Virginia Senate Advances Bill Prohibiting Punishment of Those Who Believe in Biblical Marriage

RICHMOND, Va. — Lawmakers in Virginia have passed a bill that prohibits the government from punishing those who believe in biblical marriage and conduct their public lives in accordance with that conviction.

S.B. 1324 passed the Senate on Tuesday 21-19, and now moves on to the House for consideration. The vote was along party lines.

“No person shall be required to participate in the solemnization of any marriage, or subject to any penalty by the Commonwealth, or its political subdivisions or representatives or agents, notwithstanding any other provision of law, solely on account of such person’s belief, speech, or action in accordance with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman,” the legislation reads.

Sen. Charles W. Carrico Sr., R-Grayson, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the bill is necessary to protect citizens from being sued simply because their faith prohibits them from being a partaker in others’ sins.

“And not discriminating against them because of that belief, I believe, is important to our Constitution and important to the economy of Virginia,” he said.

Carrico also pointed to Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s recent executive order requiring the state to only enter into government contracts with businesses and organizations that have anti-discrimination policies in place protecting homosexual and transgenders in “its employment practices, subcontracting practices, and delivery of goods or services.”

As previously reported, some believe the order effectively bans Christian entities and faith-based charities from working with the state, since they do not enact such policies out of their conviction that they retain the religious right to decline orders for “gay weddings” and similar celebrations, as well as to hire and fire in accordance with the religious values of the company or non-profit organization.

“It is hereby ordered as the policy of the Executive Branch that it will only contract with those who abide by the non-discrimination policies set forward in Executive Order 1 (2014), namely that discrimination on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, disability, or veteran status is prohibited,” Executive Order 61, signed by Terry McAuliffe on Jan. 5, reads in part.

Among those who decried the order was the Family Foundation of Virginia.

“Virginians should be appalled by this act of blatant religious bigotry,” said President Victoria Cobb. “As Virginia continues to slide further down on the list of states in which it’s best to do business, the Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General have no real solutions other than pandering to their base.”

“This unconstitutional act of intimidation and bullying of businesses and charities that are operated by people of faith, from Christians to Jews to Muslims, is not only unnecessary but dangerous,” she stated. “It is also in direct violation of the Virginia Constitution that states, ‘… the right to be free from any governmental discrimination upon the basis of religious conviction … shall not be abridged.’”

Cobb applauded the advancement of Carrico’s bill this week.

“This vote is a reasonable response to the unconstitutional act of intimidation and bullying of religious charities by Governor McAuliffe, charities that are operated by people of faith, from Christians to Jews to Muslims, that provide a vast array of services to vulnerable populations in Virginia,” she told reporters.

“The faith communities this bill applies to are doing enormous social good in Virginia, including aid to immigrants and refugees, the homeless, the hungry and the elderly. But the governor has targeted these organizations for state-sponsored discrimination because they disagree with his view of marriage,” she lamented.

Homosexual advocacy groups, such as the Human Rights Campaign, decried the bill as “discriminatory legislation that seeks to give taxpayer-funded agencies and service providers a license to discriminate against LGBTQ people under the guise of religion.”

    Sad that this type of law is needed in the country founded by those who escaped religious persecution in their home countries.

    • james blue

      But they brought persecution with them, they simply became the persecutors instead of the persecuted.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        You are wrong. The Puritans were the best superb educators who have so much to learn from and copy after. Americans have no morality apart from Christianity.

        • tatoo

          That is why Anne Hutchinson and Riger Williams had to leave and establish their own colonies. They were persecuted. And, of course, all those witches got killed.

            You don’t know history at all. No such person as Riger Williams.

          • RWH

            Roger Williams founded Rhode Island as a harbor for people to escape the religious persecution by the Puritans in the New England colonies. You should have no problems finding information about him in any history book.

            Sodomic Americans persecute humans for not-endorsing homosexuality.

          • james blue

            Don’t forget the Quakers.

        • james blue

          Try reading a history book.

