The Sanctity of Marriage
What about the votes of the American Voters?
Because the U.S. Supreme Court made homosexual marriage legal, does that make it sacred and sanctified by God? No, I do not think so. The majority of voters who voted on the decision of "same-sex" homosexual marriage voted to ban same-sex marriage, and didn't think so either. The voter's decision, in many states lasted only for a few months when it was overturned by the federal courts and finally by the U.S. Supreme Court. On June 26, 2015, our voting power was stolen from us on that day. Some people just don't have respect for the sanctity of marriage anymore. Also, it was a sad day in America because Senator Reverend Pickney was the first shooting victim to be buried that day in Charleston, SC after a young, shooter killed 9 church goers inside of their church.
Senator Reverend Pickney's funeral was also on June 26, 2015; the same day of the decision to overrule the voters' decision to ban same-sex marriage. It was for many a bad day for the American political system, the family, and the society.
Government Should Not Deal in Religion
Marriage is a part of religion. That is why when people get married an ordained Reverend or Minister is needed to perform the wedding ceremony.
We, the people, have to speak up for family and the children who will unfortunately, be affected by what the government sanctioned and allows to be taught in school about what a husband and wife is. Our voting power was stolen on June 26, 2015, but our economic buying power still has a lot of power and merit to support our beliefs. We have to pay attention to what companies and organizations support what "agendas"?
