Same Sex Parenting

Is Gay & Lesbian Adoption in the best interests of the child?

Heidi at Mommy Monsters Inc. has a great post about God’s plan for child rearing. Check it out at the link above.

I see a lot of hand wringing and hear a lot of “well that’s just the way it is” when the topic of the deterioration of our culture comes up. Often people seem genuinely baffled, especially if they are members of what I’ve begun to call the Oprah set, folks (generally women) who see the world through the filter of Oprah Winfrey rather than through the filter of God’s word.

Marriage, by the design of our Creator consist of a man and women, when we step outside of God’s design we run into trouble. Sex by God’s design is so awesome that it’s intended to be exclusively the privilege of married men and women who have made a lifetime commitment to each other, when we step outside of this design we run into trouble. Children are the natural consequence of this activity, and when they are conceived outside of God’s design they often pay a heavy price and carry the burden of another’s sin their whole lives. Yet we wring our hands and cry aloud why?

I imagine that some of Lot’s neighbors may have asked the same question.

Lord open our eyes to your ways and soften our hearts to follow you. Amen.
