Gay marriage battles brewing in at least 6 states this year
Gay marriage supporters enjoyed landmark victories in 2012 and are hoping for an even bigger win at the U.S. Supreme Court this year, but in the meantime political battles are brewing in at least six states where marriage redefinition bills likely will be considered.
Significantly, all six have governors who appear supportive of gay marriage. Also, the November elections saw gay marriage supporters increase their strength in the state legislatures.
Leading the way are Illinois and Rhode Island, where gay marriage bills are being pushed and potentially could pass within weeks. Other states that likely will consider gay marriage bills in 2013 are Delaware, Hawaii, New Jersey and Minnesota. Of the six states, all but one -- Minnesota -- have legalized same-sex civil unions, which grant all the legal benefits of marriage, minus the name....
Mark 10 2 And some Pharisees came up to Him, testing Him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife. 3 And He answered and said to them, "What did Moses command you?" 4 And they said, "Moses permitted a man TO WRITE A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE AND SEND her AWAY." 5 But Jesus said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 "But from the beginning of creation, God MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE. 7 "FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, 8 AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB

Not free at the link that you posted, but found a free download of it. So will read it and report back.
Saw a chapter entitled "sex is covenant", which is where I would have a fundemental disagreement with the lady!

Thats queer wrote: Interesting view, albeit unbiblical. So, if someone committed beastiality, they are married to an animal? Or if someone committed paedophilia, they are married to a child? The mind boggles at such logic. And if sex necessarily equates to marriage, then what is adultery given that men in the OT could have multiple wives? One could go on... But I guess the reason for your post was to get people to buy a book. Yes?
I sound like a broken record but I just can't believe it and never thought I'd see the day when the gay lifestyle would be accepted, much less marriage be legalized. Boy, oh boy! We are in big, big trouble.