        • RWH

          The Puritans lasted for about one year. They were so depleted after the first winter when so many died that they joined with the Puritans. The Puritans believed in religious freedom only for themselves. They persecuted all others.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            They did not persecute but set up a community upon covenants; Protestant Reformers created religious freedom, a concept which did not exist before on Planet Earth. Puritans showed the most noble way to live for all. American Christians found what work and what do not work for people over the years. Puritan-bashing America has become a homosexual dystopia on earth only after a few hundered years.

            Americans of yesteryears, whatever their flaws were, are incomparably better than today’s baby-killing sexually-depraved Americans. You guys should respect your own white Christian ancestors and founders because they are better than everyone else on earth. Freedom is not everything; morality is vital, too. Christian Americans have been always respected by the entire world, but Sodomic Americans are despised.

          • RWH

            I suggest that you go back to the books and read about Roger Williams, Ann Hutchinson, and Thomas Morton. Those are three among many that the Puritans persecuted because they wouldn’t conform to Puritan standards. Then, may I suggest that you do a bit of research into the Salem Witchcraft trials. People were informing on each other like crazy. It was only when someone indited Cotton Mather, merchant field a libel lawsuit, and the King of England intervened that this stopped. Cotton and Increase Mather had a fit when Governor Andros was sent from England to set up law and order, and established Anglican worship in Boston.

            You may admire the Puritans, but they were not nice people.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are wrong. Puritans are the nicest Americans. Today’s Americans are the real nightmare; they are totally well-fed only because of the Puritan contributions but force mankind homosexuality and infanticide out of boredom. Mankind learned a noble way of living and love of God’s truth from American Puritans. American Puritans also established religious freedom; mankind did not even know freedom’s existence. You Americans do not know your own white Christian ancestors. You guys are far more well-fed than your honest hard-working slender Christian forefathers and should shut up about them who are morally better. Lose weight first if you want to bash your Christian ancestors. America has no virtue apart from American Puritans.

          • RWH

            It’s been a long time since I met someone so ignorant of American colonial history yet so opinionated. I don’t know what types of books you read, but I can guarantee that they got their degrees from submitting three Crackerjack box-tops and a paragraph stating why they deserve a fake diploma. Go read some works published by reputable scholars, and you will discover how wrong you are about the Puritans. Puritans did not believe in religious freedom for anyone but themselves. Any book about Quaker or Baptist history will make that perfectly clear. The Great Revival which took place before the American Revolution was led by none other than George Whitfield, and Anglican clergyman. The Puritans resisted him, but by that time, Puritanism was quite weakened.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are wrong because you narrow down Puritanism too much, being a Non-christian. Puritanism was preserved and inherited by most Protestant churches and goes on to this day all over the world as the normal Protestant Christian lifestyle. American colonialists were normal average hard-working people. You must also remember that it was only the British Christians and American Christians alone who made fuss about slavery and child prostitution and freed mankind and brought literacy and longevity; pagan mankind have had no problem conducting evils.

            Today’s Westerners should lose weight and give up their wealth and then complain about their honest hard-working white Christian ancestors. You guys look like rotten kids from rich homes bashing their own good moral parents. Stop making money by showing off the creation world and church buildings, either. The former is God’s work and the latter is Christian works. You guys have been better-off only because of your hard-working white Christian forefathers.

          • RWH

            Gad Zooks, Grace! Puritanism started to self destruct when they instituted the half-way covenant which told people that they were “saved” because their grandfathers were saved. Puritanism devolved into the United Church of Christ, the Presbyterians (in its many forms), and Unitarianism. The Methodists and the Baptists were the groups that sprang out from the Great Revival, and when one thinks of the expansion to the West, it was the Baptists and the Methodists. Both had nothing to do with Puritanism, and Puritanism persecuted them–as exemplified by Roger Williams. Evans American Abstracts literally has every document published in the United States from the beginnings through 1800. Every document. A lot of rancor existed between Roger Williams and the Mathers, who threw anathemas at Williams since he was safe in Rhode Island. Methodism, and the Baptists (and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) are American phenomena. Wesley long after the 1620 settlements, and one does not really know of Baptists outside of the US. Mormanism is home grown.

