Matt 24 watch, 259: As "same sex 'marriage' . . . " goes before the US Supreme Court the USA looks set to be on a collision course with God's establishment of a creation order for family and marriage at its heart

previous: here

The following graphic in WaPo caught my eye, as it aptly captures a pattern of institutionally manipulated, agenda-driven imposition in defiance of the patent, morally tinged, naturally evident, Creation order for marriage and family . . . and, no, it is just as patently so that it is false that "My genes made me do it." 

So, on rights of fair use and fair comment and also by dint of duty to blow the trumpet in clear warning:

It is obvious that the Courts of the USA are imposing an unnatural agenda, relying on the habitual tendency of people to respect lawful institutions to carry the day. 

But, they seem to be forgetting the counsel of our Lord (given in the context of divorce, but with much broader implications, per "how much more . . ." ):
Matt 19: He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
If divorce is already a hard-hearted violation of God's intent, inherently a second best solution, what more must we see about the pretence that Adam can "marry" Steve or Eve, Sue; in light of the following grim warning in the face of corrupt and perverted Roman elites:

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 

 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[g] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

  21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

[--> In the old days, idols in temples surrounded by scandal-riddled myths:

. . . nowadays, often fossil reconstructions in museums, textbooks etc laced with the imposition of a priori evolutionary materialism:

. . . so we must reckon with -- never mind the imposing lab coats and labels such as Science -- the inescapable self-falsifying intellectual incoherence of evolutionary materialism and with its linked utter want of a worldview foundational IS that can bear the weight of OUGHT, duly and solemnly warned against since Plato in The Laws Bk X 360 BC as leading to amorality, nihilism and ruthless faction agendas that will twist the meaning of rights utterly out of the context that to have a right to X, X must itself be in the right.]

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 

32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. [ESV]
In this context, we would be well advised to listen again to Russian-Australian Lesbian activist Masha Gessen:

. . . YouTube:

. . . actual audio clip:

Our civilisation, in proud rebellion against our Creator backed up by a twisted, lab coat clad, ideologically imposed misunderstanding of our origins:
. . . to put a correct view of the universe into people's heads we must first get an incorrect view out . . .   the problem is to get them to reject irrational and supernatural explanations of the world, the demons that exist only in their imaginations, and to accept a social and intellectual apparatus, Science, as the only begetter of truth [[--> NB: this is a knowledge claim about knowledge and its possible sources, i.e. it is a claim in philosophy not science; it is thus self-refuting]. . . . 

It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes [[--> another major begging of the question . . . ] to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute [[--> i.e. here we see the fallacious, indoctrinated, ideological, closed mind . . . ], for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door. 

 [ Harvard Biologist Richard Lewontin in “Billions and Billions of Demons,” NYRB, January 9, 1997. If you have been misled to imagine the above is "Quote-mined," kindly cf. the linked fuller citation just above.]
 . . . is now on a head-on collision course with God. Such madness will inevitably lose. 

But much harm and much demonisation, stereotyping and scapegoating based persecution of those who stand up in the face of the determined march of folly, is predictable --  and has already begun. END
