The sun still rises and sets.

The sun still rises and sets.

Some things preexist the government.  The sun, the earth, humanity; these are things that neither came from the government nor do they need the permission of the government to exist.  Human families are where we came from; all of us came from an unbroken succession of one man and one woman back to the very beginning.

The sun does not ask the government’s permission to shine.  The earth is not fruitful because the state approved.  And the physical union of one man and one woman was not ordained by the U.S. Constitution.

Our right to exist, our right to life, our very lives all preexist the government.  Our lives all came from one woman and one man.  We do not ask the government for permission to live because our lives were given by God through our mothers and fathers.  Once upon a time, we knew such things, and said:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men …

— U.S. Declaration of Independence.

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court attempted to usurp the authority of reality by declaring a dead rock to be a “family tree.”  But reality does not and will never comport itself to the words of man.  Our words should comport with reality, not the other way around.  We play God when we attempt to shape reality through our words.

God laughs.  No child will ever be born from two-men or two-women.  No one has ever been born from two-men or two-women.  None of these so-called “marriages” will ever be consummated.  None of these so-called “marriages” will ever produce a single child.  None of these so-called “marriages” will ever experience the one-flesh-union of real marriage.

True marriage is the life-long one-flesh union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.  It is based on and flows from our human design.  Men and women are designed to be together, their bodies compliment each other.

All Justice Kennedy and the U.S. Supreme Court have succeeded in doing is playing redefinition word games.  A rose is a rose by whatever name one calls it, and so is true marriage.

The government did not create the sun.  The government did not create life.  The government did not create liberty.  And the government did not create marriage.

The sun rises.  The sun sets.  The true Lord is still in control.
