"Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901,
to provide that no marriage license shall be issued in Alabama to

marriage of parties of the same sex that occurred as a result of the law
of any other jurisdiction."
It is recommended that all conservatives vote yes on the constitutional marriage amendment in Alabama, to be voted on the voters on June 6. This marriage amendment will write in to the Alabama Constitutional a prohibition banning same sex marriage.
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.

In Genesis Chapters 18 and 19, we witness the account of Sodom and Gomorrah's destruction due to their sexual
perversion. In this account, Lot, the nephew of Abraham, is living in Sodom. Two angels travel to Sodom and
after being invited into Lot's house for the night, the house is surrounded by "all the men from every part of the
city of Sodom-both young and old… ""They called to Lot, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out
to us so that we can have sex with them.'"

God never singled out and destroyed any other cities in this manner. The sin of homosexuality was so offensive
to God that He annihilated both cities and everyone in them.
The Book of Leviticus is where God laid down His laws to the Israelites. Homosexuality is addressed in both
Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13.
"You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable
act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them."
Here God is clearly telling the Israelites that homosexuals are so detestable and an abomination to Him that they
should be put to death and that their guilt is on their own shoulders.
I'd like to make two points here:
1. The term "bloodguiltness" or in the NIV Bible "their blood will be on their own heads" indicates that a person
decides to indulge in these deeds. Many homosexual activists would have us believe that homosexuality is a genetic
trait and not a conscious choice. We'll talk more about this aspect of homosexuality later in this article.
2. God tells us that He is unchanging. He is the same, "I the LORD do not change".3 A question we must ask is,
"If God finds something to be detestable and an abomination in past times, would an unchanging God find them to be
good and normal today?" Of course He wouldn't. He's unchanging!
