Last week, the Supreme Court decided that it would take up the issue of homosexual marriage this year after passing on the issue last year. What the Supreme Court decides within a few months will have consequences for the entire nation for years to come. Currently, 36 states allow homosexual marriage; 19 states have laws banning homosexual marriage. Unfortunately, the legal acceptance of homosexual marriage has been promoted by President Obama and his administration. In his six years as president, Barack Obama has overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, overturned the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy (allowing openly homosexual individuals to come out in the military and to enlist in the military), and expanded government benefits for homosexuals working for the government among other things.

In his State of the Union address this past week, Obama became the first president to use the words, "lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender" in a State of the Union address. He also said in an interview on Thursday that he 'hoped' the Supreme Court would issue a ruling that would prevent states from banning homosexual marriage.

The worst that the Supreme Court can do is hand down a universal Roe v. Wade-style ruling that would pave the way for homosexual marriage in all 50 states. This, of course, is an outcome that we, as Bible-believing Christians, do not want -- for the good of the nation, for the good of our churches, our communities, and our families.
