On May 8 North Carolinian's will vote on Proposition One:
“Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.”
If I listen to two former Charlotte mayors, Harvey Ghant (D) and Richard Vinroot (R), I will likely vote against Prop 1. Why? Because these two men consider any prohibition of homosexual marriage to be little more than hatred, discrimination and bigotry. Their views are sadly predictable. Life long politicians follow the path to money and votes. All other considerations aside, the homosexual demographic has plenty of both. Sadly, both parties are anxious to get their money and their votes. These two lifetime professional politicians have teamed up to make a television commercial in order to suppress the pro Prop One vote. They do so by insinuating that anyone so voting is uneducated, narrow-minded, intolerant, bigoted and hateful for wanting to deny the "right" to marriage to two people of the same sex who want to be married.
On the other hand, if I listen to Jesus Christ, I will assuredly vote FOR the proposition. In Matthew 19 Jesus makes very clear that God blesses sexual union ONLY between one man and one woman for life with two exceptions - death and adultery. All other sexual unions are, therefore, outside of God's Will. This would include ALL forms of immorality, including but not limited to, fornication, adultery, incest, bestiality et. al. "From the beginning" God made the familial model of one man with one woman for life with children the basic building block of society. Our Founding Fathers understood this. John Adams, signer of the Declaration and our 2nd president, said; "Our form of government is for a moral and religious people and none other." To discard this marital model is to invite chaos and destruction to the Republic.
We all have a blessing, opportunity and an obligation to vote FOR Proposition One on May 8. This is not a political issue though it is debated in the political arena. It is not a Democratic Party or a Republican Party issue for both parties are both pandering to immorality. It IS an opportunity to "proclaim liberty throughout the land" for morality, marriage and fidelity protect and enhance all other freedoms - freedoms given to us by God and not by man as stated in the Declaration.
As for me and my house, I will vote for righteousness on May 8 though many may "call" me a bigot.