            Concerning slavery, the Baptists and the Methodists split because the southern Methodists and Baptists found Scriptural support of slavery. In fact, right up to the 1960s, Bob Jones Sr. of Bob Jones University preached that one could not be a Christian and not believe in segregation. And he found Scripture to prove his point. These tracts should be hard to find because BJU doesn’t like to showcase this sort of history. Jerry Falwell also believed this, but he changed his mind when he realized that he was on the losing side. The Southern Baptists never reconciled with the Northern ones, but back in the early 1980s, the Southern/Northern Methodists and the Presbyterians reunited.

            Again, do some research. No reputable scholar would ever agree with your assessment ever. It doesn’t do you service to proclaim stuff that is so blatantly untrue that even a child could see how wrong you are.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Many Protestant Christians don’t drink alcohol, use clean language, are abstinent from sexual immorality, keep the Lord’s Day holy by dedicating the whole day, and give their children Christian education by mimicking the Puritans. No other Christian groups were that specific excellent. The mainliners went deadly wrong only in recent decades by ordaining females and supporting homosexuality and infanticide by going against the Holy Bible. Non-Calvinists are not good at keeping the sound doctrines of Christianity anyway.

            Slavery was abolished by the white Biblical Christians who believed all men are equal under God and the Bible-educated colored people. Men had no other reason for equality. Segregation for a time helped preserve the races. It’s racism of all mankind to just demand the white race to mingle but not to other races. Scholars often go wrong by seeing only the branches and not the whole. Liberals are no scholars of anything anyway. They never read the Holy Bible even once.

          • RWH

            Well, isn’t it a relief that you have absolutely no standing to determine what is true Christian faith for the rest of us. You now have our permission to stand alongside of Christ and declare that you’re better than the rest of us because you don’t drink and keep the Lord’s day. And goodie for you that you believe that Calvin was right and everyone else was wrong.

            By the way, slavery was abolished by only a group of “white” Christians. There were many other “white” Christians that felt that slavery was ordained of God. In fact, nobody in the Bible condemned slavery. Paul told Philemon to be a good slave. Your ideas on segregation are too repulsive for any type of commentary. And for your information, it was the theological liberals of the nineteenth century that were most vocal in their beliefs in the abolishment of slavery. Henry Ward Beecher was one of the most vocal of them, and he was a theological liberal. Also, the so-called liberals have studied the Bible, and they know what is written in the Bible. They just see the complexities that many others choose to ignore, and they come up with different conclusions than you. For example, Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel. When Cain went into exile, he found another civilization. Where did they come from? Go to conservative Sunday School, and you get in trouble for asking that question.

          • Jason Todd

            Would you call yourself a Christian?

          • RWH

            What a nice sanctimonious answer. So prissy! Rather than deal with issues, your only attempt at a response is a haughty put down. I can play that game too. Based on your other responses, let me respond in kind. Do you still beat your wife? Your attitude indicates that you don’t respect women.

          • Jason Todd

            No, it is a simple question.

            Can you answer without resorting to needless vitriol?

          • RWH

            Yes, I’m a Christian. Answering you is like casting pearls to the feet of swine. I’m not your type of Christian, so in your book I will never be a Christian because your mind is made up. If we don’t think in the narrow Pharisaical way that you think, we’re heathens in your book. By your various answer throughout these posts, you’re concerned with your opinions rather than genuine concerns for others. I taught at two fundamentalist colleges for a decade. I have seen your type. Their wives are afraid to cross their husbands, and horrors if the wife gets a job that has more status and pays more than the husband. I have seen women work as cleaning women rather than what they are really qualified to do so that they can “save” their marriage. On more than one occasion I have witnessed episodes where the husband was sleeping around with other women, and the pastor faulted the wife because she didn’t take care of herself or was not submissive enough to her husband. This type also has no sympathy to women who experience rape.

          • Jason Todd

            You, a Christian? Someone who has a blatant disregard for the Word of God?

            You favor abortion. You defend homosexuality. Those things aren’t biblical.

            1 Timothy 6 tells us those who would teach false doctrine should be ignored.

            And so you are. Blocked.

