Gomorrah Marriages Before the Supreme Court

Steven LeBlanc

The Supreme Court will hear arguments this week in two cases that have the potential to reshape American society. In oral arguments the 9 justices will consider if the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act can stop the U.S. government from recognizing same-sex marriages. Also being reviewed by the Justices is California’s voter approved ban on gay marriage–Proposition 8; does the “Prop 8” unfairly discriminates against gay people?

It will be no surprise to eventually see the Supreme Court put their stamp of approval on marriage between two men or two women. A nation that legalizes abortion and attaches no shame to “living together” relationships, out-of-wedlock births and yawns at a divorce rate that is the highest in the world is not about to suddenly stand up and say no to sodomite marriage.

Even hedonistic Rome did not recognize marriage between two men. When Emperor Nero temporarily legalized same-sex marriage, Roman citizens opposed his foolishness. The Roman historian, Tacitus, claims that when Nero “went through a formal wedding ceremony with one of the perverts named Pythagorus”, the act inflamed general public anger toward Nero and eventually led to his forced suicide (Annals 15.37).

Isaiah 1:10 cast our leaders today, as leaders of “Sodom”. Sodom is a word that expresses moral depravity, complacency and the hatred of God’s ordained order. Many of our politicians, media elites and even some church leaders approve of the Gomorrah lifestyle.

Alarmingly more and more Americans sheepishly favor sodomite marriage. Recent polls say that 48% favor “same-sex” marriage, while 43% are opposed. We have become a nation that cares little for God’s clear teaching. The rejection of God’s ways will lead to our destruction. Hosea 4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you…; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
