Activist Judge Strikes Down Ban On Homosexual Marriage

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by Chad, May 23, 2006.

  1. Activist Judge Strikes Down Ban On Homosexual Marriage, Overruling 76% of Georgia Voters

    A liberal activist judge has struck down a constitutional amendment in Georgia which made homosexual marriage illegal! She felt that she knew better than the voters how they should vote and threw out their ballots.

    The constitutional amendment, passed overwhelmingly by 76% of the voters in Georgia, is now null and void.

    The homosexuals are determined to win this battle. They know they will never win if the people have an opportunity to vote. So they are turning to liberal activist judges to force their will on the people. They intend to force homosexual marriage down the throats of Americans. They feel our children must be indoctrinated beginning in kindergarten that homosexuality is normal behavior.

    On June 6 the U.S. Senate will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) which defines marriage as being only between one man and one woman. Because of a power grab by activist judges like the one in Georgia, the MPA is the only way that the sacred institution of marriage will remain between one man and one woman.

    Take Action
    Please call your two U.S. Senators today and tell them to vote for the MPA. If your Senator's lines are busy, please keep trying. They need to hear from you personally.

    The liberal senators who want to legalize homosexual marriage will give you the political run-around. Don't be fooled. Just remember this: If your senator does not vote for the MPA he or she is voting for homosexual marriage. Regardless of the political jargon you get from a liberal senator; that is the bottom line.

    Use the link below to locate the main district office number for your two U.S. Senators along with talking points for your calls. Tell them to vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment. Print out their phone numbers and distribute in your church and Sunday school. Ask others to call!

    The time to act is now. We must not let a handful of activist, liberal, pro-homosexual marriage judges force homosexual marriage on us and our children.

    If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift? Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

    Sincerely,

    v 26 "For this cause God gave them up to vile affections; for even their women did change their natural use unto that which is against nature.
    v 27 "Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward the another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of thier error which was meet".

  3. Hey im not from the US but am interested to know how this Law went in the senate... I guess its the Law student in me.. Well if anyone knows it would be good to know!

    God Bless You all And God Bless America!


     
  4. Homosexual isnt right

    God created men for women and women for men not men for men and women for women people dont need to question god
     
  5. This is very true! I hope you didnt misinterpret my question. I was not hoping that it had passed, but was hoping that it had failed. I cant seem to find any information regarding it. In my country (Australia) we are still very opposed to the idea of gay marriage and our courts are substantially more conservative in outlook, although we do have one openly gay judge on the High Court, he does not hold much sway or have a lot of credibility on his social outlook.
     
  6. Why is it our responsibility as Christians to force Christianity down the throats of Americans?

    First the came for the Jews...

    Hello, fevoldj2

    I am astonished at you considering the quite recent history of your country. Do you not realise what is at stake here? The people who make these laws are humanists who are fundamentally anti Christian, anti God, and pro evil, all be it unwittingly in many cases. So it is necessary for Christian people to make a stand, otherwise we will be responsible for, and witnesses to the fall of our society into increased moral degradation and further wickedness.

    Remember the words of Pastor Martin Niemoller: First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
     
  8. Two gay people will be together whether we make their marriage legal or not.
     
  9. Right behind you in your post there Tony.
     
  10. If it isn't acceptable to GOD it is evil. Do we just sit around and let evil blossom? I think not.
     
  11. It seems like it is this one issue that Christians protest though. I don't see many protests about fast food (quite harmful to the body), about alcohol consumption, or about the porn industry. This one group of people is in reach, and it seems like they are easy to control. You don't have to get far out of your seat to protest it either. So, why this one special issue, but not others?
     
  12. Hello fevold2.


    I would like you to do something for me son. Get a bible and read through the first chapter of the book of Romans, which is in the New Testament.

    Send me a p.m. when you have done that. I ask for your indulgence in this, please.

    God Bless You and keep you Safe.
     
  13. I dont know about the issue in America but here in Australia Christians do oppose all these things you have listed. The reason you notice the Homosexual issue more readilly is because the media will take a story on Christians protesting against homosexuality than they will Fast Food. Also i dont know where you live but i have seen numerous protests regarding the porn industry and other things such as alcohol. Alcoholics Anonymous (one of the most effective ways for people addicted to alcohol to kick the habit) has a Christian basis and in many cases is run by Christian Churches (in Australia at least)

    Yes gay people may be together if it is legal or not, however the issue here is the legitimacy of such a union. By allowing gay marriage to be socially acceptable via legalisation then we are effectively saying that it is ok. Gay marriage is NOT ok. Jesus Christ gave us the commision of speading the gospel to the ends of the earth and i for one take that responsibility very seriously. I agree with Stephen have a read of Romans.

    God Bless and Keep you
     
  14. Okay, marriage is a religious union, correct? So why not make it illegal for any non-christian to get married? That seems fair enough.
     
  15. That would be living in fornication

    Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, Gal 5:19.

    If none Christians were not to marry this would mean they were practicing fornication which is another sin.

    When none Christians or nominal Christians marry they make a promise before God to be faithful to one another and God honours that promise. After all, it was God who instituted marriage, it is not a human invention. And it is God who sets the boundaries as to who should marry whom.

    For further info have a look at Leviticus 18.
     
  16. I have a question. What would your excuse be to GOD when you face Him and He asks you "what have you done to defend the Truth"?

    Also, you make it sound as if you know every Christian and what they do and do not know. How do you know all Christians do not fight against fast food, gay marriage, etc? Have you met every one of them? Do not assume nor play know-it-all. That is incorrect. Just because you do not see this does not mean it does not happen.

    I hope I never see the day when homosexuality is looked at as normal. Im 18 and there is a good chance by the time I have children, there will be gay marriage. I do not want my children to look at this life style as normal. I am for the law but when it goes against God's word its pitiful.

    Genesis 2:22
    And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. (KJV)

    Notice that God did not make another man but a woman for Adam.
     
  18. Do you feel as if your marriage would have less meaning if homosexuals were allowed to marry?
     
  19. What a strange thing to say. But what's more to the point why did you ask it?
     

  20. Probably being sarcastic considering he avoided my question of how he knows if every Christian opposes other matters/issues. Its obvious this person is the kind of person who selfishly lies around and waits for heaven to take him up and not care about defending good against evil.

    fevoldj2...its very apparent you are not a true believer. If you were, you would stick up for what GOD says is good, instead you are careless. Would you support if your own child was gay and decided to marry or would you reach out to him/her? What about the rest of the world? Are they not to reach out to as well? Apparently you don't care.
