“The Issue is not about about sexual orientation” they say. I would disagree redefining marriage changes everything if marriage is no longer about gender then what about any other boundery. Laws are bounderies that keep us safe. If we lose the line of delineation of marriage we continue down a slippery slope of the definition of species. The fact is our laws are based on absolutes. Once you erase the moral line of boundaries our nation we will cease to be a nation that is forefront. Our choices influence our economy! We are in serious danger already by forfeiting our companies to foreign nations and having abused our welfare to the brink. We are sliding into a abyss of moral decline and have forgotten our way. How many of us forfeit on our debt’s, file bankruptcy or have outstanding debt. What I am trying to say is our view of family is a direct correlation to our nation it all begins with the Individual and it spreads to the nation person by person. If we accept these new definitions we will lose the very foundation of our society. This is not a doom and gloom prediction this is the fruit of poor stewardship we must repent or perish. the natural consequences of denying the truth is moral bankruptcy.
