Worthy Christian News » US News » Republicans Changing Attitudes on Same-Sex Marriage


WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Although the Republican Party's official platform calls for a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as "the union of one man and one woman," the Republican National Committee commissioned a report calling for more "inclusive and welcoming" tones on divisive social issues – particularly those "involving the treatment and the rights of gays."

Deep in the nation's Bible Belt, new signs emerged this weekend of an evolution among Republican governors on gay marriage, an explosive social issue that has divided America's families and politics for years.

While the Republican Party's religious conservatives continue to fight against same-sex marriage, its governors appear to be backing off their opposition – in their rhetoric, at least. For some, the shift may be more a matter of tone than substance as the Republican Party tries to attract new voters ahead of the midterm elections. Nonetheless, it is dramatic turn for a party that has long been defined by social conservative values. — Source

      Your right Edward, in all that you have writen here…
      The world seeks the things of darkness. God has said He regreted having made man and brought the great deluge save Noah and his sons. Jesus stated in the end times it will be as it was in the day of Noah.
      We know times that ensue today, what's hapening all around us is very real.. but we have the certain hope of victory dispite governments and are encouraged to combat these evils, sound doctrin must set the tone for the Christian community at home and worldwide dispite the failure of our fellow citizens in leadership positions, our system of government is good but it was designed for honest God fearing men and not the leadership of today in either the Republican or Democrat party.
      Each man must vote his own concience in the upcoming elections regardless of the expected outcome.
      2 Timothy 3:8 "And as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth, men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith."

    "I the Lord do not change" Malachi 3:6

    Who said this is okay, GOD or man? GOD does not change ( Malachi 3:6). What values do we have left? What morals do we have left? Is there a difference in a homosexual and one that commits adultery? GOD says they "will not" enter the coming Kingdom of GOD. Apparently they don't care so they will deserve what they get and will meet their own fate. Marriage has "always" be defined as one man (male) and one woman (female). Now we want to make our own rules (the rules of man and not GOD). No, sorry this is temporary but judgment day is coming. We can't go by our own ways and abide by the laws and commandments of GOD at the same time. When they take these vows who are they taking them to? When they say I solemnly swear and take this person, who are they talking to? Who are they asking to bless the marriage (which is a union)? It's certainly not GOD. GOD does not bless it, and he never will. In his eyes it's void, no good, doesn't count. He never ordained a marriage such as that. It's not a "marriage", never was, isn't now, and never will be according to GOD that created it all in the beginning. Remember Adam and Eve?

      Better to go it alone and do it right and please the LORD, than to be approved of, accepted, and admired and displease Him.
      The party left you, okay, not the end of the world. Remember it's better to be safe than sorry. Always go with your gut.
