Leftist California has done the right thing by upholding Prop 8 and the will of the people. Californians have already spoken. The majority believe that marriage is intended to be between one man and one women, and the court ruled in favor of this today.
I rejoice in this victory, not out of hatred for gays, but out of love for God's Word. Marriage is God-ordained. As my pastor so wisely shared on Sunday, "Marriage did not originate with the government; it originated with God." And it is the backbone of our society. Without the union of men and women, I would not be here, you would not be here, and the world would cease to exist. It's quite simple. It was God's order to Adam and Eve to "be fruitful and multiply." And this multiplication has been the product of marriage ever since those words were uttered. Since this spiritual and biological truth is as obvious as it is, why was Californian Carrie Prejean depicted as a devil in a dress? Why does Nancy Pelosi feel it is her personal responsibility to fight the cause for gay marriage when she returns from China? And why are we still even debating the necessity of protecting traditional marriage?
I'm sure this battle is not over, but I applaud the California Supreme Court for doing the right thing today by respecting the will of the people, who, whether aware of it or not, are respecting the will of God.
