By now you know that we have another change of direction in California's battle to keep gay people from legally validating their relationships.
All I can say is that I hope this ruling holds up on appeal.
As I was driving home tonight, I heard a fool on the radio quoting from the Bible about God's hatred of gay marriage, or at least that was the case he was attempting to build. God couldn't make it to the studio tonight, so we were left with what He is supposed to have said on the matter.
The evidence presented largely consisted of reading from Genesis. Specifically, the creation myth.
I don't think one wants to go down the road of using the Old Testament as evidence in in an argument about human behavior. That is a slippery slope.
All who curse their father or mother must be put
to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9).
That one would do a bunch of us in. Not to mention the OT prescription of death for fornicators, believers in other religions, fortunetellers, blasphemers, women who are not virgins on their wedding night, nonbelievers, hitters of their father, gays, infidels and people who work on the Sabbath.
Did I miss anyone?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you want your marriage sanctified, blessed, sealed or bonded in God, feel free to seek out the holy man or woman of your choice and have at it. Just leave other folks with the freedom to do the same.
And now a clip of my favorite crazy man of God, Rev. James David Manning.
