California's Gay Marriage Battle.

By Jean Bush.

On February 12, 2004, the mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, who is gay himself, decided that his city would start performing same-sex marriages at their courthouse. This was in complete defiance of Proposition 22, which was passed by the voting majority, which defines marriage as a “personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman.” This gay mayor maintains that California’s State Constitution’s equal protection clause nullified that law. On August 13 of this same year, the California Supreme Court ruled that Newsom overstepped his authority and nullified some 4,000 marriages in San Francisco during this period.

Most proponents of gay marriage compare their fight to that of early racism, which so divided this country for decades. However, those with this view miss the point. Racism is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary as:

As a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences an inherent superiority of a particular race.

I think that all races firmly believe that in some way or other they are superior to all other people and cultures. To hate another just because of the color of their skin, which is what racism in America really means, is a sin against God, as He created us all and in His great diversity want us all the enjoy equally the fruits of the earth.

However, the homosexual’s desire for the traditional marriage enjoyed by men and women for the past 10,000 years, is not a case of discrimination, but of a desperate need to appear “normal” in the eyes of society, and in so doing, become an accepted part of the mainstream of American culture. If they achieve this, then their perverted sexual proclivities will be more and more accepted as just another alternative lifestyle, instead of the sick and disgusting perversion of the normal sex act between a man and a woman, an act that, in the eyes of God, is the spiritual worship of their Creator.

To discriminate, to discern: from Middle English and French – discerner; from Latin – discernere: to separate, to distinguish between – from dis- apart and cernere – to sift.

We had better discriminate against this insidious madness or else we are forever lost.

This is not a battle for a discriminated minority to win the same rights as all others enjoy. This is a Satanic war hell-bent on destroying traditional marriage, the normal relations between men and women, love, society and, in the end, humanity.
