Breitbart: “Welcome to the exciting new world of the slippery slope. With the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling this Friday legalizing same sex marriage in all 50 states, social liberalism has achieved one of its central goals. A right seemingly unthinkable two decades ago has now been broadly applied to a whole new class of citizens.
The question presents itself: Where does the next advance come? The answer is going to make nearly everyone uncomfortable: Now that we’ve defined that love and devotion and family isn’t driven by gender alone, why should it be limited to just two individuals? The most natural advance next for marriage lies in legalized polygamy—yet many of the same people who pressed for marriage equality for gay couples oppose it.”
Opinion: Once marriage became a 14th amendment issue of equal protection under the law, the Biblical definition of marriage becomes completely irrelevant.
Chief Justice Roberts “It is striking how much of the majority’s reasoning would apply with equal force to the claim of a fundamental right to plural marriage” and it will be equally striking when polygamy, or any combination of pairing no matter how perverse, demands that same equal protection.
It’s the law as determined by 9 unelected judges, period.
My niece tells a story about her grandmother (my mother) that is relevant to what we Christians can do now: After a serious and dangerous brain operation on her 10 year old son my very distraught niece did not get the news she had hoped for.
Feeling devastated and alone my niece went back to her son’s hospital room to grieve the diagnosis. When she walked into the room there was her grandmother standing in her stockings on a Bible.
My startled niece looked in amazement as mom said “We stand on the word of God”. My niece has been a Christian ever since.
No matter what comes that is the right place to stand.