          • RWH

            I’m blocked? That is wonderful news! Dealing with people like you is like talking to a door jamb. Your mind is made up. You don’t want to see that issues are not stark blacks and whites but all sorts of shades of gray. As I said before, it is useless telling you that I’m a Christian and that Christ loves me as much as you. Your mind is made up. I prefer to see people as complex human beings, all who need love and compassion. I’m not interested in cutting people off by labeling them and then dismissing them. You can think whatever you want. It does not affect my relationship with Christ. I’m not interested in sitting in the corner and crying about how the world doesn’t see things my way. And by the way. I don’t “support abortion.” I support helping a woman cope and then letting her make her own decisions rather than me making them for her. If she has an abortion, she is the one who has to deal with the consequences just as she would have to deal with the consequences for any other decision that she makes. Life is full of very hard decisions. Every good decision always has some barbs in it.

            You are not Christian. Stop pretence. You must repent of your unbelief to get saved. Read John chapter 3 and Romans chapter 10.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            There are always more Biblical ones among the Christians. Non-Biblical ones are not Christian and probably New Agers in practice. You are wrong on slavery. More Biblical people always understood slavery was wrong from the beginning. It took many years but the Biblical Christians abolished slavery and established freedom for all. Today, unborn children await for abolishment of infanticide, although mainline apostates support the massacre. Adam and Eve had a lot of children. And the naming of places was done by Adam and Eve, and even by Cain and his generation, not already-existing.

  • james blue

    So can a person specifically refuse to serve Christian marriages?

      • james blue

        Why would they have to be gay?

        So bakers can refuse cakes, photographers, venues caterers… all can refuse to serve Christian marriages. County clerks can refuse to issue licenses,

        • TwoRutRoad

          Oh, MAN, would I love to see the outrage if a county clerk refused to issue a marriage license to a Christian couple because it was against their religion!

          • james blue

            It would certainly be interesting, but I feel I’ve already heard every argument as to why that would be “different”

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    White men need Christianity for obtaining sane morality. America, please don’t become like Nazi Germany by abandoning Christianity. The West should not force mankind to adhere to the sin of homosexuality. White men and their mental servants need more number of descendants to sustain a nationhood and should not do this suicidal thing or ruin other people’s children by teaching homosexuality. No Bible = No human rights or freedom.

    • tatoo

      Some white men need Christianity to prevent them from doing evil deeds like Nazi Germany which was composed of Christians.

        baloney ……. and you do not know history …. AH was an occultist and therefore not christian ….. he followed HP Blavatsky and Thule Society and the Vril and other occult practices …… and most of the german government hierarchy nazis were homosexual and pedophiles …..

      • Roy Hobs

        What evil deeds did the nsdap do?

      • Makamae101

        It’s REALLY clear you know nothing of history, and only know leftist propaganda. Hitler took control of all churches in Germany, dictating what they preached, and forcing them to spew propaganda. Those who didn’t were killed. Look up Dietrich Bonhoffer.

        • Roy Hobs

          Context is everything regarding Bonhoffer. He wasn’t hanged because of his Theology — or his exegesis. He was hanged for being involved in a plot to kill Hitler. The NSDAP did not force churches or religious leaders to tailor their exegesis. Do you know the penalty for Treason in most countries/nations? I’m not saying it was right. But treason will get you killed. Except for the USA of 2016. Treason and spying are now the norms. but that is a different post.

          • Makamae101

            The Nazi party DID take over the churches. Crosses were replaced with Hitler’s picture.

            I didn’t say Bonhoffer just died because of his faith, though he was banned from teaching openly.

          • Roy Hobs

            “…dictating what they preached, and forcing them to spew propaganda…..
            Just not accurate. Too broad.

          • Makamae101

            Maybe this will help. From Christianity Today:

            “Bonhoeffer was outspoken in his opposition to the Nazis and was willing to speak out not just about Hitler’s dictatorship but also his euthanasia programme and the Jewish holocaust. Bonhoeffer had many opportunities to escape Germany; yet deliberately chose to continue his work serving the Confessing Church, a group of churches that refused to allow their pulpits to be used for Nazi propaganda. In 1943, just after getting engaged, Bonhoeffer was arrested and taken to Tegel prison and then later to Flossenburg where he was exectuted.”

          • Roy Hobs

            Makamae……….you originally said — “dictating what they preached, and forcing them to spew propaganda…”
            This is just plain incorrect. You ought to watch “The Greatest Story Never Told” by Dennis Wise to have some “balance” and “context” if you are going to criticize the NSDAP.

