Marriage Vote in Maine
by Dave Miller, Ph.D.

Printer version | Email this article

While the overall culture war being waged in America often seems bleak for the forces of righteousness, an encouraging moment occurred when the people of Maine rejected a law that had been passed by their legislature last spring which sought to legalize same-sex marriage (Glenn and Crary, 2009). To date, when Americans have been given the opportunity to define marriage via popular vote, they have overwhelmingly reaffirmed the biblical, traditionally American definition of one man and one woman. The citizens of 31 states have now done so. Those five states that have legalized homosexual marriage (i.e., Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Iowa) did so through legislation or court rulings—not by a vote of the people.

Nevertheless, this monumental spiritual battle rages on as pro-homosexual forces have vowed to continue their hedonistic assault on morality and marriage. While the average American may not personally participate in the rising tide of sexual insanity, the incessant “diversity” propaganda that blankets American culture has blinded many to the inevitable outcome: America will gradually become like the pagan civilizations of world history wherein decent, moral citizens were terrorized, threatened, and bullied by the baser elements of society (cf. Sodom and Gomorrah—Genesis 19). As the Supreme Court of South Carolina articulated in 1848:

What constitutes the standard of good morals? Is it not Christianity? There certainly is none other.... The day of moral virtue in which we live would, in an instant, if that standard were abolished, lapse into the dark and murky night of pagan immorality (City Council of Charleston..., emp. added).
