After the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on same-sex marriage, Franklin Graham made the following statement on his Facebook page:
The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled today that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it.
Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman—Almighty God—and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any manmade court. God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).
I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.
The book of Proverbs gives us this precise summary:
An unjust man is abominable to the righteous,
And he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked (29:27).
The movements behind so-called same-sex “marriage” have been very demanding that they be given all the rights and privileges of traditional marriages. They want people to be tolerant of them yet when they are opposed in any way, they themselves are extremely intolerant.
One cannot support same-sex unions while hearing God’s voice and walking with Him. The Word of God speaks very plainly about such lifestyles and pronounces judgment on those who participate. God sometimes chooses to execute judgment very quickly on the living, and at other times He delays judgment giving people an opportunity to repent and live according to His instructions. However, judgment on sin is absolutely certain.
As Jonah warned the people of Nineveh many years ago: repent for judgment is coming. The final decision by a higher court is coming.
