New York State approves gay marriage law

NY legalizes gay marriage 42 years after Stonewall

"Champagne corks popped, rainbow flags flapped and crowds embraced and danced in the streets of Manhattan's Greenwich Village as New York became the sixth and largest state in the U.S. to legalize same-sex marriage. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill shortly before midnight Friday, almost 42 years to the day that the modern-day gay rights movement was born amid violent encounters between police and gay activists at the Stonewall Inn."

According to secular experts,When New York became the sixth and by far the largest state to legalize same-sex marriage, following a grueling overtime session in the state Legislature on Friday, it immediately transformed the national debate over the issue, legal experts said. ... "I think that having same-sex marriage in New York will have tremendous moral and political force for the rest of the country -- in part because New York is a large state, and in part because it hasn't come easily," said Suzanne Goldberg, a professor at Columbia Law School. The New York Assembly passed same-sex marriage legislation twice before, in 2007 and 2009, but in both cases it stalled in the state Senate, as it nearly did again this week. The bill passed late on Friday after legislators agreed on language allowing religious organizations to refuse to perform services or lend space for same-sex weddings. The new law's impact can be measured in part by the numbers at play: New York is home to more than 42,000 same-sex couples, according to an analysis of U.S. census data conducted by the Williams Institute. This means, among other things, that the number of same-sex couples living in states allowing same-sex marriage has more than doubled overnight."

Wasn't that nice of them, to provide a footnote acknowledging that at the moment at least, the law won't force people who honor God to dishonor Him by performing unbiblical marriages.

The photo above of the "revelers" in the streets exulting in the passage of the gay marriage law reminds me of what it will look like during the Tribulation, when revelers do all sorts of ungodly celebrating. One of those ungodly celebrations will be when the Two Witnesses are killed and they dance in the streets and send gifts over their dead bodies. "And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 11:10)

The bible regards homosexuality as immoral. Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; and in 1 Corinthians 6:9 it is noted that the homosexual will not inherit the kingdom. Because of their unbelief, God gave them over to their degrading lusts. (Romans 1:24). The model for our marriages is the first marriage and that was between a man and a woman.

We can no longer think of the NY gay marriage law, which failed two times previously, as a Sisyphean effort. Sisyphus was the mythological man who was condemned by the 'gods' to eternally roll a rock up a mountain, only to have it roll back to the bottom again just as it reached the top. The rock has reached the top and has been loosed on the other side. It will gather steam as the forward progression of immorality continues ever faster in this labor pang world.

Our Jesus is a forgiving Savior and will open His arms to anyone who repents. God hates sin but He loves His children, and He wants to help them remove themselves from their degrading lusts with the aid of the Holy Spirit. He is gracious, and will send the Spirit to all who repent. He will regenerate that person into a new creation, one that is righteous and pure in His eyes.

For those who refuse to repent however, Jesus is the Rock.

As Daniel interprets Nebuchadnezzar 's dream: "You, O king, were looking and behold, there was a single great statue; that statue, which was large and of extraordinary splendor, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was awesome. “The head of that statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. “You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and crushed them. “Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth." (Daniel 2:31-35).

It's obvious the world is fallen and I believe the NY gay marriage law is indicative of that. Further, the passage of the law in that state means that we have pushed the rock to the pinnacle of the mountain and the next phase will be a fast downward slide that soon roars into a pell mell tumble into depravity. Revelers take note! Jesus is the rock who will crush the world's fallen governments and establish His righteous Kingdom on earth!


  1. I can imagine that in the tribulation, perversion of all things like bestiality and pedophilia will also be legal.

  2. America (Mystery Babylon-Revelation Chpt. 18) has definately become corrupt as Sodom and Gommorah. Judgment cannot be far off.

  3. Thanks for posting. NY used to be a good, decent state. No more.

  4. Definitely a sign of the end. The gov. allows this and shoot down the AZ immigation law? They're purposefully destroying the country and this immoral new law is just part of their plan.

  5. In your about me section at the bottom of the left side of the page there is a photo of a blue faced statue with wings, I think. What is that picture of if you don't mind me asking? It looks like an idol!

    Thanks for posting on this topic, as we enter into a time where speaking against homosexuality is beginning to be called "hate speech." And the pro-gay movement calls speaking against Christianity, "progress."

  6. It is a closeup of small statue of an angel I have in my garden. On the front of the angel, there is the the verse from Ecclesiastes on it that there is a time and a season for everything. I posterized it in Photoshop, cropped it and use it for an avatar sometimes. It would be an idol if I worshiped it, but I do not.

    Speaking anything from the bible these days- even its truths of hell, the cross, and rapture, is called hate speech. That's because it is. Sinners hate that kind of speech.

  7. What a time we live in... The momentum gathering down the hill can only mean one thing-- He is right at the door!

  8. Oh, okay. I looked at it again and I can see now that it does look like an angel! The picture is so small, and the blue threw me off. I thought it might be in India or something. I saw the purple figure next to it and thought it was a woman's covered head, standing in front of it. But now I see that it is just a flower.

    I was just curious. And I don't have any problem with statues in your yard. I wasn't accusing you of idolatry at all, I promise : ) I just wondered if it was a picture you may have taken while you were traveling.

    Thank you again for your bold witness.

  9. No worries, thank you for asking. The purple next to the angel who is standing with hands crossed are two leaves. I was fooling around in Photoshop with the neon and posterizing. I'm not 100% thrilled with it as a avatar but then again, how do I choose something in 50pt by 50pt square that represents *all* of who I am? It is asking a lot. Alternately, it could be stated stress over the little things too much and that avatars don't matter ;) You're welcome for the bold witnessing, I appreciate the encouragement.

  10. Hi Elizabeth,

    I have been noticing this "trend" too, I'm taking two college courses this summer, and this week both (sociology and abnormal psychology) are touching (well more like clobbering me over the head) with homosexualness and what they call paraphilia (almost sounds poetic, doesn't it?) and it is making me ill. The way the courses are set up is of course to make anyone who says these things are wrong, the evil ones with severe mental problems. My abnormal psychology course even has a name for this "disorder". It is "heterosexism"... and that would be funny if it weren't so sad. George Orwell talks about the changing of language as you have been pointing out, in his book "1984"...isn't that about the time that "the wall" (communism) came down? look up Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, she has a couple of websites and was secretary of education under Ronald Reagan. She has alot of interesting things to say about how the government is brainwashing children and adults through "education" (or "re-education" actually)

  11. I am happy because God is coming soon! this world is sick. corruption and stupidity is ruling but the rock is going to kick them all once and forever!!!!!!!
