The Connection Between Unbiblical Feminism and Gay Marriage

with 2 comments

In yesterday’s ruling that overturned California’s Proposition 8, the judge said, “[M]arriage in the United States traditionally has not been open to same-sex couples.”  But that’s “an artifact of a time when the genders were seen as having distinct roles in society and in marriage.”  “Today, gender is not relevant to the state in determining spouses’ obligations to each other and to their dependents.” (HT: Ed Whelan)

Well, I guess those of us who think the Bible teaches that there are role distinctions for men and women were wrong all these years. Imagine the gall, to think that the biblical teaching on masculinity and femininity and the role relationships between them had any effect on sexual issues. Crazy fools, we! All that headship and submission stuff, what a bunch of garbage. Just “an artifact.” Good thing many of our evangelical seminaries have gotten on board with the times. Paul really did have his head in the sand; and now we’ve got Judge Walker’s word on it.

Rejection of God’s truth never comes in nice, tidy packages (like the “biblical feminists” want it to); it always breaks out into something larger and more God-dishonoring than we imagine.

  1. You’re right, but to me this simply indicates what I’ve been saying for a while now: that open homosexuality is a symptom rather than a cause. Homosexual “marriage” could never have been dreamt of if traditional sexual mores in general had not first been rejected. Consequently, battling gay marriage is mostly useless unless the culture also shifts back to a biblical moral position on the other aspects of sexuality as well.

    • Agreed! And well said. The cause is unbiblical feminism and unbiblical notions, and thus, unbiblical training in masculinity and femininity. Once the church started accepting the idea that men and women were essentially the same except for their body parts, the jig was up.
