This is a short post because I don't want the point to be lost.
The reason why the Supreme Court has upended the definition and nature of marriage by legalizing marital unions between homosexuals is because the dignity, beauty and sanctity of marriage had already been destroyed by heterosexuals. It is the same reason we have so many abortions performed every day in our country.
The reason is fornication.
When artificial birth control became widely used, our culture severed the link between sexuality and its natural result, which is procreation. All hell broke loose. People no longer felt the need to maintain chastity. Sex during courtship was assumed. Sex without courtship was practiced widely. Religious prohibitions against promiscuity were abandoned as stale, old, unnecessary rules. We had THE PILL. We could do anything we wanted, and we did.
Sometimes the pill didn't work or we forgot to take it and we got pregnant. Abortions became legal, and we just killed the children that were conceived during these ill-fated unions because we had mentally disconnected the sex act from reproduction. In our minds, "it" was not supposed to happen! "It" was not a baby. "It" was an accident. So, the accident had a heartbeat at 8 weeks and unique fingerprints at 10 weeks? So what?
After spending the last 60 years violating Biblical commandments with perverted, sterile sex acts and 40 years of murdering our unborn children, how could we then turn around and tell the homosexual, who was ALSO living a lifestyle of perverted, sterile sex acts, that they were not "okay" as they were?
We have validated the homosexual "marriage" in order to validate our own fornication.
FORNICATION is the cause. Abortion is a consequence. Gay marriage is the rationalization.
I can tell you from personal experience that leading a chaste life, in obedience to the will of God, purifying oneself in preparation for the beatific vision, is more satisfying, more joyful and more exciting than a thousand illicit liaisons. Spread the good news.
