Of God's Law And Democracy—Homosexual Rioting In California

By Bill Wilson

The people of California passed a state constitutional ban on same sex marriage by a 52 to 48 percent margin. Already the homosexual lobby, namely the ACLU and several others, have filed lawsuits saying that the Constitutional amendment is unconstitutional because California's equal protection clause protects anybody wanting to marry anybody, or probably anything. Funny how democracy is a great thing except when it works against the people who want to jam something down somebody else's throat. Now the homosexuals are rioting in California because they didn't get their way. But that's how true democracy works-might makes right.

Unfortunately for California homosexuals, America, and yes California is included in that, is a Constitutional Republic. There is a difference. The out and out majority of qualified voters decide how people are to be governed according to the rule of law. Democracies, on the other hand, often do not follow the rule of the law because the rule of law is always changing according to who has the might to make it. In 2000, some 61% of California voters approved a referendum saying that marriage between a man and a woman could only be recognized as valid in California. Then the California legislature passed a law to allow homosexual marriage, and the state Supreme Court ruled that it was legal.

Here the courts and the legislature went against the wishes of the people because the homosexual and anti-family lobbies were able to muster enough "democratic" might to overturn a massive majority's vote. Now the people of California once again passed a ballot measure to outlaw same sex marriage-this time by amending the Constitution. In other words, the law of the land will ban homosexual marriage. And once again the homosexual lobby is trying to use the court system to go against the majority. In this case, it will remain to be seen if California is a Constitutional Republic and adheres to the law as made by the majority or folds under democratic principles of might making right.

But there is one other angle that neither the homosexuals nor the California courts are considering: That there is a supreme law, God's law. Leviticus 18:22 says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." And Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-6, "Have you not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife: and the two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder." Man may try to change the laws to suit his own perversions, but God's law will always remain the same.