          • Jason Todd

        Roy, the Western nations will force everyone homosexuality at this rate; this madness must be countered by all normal humans now. Do you know what it is like – after being exploited everything and then made the children brainwashed to be sexually depraved by the same filthy humanists? Thankfully, Secular West and its mental servants are going extinct with childlessness as prophesied but the crises continue because they abuse other people’s healthy children. Americans are not useful or helpful if they are not Christian.

        It’s Western white men and their mental slaves who advance and fund homosexuality like some madmen on Planet Earth to subdue the entire mankind with immorality. Shame on you. Slavery this time is not working in cotton fields but bowing and serving the bored pervs. Being rich brings mental problems. You guys should sweat and work for your daily bread instead of receiving everything from someone else.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I try not to be. If I’m a racist, all Earthlings are racist. Monolinguals never discover what other races and tribes are thinking. Use translators to face the reality. Telling you on reality does not mean being racist. Secular Westerners are the real racists, putting colored peoples and sexually immoral people in the same category and chant equality. Having darker skin is nothing wrong; sin is wrong. Sin has no equal rights with anything. Unrepentant sinners need to hear the calls for repentance so they can get saved instead of perishing in sins. Christians are the only humans who are benefitial to everyone. Secularists only corrupt everyone.

          • Off Shore

            Everyone needs salvation not just Western white men.

            “all Earthlings are racist.”
            I can just hear you at the Great White Throne Judgement…

            But they all do it so I did also!

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You will be judged for systematic enslavery of women by promoting polygamy besides spreading your destructive false doctrines. You must repent of your sins and ask Jesus for forgiveness to get saved. Mormonism is no Christianity. Read John chapter 1-3. Jesus is God and there is no salvation other than by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.

            All men are racists one way or another. Moderners are just good at saying that they are not racist but they actually are, especially all the Westerners who link inter-racial marriage to homosexual “marriage.” They are the worst racists against all colored people. Being colored is not a sin, but being homosexual or transgender is a sin.

            “You will be judged for systematic enslavery of women by promoting polygamy”

            CHAPTER AND VERSE for the ten millionth time, not your ignorant opinion.

            “destructive false doctrines”

            You said doctrines as plural which one are false and again please give CHAPTER AND VERSE, not you opinion.

            “You must repent of your sins and ask Jesus for forgiveness to get saved.”
            I was saved years ago and my sins were forgiven nearly 2,000 years ago.

            “Mormonism is no Christianity.”
            Show me where I said anything about Mormonism being Christian. It is a cult, so show me one line where I promoted it, you can’t.

            “Jesus is God and there is no salvation other than by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.”

            We agree on this completely.

            “who link inter-racial marriage to homosexual “marriage.””
            I get it now you are bitter that someone hurt you about being inter-racially married and now you are lashing out. I suggest you seek counseling and therapy about you situation and condition. Not all men are racist I know you think so because you are, but that is a figment of your imagination and of your bitter mind. Please get some counseling and therapy you are only hurting yourself God will not bless people that can’t forgive others.

            “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 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’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.

            …Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

            …Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” – Matthew 19:4-6, Hebrews 14:3, Revelation 22:14,15.

            You are not a Mormon? How come you believe in polygamy? Are you New Age? Universalist? Unitalian? Could you tell me your denomination? You are not saved if you don’t believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and He is raised from the dead. Romans chapter 10 and I Corinthians chaptere 15. If you have really believed in Jesus, you’d never have supported the sin of polygamy. True Christians do not live in known sins unrepentantly. Read The Book of James and 1 John.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            All your Bible verses support monogamy of one man and one woman. White people are being lawless when they adavance the legality of homosexuality and transgenderism. You guys need Christian missionaries to become civilized.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You have misunderstood me. I’m not inter-racially married but married within the same race. I’m very upset that today’s white people now link inter-racial marriage and homosexual sins by treating the two as the same thing, which reveals how much they still look down on all colored people. And they teach sexual immorality in schools not just in media and entertainment, and they persecute the Christians for not-serving gay weddings and encourage and fund the sins in my home countries.

