Why Not Homosexual “Marriage?”

with 7 comments

Have you ever been caught around the water cooler with someone who disagrees with your opposition to same-sex “marriage” and you just didn’t know what to say?  Do you feel ambivalent about the homosexual agenda and its attempted redefinition of the family?  Are you unable to articulate a gracious response to this fundamental question: Why not homosexual “marriage?”  

The Family Policy Council of West Virginia is here to equip you!

Not long ago, ministry partner Focus on the Family created a DVD called, “Ten Persuasive Answers to the Question: Why Not Gay ‘Marriage?'”  While it was widely distributed, it is amazing how many have yet to see this production.  

Now, thanks to You Tube, its distribution is available worldwide – for free!  Over the next week, Family Voice will be running one episode per day.  Since today is the second day of the week, we bring you FOUR videos to whet your appetite.  

We are compelled to insert a warning at this point:  While YouTube is an fine tool to disperse this needed message, our opponents are actively working to corrupt the distribution of this message.  Clearly, part of their method is to cloud the “Related Videos” linked beside and at the end of each video with questionable and even obscene content.  Unfortunately, we have no control over what YouTube allows to be attached to these videos.  Thankfully, it appears that those negative images are only visible when viewed on youtube.com and are not visible when viewed below.  

The Family Policy Council of West Virginia does not endorse or condone the policies of YouTube that allow the portrayal of lifestyles destructive to the family to be so widely distributed.  Please use discretion in viewing the videos below.

Without further ado, take about 13 minutes to watch the Introduction, Preface, and Questions 1 and 2:

Introduction by Tom Minnery:

Preface:

Question #1: How will same-sex “marriage” hurt your marriage?

Question #2: Is same-sex “marriage” like interracial marriage?

 

Tomorrow, Question #3: Where does it stop?

  5. I haven’t viewed these yet, but plan to. Thanks for putting them online! One question, why did you choose Youtube, and not Godtube? The problems you are having with “related videos” would not be an issue on the latter.

  6. Thanks for posting these videos. We must be careful with the message. There is a problem with the framing of Question #2 because the opponents of interracial marriage relied on Scriptural arguments. As with opponents of interracial marriage, opponents of marriage equality can be seen as cherry picking the Bible.

    The institution of marriage described in Genesis 32-35 is very different from the institution we have today. It’s not easy, nor is it Scripturally true to claim that the institution has never been redefined. The marriage of Dinah in Genesis was not an interracial love marriage, it was an interracial diplomatic marriage which is very different. Interracial love marriage was/is a redefinition.
