Like anyone with a quarter of a brain, for a number of years I’ve been loathing the social agenda of the total annihilation of the institution of marriage. This agenda (it seems to me) has quite logically been pressed by the homosexuals and other sexual perverts. The funny (read: exceedingly sad) thing is that a very small percentage of sexual deviants has influenced (read: duped) so many in our culture. It’s the ol’ I’m-not-gay-or-anything-but-I-think-that-people-should-be-able-to-marry-whomever-they-want routine. It’s a lame routine. It would be really easy for us to point our fingers at these folks who support “gay marriage” and say that they are responsible for the destruction of marriage in our time. That accusation and the associated finger-pointing, however, would be misguided.
Who is responsible for the destruction of marriage? At whom should we point our fingers and toward whom should be unleash might imprecations? Quite simply, at ourselves. Christians are to blame. One of the primary columns on which our culture rests is all but destroyed because (generally speaking) Christians SUCK BIG TIME at marriage. I don’t want to spend time now going into the particulars. Suffice it to say that Christian men need to focus on loving their wives as Christ loved his church and (for starters) leave off secret sexual sins (pornography, masturbation, etc) selfishness (obsession with TV, sports, Facebook, and other distractions). When Christian men repent of being bad husbands, we will see the church of Jesus Christ leading (by example) our culture back toward a healthy, culture-building practice of marriage and family. Brothers, let us repent of our sins, press hard into Christ, and seek his grace to serve him faithfully as men, husbands, fathers, workers and worshipers. May God grant this to his church in our day.
Okay, back to the homos: I was listening to the Michael Medved Show a few years ago. He had a homo on his show who was defending “gay marriage.” One of his defensive tactics was to pretend that the opening up of marriage to homosexuals was isolated, that is, that it was not part of a slippery slope. Any connection that callers would make between homos getting “married” and what would most certainly follow from that was derisively dismissed with the mere wave of his limp wrist. Well, I ran across a few stories yesterday that show what a ZOO has ensued in the following years. I am sure that hundreds of similar stories could be marshaled (please link to them in the comments).
In case you were so childish to think that ideas are not connected, get a gander at this story about a woman who “married” herself in Taiwan as a protest. (There is a video at this link that I’ve not watched; I just read the little article.) Here’s another about a silly woman who “married” herself to express publicly that she loves and accepts herself! Those, however, are mere elementary tomfoolery compared to the third one.
The third one – the BIG MAMA – is about a woman (a church organist!) who, in sheer insanity and sexual perversion, is planning on “marrying” a fairground ride. Yup. You read that correctly. Seriously, read the story. The Onion couldn’t have made it up (or written it) any better. This story (if it’s not fake) is truly amazing.
I’d say the concept and practice of marriage is still quite strong, wouldn’t you?
