Attorneys Warn U.S. Supreme Court That Gay Marriage Could Bring God's Judgment on the Nation
Friends in Christ, please make the upcoming Supreme Court decision a matter of much prayer. We are glad for the boldness of these attorneys. The following is excerpted from “Attorneys Warn,” Christian News Net, Apr. 11, 2015: “A legal brief recently submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court warns that forcing states to recognize same-sex ‘marriage’ could bring God’s judgment upon the nation. As previously reported, in January, in light of contrasting appeals court decisions, the nine justices agreed to take up a case that would determine whether or not the U.S. Constitution provides states the right to ban same-sex nuptials. The case is set for oral argument this month with a decision in June. ‘This case before this Court is this nation’s tower of Babel. At issue is whether we as a people are going to continue to conform the institution of marriage to the one created and established by God, or instead will reform the most sacred of human institutions into something else chosen by an elite set of jurists,’ reads the amicus brief, filed by the U.S. Justice Foundation of Ramona, Calif. and the law offices of William Olsen of Vienna, Va. Several other Christian attorneys joined in the submission, including Kerry Morgan of Pentuik, Couvreur & Kobiljak P.C. in Wyandotte, Mich., James Clymer of Clymer Conrad, P.C. in Lancaster, Pa. and J. Mark Brewer of Brewer & Pritchard, P.C. in Houston, Texas. In addition to warning that requiring states to recognize same-sex arrangements would continue to have detrimental ramifications for Christian business owners, churches and society in general, the attorneys spoke of the spiritual consequences for such a decision. ‘The Holy Scriptures reveal that God created mankind, male and female, in the image of God,’ the attorneys declare, pointing to Genesis 1:27 and Matthew 19:4-6. ‘Homosexual sex and homosexual marriage are a repudiation of God’s created order.’ ‘Should the court require the states and the people to “ritualize” sodomite behavior by government issuance of a state marriage license, it could bring God’s judgment on the nation,’ they warn, pointing to Leviticus 18:22 and 24-30. ‘Holy Scripture attests that homosexual behavior and other sexual perversions violate the law of the land, and when the land is “defiled,” the people have been cast out of their homes.’”
