Homosexuality and Same Sex Marriage

By Pastor David L. Brown, Ph.D.
Sermon Delivered 8/3/03

The Disastrous Decision of The Supreme Court

I was in Washington D.C. in June of this year (2003) when the United States Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence v. Texas that Texas’s sodomy law was unconstitutional on "right of privacy" and "equal protections" grounds "guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The section of the 14th Amendment that they are referring to is -- No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

This was a disastrous decision! Here is why. Their decision effectively put an end to the remaining sodomy laws on the books in 13 states and opened the door to the possibility of same sex marriages and new laws that will make calling homosexuality sin hate speech.

Homosexual sodomy was criminal conduct in all 50 states until the 1960’s. Since 1961 homosexual conduct has gone from being a crime in all 50 states to the Supreme Court ruling that it is protected behavior under the Law.

I grew up when homosexuality was categorized as a mental illness and Americans considered it a moral perversion. And, regardless of what the Supreme Court has ruled, our Supreme God says it is an abominable moral perversion. All we have to do is look at Leviticus 20:13   "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." What does the New Testament have to say? Turn to Romans 1:26-27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."

From the first book of the Bible it is clear that God’s judgment has been upon those who practice this sin! In Genesis 19 we see that the old and young men of the city of Sodom intended to molest the two angels (they thought they were men), which were sent there by God. It is clear that the men of Sodom preferred men over women. They refused the two women that were offered to them. In fact, the condition was so bad that 10 righteous men could not be found. If there had been, God would have spared them (Genesis 18:23-33). Ultimately God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities of the area because of the prevalence of homosexuality in that area (19:24-28).

The true story of Sodom and Gomorrah used to be laughed and even considered fictional by many until the Ebla tablets were discovered in the 1970's. Many of the tablets recorded trade records with Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain, proving to the skeptics they existed. The size of transactions led many historians to believe the population of the cities of the plain to be around 250,000.

Listen friends, the Sodom area was a fertile area blessed by God (Genesis 13:10-13). But, instead of being thankful to God for His blessings the people forgot God, were filled with pride, greed, and lived for pleasure. (Ezekiel 16:49).

For years people knew that this vial perversion existed in our culture, but it was hidden and scorned. All that changed in the so- called 60’s sexual revolution. The year was 1969. Homosexuality came "out of the closet" in the June 1969 riot at the Stonewall Bar in Greenwich Village, New York. It started as a routine police raid, but homosexuals fought back with bricks. There was 3 days of confrontation. The event is now celebrated yearly as "Gay Pride Week" symbolizing rebellion against the establishment and bringing their perversion into the open. From this, the Gay Rights movement was born. Since then, homosexuals and those who are sympathetic to their cause have chipped away and chipped away at the Judeo-Christian sexual values that under girded our nation until we are where we are at today. Public education, television and the liberal media are conduits pumping homosexual propaganda into the minds of Americans young and old. An increasing number of voices are shouting the lies that the "gay" lifestyle is normal and natural. But, would you call this a "gay" lifestyle? Homosexuals make up about 4% of the population. Yet, they have 44% of all male syphilis, 50% of all venereal disease, 53% of all intestinal diseases, 43% of all hepatitis A, 35% of all hepatitis B, and 88% of all AIDS cases. The average age of homosexuals dying with AIDS is 39. The average age of homosexuals dying of all other causes is only 41. Only 1 percent of homosexuals live to be 65 or older. The suicide rate among homosexuals is 60 times higher than the general population. They are three times as likely to have alcohol or drug abuse problems. They are 45 times more likely to be involved in auto accidents than heterosexuals. The rate of murder among homosexual men is 50 times greater than the general population. God’s hand of judgment is upon homosexuals.

These people need Christ so that they can be transformed. God can release a homosexual or lesbian from the bands of that lifestyle (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

The Fact Sheet that we get from Family Research Institute of Wisconsin says,

"In one sweeping action, the Court’s decision invalidated the sodomy laws of twelve additional states with such laws on the books. Wisconsin and 36 other states had already repealed their sodomy laws by either legislative or judicial action prior to the Lawrence decision….Homosexual activists and pro-family groups alike recognize that this decision has opened the proverbial Pandora’s box and has implications far beyond overturning states’ sodomy laws."

