A new poll from the Pew Research Center suggests 65 percent of Democrats now support same-sex marriage, whereas only 50 percent did at the time of the last Democratic presidential nominating convention.
I suppose that’s to be expected.
In 2008, not one Democratic presidential candidate – not Barack Obama, not Hillary Clinton, not Joe Biden, not John Edwards – supported same sex-marriage and other twisted unions involving “transgendereds” and other poor souls.
This year, at the prodding of Biden, Obama came out of the closet as a supporter of same-sex marriage – an oxymoron if ever there were one.
What’s more disturbing to me, if not entirely shocking, is that 24 percent of Republicans now support this perversity – the undermining of a 6,000-year-old, God-ordained institution, not to mention one that has been observed by every major and minor culture throughout the history of the world until now.
So I have a modest proposal about what I think would be a new political realignment.
I think it would make sense, with a division so profound as this, that the 35 percent of Democrats who have still have the good sense to oppose this abominable fad join the Republican Party. And, likewise, that the 24 percent of Republicans who support it, join the Democratic Party.
Because this ought to be the key dividing issue and debate if our nation, our society and our culture is to survive one more generation.
Yes, there are many other problems plaguing America today:
- Skyrocketing debt threatens to bring an end to the country’s prosperity and economic health in the short term;
- Socialism, or wealth redistribution by government, has already brought the country to its knees;
- Islamic radicalism threatens not just Israel and the U.S., but the entire civilized world;
- The American government education complex is making every generation dumber than the last;
- American moral standards, apart from the absurd push to deny men and women are different, are at an all-time low;
- Americans are losing their sense of self-reliance and appreciation for liberty;
- The Constitution isn’t even considered relevant to most politicians in Washington and judges across the nation;
- Americans are losing their appreciation for the sacrifices that were made by previous generations to set the country apart from the rest of the world;
- Abortions are still taking the lives of millions of unborn children in a country that was once the most religious in the world;
- In general, America is shaking its fist at God and His creation;
I could go on and on.
But nothing will bring down America faster, in my opinion, that the proliferation of this sham of same-sex marriage – this phony, fraudulent, sinful idea that is being promoted, I am convinced, with just that purpose in mind.
The fact that perverse sex practices are gaining such wide acceptance is, in fact, something of a judgment on America, as suggested by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:18-32.
Even nonbelievers should have the good sense to know this will never work – just from a practical standpoint. Neither will a concession to the same-sex marriage crowd end the push for more ungodly practices and initiatives and policy prescriptions.
As Justice Antonin Scalia warned in the Lawrence v. Texas case a few years ago that resulted in the de facto legalization of sodomy, it doesn’t end there.
If you can’t make a legal or moral distinction between heterosexuality and homosexuality, neither can you make one that will preserve marriage between two people – of any sexual orientation. The door will be blasted wide open for polygamy – if it hasn’t been already. Soon, those who believe homosexual behavior is sinful will be persecuted.
Without the Bible as a standard, there is no standard. Every man (and woman and transgendered) will do what is right in his own eyes.
What kind of a world are we creating for children?
And that’s why I think this is the issue of all issues – the one that should define the differences between the two major political parties.
