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.
When God first created man - He created one man and one woman and then told them to be fruitful and multiply. He did not create Fred for Adam or Jill for Eve. He created Eve for Adam. God the Father never ordained or approved of any type of homosexual relationship between two men or two women.
Leviticus 20:13 (New King James Version)
13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
Deuteronomy 23:17-18 (New King James Version)
17 “There shall be no ritual harlot of the daughters of Israel, or a perverted one of the sons of Israel.
18 You shall not bring the wages of a harlot or the price of a dog to the house of the LORD your God for any vowed offering, for both of these are an abomination to the LORD your God.
1 Kings 15:11-12 (New King James Version)

1 Kings 22:42-46 (New King James Version)
42 Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.
43 And he walked in all the ways of his father Asa. He did not turn aside from them, doing what was right in the eyes of the LORD. Nevertheless the high places were not taken away, for the people offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places.
44 Also Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of Israel.
45 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, the might that he showed, and how he made war, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 46 And the rest of the perverted persons, who remained in the days of his father Asa, he banished from the land.
Hebrews 13:4 (New King James Version)
4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
Romans 1:26-27 (New King James Version)
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Weekly Bible Verses brought to you by The Bible and No Same Sex Marriage:
1 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.
2 And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”
And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.”
3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house.
5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”
