Divorce also goes against moral code
What if tomorrow’s headlines read: “Supreme Court Declares Divorce Un-Constitutional?” Would you agree to this? If not, why not? The detractors of same-sex marriage want to protect the moral code established by Jesus Christ. Matthew 5:32 says, “... anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” Is allowing divorce helping build a moral society? Would you advocate making such behavior “unconstitutional” or even illegal?
All that aside, the real question is being ignored, which is, “Should the government be involved in marriage at all?” Consider this: A husband and wife go to bed one night. While they sleep, all traces of government disappear; all records, licenses, buildings, everything. When that man and woman wake up the next morning, are they still married? If so, then how is the government a necessary component in their marriage?
Louis Carabini says it best in his book “Inclined to Liberty,” “We may find the personal relationships between some people to be quite strange and possibly repulsive ... However beyond our displeasure when considering the personal affairs of others, we should ask ourselves: ‘To whom do these affairs belong — them or me?’ Once we forcibly intrude into the way others choose to live their lives, we open our doors to intrusion from those who don’t particularly approve of the way we choose to live ours ...”
Jesus Christ did not promote his morality through legislation. He educated others about how to get to Heaven and left the decision whether or not to follow him to each individual. Why, then, do we think ourselves moral when we do something God did not endorse?
