North Carolina voters declare that their civil government will honor God’s law:
Tami Fitzgerald, the head of Vote for Marriage NC, said “…the point — the whole point — is simply that you don’t rewrite the nature of God’s design for marriage based on the demands of a group of adults.”
She is right. It is not man’s place to decide what is good and what is evil. But that’s certainly been our desire for ages. (Genesis 3:5) In this case, we’ve already been told what is wrong: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman. That is detestable.” — Leviticus 18:22.
According to Bill Clinton: “So the real effect of the law is not to keep the traditional definition of marriage, you’ve already done that. The real effect of the law will be to hurt families and drive away jobs.”
The former president doesn’t believe it’s important for civil governments to publicly announce whose laws they will obey — “the real effect.” Exodus 19 is a good place to start for the rules of public representation. It’s not a question of which, but whose: Whose rules? Whose authority will you submit to? There are only two sides, and you must choose one of them.
Praise to Billy Graham for standing up and supporting the measure, saying “the Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman.”
