You remember your wedding day, don’t you? Your pastor rejoiced, “I now pronounce you… spouse and spouse!”
That’s not what your pastor pronounced?
He didn’t declare you “spouse and spouse?”
Well, then he messed up. He is behind the times. You’re telling me he used antiquated terms like ‘husband’ and ‘wife?’
You’re telling me he pronounced you, before God and the assembly, “husband and wife?”
That is SO outdated!
IT’S HARD TO OVERSTATE
In case you did not catch the headline, here it is.
“IRS: ‘Husband’ and ‘wife’ apply to same-sex couples, too” (FoxNews.com 10/21/15).
That’s right. The Internal Revenue Service of the US government has determined that, finally, at last, the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ are virtually meaningless.
They will now recognize any gay couple as being ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ for tax filing purposes.
And who can blame them? I mean, this is just the beginning of the aftermath of the catastrophic Supreme Court case that legalized sodomy in the USA.
The IRS is just applying the illogic of the five clowns in black robes in the US Supreme Court. When they invented a Constitutional “right” for so-called “gay marriage,” this was bound to happen.
It is hard to overstate how devastating this buffoonery will affect this country for the rest of history.
THINK ABOUT IT
So, according to the Supreme Court and the IRS, there are no such things as ‘husbands’ and ‘wives.’ For all practical purposes, married folks are just ‘spouse and spouse.’
In fact, in July 2014, Governor Jerry Brown of California beat the IRS to the punch. He signed a bill into law saying as much for the state of California.
He signed a bill replacing the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ with ‘spouse and spouse.’
Thus, if there is no such thing as a ‘husband’ or a ‘wife,’ then there really is no reason to recognize or respect the terms ‘male’ and ‘female’ any longer.
This is a conclusion drawn by many left-wing progressives already. They want to pretend as though humanity is not split into two genders. They want to rewrite human nature to be fungible, malleable and thus, relative.
For, if they can succeed in this, then they have rendered human nature obsolete. The Creator of that human nature will have been, effectively, conquered. Human freedom achieved, at last, they think.
ONE SMALL PROBLEM
There remains one small problem with their plan. Okay, maybe it is a rather large one.
They cannot escape the Natural Law innate in each person. People can pretend to not know the rigidity of human sexuality. But, in the end, they are fooling themselves.
People have tried to put this nonsense into practice, but it doesn’t turn out how they imagined.
People who undergo sex-change operations don’t find their missing happiness after the procedure. They realize their issues are deeper than their personal appearance or gender identification.
Children raised by same-sex parents are put at a disadvantage to those raised by stable homes with a mother and father.
And children bred in test tubes through IVF technology maintain a feeling of loss their entire lives. They often do not know the identity of one or both of their biological parents. Thus, they report a sorrow in not knowing part, or all of their heritage.
When we mess with God’s design, the fallout is going to be dramatic. This we are seeing unfolding before our very eyes.
‘SPOUSE AND SPOUSE’
The US government can pretend married couples need merely to be a ‘spouse and spouse.’ And they can sanction and federally protect sterile, sodomitic relationships.
But in so doing, they are making a host of problematic pronouncements on society.
In effect, by recognizing so-called “gay marriage,” they are rendering marriage meaningless. For, marriage involves, in part, the ability to fulfill acts, which in themselves are suitable for the procreation of children.
Since, by definition, every so-called “gay marriage” is sterile, it is impossible to fulfill the meaning of marriage. But hey, the US government ignores that criteria.
By making this judgment, the US government, in effect, has told its citizens children are not the natural byproduct of a loving, fruitful marriage between a husband and wife. In fact, children and their rights are not even to be considered in this Brave New World.
No, sir. <--Oops, I used a gender-specific term! I can't escape reality like all these liberal loonies.
For, in this backwards world, marriage exists solely for the emotional benefit of the adults involved. Children are an afterthought—an accessory, like a speed boat or a pet, at best. They are not essentially, necessary, or even a consideration in this remade world.
If there is no such thing as a ‘husband’ or a ‘wife,’ then there is no longer a ‘father’ or a ‘mother’ either. The entire domestic family, therefore, crumbles away.
The US government cannot claim to.
And hey, just remember this comforting thought: they run the public school system filled with all those children!
What’s your take on the US government essentially declaring a ‘husband’ and a ‘wife’ now a ‘spouse and spouse?’
