Regarding ongoing press reports about 'gay marriages' let us clear the air clear
about these silly mergers. No, Churches won't be forced to conduct these unions
but be assured also that many more people in Scotland will reject them entirely
and oppose them vehemently, even if legislation is passed. Beware and bewarned.
The majority of Scottish MSP’s may very well be supportive of same-sex marriage
– and shame on them –but that is not the view of the morally sober Scottish public.
The Government cabinet in Edinburgh know that all very well, having received nearly
80,000 responses to their consultation document. If this was a staggering number,
then more staggering still was another statistic: this was some three times more
than, wait for it, the consultation responses on Scottish Independence. They would
never have believed such a calamity would happen. But it has and they better wake
up to reality.
No wonder they are indecisive, as more than 2 to 1 of people in Scotland, the nation
that the Government are supposed to represent, are totally opposed to this bizarre
union. In simple English what the people of Scotland are saying is that only proper
marriage between one man and one woman is right and same-sex ‘marriage’ is wrong,
wrong, wrong. Does the Scottish Government honestly think they have a Divine warrant
to rewrite the law on proper marriage without unraveling hundreds of years of law
and culture? No they haven’t. This marriage union was ordained and sanctioned by
God at the beginning of time, with the stipulation it can never be altered or redefined.
The Government has also come to realize that legalities will overwhelm them, unless
they take heed of the warnings to change course now and alter direction. At the
moment it is sailing, just like the Titanic, on a rendezvous with disaster.
As a Missionary of the gospel, and Christian evangelist, I wish to place it formally
on record that no law or public opprobrium will prevent me from publicly preaching
against the sins of sodomy and unnatural union and will continue to preach publicly
against it, and every other sin, which the Word of God condemns. Furthermore, I
will never solemnise nor recognise same-sex unions, whatever form or name is given
to them, as they are a violation of God’s sacred law. Christians (at least those
who are genuine) and non-Christians also, will endorse and concur with this.
It is certainly not politicians in the Scottish Government, lawyers in court or judges
with black robes that have the final decision on the union of marriage, it is God.
He has pronounced judgement and His verdict is final. Wise is the man, or woman,
who is more concerned about what He thinks than what men say: “We ought to obey God
rather than men.” (Acts 5v29)
It is high time Captain Alex Salmond, and all on board his Holyrood ship, began to
throw his same-sex ‘marriage’ ideas overboard before he and they collide with disaster
of calamitous ruin. It is quite evident that none of them are fit to run a corner
shop, never mind a nation of some 6 million people.
