A Call for Action 1.
In Genesis 3, when God tells Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the issue was whether Adam and Eve would abide by God's commands.
Adam and Eve decided for themselves what was right when they disobeyed God and ate of the fruit. Ever since that day, mankind has tried to decide for ourselves what is good or bad, in dangerous disregard of God's command.
Is it possible to be a gay Christian? Here is a link that explains: Top of page Sanctity of Marriage The argument against same-sex marriage is by no means limited to Christian dogma. In fact, marriage as an institution between a man and a woman is an ancient concept from across religious and non-religious philosophy including Greek and Roman thought.
The distinct bond that constitutes traditional marriage was not invented by the state, and the state has no right to change it. Proponents of same-sex marriage have mis-characterized marriage. Marriage is not about companionship or its utilitarian benefits, not about taste or preference, or even about love.

Although anthropologists worldwide refer to Tylor's definition of culture, in the 20th century "culture" emerged as the central and unifying concept of American anthropology, where it most commonly refers to the universal human capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically.
Many in the culture have mistakenly concluded that marriage is merely an institution for the convenience of adults. The problem with this common misunderstanding of marriage today is the mistaken idea that marriage is about the rights and happiness of adults, that two adults have a right to happiness for as long as they want.
In actuality, marriage is not adult-centric, but is the bedrock institution for culture to sustain itself through having and nurturing children. Marriage is not about love.
In many countries around the world, marriages are arranged. Marriage is about the rights of children and thus is about supporting the next generation. Anything that weakens the institution of marriage is an injustice to children and a travesty to the culture. Anal intercourse does not produce children.
Further, there are complementary aspects of a man and woman that are important to the institution of marriage which go beyond the obvious physical attributes. There are things that a man needs that can only be provided by a woman, and vice versa.
Many heterosexuals, as well as homosexuals, misunderstand that the fundamental and intrinsic meaning of marriage is the raising of children and what is best for them. That is why laws have historically discouraged adultery and divorce.
Statistics are clear that children raised outside of a traditional strong family unit are much more likely to suffer social ills. See Getting the Marriage Conversation Right. These complementary aspects are important to the relationship of the couple itself, as well as to the children.
One does not have to appeal to religion to instinctively understand this. Yet statistics verify the structure of the traditional family as the approach to raising children that gives the best measurable results. The overwhelming body of social science research agrees that children do best when raised in homes with married, opposite-sex parents.
Every child has the right to both a mom and a dad. The most comprehensive study to date of the psychological and social status of adults with homosexual parents is that of Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas Study.
Based on a random sample of about 15, this study reported results consistent with common sense, that those raised in a traditional man-woman intact marriage did best. Those with a homosexual parent s were the: The Witherspoon Institute's Report on Marriage explains why: There are crucial sex differences in parenting.
Mothers are more sensitive to the cries, words, and gestures of infants, toddlers, and adolescents, and partly as a consequence, they are better at providing physical and emotional nurture to their children.
The two sexes are complementary, not undifferentiated. Political entities have overwhelmingly agreed. The notion of homosexual marriage was thus absurd; it violated the very purpose of marriage. Some societies had provisions for temporary same-sex relationships, usually between an adult and an adolescent male, but nothing that allowed for permancy or gave the status of marriage.
The moment this happens, law becomes arbitrary, the whim of the ruling power:Maybe, in such a world, the meaning of “culture” would be more obvious; we wouldn’t have to look it up. Joshua Rothman is The New Yorker. Companies are continually finding out that the customer is the most important part of their business.
This lesson will dive into the definition and overview of a customer service culture. The definition most often cited in the US is a succinct sentence hammered out by participants at the Aspen Media Literacy Leadership Institute: Media Literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a variety of forms.
