This (Baptist Press – Iowa judge orders ‘gay marriage’ legalized – News with a Christian Perspective) is a shocking story. That an activist judge has tried to impose his will on the whole of the people of the state is bad enough but what is truly shocking is the comments he makes in the ruling.
The judge said “marriage has evolved over time” and that “homosexuality is a normal expression of human sexuality.” He also said of the traditional view of marriage that it reflects “old and overbroad stereotypes.” He also wrote that it is “well-established that children do not need a parent of each gender to be well adjusted” and that “children do not need male and female role models in the home to develop normally.”
The story points out that “Hanson’s decision overturned a defense of marriage act passed by the legislature and signed into law in the late 1990s. He ruled that the law violated both the due process and equal protection clauses of the Iowa constitution.”
What right does this judge have to order changes in any law. The last time I checked judges were supposed to interpret the laws that are on the books not implement laws that they want on the books. Where in our national Constitution or any state constitution are judges given the power to make and implement laws?
CHRISTIAN CALL TO ACTION: Christians – we are supposed to be proclaiming the truth of God’s Word. We are failing to do so and things like this are happening. It is time that Christians speak out and get involved. Our country is deteriorating fast because of we are not willing to take a stand. Be BOLD!! It is His battle….STAND FIRM…..SPEAK OUT……PROCLAIM THE TRUTH……and above all PRAY CONTINUOUSLY.
