The House of Representatives has failed to defend its federal marriage law, and it should be thrown out, attorneys for six gay couples and a gay widower said in recent court papers.
Because of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the gay plaintiffs have all been mistreated and denied federal benefits given to other married couples, said Mary L. Bonauto and her colleagues at the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) in briefs filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.
The DOMA defense lawyers are missing the point when they continue to talk about whether same-sex marriage is allowable or a good or bad idea, Ms. Bonauto and her colleagues said. That ‚Äúis not the issue,‚ÄĚ they said...
"Among the issues raised in these cases are whether gays and lesbians are a class of people deserving ‚Äúheightened scrutiny‚ÄĚ because of their sexual orientation"
This is not a debate about discrimination. This is a war between the powers of spiritual darkness and God. Satan and his demons are using the unsaved to parade evil, abomination and sin before the peoples of the nations, in such a form to convince the ignorant, that the Bible is an attack upon the simple inalienable human rights of the individual to do what he/she decides and chooses for him/herself.
God has responded... Lev 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an ABOMINATION: they shall surely be put to DEATH; their blood shall be upon them."
Rom 1:26 "For this cause God gave them up unto VILE AFFECTIONS: for even their women did change the NATURAL use into that which is AGAINST NATURE: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the NATURAL use of the woman, burned in their LUST one toward another; men with men working that which is INSEEMLY, and receiving in themselves that recompence of THEIR ERROR which was meet."
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world"
