What works on the world doesn't change what's biblical

Though judges in some states have imposed homosexual "marriage" on the people through challenges to state laws or constitutional amendments, an expert on the subject sees that strategy unfolding.
Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action and founder of BarbWire.com, tells OneNewsNow homosexual activists have used the courts effectively to legalize homosexual marriage in some jurisdictions. The goal is to silence people of faith.

"They are laying the groundwork here through an incrementalist approach to ultimately criminalize the exercise and publicly taking a position in favor of biblical sexual morality," Barber observes.

As far as activists are concerned, that can come now or later. But Barber points out that the true strategy counts on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy being an activist judge.

"They probably can reach their goal if they can get a challenge to the state amendments to the Supreme Court," he says "Then they know they can break the logjam, and we can have counterfeit same-sex marriage nationwide."

In his opinion, that strategy "pits the government directly against Christians, against the free exercise of religion and against those who embrace marriage reality,"which is one man, one woman.

Barber concludes that though the court can redefine marriage legally, it cannot redefine God's definition of marriage.
