Wordviews Matter on Gender (May 20, 2015)

During the oral arguments on same-sex “marriage,” Justice Ginsburg articulated the worldview behind same-sex “marriage” that is fueling the current push for transgendered bathrooms and locker rooms.

Justice Ginsburg said,
“[Proponents of same-sex “marriage”] wouldn’t be asking for this relief if the law of marriage was what it was a millennium ago. There was a change in the institution of marriage to make it egalitarian when it wasn’t egalitarian. And same-sex unions wouldn’t—wouldn’t fit into what marriage was once.”

In other words, to her, changes in equality regarding the roles of men and women in marriage reveal an evolution in our understanding of the sexes that now justifies treating the sexes themselves as interchangeable. But if interchangeable in marriage, then why not in the locker room as well? It’s a real-life lesson in the fact that worldviews matter.

Judge Washes Away More Than Marriage (March 26, 2014)

The federal judge in Nashville who ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in Tennessee said there was a rising tide in favor of such marriages, but that tide is going to wash away more than marriage.

If Tennessee is constitutionally required to accept any marriage so long as it is valid in another state, then part of our state’s sovereignty will be “washed away.” Tennesseans will no longer control what marriage means in our state.

But worse yet are the results of a study by Oxford professor J.D. Unwin of 80 primitive tribes and six known civilizations over a 5,000-year period. His uncontroverted research showed that when societies embrace sexual license, they have always fallen and never recovered.

The rising tide for same-sex marriage is washing away state sovereignty and perhaps the very way of life we have enjoyed.

Gay Marriage Comes to Tennessee (March 18, 2014)

Last Friday federal Judge Aleta Trauger ruled that Tennessee had to recognize the marriages of three same-sex couples who married in another state and moved here.  In doing so the judge clearly signaled her intent to continue the war by unelected federal judges on the rights of states and the citizens of that state to set its own policies regarding marriage.

In stating her intent to require Tennessee to recognize same sex marriages performed out of state, Judge Trauger only got one thing right – that her ruling will thwart “democratically enacted laws” that were “overwhelmingly” approved by 80% of Tennessee voters.

If Judge Trauger continues on her present course and strikes down Tennessee’s marriage law, the cultural landscape in our state will change dramatically, affecting Christian business owners and what we teach in our public schools.
