a detestable act

Friday, October 10, 2104:

This date, in my home state of North Carolina, was one of the most disgusting events I have ever witnessed.  With the stroke of a pen, a US District Court Judge made same-sex marriages legal.  There, on the TV screen, reporters were interviewing homosexual couples thrilled they could finally and legally marry.  I almost became physically sick.  I’m a Christian, and it was a horrifying blow in the face of everything I believed, the Holy Bible, the Word of God.  It seems this nation is horribly and terribly sick, possibly on life support.

About two years ago, NC voters approved a constitutional amendment recognizing marriage only as a union between a man and a woman.  This judge overturned the ban, allowing homosexual couples to marry.  And so it has began...

Here are four Bible verses that are the clear and true words of God on the subject of homosexuality.  It’s a sin, not open for debate, it’s a detestable sin against God.

Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.
Leviticus 18:22 NLT

If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
Leviticus 20:13 NLT

Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality,
1 Corinthians 6:9 NLT

The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching
1 Timothy 1:10 NLT

Below is an article about the new law approved by man...  But, God’s law plainly says it’s a sin, a detestable act...
Gay marriage now legal in North Carolina

RALEIGH — Same-sex marriage became legal in North Carolina on Friday after a dizzying day of court filings that ended with a federal judge in the western part of the state nullifying the ban on such unions.

Scenes of jubilation, relief and an emotional sense of history erupted across the state.
U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn set off the rush to courthouses throughout the state with the stroke of his pen.

Cogburn was assigned this week to a lawsuit filed last year by clergy challenging North Carolina’s 2012 constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

At 5:32 p.m. Friday, he issued a ruling that is likely to become a part of the history books.

“The issue before this court is neither a political issue nor a moral issue,” Cogburn stated in his ruling. “It is a legal issue and it is clear as a matter of what is now settled law in the Fourth Circuit that North Carolina laws prohibiting same-sex marriage, refusing to recognize same-sex marriages originating elsewhere, and/or threatening to penalize those who would solemnize such marriages, are unconstitutional.”

All day Friday, gay couples had gathered at county register of deeds offices statewide, hoping to be among the first in North Carolina to legally wed.

“This is a historic day for freedom and equality in North Carolina,” said Jennifer Rudinger, executive director of the ACLU of North Carolina. “Thousands of North Carolinians are now able to marry the person they love and receive the dignity and legal security that comes with having that marriage recognized in their home state. For countless couples and their children, this victory is nothing short of life-changing.”
