Senate passes abomination bill–but God created marriage, not the state–more ‘gaslighting’

Newlywed Couple and supporters (Jean-Pierre Dalbéra)


Various ones have improperly indicated that if a US State says something is a marriage that it is a marriage.

Now, that looks to soon be the law of the land in the USA as its Senate passed a homosexual marriage bill:

Landmark same-sex marriage bill wins Senate passage

November 30, 2022

The Senate passed bipartisan legislation Tuesday to protect same-sex marriages, an extraordinary sign of shifting national politics on the issue …

The bill, which would ensure that same-sex and interracial marriages are enshrined in federal law, was approved 61-36 on Tuesday, including support from 12 Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the legislation was “a long time coming” …

President Joe Biden praised the bipartisan vote and said he will sign the bill “promptly and proudly” if it is passed by the House. He said it will ensure that LGBTQ youth “will grow up knowing that they, too, can lead full, happy lives and build families of their own.” …

The legislation would not force any state to allow same-sex couples to marry. But it would require states to recognize all marriages that were legal where they were performed, and protect current same-sex unions,

This is a “landmark’ bill as it negates a law that was passed by the Congress of the USA and signed by then President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996. It was called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The main provisions of the act were as follows:

Section 1. Short title

This Act may be cited as the “Defense of Marriage Act”.

Section 2. Powers reserved to the states

No State, territory, or possession of the United States, or Indian tribe, shall be required to give effect to any public act, record, or judicial proceeding of any other State, territory, possession, or tribe respecting a relationship between persons of the same sex that is treated as a marriage under the laws of such other State, territory, possession, or tribe, or a right or claim arising from such relationship.

Section 3. Definition of marriage

In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word ‘marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word ‘spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.

The above is consistent with the Bible as well as the general history of humankind.

However despite Bill Clinton, a Democrat, signing this into law, after Barack Obama (another Democrat) became US President, who in violation of his oath of office committed an impeachable act by stating his Administration would not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

Former Democrat Dick Morris, who says it should be called the Defense of Cowards Act, put out the following about this bill:

Its real purpose is to set up a statutory basis for prosecuting or persecuting anyone who dissents and won’t personally co-operate with the new definition of marriage. It will go after bakers who won’t do a cake for a gay couple and all those whose religious principals do not permit them to sanction marriage between two men or two women.

The Democrats are jamming the bill through during the current lame duck session of Congress so that they can profit from the votes of about-to-be former senators who did not have the courage to vote yes, but now that they are out of harm’s way are willing to vote for this misguided law.

Notice also a late update to this article added to this article Wednesday afternoon:

November 30, 2022

Prior to the passage of the Respect Marriage Act, U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, proposed an amendment that would prohibit the federal government from retaliating against schools, businesses and organizations because of their religious beliefs about gay marriage.

Many legal scholars joined Lee, a constitutional law attorney, in arguing that the bill’s enshrinement of gay marriage in federal law provides legal grounds to prosecute or remove privileges and rights from individuals and institutions that hold to marriage as a lifelong conjugal union between one man and one woman.

The Lee amendment was defeated by a 49-48 vote.  …

“Why wouldn’t anyone want to deny the federal government the authority to retaliate against individuals, non-profits and other entities based on their sincerely held religious beliefs?” Lee asked his Senate colleagues.

Well to answer Senator Lee’s question, the truth is that the majority of Senators simply do not believe that protecting religious liberty is more important than pushing aspects of the LGBTQ+ agenda.

Interestingly, unlike US courts, Japan has again upheld a ban on homosexual marriage:

TOKYO, Nov 30 (Reuters) – A Tokyo court upheld a ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday …

While that may change in Japan, at least so far it has not totally bought into the homosexual lobby’s promotions.

That said, USA President Biden is wrong with this law that LGBTQ youth “will grow up knowing that they, too, can lead full, happy lives and build families of their own.”

That is not true. ‘Gays’ are not happy. LGBTQ+ types are more likely to be miseable than others as well as more likely to commit suicide according to various scientific studies.

Of course, many in the US government, not just Joe Biden but most Democrats and many Republicans, want people to believe that gender is fluid, transgenderism is fine, and supporting such is good.

That is also not true.

Those that believe the Bible realize that God created marriage, forbids homosexuality, and forbids transgenderism. Homosexuality and cross-dressing are abominations per Leviticus 18:22 and Deuteronomy 22:5, as well as other scriptures.

The Bible is clear that right after Eve (the first modern woman) was made, a marriage took place. The Old Testament records:

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

23 And Adam said:

“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:21-24)

A woman does not become a wife until after she marries. Marriage existed from the beginning of modern womanhood. The New Testament is also clear that God created marriage from the beginning:
4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” (Matthew 19:4-6)

Notice that God made humans male and female for marriage. The human body is “not for fornication” (1 Corinthians 6:13, KJV), nor for homosexual relations (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

The Bible condemns homosexuality and cross-dressing and warns of destruction related to even accepting such (e.g. Romans 1:18-32).

I read an article a couple of months ago that stated that if the government, academia, and/or the media can get people to believe that one’s gender is not based on biological facts, that they can get people to believe anything.

With that in mind, notice something a reader tipped me off to yesterday:

November 29, 2022

Every year Merriam-Webster picks a word to capture the culture of a moment in time. The choice is based on the frequency and quantity of search as well as the departure from the norm. This year the choice seems perfect: gaslighting. It’s drawn from the 1944 film noir starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman.

The term means to be subjected to extended psychological trickery to cause the victim to question his or own reality. In the film, Boyer plays a handsome stranger who meets the beautiful heiress Bergman on a foreign journey and they fall in love. He convinces her to marry and move back together to London to her family home, whereby he embarks upon a subtle campaign to convince her she is bonkers while he secretly searches the home for legacy jewels he intends to steal.

It’s painful to watch but the experience connects with our own as we watch mainstream media, see respectable scientists canceled for supposedly spreading disinformation, or when we watch a White House press conference. They try to convince us that they are normal and we are the crazy ones, probably guilty of wrongthink or not aware of the full facts. The more they insist on their version of truth, the more we are invited to see ourselves as nuts for failing to give them all the benefit of our doubt.

The film has this crucial moment when Bergman flips from believing that she is a broken spirit and confused person suddenly to realizing that she is the victim of an elaborate hoax. Once she realizes this, and all the pieces fall into place, she calls him out as a fraud and a thief. The film ends as this genre must in those days. He is arrested and the victim is made whole.

So it is for all of us over this past year, as vast numbers of people realize that we are being gaslit by major media, Big Tech, and government.

Yes, we continue to see such.

It is interesting that gaslighting was one of the most searched terms–in this age we are seeing more and more of it.

The Bible warns:

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!  (Isaiah 5:20-21)

The above applies to the LGBTQ+ promoters.

Consider also the following:

2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; (Exodus 23:2)

So, the Bible is warning about accepting evil, even if most do.

Furthermore, notice what the Apostle Paul wrote related to deceivers getting worse and worse, but that Christians need to still heed the scriptures:

12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  (2 Timothy 3:12-15)

Paul is telling us not to accept deceit, and that we need to be faithful to scripture.

Do not allow the government or the media or Big Tech, etc. to gaslight you into believing a lie.

God, not the State, created marriage, and real marriage involves a biological male and a biological female.

There is no other valid marriage in God’s eyes.

Do not be deceived.
