Evolutionists will be happy to know that evolution is happening among humans, especially with regard to gay marriage. President Obama has evolved to the point that he now accepts gay marriage. Was that a macro or microevolutionary change? Hm?

Moving on.

What is wrong with letting gays marry, especially if it has no impact on me and my family? Why should I be concerned about two lesbians getting married in Oregon or California? Actually, I couldn’t care less about what two married lesbians in California are doing.  What I am concerned about is the normalization of homosexuality that is sweeping our society.

A wave of “gayness” is sweeping the world, convincing people that an active homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable thing.  It is in the schools, on TV, in the movies, and in literature.  Homosexual marital relationships are well on their way to being accepted in society. It wasn't this way 20 years ago, but like President Obama, society’s views on normalized sexual relations appear to be evolving. I am not surprised that we have come this far. We know from the teachings of the prophets like the Apostle Paul that the earth will be full of wickedness in the last days. I am surprised, however, that we have come this far so quickly.

If you are wondering what I am talking about, watch this CNN video of two lesbians proposing at an NHL hockey game. I couldn’t care less about the lesbian proposal; what concerns me is the audience’s acceptance of the proposal. I am concerned about how the hockey crowd stood and cheered the couple on. For society to willingly accept and cheer homosexual marriage is mockery before God. The Creator has said that homosexual relationships are wrong, yet everywhere you turn so many people seem to be accepting and encouraging them.

Some people think that gay marriage has no impact on me and my family. They’re wrong. Societal acceptance of gay marriage affects all of us in the same way that widespread acceptance of fornication, adultery, pornography, and drug use affect everyone. Increased acceptance of sin is weakening the moral fabric of society. What is the end result of all this? I think Mosiah (29:26-27) said it best when he wrote:

"Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right; therefore this shall ye observe and make it your law—to do your business by the voice of the people. And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land."

The following excerpt from the Proclamation on the Family also gives a hint of the judgments that await nations which callously set aside God’s laws of marriage and procreation.

The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. …Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.”
