Dear New York State Senators
A major cultural event hangs in the balance to be determined by your vote. If same-sex marriage becomes law in New York it will spark a new cultural battle in the war for decency and morality in the state in the same way that the Roe V. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court did not settle the issue of abortion, but rather gave birth to a movement that will not rest until babies are, once again, protected in the womb.
James Wilson, the first Supreme Court Justice and father of our American Jurisprudence system taught us that civil law must always be consistent with divine law. In other words, the Bible--and in particular the New Testament-- is the standard against which all law must be measured.
The Old and the New Testament affirms that homosexual acts are always immoral. We dare not rely on human reason alone. It is that reasoning that has called six million Jews “schmattes,” which means “rags” thus dehumanizing them so they could be killed in the name of human progress. It is the same reasoning that calls unborn babies “products of conception,” thus dehumanizing them so they could be killed in the name of “a woman’s right to choose.”
Now, once again, the language is being manipulated to advance an ungodly agenda. Who would object to “Marriage Equality”? Why don’t they call it for what it is: “same-sex marriage”?
Civil rights laws regarding racial equality were accepted into our society because Americans understood the Biblical truth that we are all created equal, and that recognition of this truth is a step toward a “more perfect union,” but accepting an aberration of the definition of marriage leads us further from godly order, and in fact, back to a time before Jewish law introduced the concept of marriage. Proponents of same-sex marriage claim this to be a step in societal evolution. Their knowledge of human history is at best, short sighted, and at worst, ignorant of facts. Marriage was a step up in societal evolution. Same-sex marriage is a step backward. Remember Sodom?
I appeal to your sense of humility, and your desire to rule “in the fear of the Lord.” As the Father of our country, George Washington assured us:
“The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”
If same-sex marriage becomes law it will launch a fight for righteousness in this state and nation that will not rest until we are once again, “One Nation Under God,” and the Bible is once again acknowledged as the objective standard against which all our laws are measured.
I beseech you: defend authentic marriage for the sake of the next generation.
