At first glance my tying the same sex marriage ruling to the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution, appears to be without merit. But is it? The right to bear arms is clearly stated in the Constitution; whereas, the definition of marriage is unsaid. One firmly implants the stated intentions of the Founding Fathers to forever grant citizens the right to bear arms; whereas, the other denies the universally held position that marriage is solely the union between one man and one woman.
Sadly, the U.S. Constitution is no longer the cornerstone document holding this nation together. It is no longer the instrument each citizen can look to with complete confidence to guarantee their rights and privileges. It has become a political tool in which five justices can enforce their devolving worldview.
The five justices who decided that marriage is no longer limited to one man and one woman, all claim to be either Christians or Jewish. The last time I checked, both religions taught that marriage was only permissible between members of the opposite sex.
These justices recognized the ancient historical nature of marriage as stated on page three:
“From their beginning to their most recent page, the annals of human history reveal the transcendent importance of marriage. The lifelong union of a man and a woman always has promised nobility and dignity to all persons, without regard to their station in life. Marriage is sacred to those who live by their religions and offers unique fulfillment to those who find meaning in the secular realm…”
By acknowledging in print that marriage is sacred to those who live by their religions; these jurist acknowledged that neither marriage nor their religion is sacred to them!
They also stated on page 4: “It is fair and necessary to say these references were based on the understanding that marriage is a union between two persons of the opposite sex””
Yet in spite of the unanimous testimony of human history concerning marriage, the jurist declared on page 15: “Excluding same-sex couples from marriage thus conflicts with a central premise of the right to marry.”
It was not enough to discover unbeknownst to everyone else, the right of same sex marriage inside the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the five justices included the thoughts of Confucius and Cicero in their opinion. This begs the question. Why would this court submit the thoughts of two pagan philosophers whose opinions and writing had nothing to do with the formation of this nation? Since America’s foundations was constructed from a Judeo-Christian worldview, why didn’t they submit the thoughts of Founding Fathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or John Adams?
Even the submitted testimony of pagans didn’t support the conclusion of the court. They stated on page 3; Confucius taught that marriage lies at the foundation of government and Cicero said, “The first bond of society is marriage, next children; and then the family.”
These supposedly fair and impartial justices chose not to submit one biblical verse. Wouldn’t fair and impartial jurist present equal weight to ancient text. Especially text they purportedly trust and live by. Unfortunately, these jurist were neither fair nor impartial. They knew that there was no biblical justification for what they decided to do.
I would like to submit one Scripture for the court to consider.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. KJV
Which brings me to the 2nd Amendment. Our Founding Fathers birthed this country at the barrel of a gun; therefore, they knew the potential of a government going sideways. That is the reason why they embedded the right to bear arms in the Constitution. If our leaders lose their minds, they wanted clear thinking citizen to have the ability to protect themselves from a wayward government.
However, as smart and forwarding thinking as these men were, they never envisioned a time when Americans would no longer be able to tell the difference between men and women. They never considered the possibility that this nation would become so reprobate that we would mock God and attempt to redefine marriage.
We were warned of the danger of abandoning our Judeo-Christian foundation. Starting in 1962, we chose to ignore those warnings. Now our nation is biblically and historically illiterate. If the court sought guidance from the Founding Fathers instead of foreign pagans, they would have discovered the basis for the correct decision was already summarized by President John Adams:
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
