Same Sex Marriage - Bible Prohibition
Verses from the Bible strongly indicate that the gay same sex marriage life style should be suppressed. Thus the foundation of our American law comes from the Bible.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
1 Kings 14:22, 24
And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.
And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
1 Kings 15:11-12
And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
1 Kings 22:42-46
Jehoshaphat was thirty and five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. . . .
And he walked in all the ways of Asa his father; he turned not aside from it, doing that which was right in the eyes of the LORD: . . .
And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
2 Kings 23:3, 7
And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.
And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile
affections: for even their woman did change the natural use
into that which is against nature.
And like wise the men, leaving the natural use
of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another: men with men
working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that
recompence of their error which was meet.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or know ye not that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not led astray. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate men, nor homosexuals,
1 Timothy 1:9-10
knowing this, that law is not laid down for a righteous one, but for lawless and undisciplined ones, for ungodly and sinful ones, for unholy and profane ones, for slayers of fathers and slayers of mothers, for murderers, for fornicators, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and if any other thing opposes sound doctrine,
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Likewise our forefathers in early Alabama
passed laws to suppress openly homosexual behavior. Our forefathers
did not consider homosexuals to be normal people, as they took the
word of God the Bible seriously.
These laws and traditions have been maintained
to even today. Shall we remove the landmarks established by our
forefathers? Is the human reasoning put forth by the liberal
newspapers wiser than the wisdom of our forefathers?

2. God lists "homosexual offenders" among those who He determines will "not inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9).
3. Historically, homosexuality has incurred God's destructive wrath upon an entire city (Gen. 19:4-5, 11-13).
