The case before the state Supreme Court involves two lesbians and a 9-year-old girl. One birthed the girl through in vitro fertilization.
But the women split up and the mother married a man and has refused custody rights to her former partner.
Kent Ostrander of the Family Foundation of Kentucky calls the legal case a sad story "that has been engendered by the cultural shift and slide into redefining marriage, redefining sexuality and therefore redefining family."
right:wish Barry knew the "definition of marriage & who has the authority to define it. For example, if a woman wanted to marry two men, the Church does not believe it has the authority to redefine marriage in order to accommodate her wish. Similarly, if a husband decided he no longer wished to be married to his wife, but instead wanted to marry another woman, the Church does not have the authority to pretend he could be validly married to anyone other than his wife. As Jesus said, ‚Äė‚ÄėEvery one who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery‚Äô‚Äô (Luke 16:18).
The Church recognizes that Jesus‚Äô teaching on marriage can be a cause of suffering for those who desire to live otherwise. But by upholding God‚Äôs original plan for marriage, the Church is not expressing hatred toward any group of people. Rather, the Church believes that although some things in the Gospel are difficult to accept, we will only find fulfillment by trusting in God‚Äôs plan for our lives.
Why people of the same sex who love each other and are willing to be faithful for life cannot get married is because there is more to marriage than love&faithfulness. necessary elements,like two legs of a four-legged chair,NOT the only ones.
What a mess, and what an administration. The rise of the sodomites was really something to behold. Fast and furious comes to mind. The modern day trojan horse, Mr OBama, appears on the scene wearing a sheep costume, spewing the polar opposite of everything he actually ended up doing, promised free cell phones to the lower incomes, and bang, he's in. Songs of praise and worship are written and sung by school children as they exalt his greatness, a Nobel peace prize is presented to him, and his wife tells a nation that she is finally proud to be living in America. Anyway, then comes the day.when his daughter Malia asks, "Dad, why can't teo people who love each other be together and get married"? Mr OBama says, "You're absolutely right, my daughter". Now, go and get the key to Pandora's box. Look at what all is going on now from a simple turn of a key...
Ostrander says that when the U.S. Supreme Court gave its official stamp of approval to same-gender marriage it basically "legitimized "such redefinitions.
"In some sense those progressives who are leading the way think we're moving forward, we're progressing," says Ostrander, "when in fact we've taken a u-turn and we're going back in history prior to giving of the Mosaic law."
Ostrander refers to Lot, and Sodom and Gomorrah, and local men wanting to ravage male guests."
