Gendered Marriage is Genocide of Christians

Ever since marriage was defined at the wedding in the Garden of Eden, marriage remained, until now, a sacred unchangeable institution -- a sacrament established by God for the future benefit of mankind.

Marriage -- we used to call it Holy Matrimony because God established it -- will become unholy the moment it is equated to behavior prohibited by the unchanging God of the Bible.

Homosex is abhorrent to Biblical principles. Examples: Jude 7-11, 1st Corinthians 6:9, Romans 1:26, 27, Leviticus 20:13, 2nd Peter 2:6,10-12, 1st Timothy 1:9-10. Even Lot "vexed his righteous soul" to tolerate the "filthy conduct" of his neighbors -- it affected him to such an extent that he offered his daughters to homosexuals as a bribe.

Traditional marriage and unholy marriage are opposites. They cannot coexist together in the same society. Civil union marriage will REPLACE, not coexist with, Traditional Marriage. It is NOT the granting of rights to a minority group, it is the denial of rights to Christians. Here is why they cannot coexist: most Churches teach that the authority mentioned in Romans 13:1 is government authority, and that it must be honored. Therefore, whatever kind of marriage that government authorizes is the ONLY kind that is available to those Christians who honor government authority.

Once the law is passed declaring that real marriage* is now substituted by a kind that is prohibited by the Bible, then the government-authorized unholy matrimony is the only kind available. Traditional marriage will then be shunned, (essentially eliminated) by all who honor government authority, but refuse to condone unholy matrimony.

* Real marriage is the kind that the US Supreme Court in Maynard v. Hill said was from a higher authority than any contract. But the right to contract included our right to write a Constitution that created our government. Government can become a higher authority only when they declare themselves to be gods.

Christians must refuse a non-traditional marriage. Although some so-called Christian couples will reluctantly apply for government-authorized unholy matrimony (because it is the only marriage available), many couples will obey God and accept the consequences. Paganized unholy matrimony is abhorrent to Christian principles. This has a serious lifetime consequence. Even the Georgia Supreme Court in Askew v. Dupree ruled that traditional marriage saves the bride's honor: "Her honor is saved, and this is worth more than everything, even life itself." Is the new government legislated counterfeit marriage still a minimal moral standard that it is worth more than life itself? Or is it the opposite? Is it a permit to commit behavior that is abhorrent to Christians, which must be refused to save the family's honor?

Genocide is evil. Don't let them call it love. If government redefines marriage as something prohibited by Christian principles, then many Christians would remain unmarried and refuse to participate. This will be genocide. The Genocide Treaty, 78 UNTS 277 defines the crime of genocide to include "… in whole or in part … measures intended to prevent births within the group…" If a Christian couple refuses to participate in pagan wedding vows, and refrains from fornication (which is also evil -- fornicators cannot go to heaven according to 1st Corinthians 6:9) then they will suffer this genocide.

Speak now or forever hold your peace.
