Homosexual Judge Strikes Down The Will Of The People In Oregon

One Homosexual Judge struck down the will of the people yesterday in Oregon declaring the ban of so-called same-sex "marriage" unconstitutional.

A majority vote of Oregon citizens 10 years ago was believed to have protected marriage from the predatory advances of the agenda to redefine marriage.

US District Judge Michael McShane issued his ruling and a homily on morality yesterday, telling people to fear not, "this is not a slippery slope" as some fear "that will have no moral boundaries."

He said, "Generations of Americans, my own included, were raised in a world in which homosexuality was believed to be a moral perversion, a mental disorder, or a mortal sin," he wrote. "I remember that one of the more popular playground games of my childhood was called 'smear the queer' and it was played with great zeal and without a moment's thought to political correctness."

The judge and the government are now giving considerable thought to political correctness, while wrapping it in a cloak of morality.

He continued with this moral instruction:

On a darker level, that same worldview led to an environment of cruelty, violence, and self-loathing. It was but 1986 when the United States Supreme Court justified, on the basis of a 'millennia of moral teaching,' the imprisonment of gay men and lesbian women who engaged in consensual sexual acts. ... Even today I am reminded of the legacy that we have bequeathed today's generation when my son looks dismissively at the sweater I bought him for Christmas and, with a roll of his eyes, says 'dad ... that is so gay.'

McShane said it does not surprise him that many would seek to protect the traditional definition of marriage. "But just as the Constitution protects the expression of these moral viewpoints, it equally protects the minority from being diminished by them," he wrote.

And he concluded with this plea:

"I believe that if we can look for a moment past gender and sexuality, we can see in these plaintiffs nothing more or less than our own families. Families who we would expect our Constitution to protect, if not exalt, in equal measure. With discernment we see not shadows lurking in closets or the stereotypes of what was once believed; rather we see families committed to the common purpose of love, devotion, and service to the greater community.

"Where will this all lead? I know that many suggest we are going down a slippery slope that will have no moral boundaries. To those who truly harbor such fears, I can only say this: Let us look less to the sky to see what might fall; rather, let us look to each other...and rise."

In his instruction to "look less at the sky"... rather "look to each other"... is he suggesting that people should disregard the Law of God and each become a law unto themselves?

Or is he merely invoking the fairy tale of Chicken Little to define those who hold to traditional biblical marriage?

Judge McShane asks, "Where will all this lead?

Nike released a statement last night saying, "We are pleased with the District Court's ruling. At Nike, we are committed to diversity and inclusion ..."

Columbia Sportswear, Adidas America, The Portland Timbers, Portland Trailblazers and the Oregon Business Association echoed Nike's sentiments.

Homosexuals immediately began getting married.

I am certain this ruling will lead to a challenge.

I'm reminded of Franklin Graham's words this past week. "This is a moral issue that has been settled by God Himself and is not subject to man made revisions or modifications. In the end, I would rather be on the wrong side of public opinion than on the wrong side of Almighty God who established the standard of living for the world He created. Marriage is a biblically moral issue, not a political or theological one."

Franklin reminded us all, "This debate is ultimately about something much more important than the question of same-sex 'marriage'."

"It's about compromise," he said, calling into question the authority of Scripture.

It is also about rebellion toward God.

Contrary to the instruction of the judge, this is a time when all should look up, redemption is near.

This cannot continue without moral consequence.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Strong. Be Bold.


  1. God also says, "I hate divorce."--Malachi 2:16. Opening up the way to no-fault divorce has been a very effective way to break down the moral fabric of society. Would anyone like to see those laws repealed? I doubt it will happen. Once we put personal satisfaction ahead of morality and loosen our grip on it, it is very hard to get it back again.

  2. So how do we remove these idiots from office?? You must give us solutions to this kind of rebellion against Constitutional law and order!!! Vote the moron out of office or recall him!!!???

  3. The judge is gay? That's just wrong. How does a homosexual get to be a judge in the first place so he can force his gay lifestyle on the rest of us?

  4. Those who suffer from this affliction [broken sexuality] do not realize they can be healed do they seek salvation and healing from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I have been privileged to know those who have been healed and rejoiced in their new found freedom, and joyfully married in normal relationships.

  5. A homosexual judge ruling on same-sex marriage?

    Funny that Gary didn't call out the Catholics on the Supreme Court who just weeks ago ruled in favor of prayer before city council meetings...

    1. Why would Gary call out Christians for supporting our right to pray in public meetings, as they impose no morality on anyone, but rather simply exercise their God given freedom and harm no one?

      Funny someone would say such a thing. Ha, ha....

    2. May God give us Judges who say, "It's about the Constitution." rather than "It's about compromise.", and know what the Constitution is really about. It's not just a paper about compromise.

    3. Compromise isn't the way. There's no compromise with Jesus. He doesn't compromise just to make somebody....well what some might think of as being happy.

  6. The scripture says this about marriage:

    Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. (Heb 13:4)

    So what's going on in that verse? What kind of marriage is being talked about as being honorable?

    OMOW, I'll clue ya.

    Yet, I guess we have to call all judges honorable...well maybe not, but if we are in their court room and have to respond to them after we are first addressed, I think we have to refer to them as "your honor", even though some are rather dishonorable judges as they do dishonor God.

    When the high judges of a land are corrupt, what can we do but keep looking to the Lord, and keep speaking up?

  7. Let's pray for the judge's son.

  8. He's not a real Judge.

    Not by any heavenly standard.

    We need real people in positions of authority.

  9. Can't we oppose this based on that he is gay and isn't moral or have judgement? Can 't we do a signature thing?

  10. In this present culture war, Christians are sometimes accused of using the government to force morality on others, but we have no law that says a man must marry one woman, if we did, then marriage between one man and one woman would be forced and if Christians were behind the making of the law, then we could rightly say they used the government for an evil purpose, taking away the right of a man to remain single.

    No one is forcing marriage as God intended on anybody.

    It's hypocrisy to say so.

    What instead is happening is that supporters of the gay agenda, are using the government to force immorality upon others.

    Think of the man who works for the state and will be forced to issue marriage licenses for the purpose of homosexual unions, something that he ought not to condone, bless, or give license to, seeing how God has given him instruction in righteousness, telling him those things that are wrong, and also a conscience to help guide him, with the help of the Holy Spirit.

    Will the man be able to say, "I can not issue you this license because I am not to be used to support, bless, or otherwise give license to evil. It's just plain wrong. I know this because I have been instructed by God. Therefore I refuse."

    Will the state support the man in this, doing so without hypocrisy, and without partiality, and how will they do it?

    And what of the baker who is asked to put two grooms on a cake? Will he be able to say, "I don't do that kind of work for anybody, regardless of race, creed, religious affiliation, or any other reason. Everyone is the same in this regard. I make no exceptions."

    Will the state support him in this, doing so without partiality, and without hypocrisy? How will it do it?

    Something very unconstitutional has been going on here.

    Jesus warned us of leaven, the leaven of hypocrisy.

    Haven't we heard "I'm not hurting anybody."

    But the leaven that is promoted works it's evil, affecting the whole in a corrupt way, and the one behind all this hypocrisy is the Devil.

    Devil, Satan, Stop riding our government in this, in Jesus' name.

    Your wicked ways are being exposed.

  11. I thank God for overturning that Judge's ruling.
