The Day 5 People’s Opinions Changed a Nation Forever

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court announced its 5-4 decision to make same-sex marriage the law of the land. Never mind that laws are supposed to be written in Congress and voted on by men and women elected to represent the views of their constituents. Never mind that the Supreme Court justices are appointed, not elected. Never mind that this law rewrites the Constitution.

There were wild scenes of celebration outside the Supreme Court building but deep feelings of regret and sadness inside the hearts of many older Americans. The latest polls show that 61 percent of our nation support same-sex marriage—the number driven by higher margins among the young. Particularly notable is the misconception among the 20-somethings and 30-somethings that up to 35 percent of Americans are gay! The actual number is estimated at 3.8 percent.

This shows the strength of the media to skew opinion. From lesbian sex scenes on prime time television to Hollywood notables (and likeables) actively promoting their gay lifestyle, the abnormal is now made normal. If you don’t have a commitment to follow the law of God given for mankind’s good, then you are very likely to think Friday was a great day.

Morality is relative. The loud and intimidating people are steamrolling their agendas. If they cannot get their way through elected officials, then they will use whatever means possible. President Obama uses his pen to make changes that are unlawful because people are afraid to stand up against America’s first African-American president. How dare we question his decisions! We must be racists to disagree.

The media has decided that conservatives are evil, mean, unintelligent, and must be stopped. That is not going to change. However, God promises to hear our prayers if we do not become stiffnecked, but turn to Him and become doers of His Word. Keep on praying. Keep up with the issues. Fix your heart and trust in the LORD.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. Psalm 112:5-7