What are the implications of the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas? One key thing that will be attacked is the Biblical definition of marriage. Senator Scott L. Fiztgerald, (Republican from Juno) said, "the institution of marriage has served our society well, based on Judeo-Christian values and I think it should be protected." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; Officials to debate same-sex unions; B1 & 2).

Friends, the Bible is clear. Marriage is between a man and a woman! God made Eve and brought her to Adam (Genesis 2:22). Moses, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul affirm this.

Moses - Genesis 2:24   Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Christ - Mark 10:7   For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

Paul - Ephesians 5:31   For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

The Biblical family is the backbone of society! When then family is destroyed the culture is doomed. In fact, this was a key contributing factor in the demise of Rome.

The battle lines are being drawn as I speak. The liberals are intent on following Ontario Canada lead in pressing for same-sex marriage. Most conservatives rightly want to retain the status quo. For example, President Bush was asked the following question during a Wednesday (July 30, 2003) news conference in the White House Rose Garden-

BUSH: Yes, I am mindful that we're all sinners. And I caution those who may try to take the speck out of the neighbor's eye when they've got a log in their own. I think it's very important for our society to respect each individual, to welcome those with good hearts, to be a welcoming country. On the other hand, that does not mean that somebody like me needs to compromise on an issue such as marriage. And that's really where the issue is headed here in Washington, and that is the definition of marriage. I believe in the sanctity of marriage. I believe a marriage is between a man and a woman. And I think we ought to codify that one way or the other. And we've got lawyers looking at the best way to do that.

As a result of our President’s comments, "Representative Jan Schakowsky, Democrat from Illinois, sent a letter to the president complaining that he ‘seemed to equate homosexuality with sin. While you may not approve of homosexuality, as the leader of all Americans, you have no right to make such a judgment.’" (USA Today; Thursday, July 31, 2003; President wants to ‘codify’ marriage – Legislation in works to deny rights to gays).

Homosexuality IS sin according to God’s Word, the Bible and the President not only has a right but a responsibility as a "minister of God to thee for good" and a Christian to call it sin (see Romans 13:4). That is the decree of God. That needs to be our verdict also. We must clearly stand against homosexuality and same-sex marriage and stand for Biblical marriage.

We are living in an age similar to the time of Isaiah when he delivered God's warning, "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness" (Isaiah 5:20). Throughout our society there are many who are trying to force others to accept perversions of God's creation, which God plainly calls sin. It was God's design to create us male and female (Genesis 1:27). And, as we pointed out earlier, from the very beginning, man was to "leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh" (Genesis 2:24). Ever since this beginning, homosexuality and lesbianism have been a perversion of God's purpose for His Creation. It is a sin that often brings judgment in this life and, if unrepented of, will always cause condemnation in the next.

The Tyranny of Judges

Thomas Jefferson’s worst nightmare seems to have come to pass. Jefferson was very concerned that judges would become despots and overrule the rights of the people. In 1820, he wrote to a friend,

“You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions, a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so.”

Jefferson realized that the Constitution protects the will of the people, not the opinions of judges. But instead of protecting the people’s vote on Proposition 8, Judge Walker used his judicial office to promote the agenda of a small minority who want to change the definition of marriage.

The definition of marriage, instituted by God and practiced by every culture since the creation of man, is under attack in America today. There is no discrimination against homosexuals in America with regard to marriage, no unequal treatment. Homosexuals are equally as free to marry as any other American. Their problem is that the definition of marriage itself requires every person to marry someone of the opposite sex. The fact that homosexuals don’t want to enter into marriage as it has always been defined doesn’t give them the right to use the courts to change that definition to suit their wishes. Changing the definition of marriage, as Judge Walker has done, undermines the most important building block of any society.

