What is your
opinion about that awful decision by the Supreme Court about gay marriage?
Were all wondering.
s in all things, we should not be asking
Why did God allow this to happen? but What are we supposed to
learn from it?
What are we supposed to
learn from it?
If God had allowed the Supreme Court to
decide in favor of morality, we would have been tempted to glory in the decision with
the belief that the battle against evil can be fought with political means.
Instead, by allowing that awful
decision, God has put us in the place of having to face up to the fact that the
problem is not them but us. The real issue in front of us isnt
related to homosexuality per se, its related to Christian complacency in
The Cesspool of
Over the last several decades, Christians
themselves have so defiled the sanctity of marriage with lust, artificial contraception,
cohabitation, adultery, abortion, rampant divorce, broken families, remarriage after
divorce, blended familiesand a general indifference toward the liturgical celebration
of Holy Matrimonythat marriage has been turned into a social cesspool. The sewage now
being added now is just a continuation of an old problem. If Christians had been
living chaste holy lives, fighting the
spiritual battle against darkness and evil with
dedicated seriousness, and showing proper respect for Holy Matrimony all along, then the
idea of anything other than Holy Matrimony would not have been able to intrude into our social
But now God is telling us, More sh!t in
the cesspool wont make much difference.
Our Only Hope
As it is, the snakes have returned to Ireland,
and America the once Beautiful has become America the Slut. Our only hope now is to
repent our lukewarm complacency and start taking Christian identity
seriously. Our task is not to stop the homosexuals but to start living

Falling Families, Fallen Children by Raymond Lloyd Richmond, Ph.D.
Do our children see a mother and a father both living in contemplative love for
God with a constant awareness of His presence and engaged in an all-out battle
with the evil of the world? More often than not our children don’t see living
faith. They don’t see protection from evil. They don’t see genuine, fruitful
devotion. They don’t see genuine love for God. Instead, they see our external
acts of devotion as meaningless because they see all the other things we do that
contradict the true faith. Thus we lose credibility—and when parents lose credibility,
children become cynical and angry and turn to the social world around them for
identity and acceptance. They are children who have more concern for social approval
than for loving God. They are fallen children. Let’s bring them back.
