Before all the equal-sign folks get their panties and other leather encumbrances in a squish, perhaps they should pay attention.
It ain't over yet. But close. They've almost won.
Homosexuality is still a perversion on nature, goes against God's will, leads to other moral decay, causes more disease than even the sin of simple adultery alone. BUT it is not going to be a part of any holy matrimony in Michigan anytime soon. According to recent polling, Michigan's appropriate Marriage Protection Covenant is still strong:
Among the 600 likely voters polled statewide July 23-24, 51 percent opposed having same-sex marriage brought up for a vote, while 42 percent supported such a move, with 7 percent undecided . The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, with 10 percent of those surveyed reached on cell phones.Dashing the hopes of those who wish to subvert the constitution and crush tradition.
Yes, the constitution.
Recall the particular part of which, so celebrated by the left, that it has been used by them to defile the visage of Christ, promote profanity in media, and generally secure the blessings of that other supernatural cat not so popular with today's truly righteous bunch. Indeed the toleration of abuse the 1st amendment has endured, is only by the right, and those who truly understand what freedoms truly are; that which comes from God alone.
Perhaps that is why they seek to separate us from our Father Who Art In heaven? In many ways, it has already started. For our tolerance of their right to corrosive speech, and behavior masked with freedom of speech, we are rewarded with chains:
Coming soon to an American court room near you.At some point shall we stop and ask those who 'demand' tolerance, for a road-map of what it is that they "want"?
How much will be enough? Your church is not enough. You cannot practice your faith without question any longer no matter how much you have been promised the ability to do so. Your traditions are not yours. The children are next, and there really is no end to what has been a quickening realignment of what is normal. the ..
Wait what? The children are OK?
Go below then.

At least ONE state official recognizes the danger of an activist high court.
In the decision striking down Certain DOMA sections, the court implied much but fell short of 'legalizing' same sex couplings as 'marriage' nationwide. They cannot, and even as twisted as the court has become, the 'Overton Window' of sorts is not yet aligned with the court bringing outright infringements upon the states. (though Roberts came close with O-Care) However, the court DID refuse to hear the case regarding prop 8 in California, a move that signals to activists nationwide that same-sex bans need only make it to the nearest capitulating federal judge.
That judge can then override the will of the people in a state, and force a perverse application of reality on that state's citizens. And the high court will look the other way.
Attorney General Bill Schuette sees the writing on the wall and has responded:
As you may know, the Michigan Constitution defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman (Article 1, Section 25). This was placed in the constitution after being passed by the voters with 58% of the vote. And this language still stands in Michigan, unaltered by the United States Supreme Court's rulings yesterday.And we need more like you Mr AG.
And as an aside? The Supreme Court Of The United States can take their "standing" rule and shove it where the appendix begins.
We ALL have standing when the laziness of case law is the norm.

Rep Tim Walberg (R-7) released the following statement after the Supreme Court's decisions on marriage:
Marriage IS between a man and a woman.
Because the Queers (Their label not mine) want to play house, adopt children to indoctrinate into their LIFESTYLE and get the benefits normal couples receive, this has been pushed. As for those benefits, our tax dollars being used to encourage a perverse and dangerous lifestyle is troubling. It violates our freedom of conscience. With the ruling, comes a claim to federal benefits for same sex couples recognized as being legally 'married'.
"The decisions just came down and they don't apply to Michigan. So the way I view it is, I'm going to follow what Michigan law is, and I'll keep track of what's going on in the federal courts," Snyder said... until there is some money provided to make up for benefits of same sex (married) partners.
Ya know what? I feel so safe knowing our governor is out there protecting the sovereignty of our state.. Right.

OK, that settles that.
Today in California, the Republican National Committee passed the resolution proposed to the Resolutions Committee by Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema that re-supported the party platform and defined marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema issued the following statement in response:
Thank you Mr Agema. Thank you for re-affirming the strength of character that the Republican party is supposed to represent. Thank you for the light you have shed on the dark forces within our own party. Thank you for the courage to take fire from those who stand in opposition to strong families, and healthy citizenry. Thank you for persisting, and prevailing in your well considered arguments.
You have done us proud.
And our nation is far better off for it.

Nick De Leeuw, the proprietor of this site is getting hitched.
Yup.. It looks like my good friend Nick De Leeuw has decided to tie the knot. Apparently he has run down to the local sundries store bought the little engagement test kit, and it turned blue, meaning he is engaged to his best gal Sarah Cook..
The little test meters work nearly similarly to the pregnancy tests, but measures a hormone the body produces usually associated with fear, or panic. The Hormone develops a thick blue bar at the end of the strip indicating that the chains are firmly being applied.
Man what they won't come up with next..
Congratulations NICK and SARAH!!

Yup, that's right. If you were fired up about the gay marriage issue, you should be mad as heck at this. The new healthcare "reform" is bad for a lot of reasons, but this attack on marriage should concern us all.
What happens when young adults have to choose between marriage or healthcare insurance? That is the choice coming soon to a couple near you.
In the first few pages the law indicates that adults, up to age 26, can remain on their parents' healthcare insurance policy. The catch is that the individual must remained unmarried to recieve the benefit.
According to the State of Michigan, 42% of men and 58% of women get married between the ages of 20 and 24. But what happens to that rate if the couple involved wants to stay on their parents' healthcare insurance until age 26?
Will they be more likely to live together first? Only time will tell, but the new law gives young people an incentive to remain unmarried and live together instead. If that happens, those same couples are more likely to either not marry or get divorced if they do marry, at least according to a study quoted in the New York Times.
Help us fight back against the healthcare "reform". Go to www.michiganhcf.com and request a petition to circulate. We need you to stand shoulder to shoulder with us as we fight back. Join us!
