|The Lord said " I will not destroy it for the sake of ten."|
(Genesis 18: 32)
Dateline: November 15, 2011
The U.S. Senate voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeal the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals i.e., bestiality.
I guess we all saw the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" coming down the road, and soon to follow, the obvious changes in the laws governing "sodomy". After all, if a government is going to acknowledge and condone homosexual behavior in the public sector, then the same must follow suit in the military. Relaxing military regulations to accommodate this military homosexual abomination, apparently comes along with the depravity that has a strangle hold on those who actually make the laws that we are all expected to live by.
It troubles me to realize that there are but 7 out of 100 Senators that see a problem with repealing Article 125 of the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice), in it's entirety. It troubles me to think that this repeal was either passed by 93 Senators who never actually read Article 125 and voted blindly to repeal it, or worse yet, Article 125 was read aloud, and understood by the entire Senate, and still it was passed by all, but the "Righteous 7".
For me, the most disheartening thing is the fact that not one Senator, not even one of the "Righteous 7", spoke out against the repeal of Article 125. To God, the silence in the Senate Chambers must have deafening. None, no, not one Senator had the fortitude to stand and speak out, against this abomination with righteous indignation, no, not one! One hundred of our nation's elected representatives, has taken it upon themselves to vote in favor taking our military to a new moral low. Yet, there are those who tell me that America is not on the road to perdition. The world is sinking into a darkness as never before seen on the face of this earth, and it is America's new found immorality that leads way. Why do I say this? I say this because, this repeal was voted on in the Senate on November 15, 2011. Today is December 6, 2011 and I've heard no public outcry. The Christians of America and the world have slipped into a state of hopeless mediocrity and apathy. This assault on all that is right, will pass and the professed righteous people will protest with a whimper and not with a roar.
The names of the "Righteous 7" are: Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY.), Senator Mike Lee (D-OR.), Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR.), Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR.), Senator Tom Hardin (D-Iowa), and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). The rest of America's Senators are either spineless or morally corrupt or both. If your state Senator's name is not among the 7, then you need to do some serious house cleaning this coming election. If it's not too late. If you pride yourself on your morals and principles, you need to know that your elected Senators, if not on this list of 7, are not on the same page you are.
I am embarrassed that Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee are not among the "Righteous 7". Obviously, taking a stand against immorality is not on either Senator's priority list. It troubles me to think that somewhere in the recesses of their minds, they do not find the acts of bestiality and same sex sodomy repulsive and repugnant. Not to mention, against the natural scheme of all creation. Then again, perhaps neither of them actually read Article 125 of the UCMJ to understand exactly what it was that they were voting to repeal. Of course, if that's the case, then I find them both despicable and if they are Christian, I find them to be derelict in their faith.
There is no doubt that homosexuality exists, and if need be, the rest of us have to tolerate it. However, to repeal regulations that condone and encourage homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle, and remove a ban on bestiality, as if they feel that that disgusting act doesn't occur in the perverted society in which we now live, makes me seriously question the judgement of those to whom we have entrusted our nation.
The Lord, when speaking with Abraham regarding the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah began with trying to find 50 inhabitants who were righteous, then 45, then 40, and Abraham was able to negotiate with God down to the number of 10 righteous. Needless to say, there weren't even ten righteous to be found, and God kept his promise, Sodom & Gomorrah were destroyed. God always keeps his promises. If we are to learn from the Biblical historical events, we must make the connection with what happened last November 15, 2011, and it's relationship with the events of Sodom & Gomorrah. That being, our Senate had the arrogance to hold a vote against God. Do you understand? The elected leaders of our nation took a vote to disobey God, and God did not win. Biblical history bears out the fact that God never loses. The ramifications of a vote to disobey God's laws of morality is like assuming man has the power to defeat God. The Lord will not withhold his wrath forever. The evidence of moral depravity in this nation is proof that the Lord no longer blesses this nation. He has turned over our future to our free will, and as a nation we shake our fists at heaven defying the One who created everything.
It should frighten every citizen, that there weren't even 10 righteous men to be found in America's Senate Chambers.
