In 2000, California voted that marriage is between one man and one woman. This measure was approved by roughly 60% of the voters. Just last week the California Supreme Court decided to overturn the will of the people and redefine what marriage is and allow for same sex marriages. So my question then is what is the point to voting?
Dr James Dobson, from Focus on the Family, had a great article in response to this verdict handed down from the California Supreme Court.
Time and time again this issue has arisen on ballots in different states and the people have voted to preserve marriage as between one man and one woman. It is funny that the roots of marriage come from the Bible yet individuals think we should redefine it. The majority of the people in this nation do not want to redefine it but there is an agenda by others to impose their views on the majority.
Many might argue that same sex couple should have a right to be married. Unfortunately the Bible defines marriage between a man and a woman. Our society and the world has accepted that marriage is between a man and a woman. Even if you do not believe in God, then for the purpose of procreation, same sex marriage does not make sense.
Individuals of different races, sex, color, faith,or sexual orientation have rights in this country and should not be discriminated against. Please note that marriage is not a right given by the government but it is define by God. Society has accepted it and we should not force others to abandon their faith or redefine their faith. Then we are violating their rights if we force them to redefine their faith.
