In the beginning, God created man. Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” (Genesis 2:18) Notice that Adam was not totally alone; he was still in communion with God, and surrounded by animals. But God said it wasn't good for him to be without a helper, and so He gave him Eve. Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
That was the first marriage, personally performed by the Lord Himself. It is an earthly symbol of the relationship of Christ and His Bride, displayed through thousands of years of marriages. Every single one of those marriages has been an imperfect example, with a sinful man and a sinful woman, but it is still a holy union, designed by God.
"For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 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." - Romans 1:26-27
This perversion has been labeled "homosexuality," although I think even describing it so lends too much unwarranted justification; the idea that human sexual "orientation" could be variable is just too ridiculous. After an enormous amount of pressure in our society to "accept" the gay and lesbian lifestyle as "normal," they are trying to redefine the sacred covenant of marriage to allow these shameless "couples" to marry. This is clearly an attack, driven by Satan, to destroy the true definition of marriage.
This May, in North Carolina, voters have a chance to defend marriage from this mockery of God's creation. 30 other states have already adopted a marriage amendment in their constitutions. Please get out and vote FOR the marriage amendment, and protect the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.
