Editorial: Liberal court damages America

The Supreme Court decision to force the entire nation to legalize homosexual marriage will have devastating long-term and short-term effects.

Tension is building between the secularists who want to erase any trace of Christian influence and decent Americans who hold to traditional and Biblical values. When the tipping point in this battle occurs is anyone’s guess but the signs are that it is close to boiling over.

The rise of homosexuality parallels the decline of every major civilization. Despite revisionist rants, the Bible – both in the Old Testament (Leviticus) and the New Testament (Romans, I Corinthians) – clearly condemns homosexuality.

Jesus did not address homosexuality specifically but he did affirm that marriage is between one man and one woman for life.

Homosexuality has been around forever. The difference now is that its sanction by the U.S. Supreme Court puts an official governmental endorsement on it. The court should have confirmed the right of states to define marriage but judicial activism is at such an elevated state that judges can’t resist creating new laws to fit their politically correct agenda.

And the greatest victims of this decision are those poor souls caught up in a homosexual lifestyle. It is filled with disease, physical danger, social rejection and spiritual depravity. This is comparable for the court to rule that states can’t outlaw public drunkenness. This is a gross misinterpretation under the 10th Amendment.

Can America reverse its course? Yes. But thanks to a wrong-headed Supreme Court, the path back to sanity got much longer.
