John McCain Marriage Amendment
John McCain Does Not Support Traditional Marriage Amendment
Senator John McCain is against the Federal Marriage Amendment, which
defines marriage between only a man and a woman.
The Federal Marriage Amendment would prohibits individual states from recognizing marital status and/or legal benefits from any other unions other than that of a man and woman.
50 Republican conservative senators supported this legislation, but
only a handful of liberal Republicans, like John McCain voted "NO" and
therefore voted to support the gay agenda.

This creation of a written mosaic law and the idea that it should be held sacred
and sovereign over all the commandments of other gods lead to the idea of an
inflexible law carved in stone but this was later modified by the selection of
judges who could interpret any ambiguities. There are biblical passages that
also refer to ten commandmentsThe

Weekly Bible Verses
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.
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Ferrar Fenton Translation,
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
