This isn't marriage

July 9, 2014 

BND letter writer Anne Harter complains that the Gay Pride event in Belleville and the marriage of four gay couples didn't get the attention that she thought they deserved. I know they are desperately seeking equality in marriage, even though they don't meet the criteria for marriage as decreed by the Lord.

Marriage is between one man and one woman. Sorry, same-sex does not qualify, yet she wants us to acknowledge their actions of disobedience to the Lord.

Listen up: "All flesh is as grass -- the grass withers, the flowers fade; but the word of God shall stand orever."

Harter writes that it's high time to enter the 21st century with pride. The Bible states: "Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord." Take heed.
