The definition of marriage is once again under attack in our nation. Last week, the state of New York, under the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo along with democratic senators, voted to legalize same sex marriage in that state. This happened chiefly because  a few Republican senators sided with the Democrats,  conservatives were out maneuvered by the lawmakers, and  the Roman Catholic hierarchy seemed ineffective against such power in the state senate.
Is the Garden State next? Many think so, including the editor of the Gloucester County Times, who wrote an editorial, (6/28), Help Guv Evolve on Gay Marriage. Our governor, Chris Christie, clearly stated that “marriage should be between one man and one woman.” I applaud his stand and courage in our state, yet the powers of darkness are at work to destroy this precious, God-ordained relationship.
Genesis 2:24 defines marriage as a union of a man and woman. The man is to leave home and cleave to his wife, they two are to be one flesh. Marriage is to be a lifelong covenant between a man and a woman! Hebrews 13:4 states that marriage is to be held in honor by all.
Sad, but a culture that has already lost the sanctity of life is in great danger of losing the sanctity of marriage. We are being asked to sanction perversion [homosexuality], and will be asked to finance it. Homosexuality is a lifestyle that is learned, and it is anything but gay.
New Jersey already recognizes civil unions, but that is not enough for the special interests groups. Remember, this lifestyle is a choice, one is not born that way – how dare we imply that God is responsible for perversion.
