We’ve Got It All Wrong - Court Decisions and Constitutional “Rights” Do Not Supersede the Laws and Ordinances of Our Creator!

The 4-3 decision, written by Chief Justice Ronald M. George, rules that even though California’s domestic partnership (DP) laws give same-sex partners “all of the significant legal rights and obligations traditionally associated under state law with the institution of marriage,” the DP scheme violates the California Constitution because of its “failure to designate the official relationship of same-sex couples as marriage.” George writes:
In light of all of these circumstances, we conclude that retention of the traditional definition of marriage does not constitute a state interest sufficiently compelling, under the strict scrutiny equal protection standard, to justify withholding that status from same-sex couples. Accordingly, insofar as the provisions of sections 300 and 308.5 draw a distinction between opposite-sex couples and same-sex couples and exclude the latter from access to the designation of marriage, we conclude these statutes are unconstitutional. --- Part of article by Jan LaRue, Esq. of the Culture and Media Institute
In the midst of the increased calamities this nation is experiencing one would think that there might be a bit of a pause and some soul searching with a pointed question being asked, “Are we doing anything to correct our rebellious ways, seeking true repentance and as a nation, desiring to move to a favorable relationship with our Creator?”

If anything, we seem adamant in rebelling in just about every way possible as conceived by unregenerate minds and hearts.

Worse still is the attitude that our warped interpretation of the constitution gives us the “right” to do just about anything we want to do!

The recent California Supreme Court decision now makes possible for those practicing sodomy and lesbianism to marry – and it allows for these “couples” from anywhere to travel to California and get “married.”

The governor of New York, David Paterson, is setting in motion directives that will result in the recognition of such “marriages” from California, Massachusetts and Canada!

In the meantime we continue to destroy thousands of unborn children on a weekly basis, practice sexual immorality of every possible kind and use the designated day of worship of God as one big day of fun and games!

All this is done with the deadly deception that we have a constitutional “right” to do all these things plus anything else that may invade our minds so saturated with depravity -- a duplication of how it was with humanity in the years preceding the judgment of the flood at the time of Noah.

We are fulfilling to the letter a comment made a long time ago by one of God’s prophets

The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. --- Isaiah 24:4, 5

It appears more obvious as time moves on that this nation is going to pay a price which is far out of reach in terms of comprehension by our tiny finite minds. It still remains that God is not mocked and if we persist in ignoring the boundaries He has established, then we shall definitely reap as we have chosen to sow rebellion. See Galatians 6 for further details on that!

So one of these days when elected officials and others in positions of wealth and influence -- and even some church leaders begin to raise such questions as, "Why is God doing these things to us?" be prepared to answer that we are now discovering the hard way that our court rulings and so called constitutional "rights" DO NOT supersede the moral laws and ordinances established by the mighty Creator of the heavens and the earth!

"TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting..." --- Daniel 5:27

Amen and Amen.

“In the midst of the increased calamities this nation is experiencing one would think that there might be a bit of a pause and some soul searching…” Yes… one would think that, the problem is that the “calamities” we face as a nation, the 9th Circus ruling that is the subject of your post is not what a majority of this nation’s citizens consider a calamity.

Today in Postmodern America a calamity is Lindsey Lohan being arrested for alcohol or drugs or both or Brittney Spears continuing saga of pop star to pop-tart. Oh and don’t forget Angelina Jolie and whether or not she, is pregnant, pregnant with twin, has given birth… etc, etc. And don’t forget Jerry Springer’s show where we can tune in to see if “his girlfriend slept with his brother or his sister.” Then too there is the never ending saga of American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. I meant there is some serious competition going on there.

Of course if news is more to your liking you can tune in ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN and learn how not only was Hurricane Katrina President Bush’s fault, he is no doubt directly responsible for the Midwest flooding. Here too you can receive your daily dose of trashing the US Military while proclaiming that “we support the troops.”

“Are we doing anything to correct our rebellious ways, seeking true repentance and as a nation, desiring to move to a favorable relationship with our Creator?” Surely you jest. This nation has turned its back on God and will suffer the consequences.

A great and Loving God can and will grant mercy to a people that repent, Jonah observed this after carrying God’s word to Nineveh. However, 150 years later we learn from Nahum that Nineveh has once again turned from God and sunk into sin: God’s wrath prevails.

Best way to get a handle on what is happening in the U.S. is to closely read Jeremiah and Ezekiel. We are treading the same path as did Judah in the waning years of Zedekiah before the disaster of Babylonian invasion. The primary difference between those ancient Israelites and us is that we have more gadgets to add to the variety of our sins which they did not have -- otherwise we're in the same boat. And things did reach a point where Jeremiah was told at least 3 times not to pray any longer -- God would not hear, which meant judgment was now on the agenda! But as noted on past postings, judgment is something not to be discussed, even within the circles of churches and by pastors who claim to be Christian!
