The Biblical Definition of Marriage:
'In the image of God he created him; male and female he created them ... a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife,
and they shall become one flesh.'
Constitutional Marriage Amendment -- California:
'Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.'
-California Constitution, Article 1, Section 7.5 (Effective 11/5/2008)
.JUNE 26, 2015
In a 5-4 decision, two Catholic, three Jewish SCOTUS justices overruled the Bible, Torah, Koran, an AIDS epidemic, the rights of children and 30 sovereign states recognizing only 'one man, one woman' marriages via constitutional amendments, and redefined marriage to include homosexual couples.

'Evangelical Christians at the dawn of the twenty-first century
find themselves living in a period of historic transition.
As Western culture has become increasingly post-Christian,
it has embarked upon a massive revision
of what it means to be a human being ...
Therefore in the hope of serving Christ's church
and witnessing publicly to the good purposes of God
for human sexuality revealed in Christian Scripture,
we offer the following affirmations and denials.'

Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. 'Of course you don't --- till I tell you.
I meant, 'there's a nice knock-down argument for you!'
'But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument,"'Alice objected.
'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone,
'it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'
'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, not idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy,
nor the drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers
will inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you.
But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified

-1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.
And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach,
patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness.
God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth,
and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil,
after being captured by him to do his will.

Genome Project Confirms The Bible Record:
Earth Was Populated From One Man
'The Y chromosome of all living men is related through a single male ancestor ...'
'And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth ...'
Obergefell v. Hodges, Ohio Dept. of Health
The US Supreme Court (5-4) on June 26, 2015 cited the Fourteenth Amendment as a constitutional basis to redefine marriage to graft-in 'same sex couples.'
The five affirming judges -- two Catholic (Kennedy, Sotomayer), three Jewish (Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan), overruled the consistent biblical teaching the practice of homosexuality is sin and marriage is between a man and a woman; the Supreme Court justices disregarded science, sovereign state voter and legislative rights -- the rights of innocent children -- to placate a culture of what the Bible refers to as 'reprobate minds.'
However, near the end of the Opinion, somewhat overlooked in mainstream media, it suprisingly states: '... the First Amendment ensures ... proper protection' for those who oppose same-sex marriage for religious reasons or otherwise.
In other words, the First Amendment-backed debate for 'What constitutes a genuine marriage?' is legal in the marketplace of ideas. Street and pulpit preachers, opinion writers, wedding planners, cake bakers and photographers who oppose same-sex marriage have -- at the end of the day -- ensured 'proper protection.'

Page 27 Excerpt
The Opinion of the Court
June 26, 2015
'... Finally, it must be emphasized that religions,
and those who adhere to religious doctrines,
may continue to advocate with utmost, sincere conviction
that, by divine precepts,
same-sex marriage should not be condoned.
The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations
and persons are given proper protection
as they seek to teach principles
that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths,
and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure
they have long revered.
The same is true ...
who oppose same-sex marriage for other reasons.'
Obergefell v. Hodges, Ohio Department of Health (pg 27),
Argued April 28, 2015, Decided June 26, 2015.
To what extent will the First Amendment ensure 'proper protection' to those who oppose same-sex marriage for religious ... or other reasons? To what extent does the First Amendment protect employees in the workplace?
How is same-sex marriage legislation and the conduct of LGBT affecting the work environment of hospital staff, sports institutions, first responders, military and law enforcement?
It is our opinion, that the unwitting, adopted children and babies harbored by 'same sex couples' are POW's -- pawns in the attempt to further legitimize unashamed sin in their war against God and His son Jesus ('Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!' -Psalm 2:3)
And is God -- who created and brought the woman to the man in Genesis, and subsequently destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for same sex wickedness -- well-pleased with the suppression of truth, the complacency of 70 million evangelical Christians who have the power of the GOOD NEWS in one hand -- and with the other, the vote -- to right the wrong?
(See: My Faith Votes -- 'Urge Your Senators to Oppose the deceptively-named 'Respect for Marriage Act, HR 8404.' Anything but respect, this bill introduced by Jerry Nadler (NY-D) provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages, and specifically 'repeals and replaces provisions that define, for purpose of federal law, marriage as between a man and a woman, and spouse as a person of the opposite sex with provisions that recognize any marriage that is valid under state law.' Further, 'this bill allows the Department of Justice to bring a civil action and establishes a private right of action for violations.'
So much for First Amendment 'ensured protection' cited above.
HR 8404 reportedly will formally repeal 'The Defense of Marriage Act' signed into law in 1996 by then president Bill Clinton to define and protect the institution of marriage. Enacted by the 104th U.S. Congress, DOMA defined marriage as 'the union of one man and one woman.' Note the permanance of codification.

