US Supreme Court supports gay marriage, rules DOMA unconstitutional

US-JUSTICE-GAY-MARRIAGE

IN A huge victory for gays and lesbians, the US Supreme Court struck down a law denying federal benefits to homosexual couples and cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California.

Cheers rang out among the estimated 1000 supporters of same-sex marriage who gathered under brilliant sunshine outside the high court in Washington for the historic rulings, which will have a major impact on US society.

In a 5-4 decision, the court first struck down the Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA), which denied federal benefits to married gay and lesbian couples by strictly defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

“DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment” of the Constitution, said the majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

US President Barack Obama hailed the DOMA decision, saying in a statement: “We are a people who declared that we are all created equal – and the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

The court also said a case on Proposition 8, a 2008 voter initiative in California that prohibited same-sex marriage in the nation’s most populous state, was not properly brought before them.

That 5-4 decision – which indicated gay marriages would likely resume in California – enabled the justices to dodge the thornier issue of whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional right throughout the United States.

HOW FAR, A ONCE GREAT NATION, HAS FALLEN!

Is this what God intended for his creation when he made man and woman in his own image? Did the God head say let us make man in our image, the man, and the woman, in order that they may forget my purpose of one man, and one woman to marry and reproduce children in a loving homogenous lifelong marriage?  Why have the “leaders” of today’s politics, of  the once great western powers lost all sense of moral compass?

The simple answer is that they have forgotten their God, “thinking” he no longer exists, if he ever did in their eyes. The full answer cannot be conveyed in the space here, but one answer is clearly outlined in the Holy Scriptures as a prophecy God would bring about because of this very situation. In fact, God foretold in the prophet Isaiah that he would take away the mighty man, the judge, the prudent, the honourable man, the eloquent orator, and would give children to be their princes!

And the result? “The show of their countenance does witness against them; and they declare their sin as SODOM, THEY HIDE IT NOT! Woe unto their soul! They have rewarded EVIL unto themselves.

Could the pronouncement from the eternal creator get any worse than this? YES! And God makes this clear in no uncertain terms, saying;  As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths. God foretold that they would declare their sin as sodom, and this has been increasing to the point that now, ‘they’ the sodomites now have equal standing with a God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. WHen wil Americans wake up out of their stupor and paint their colors to the mast? Or is this now their true colors? I believe it is the latter, because the leadership has been removed, and those who are children in the mind now “lead” the western powers down a path from where there is no remedy, other than the coming time of world conflict, called THE GREAT TRIBULATION,  a time such as has never been, no nor ever will be again! Mt.24:21

Though this is in California, the USA under its current ‘leader’ has this weak mentality to cede to the wishes of the lowest common denominator in the aggressive “gay-rights” activist lobby, and as a result, has allowed the once great nation to be unpicked as if from the seams, until it has become almost stripped of it’s national, and international greatness, of the dignity, the honour and respect it formerly held. God help us to take heed unto the word of the living God, to begin to cast aside these reckless incumbents, and begin to obey the Almighty God.
