With today’s narrow aversion of further defeat for the cause of gay marriage in Michigan, some conservative Christians are alarmed about the prospects for traditional marriage:
State Rep. Jerry Kooiman, R-Grand Rapids, said he wasdisappointedby the vote.
This was an opportunity for West Michigan to make clear our belief that marriage is between one man and one woman,he said.
. . .
The measure was supported by almost all GOP lawmakers, who said a state law limiting marriage to one man and one woman isn’t enough. …Today an aggressive assault is being waged, aided by activist judges who would attempt to redefine this institution that has stood the test of time for thousands of years,said Republican Rep. Jack Hoogendyk of Portage.
In troubled times like these, there’s nothing like solace from the Word of God:
1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites: 2 Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. 3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines… (1 Kings 11:1-3)
Now that’s some old time religion!
