In his second inaugural speech, President Barack Obama quoted the preamble to the U.S. Constitution and applied it to homosexual marriage. Citing the statement, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” he argued that if this is true then “homosexual love” must be equal as well. He said the journey to human equality “is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” This is pure nonsense.
The Creator God to whom the Founding Fathers referred is the Creator God described in Scripture. At the beginning of the American Revolution, 99.8% of Americans claimed to be Christians (Peter Lillback, George Washington’s Sacred Fire). Though we know that a majority were not born again, the fact remains that there was a huge consensus as to the fact that there is a God and as to who that God is and as to what His laws are. The King James Bible that the U.S. Founding Fathers often quoted does not grant liberty for men to “love” as they please.
The Ten Commandments, which were posted prominently in U.S. schools, legislatures, and courts for 200 years of U.S. history until removed in recently decades by activist judges, restricts man’s freedom by God’s holy laws. One of these is “thou shalt not commit adultery,” and adultery is defined in Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, as the breaking of the bond of holy matrimony, and holy matrimony, as affirmed by Jesus Himself, is one man and one woman in a lifelong covenant of marriage.
Nowhere in Scripture is there even a hint of support for the “marriage” of sameSex couples. President Obama is helping to destroy America morally, socially, and fiscally, but he is not the main problem. He did not elect himself. He is a reflection of the heart and soul of a large portion of the nation. His New Agey type of Christianity--the Oprah Winfrey/The Shack type of Christianity--is the type of Christianity that is very popular in America and that is promoted by the American pop culture throughout the world. America is still a nation of churches, and that is the root problem. Until America’s churches repent and return to walking in the fear of God, the nation will remain under God’s judgment and will continue to be led by unwise men.