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
For although they knew God, the did not honor him as God or give thanks to him ... claiming to be wise, they became fools ... therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done." -Romans 1:18ff

So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together [XYXX], let not man separate.'" -Matthew 19:4-6
"And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town." -Matthew 10:14-15

'Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.'
The following list includes companies, organizations and individuals who opposed California's 2008 Prop 8 marriage amendment -- yet Californians passed Proposition 8 at the ballot box November 5, 2008, 52-47%.(1)
Every major newspaper in California opposed Proposition 8 including The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, La Opinion, The Bakersfield Californian, The Press Enterprise (Riverside) and The San Diego Union-Tribune.
(Ed. Note: The San Diego Union-Tribune was purchased in 2011 by San Diego real estate developer Douglas Manchester. Manchester had experienced national media attention over an anti-Prop 8 boycott of his San Diego Seaport Village Hyatt Hotel -- Manchester had donated $125,000 to the pro-Prop 8 campaign. So LGBT and their Left supporters who demand tolerance, showed zero tolerance for Manchester who is Catholic. His investment and editorial privilege in The U-T (he renamed the newspaper), was a "check" in a political game of chess to protect the sanctity of marriage. However, in May 2015, the month before the U.S. Supreme Court voided "one man, one woman" state constitutional marriage amendments on June 26, 2015 -- Manchester sold the U-T.)

Marriage is between Man [XY] and Woman [XX]
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." -Genesis 1:1. "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male [XY] and female [XX] he created them. And God blessed them. -Genesis 1:27-28. "But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man [XY] he made into a woman [XX] and brought her to the man ... therefore a man [XY] shall leave his father [XY] and his mother [XX] and hold fast to his wife [XX], and they shall become one flesh." -Genesis 2:20ff. "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, 'You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die." -Genesis 2:16-17. "But the serpent said to the woman, 'You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.'" -Genesis 3:4-5. "So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate." -Genesis 3:6. "And the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked." -Genesis 3:7. "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God ..." -Genesis 3:8. "And to Adam he said, 'Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, "You shall not eat of it," cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life ... by the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, til you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.'" -Genesis 3:17ff.
"Now Adam [XY] knew Eve his wife [XX], and she [XX] conceived and bore Cain [XY] saying, 'I have gotten a man [XY] with the help of the Lord.'" -Genesis 4:1. "This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. -Genesis 5:1-2. "Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died." -Genesis 5:5. "The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the people of the whole earth were dispersed." -Genesis 9:18-19. "Noah ... drank of the wine and became drunk and lay uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside ... their faces were turned backward, and they did not see their father's nakedness. When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him, he said, 'Cursed be Canaan ...' -Genesis 9:21ff. "The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put [from these came the cities of Babel, Ninevah and the Philistines], and Canaan." -Genesis 10:6. "Afterward the clans of the Canaanites dispersed. And the territory of the Canaanites extended from Sidon in the direction of Gerar as far as Gaza and in the direction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim." -Genesis 10:19.
"And they called to Lot, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.' Lot went out to the men at the entrance, shut the door after him, and said, 'I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly ... as morning dawned, the angels urged Lot saying, 'Up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be swept away in the punishment of the city.'" -Genesis 19:5ff. "Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulfur and fire from the Lord out of heaven. And he overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground." -Genesis 19:24-26. "Honor your father [XY] and your mother [XX], that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.' -Exodus 20:12. 'You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.' -Leviticus 18:22. 'If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. -Leviticus 20:13. "As they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, worthless fellows, surrounded the house, beating on the door. And they said to the old man, the master of the house, 'Bring out the man who came into your house, that we may know him.' And the man, the master of the house, went out to them and said to them, 'No, my brothers, do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.'" -Judges 19:22ff. "Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love." -Proverbs 5:19. "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.' -Proverbs 18:22. "Enjoy life with the wife whom you love ..." -Ecclesiastes 8:9. "But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." -Isaiah 53:5 "But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that the has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?" -Ezekiel 18:21-23
"But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 'Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.' I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town." -Luke 10:10. 'But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.' -Matthew 5:32. 'For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for you.' -Matthew 11:23. "He answered, 'Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female [XY-XX], and said, "Therefore a man [XY] shall leave his father [XY] and his mother [XX] and hold fast to his wife [XX], and the two shall become one flesh"? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.'" -Matthew 19:4ff. "They said to him, 'Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?' He said to them, 'Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.'" -Matthew 19:7-9. "The disciples said to him, 'If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry.' But he said to them, 'Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.'" -Matthew 19:10-12. "The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery ... 'Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such a woman. So what do you say?' ... he stood up and said to them, 'Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.' Jesus stood up and said to her, 'Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?' She said, 'No one Lord.' And Jesus said, 'Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.'" -John 8:3ff.
"Jesus answered them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." -John 8:34-35. "... the devil ... he was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies." -John 8:44. "Flee from sexual immorality." -1 Corinthians 6:18. "It is good for a man not have sexual relations with a woman. But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband." -1 Corinthians 7:1ff. "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." -1 Corinthians 13: 4ff. "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her ... 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband." -Ephesians 5:25ff. "But we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, acccording to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted." -1 Timothy 1:8-11. "... if by turning the cities off Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard) ... -2 Peter 2:6ff. "By this we know we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome." -1 John 5:2-3. "And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day --- just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire." -Jude 6-7.

'Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour ... who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father.' -1 John 2:18, 22-23
'The image of the beast ... it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name ... it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.' -Revelation 13:15-18
IC NEWS, March 5, 2015: As the U.S. Supreme Court readies to hear arguments on April 28 to weigh in the constitutional right of states to determine the definition of marriage, 379 American companies urged the Court to overturn state bans on same-sex marriage in a friend-of-the-court brief expected to be filed by Friday, March 6, 2015.
The brief cited that by "allowing same sex couples to marry [it will] improve employee morale and productivity" according to The Huffington Post.

Leave politics for taxpaying voters, politicitans, lawyers and judges.
Consider boycotting one -- or all -- 379 antiChrist companies
Protect children, help end the HIV epidemic by deferring to God's will
'The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.'
We recommend canceling subscriptions to websites, newspapers or weeklies running same-sex classifieds advertising for roommates, personals, etc. Cancel with a clear and non-apologetic statement.
Pray, fast for Big Tech, mass marketing repentance. Don't buy Coca Cola or Pepsi products. Buy office supplies, books and coffee at mom-and-pop stores or Walmart. Don't swipe VISA, use Mastercard. Switch to non-political businesses not on The 379 list. America will thrive on businesses that rise to replace The 379 whose CEO's crossed the line. Don't buy 379's new products, i.e. Apple Watch. Use social media to denounce social media platforms. Change banks, airlines and stores. Change channels. Change school districts.
Vote Platform Repubican. Get elected on school boards, city councils, etc. Do what you can.
Over time, truth, prayer and pro-active non-violent resistance will make a difference. Lives are saved by laws prohibiting immoral, ungodly sexual relationships. Over 50 million American abortions since 1973 are due to sexual activity outside of biblically-sanctioned marriage.
These 379 antiChrist companies are disguised as friends of homosexuals -- as angels of light -- yet in God's world, according to the Bible, they are acting as an enemy of the soul, promoting lies leading to misery and death -- temporal and eternal.
If possible, you should not support a business or public agency that uses your money to promote biblically immoral, anti-Christ laws that will affect you and your children. A business -- and especially a public utility or tax-payer funded arm of government, i.e. school districts -- should mind their business and stay out of politics.
In terms of the workplace and public schools: they are not to be a living theater to promote personal agendas and political distractions, but to be a team environment with a focused objective: get the job or assignment done. Whether a worker or classmate is a man or woman, boy or girl, gay or straight, married or single, black or white, Christian, Jew or Muslim, the eye needs to be on the prize -- of winning and achieving and accomplishing tasks at hand. It's about getting good grades, providing for one's family and/or needs -- and to make the organization you work in a success.
'But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf,
for in its welfare you will find your welfare.' -Jeremiah 29:7
Vote 'Platform Republican' -- the war to define marriage is not lost. We lost battles, but we can win the war:
'Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, not idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.' -1 Corinthians 6:9-11
