I told you it wouldn't be far behind. Republican Newt Gingrich has come out of the closet, so to speak, and declared that conservatives are going to have to accept homosexual "marriage." He said this is due to the fact that three states voted to allow same sex "marriage" and he expects more to do it in the future. Gingrich also encouraged the GOP to "accommodate and deal with the reality." Noticeably missing was any of the same talk about marijuana.
Gingrich, a man who has had three wives and committed adultery with two of the wives, said that he didn't expect the issue to become what it has, which in my opinion, is not that loud, but rather just has gotten media attention to promote and agenda. However, Gingrich said he could accept the difference between a "marriage in a church from a legal document issued by the state," according to the Huffington Post.
There are several problems with Gingrich's line of reasoning. First, many of these ceremonies between same sex couples will be taking place in places referred to as churches, though if such is taking place it definitely would not fall under the biblical definition of a church. Second, the issue is redefining a term, not an issue of "marriage equality," which is a catch phrase used as though homosexual unions would be considered "equal to" heterosexual unions. They are not. I have previously demonstrated that the issue is not just a change in law, but a complete redefining of the English word "marriage." I highly recommend the two minute version of Alan Keyes debating Barack Obama on the issue and pointing out the logic of the issue of marriage as being between a male and a female, not members of the same sex.
In addition, the Scriptures are clear. In the beginning God said,
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
This was not to take place between members of the same sex, but those of the opposite sex.
Rest assured, next the militant homosexuals will be pushing for legal action against churches that won't perform weddings for them. They are already taking legal action against businesses and photographers who won't work with them because of their religious convictions.
Gingrich said the GOP will need to accept that same sex "marriage" “is in every family, it is in every community.” But he doesn't give us a reason for accepting it. Because it is in every community or family is not a reason to embrace it. All kinds of sin prevails in families and communities, should we be those who just accept it? Do we embrace pride, anger, name calling, gossip, slander, promiscuity, adultery, lying, stealing and a whole host of things as acceptable merely because we all have members of our family or community that engage in them? I think not. This is merely a poor argument.
"The momentum is clearly now in the direction in finding some way to... accommodate and deal with reality,” he said. “And the reality is going to be that in a number of American states — and it will be more after 2014 — gay relationships will be legal, period.”
But they won't be right Mr. Gingrich. Making rape legal wouldn't make it right. So this is just like a RINO, in my opinion. When there seems to be a huge move in a direction, even if it's the wrong direction, the politicians get on the wave and ride it. He doesn't stand up for what is right. To him, it's political suicide.
The reality is the homosexuals can run off and have whatever ceremony they want and call it whatever they will, but that doesn't make it valid, right or legal. However, demanding the State recognize it as equal to biblical, traditional marriage is immoral and twisted. Woe to those like Mr. Gingrich who are now getting on the bandwagon and succombing to the left's terms and ideology.
