd take half-a-minute to turn off the boob tube and think.
The advocates of sodomy based relationships are the furthest thing from "gay" I've ever encountered.
I digress. This article is about freedom.
They argue that society will be more free if the civil institution of marriage is opened up to include citizens who love sodomy more than life itself. Is this true? Will society be more free, or less free, if marriage is redefined in this way? I will argue that it will be less free. This political process of redefinition is, in fact, already silencing Christians, Jews, Muslims ... indeed all Americans who object to so-called same sex "marriage."
First, we must ask ourselves, "What is sodomy?" Most of us think of it as vile and unspeakable. So, we won't go there.
For the purposes of this campaign I will argue that sodomy is the improper use of the God-given biological instruments of sex for the purpose of pleasure. Essentially, sodomy is making pleasure the object of sex. I realize this is over broad. I will, however, argue that it is not too much of a stretch.
Marriage will always be what it is, no matter how the society chooses to define it. Marriage is a lifetime commitment to someone of the opposite gender for the purpose of creating multi-generational bonds of blood. No amount of politiking and legal jibber jabber is going to change that. This proper definition is written on the heart of every lesbian and "gay" man on the planet. It is hard-wired into the DNA of humanity.
The reason freedom is destroyed by this movement is because it succeeds by separating humanity from itself -- it breaks hearts in two and creates the need for force to maintain order.
This is becoming obvious to more and more Americans everyday.
It is loving for a government to make people free to pay the price for their sins. It is tyranny to say there is no such thing as sin. Sex outside the bonds of holy matrimony is a sin -- it is immoral, evil and wrong. A society that does not maintain and enforce this law of nature and nature's God will die. It is only a matter of time.
There is such a thing as the "freedom to marry." Every citizen is free to marry someone of the opposite gender. It is not freedom to say that every man is free to marry every other man. That is just weird. And the consequence of creating such a "freedom" is obvious -- it will lead to much hurt, pain and social unrest over time.
You can see that already with the growing ferocity of atheist ideals in connection with this heart-breaking definition of freedom. Christians are routinely discriminated against now. They are ostracized, fired and ridiculed. And all of this is carried off in the name of tolerance.
That is a subject for another article ... tolerance.
