Polling for truth

From this week’s “Wisconsin Family Connection,” Wisconsin Family Council’s radio commentary!

Recent polls claim that more and more Americans—including Wisconsinites—believe same-sex civil unions or domestic partnerships are just fine and should basically be treated like marriages.  And, of course, those promoting acceptance and normalization for their non-traditional relationships are touting these polls as being the barometer of what is right.

Let’s make this very clear: Truth is not subject to nor is Truth swayed by public opinion polls.  God’s Truth stands independent of all of man’s machinations. Public opinion may or may not reflect accurately where a group of people is on a certain issue, but that by no means makes public opinion right—or good for the public, for that matter.  The Word of God is the arbiter of right and wrong, especially on issues such as marriage.

It’s hardly surprising that the polls show that people are saying individuals in same-sex relationships should be treated just as if they are married. The media has done a fabulous job of beating that drum at every opportunity. The schools have opened their doors to groups such as GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network and others who want to promote and normalize homosexuality from kindergarten up.

    Excellent! As the Word of God is always right no matter what, I’m going to sell my daughter into marriage, cut off my wife’s hand if she intercedes in an argument I’m having, and go kill some witches. It’s all in there, so it’s okay, right?

  2. Brad says:

    Gordon: You just darkened counsel without knowledge. That means you shot your mouth off, without knowing what you’re talking about. Old Testament Law was for the nation of ancient Israel, and it didn’t include cutting off your wife’s hand for anything. You’re mixing Islam with the Bible. Now, we all know the physical act of men having sex with men. In our polite society we sanitize it by calling it gay, or alternative, but we know what it really is. Tell us Gordon, what is “good”, about that act? What is it about that act that entitles those who do it to receive special treatment and special rights? Sodomites already have the same rights the rest of us have. We ALL can marry one adult of the opposite gender. The fact that, that is not good enough for them is irrelevant. We still have the same rights. Sodomites choose to pervert Gods plan for men and women. That is called sin. I know you don’t like it, but that is also irrelevant. Yes, the Word of God is right, period. Anything else is calling God a liar. That means Sodomites, you, and all unbelievers have chosen poorly. God wants to save you, and everyone else, but He won’t force Himself on anyone, and He won’t save rebels. He gave us one way to Heaven when He didn’t even have to. Jesus Christ, His Son paid our sin debt, and offers eternal life. The only thing that stands in the way is our refusal to repent of sin and receive Jesus Christ alone, as God and Saviour. If you don’t like that, well then, you don’t like that.

    I must make a correction to my post above. The Bible does say to cut a woman’s had off, but only if she intervenes in a physical fight between her husband and another man, by attacking the other man’s private parts(Deuteronomy 25:11-12). Again, this was for ancient Israel as a nation, and not for us today. Muslims do that kind of stuff today, and worse.
