Update on the Battle to Preserve Marriage

United Families International gives a good summary of the marriage battles being fought in New England, Washington D.C., New York, and California. Go here for more details.

For an update specifically on Prop 8, see this recent article from theatlantic.com As you probably heard, the California Supreme Court upheld Prop 8 back in May. But now, an appeal to the federal courts has been filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights. The fight continues. . .

    MIND Over glands

    The defenders of homosexuality continue the oxymoron
    contradiction of attempting to use the mind to justify the
    rule of carnal glands.

    Thinking Americans still don’t give ‘a tinkers-sham’ what
    homosexuals do with their body-parts. An individual or
    a society which is by law and tradition committed to the
    natural human hierarchy of mind over body will not, how-
    ever, ever sanction glandular rule over the human mind.

    Undisciplined human desire can induce distorted perception.
    The disturbed personality or inverted character can be
    considered to be cognitively confused. This description is
    confirmed by the work of English psychoanalyst Money-
    Kyrle, who indicates that it is more accurate to recognize
    such a condition as the result of distorted perception.

    Neurosis, psychosis, stunting of growth, etc., are all, from
    this perspective, cognitive diseases contaminating not only
    perception but thinking, learning, remembering, valuing, and
    decision- and choice-making.

    Money-Kyrle affirms that scientific truth is not attained by a
    trendy self-serving fashion, confession of inadequacy,
    abdication, or collective majority-vote. There is no excuse for
    professional ignorance willfully maintained.

    By definition, a standard that is flexible is not a standard at all.
    The human mind requires a standard of comparison that is
    invariable. A criterion must be greater than the value measured
    in order to supply value-meaning in a predictable direction of
    survival and progression. The mind thus equipped is enabled
    to maintain a natural dominion over the body and its appetites.
    The very survival of the body itself, therefore, depends upon this
    maintained intellectual authority. Romans 8:6

    Our posterity cannot respect what it does not perceive, and it
    cannot perceive that which has been abandoned or inverted to
    an appetite of physical expediency by the equivocal person.

    With confidence in the laws of human nature, we can know that
    in the clash between carnality and intellect, the ‘man of the mind’
    will always prevail.

    That is nature and GOD’s way and intent all along.