            I really think it’s abnormal that today’s Westerners and young people force everyone to endorse such sexual depravity and the falsehood of transgenderism. There are homosexuals and transgenders everywhere, granted, but what could be the reason of the Western people and their young followers having no problem with it?

            Because they are good-looking( Does it affect a human being to have sexual lust for the same-sex members)? Because they are used to watch adults’ nudity since childhood? Unhealthily being left alone as a baby in one’s own room? The worship of the rule of the law ignoring the moral Christian values?

            Or some polluted waters that destroy healthy mind and genes? What could be the cause of the West this century forcing homosexuality upon the world? In any case, I do not want to be persecuted by the Westerners for not-serving their legal immorality, and I’m voicing what I could while there is still freedom. This whole thing is ridiculous, and I had enough hard time from the racists of my own race anyway.

            It seems God is having mercy on all rich secular nations this century by bringing in the Muslim population. Everyone follows Westerners’ cultural monopoly on Earth; we’d have a total Sodom’s reign if there were not this Muslim presence in our midst. I’m not talking about any terrorists, but just average Muslims.

            The Lord knows, but I think this Western “legal” inclination to homosexuality is absolutely abnormal. The world must speak up for the sake of Western children. I hear there is a pandemic of mental illness among the Western liberals. No wonder; they’ve been taken away normal morality since childhood.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            It’s nothing to do with forgiveness. I have forgiven everyone as a Christian long ago because Jesus forgave my sins and He died for me and is alive today. Today’s liberal Westerners look like the slave owners and Nazi officers. Their attitude is this: “Serve homosexual weddings and endorse homosexual ‘marriage’ and acknowledge the people who claim to be the opposite gender, all against the Word of God and the Christian religion, or we will ruin you in every possible way.”

            This is clearly the tyrannical attitude of slave owners; the ones who try to control others with evil and falsehood. I wonder if the white people are aware of it. And they do this to the Christians alone and not to the Muslims, though the Muslims and the Jews oppose homosexuality, too. Everyone must see this evil of Western liberals, though the Western culture and its young people no longer care what is true or fair anymore. Anyway, following today’s Western culture is a disgrace as a human being not just as a Christian.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You’ve been pretty sick to my sight in upholding polygamy. I’ve met only Mormons who’d do that. No Catholic or Protestant Christians support polygamy, because it’s too clear from the entire Holy Bible that polygamy is not God’s will or design. God did not punish every polygamist for a time just as He did not punish every slave owner in illiterate era and every cannibal who ate dead human bodies in a real starvartion situation.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Another reason I write in a Christian new site is because I get news that the real goal of Western liberals is sexualizing children and making pedophilia legal. Homosexuality gives humans permission to have lust over anyone and anything, so that is realistic. This must be opposed by everyone by all means. Serving gay weddings would be bending of God’s truth and a conscience,

            but having children brainwashed to have sex with anyone in any age is truly evil crazy. Something worse than Nazi Youth movement. If there are nuke rains, secular nations could blame their own heinous perv inclinations. All Christians must pray against and voice against this Nazi Sodomism. God will not spare our world anyway, but Christians must always evangelize and teach everyone on God’s truth to the end.

    I am not sure what biblical marriage is? Just sleeping together?

    • Marshall P

      Man + woman.

      Anything else is just a parody of the real thing. Gays and lesbians lack the capacity for love and commitment.

      • johndoe

        Proof please? One of the more absurd comments I’ve seen.

        • Marshall P

          “Proof”?
          How about 10,000 years of recorded human HISTORY in which there was no such thing as “same-sex marriage”?

          You are the most historically ignorant people on earth. You don’t learn history by hanging around bars and restrooms.

          • Roy Hobs

            It is Ironic isn’t it that these people defending homosexual sex are all products of male and female procreation.
            I’ve heard of the conspiracy of “fluoride” in our water. I NOW BELIEVE IT! LOL.

          • johndoe

            We used to not have electricity and running water but through progress and change….. How has gay marriage harmed you? What people are you referring to? What does 10,000 yrs have to do with people lacking the capacity for love and commitment? It’s not just man + woman any longer.

          • Scott Davenport

            Because you disgusting people won’t STFU and just go away already. Get out of our faces before we’re forced to take out each and every one of you.

