Many would say that not since the infamous Black Horse Calvary scandal in New York at the beginning of the twentieth century has the state fallen to such a low.
Celebrities and Hollywood fluffers are delighted; their titillation is reflected in exclamations made by Ellen DeGeneres who said, “I’m thrilled about the news from NY. Marriage equality! Every day we get a little closer. What an amazing feeling.” Rosie O’Donnell said, “Happy gays r here again.” Neil Patrick Harris called it real progress and history making. These and more exuberant exclamations picked up from blogs and tweets filled the pages of the Seattle PI and many other publications across the nation.
DeGeneres may be correct in saying “Every day we get a little closer” even if she has no idea what we are getting closer to. With Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, D.C. and now New York onboard with gay marriage we are getting closer to bringing the nation to a state of reprobation.
The children of Belial could not be expected to understand it but the hour is late and never has there been a time in our history when the following has been truer of America. “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” (Ec 8: 11) If clamoring for gay rights and gay marriage is pushing the envelope then more laws to dignify such perversion can only be just more to push us over the top in God’s patience.
