The drive to create the oxymoron of homosexual marriage is simply the penultimate strategy of the homosexual lobby’s determination to force society to deny that homosexual relations are a form of moral perversion. Legalizing homosexual relations as a form of marriage is in truth the elevating of perverted sexual activity to a civil right. To say that this latest victory in the Supreme Court is a victory that harms no one is the darkest of lies, and it is being applauded today by a large majority of Americans. The truth is that this “victory” harms everyone, for it enshrines a deadly lie and a moral perversion in the highest law of the land. To fight this, we need to stop enabling this lie by refusing to call this moral evil by its true name, and that name is perversion. That is where the true moral battle lies in this struggle, in the lie that sodomy is a moral good and that sodomy is the moral equivalent to the marriage act of sexual intercourse between husband and wife.
In fairness, it should be recognized that the homosexual community is not the only perverter of moral truth in the matter of sodomy. The reason most Americans cannot see the perversion of homosexual sodomy is that most Americans for some time now have not been able to see the moral evil of a man sodomizing his wife, anally or orally, for the so-called sexual revolution has had a stronghold on American men and women for decades, and it holds that no sexual acts are evil or perverted so long as the two parties freely engage in such actions. It matters naught for most secularized Americans today that they themselves do not agree with God’s teaching or the moral tradition of the human race until the revolution in the western world took hold. Freedom of choice trumps all divine moral law when it comes to issue of sexual activity, the same freedom of choice that has led to the slaughter of tens of millions of innocent unborn children in the lands of sexual freedom.
Homosexuals being allowed to civilly marry establishes unnatural sex as the moral equivalent of what has always been considered, until this dreadful age, the natural expression of married love ordained to parenthood and faithful conjugal love. The result is inevitable, not that heterosexuals will become homosexuals in any great numbers, but that heterosexuals will see sodomy and other perversions of sex as perfectly normal, for those who choose them. Thus it is logical and predictable that more young people growing up in this perverted moral order will choose them since the purpose of sex is now formally redefined in civil law, and consequently in moral conscience for most Americans, as pure pleasure seeking without the burden of family life. Most homosexuals will not marry because that was never the goal of this struggle to legalize homosexual marriage. The goal was to b ring the sexual revolution to its culmination, where everything goes so long as one chooses it freely.
The ultimate problem is that this sounds the death knell of any society that makes this choice. Contraception and sexual perversion are already driving the death wish of European countries that have gone this enlightened path. Children are disappearing (as a recent article in the liberal Washing Post reported of Portugal), and one natural law you can’t fool yourself about is that no children means no future. Perversion of sex, whether by contraception or sodomy has its natural outcome in societal death.
I feel a lot like Lot these days. The poor man who freely chose to go to the East and live in Sodom found out that sexual libertinism of any form leads to a scary and unhappy life and future, “He rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the licentiousness of the wicked 8 (for by what that righteous man saw and heard as he lived among them, he was vexed in his righteous soul day after day with their lawless deeds.” (2 Peter 2:7-8) Life will not be as “gay” – in any sense of that word – as the revelers predicted after this court victory.
We will increasingly experience the darkness that surrounds those trying to live a chaste life in a perverted world, as Paul refers to it in Phil 2:15: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world,” and as Peter speaks of it in Acts 2:40, “Save yourselves from this perverse generation!” It is a perverse generation not simply because it engages in perverted activity, for that is always a problem, but even more so because it calls evil good and good evil: Titus 1:15 “To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.”
But Paul does not counsel us to run away, but with the grace of God to “shine as lights in the world” and to do so precisely by living “blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation.” This government has by Roe and by Windsor and other perverse decisions and laws formally made this country a crooked and perverse generation. But surely not all Americans fit this description, and we have to live in such a way and profess our faith in such a way that many more will see the path this movement is leading its people down the path of destruction and unhappiness for all.