            If only we could see into the future and use abortions for the only thing they are truly useful for…eliminating liberalia…..

          • johndoe

            LMAO? You’re as scary as a kitten! Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing .

          • antifasciste

            Were you bullied by members of the Middle School Physics Club?

          • antifasciste

            10,000 years? I thought ~6500 years was the magic number for creationists. Marriage is a social construct with no basis in objective truth.

    • Roy Hobs

      That is a great question! Why do Christians never ask this question? Where are the guidelines for Biblical marriage. What constitutes whether a man and women are married. Christians never ask and the Christian Institutions never teach. I have a few thoughts at areyoumarried dot wordpress dot com

      • Emmanuel

        I just read your blog. Cool piece.

        • Roy Hobs

          Thank you. I hope you answered the Polls. When I “got saved” as Christians like to say, I was living with a woman. My first question was, “How do I get married?” “What does the Bible say about how to be married?”
          You would think this ‘question’ would be at the forefront of EVERYONE who loves the Lord and desires to please Him. Sadly this is not the case.
          If we were to Poll 100 Christians and asked them what is the most important decisions a man makes in their lifetime, I’ll venture to guess “who to marry” would be in the top 3. “Marriage” is the second most important decision a man or woman makes in their lifetime. So why don’t Christians consult thee BIBLE for God’s ‘marriage’ design. Peace to you.

          • Emmanuel

            I agree with you. This is a topic that I do not shy away from in Sunday school. We need to talk about marriage, fornication, adultery and so on. There is a holy way to live and we have to teach it. Blessings and have a great weekend.

          • Roy Hobs

            Amen. Would enjoy speaking with you if interested. Just leave a message at the blog. I’d very much like to hear your testimony. Blessings.

        You marriage theology is off just a little bit, but at least your trying which is more than most.
        All for His Glory!

        • Roy Hobs

          Please enlighten me then. Leave a comment on the blog. Teach me where I have miss-stepped. Thanks.

        • Michael C

          Roy Hobs’ comment history speaks for itself. You might find a few things that are “off just a little bit” in his own words. For example, he has stated on this very website that “diversity is white genocide” and has said much, much, much worse on websites like the New Nationalist and the Traditionalist Youth Network.

      Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman in which they both vow to a lifelong, faithful relationship in which physical sexual interaction is meant to operate for the purpose of making them one flesh, sharing love between them, and to procreate and fill the earth with gifts from God, children.

      Covenants/contracts are established by making an oath that creates and agreement between two or more parties until the contract has/is ended per contractual agreement. In marriage the covenant/contract can only be ended by infidelity or death.

  • Roy Hobs

    Two of the “sins of the flesh” which will deny a man’s entrance into Heaven are Adultery and Fornication. Very serious sins.
    Both Jesus and Paul taught that the woman married who takes a second husband while the first husband lives, is an adulterer. And a perpetual adulterer as long as sexual relations continue. Both the woman and the new husband are adulterers. Adulterers will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
    Shouldn’t this be important? How does one know whether they are taking for a wife a woman who is already joined to a man? Why do the Christian Institutions NEVER teach “how” to be married and “who” is eligible?
    Is this the ultimate deception — Revelation 12:9?

    So…will anyone honestly say they are against this bill because they honestly believe people should be forced to submit to the concept of same-sex marriage regardless of beliefs?

    • Michael C

      Churches, mosques, synagogues, pastors, ministers, clergy, etc. are all free to refuse to hold whatever ceremony they please. The First Amendment has protected this right for over two hundred years.

      If this legislation was just a reiteration of those protections, I would think it silly, superfluous and a was of taxpayer-funded time and energy. …but I wouldn’t oppose it. If passing the same law a hundred times over makes you feel better, have at it.

      Unfortunately, the parameters of this legislation might be ill defined. It could be interpreted as a license to discriminate against married same-sex couples in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodations. No matter how you read it, the fact that it singles out gay people as deserving of discrimination is quite clear.

    Terry McAuliffe is a bigot and a fool. He needs to be brought to his knees, either in repentance or in shame. He is an anti-God, anti-Christian man who, hopefully one day, will be taught a painful lesson. He has continually brought anti-Christian legislation to the forefront of his governorship. He is a scumbag!
