Focus on abortion, not gay marriage
Some people want to amend our state constitution so it will define marriage. It is not necessary; God has already done that. Marriage is to be between a man and a woman. This will work for those who choose God, but this is only a part of God’s plan. He also provides for people to not choose him.
The government, instead of defining marriage and limiting whom it will serve, has to be about providing for all of God’s plan and acknowledge and provide rights to not only those who choose God, but to those who do not choose him and who bring to the government a plea for the acceptance of a marriage that does not fit God’s description of “two people becoming one.”
It’s the old soybean-field-with-Canada-thistles scenario. The soybean is the desired crop, the thistle is not, but it comes up and thrives in the field. The farmer could spray the field and kill the thistles, and deprive them of sun, rain, soil and life. But God will have the thistle grow unmolested with the beans, which seems contrary to our way of looking at it. Who want’s a bunch of thistles in his beans? But it’s the only way it will work, short of God stepping in and running everything, and taking away our right to choose for ourselves, including to defy him. We think we should spray for the weeds, and we think we should fix marriage with an amendment. But marriage doesn’t need fixed, we cannot “fix” what God has already established. But we can acknowledge that God will give freewill its due and allow us to choose or reject him — for now. When the day of harvest comes, God will separate the beans from the Canada thistles.
