So called "gay marriage" has been voted down by Maine, making it having failed in all 31 states that has brought it before a vote of the people. This speaks louder than words, especially in Maine, a liberal morals state where homosexuals hoped that the trend would end.
However, the continual failure of the bill that would legalize a contract in immorality should signify to legislators, governors, and supporters that there is still some moral fiber left in the United States.
Supporters think that people who choose to live a lifestyle that is vehemently opposed to traditional values should be able to "marry" persons of the same sex. In my opinion, and evidently the opinion of the voters in Maine and 30 other states, they are wrong in their presumption.
Homosexuality is a sin, just as gossip, murder, drunkenness, idolatry, pornography, adultery, gluttony, lying, stealing, and coveting. In God's eyes, the eyes that ultimately matter most, there is no difference; they are all sin.
Our society is quietly decaying. Here in Oklahoma, in my lifetime, I have seen changes in liquor and gambling laws, even to the point where we have a State sponsored lottery. Church attendance is down, generally, until a national crisis happens, then all of a sudden, everyone "needs" God. God hasn't changed, nor have His views of sin.
Make no mistake: even if so-called "gay marriage" is ever voted as "legal", it will still be illegal in God's plan.