Judge Walker described the “ability to marry” as a fundamental right that cannot be denied to gays and lesbians. But this conclusion is complete and utter nonsense. Every society in history has placed restrictions on the “ability to marry.” You can’t marry your sister. You can’t legally be married to two or three people at the same time. You can’t marry someone who is already married. And you can’t marry someone of the same sex. Marriage by definition involves two people of opposite sexes who are—theoretically, at least—biologically capable of reproducing and forming families.

Homosexuality is NOT a Right

       God pronounced the death penalty upon homosexuals in Leviticus 20:13, so don't you tell me that anyone has “a right” to commit homosexuality. The Bible condemns homosexuality with capital punishment. Could anything be more offensive than a sin which carries the death penalty? I think not. God hates the sin of homosexuality, just as God hates all sins. Men are wicked by nature and naturally define all matters of right and wrong by their own frail human standards. Without the Law of God as the highest moral standard, men become their own gods (which is exactly why Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, that is, because Satan lied to her and said she and Adam would become “as gods” knowing right from wrong). Humanity has been choosing for themselves what is right and wrong ever since, and it has led to destruction every time.

God has given to mankind a freewill to make our own decisions, but no one has “a right” to be immoral. The conflict arises between the Word of God verse the desire of man. When men exalt themselves in the place of God, choosing what is right or wrong without regard for the holy Scriptures, then they are doing the same thing as Lucifer did.

Isaiah 14:13-15, “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”

Satan sinfully exalted himself in an attempt to be equal with God. When the Supreme Court sinfully ruled to legalize the murdering of precious human life in 1973 (Roe vs. Wade), they put themselves in the place of God. When scientists produced human-animal hybrids in 2011, they put themselves in the place of God. When the state of New Work legalized same-sex marriages in 2011, they put themselves in the place of God. Mankind needs to stop playing God, and instead start obeying God. God gives men the freedom to choose, but not permission to choose to sin.

In man's system, as each succeeding generation becomes more evil, so does the moral standards by which their courts judge men and by which major political decisions are made. Ultimately, such a decadent system (without God's higher moral standard to guide them) can only spiral into destruction. Proof of what I say is in the ever increasing moral demise, political corruption, and economic turmoil destroying America today. Was the Bible and prayer really all that bad?

God has patiently tolerated our slow decline into apostasy, but God's patience is running thin with America. The passing of NDAA on December 31, 2011 is solid evidence that our nation is going into a fascist Police State. Tyranny has come to America in broad daylight. God will not be mocked. A nation cannot go into sin without coming to ruin. And so it is!


Same-Sex Marriage Has Sealed America's Doom!

A 2010 census revealed that just in Wisconsin, there are over 13,000 same-sex couples living together. Certainly that number is well into the hundreds-of-thousands in places like California. God will not bless a nation of homosexuals, abortionists and pornographers. Woe unto America...

Same-sex couples increase by nearly 60% since last Census

Friday, July 29, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTAQ) - The number of same-sex couples is way up in Wisconsin.

Statistics from the 2010 U.S. Census show more than 13,000 same-sex couples are currently living in the state.

Milwaukee County has about three thousand, while almost 700 were counted in Waukesha County.

The figures represent a growth of almost 58 percent. In the last census in 2000, Wisconsin recorded about 8,200 same-sex couples.

It is truly a sad day in American history. How much more of this wickedness will God tolerate? We are a nation led and occupied by fools. In November of 2011, the first ever Late Night TV same-sex marriage was legally officiated over by television host, Conan O'Brien. Caution: you may need to go vomit after seeing this...

To show you proof that the Godless mainstream newsmedia is controlled, watch for yourself as dozens of media outlets repeat the exact same thing. This is important to understand folks because you are being manipulated. The public is being indoctrinated, often deceived, even led to accept illegitimate wars and send out your children to die on the battlefield. WAKE UP! WAKE UP! WAKE UP! Please read, WHAT HAST THOU DONE AMERICA?

The newsmedia is Zionist (elite Jew) controlled. I know a lot of Christians don't want to believe that, but it's true nonetheless. Most Christians would be shocked to know that President Obama is a bisexual (See DIE AMERICA DIE by Pastor Texe Marrs). It's time for Christians to stop thinking like childlike people.
