Irish Voters Approve Gay "Marriage"
In a major sign of the times, by a margin of 60%, voters in the Republic of Ireland (not to be confused with Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom) backed a measure to amend its constitution to allow gay “marriage.” Ireland is a Roman Catholic country. Leo Varadkar, a Cabinet minister, said, “We’re the first country in the world to enshrine marriage equality in our constitution and do so by popular mandate. That makes us a beacon, a light to the rest of the world, of liberty and equality. So it’s a very proud day to be Irish” (“Ireland Has Voted,” CNSNews.com, May 23, 2015). Mr. Varadkar doesn’t believe the Bible. The move to legalize gay “marriage” is not light, but darkness. Marriage was created by a holy God as the first human institution, and it cannot be shaped by human whim like a nose of wax. The God who created marriage is not dead, and every man will give account to Him. The supporters of gay “marriage” frame the issue in terms of human rights and equality, but the issue is actually about the nature of marriage. This proud generation thinks it is wise enough to change 6,000 years of human tradition based on God’s Word, but the result will be confusion and the destruction of all standards of morality.“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).
