Rev. Franklin Graham had a short, yet dire, response to the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling on Friday: God has less of a reason to “spare” America.
The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled today that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states.
With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it.
Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman—Almighty God—and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any manmade court. God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).
I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.
