Kim Davis and the End of Legal Marriage?
A long time ago, I had the theory and it is just a theory that legal marriage in America will be ended,
and we will be stuck with informal "domestic partnerships."
I wrote "There's going to be fall-out from this in my opinion. Some states may exit the "marriage" business all together. Marriage itself is going to be devalued, where in the future, all will register as "civil partners" or something for insurance reasons."
In 2013, I wrote this article: Homosexual "Marriage" is About the Destruction of Marriage
" Now this may be an unusual theory, just thinking off the top of my head---I believe homosexual marriage is going to be a backdoor way to destroy marriage in general. This is just a theory even beyond the obvious already known sin destruction. "
The Kim Davis jail-a-thon just seemed like more religious theatre. She is another pawn in the political games with Huckabee included. Michael Peroutka is a Dominionist too. She was thrown in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals in her court clerk position. She was let out later on. Why doesn't she just quit her job? Wouldn't a Christian be spiritually uneasy working in an office that is now issuing marriage licenses for homosexuals in general even if she was personally spared having to issue one herself in the future?
Something seemed very wrong with all this. One challenge some Christians may face are jobs that influence them to "sell-out".
Back to the end of legal marriage, Mississippi wanted to stop issue marriage licenses almost right away. Now there is a big push happening where law makers are putting forth laws to end state marriage licenses all together. The Alabama Senate voted against the ending of marriage licenses too where marriage would only be an informal contract filed with probate. Oklahoma changed their issuing of marriage licenses as well. One can see here marriage as a legal entity is being chipped away at.
Now some libertarians and others always have preached that the state needs to be out of marriage. Back in the Wild West, and in history, many people married when it was never filed at a court house and those marriages were valid but this seems to some part of a greater agenda. To chip away at the legal status of marriage in society. We see already how many don't marry now. All you have to do is watch talk shows on TV like Maury and others, to know there's a large group of people not even bothering with marriage before they have babies. This just seems like a steady progression of changing marriage inherently. Take the state out, where there are no longer moral protests and now anyone can "informally" "marry". This will open the door to the polygamous too. Marriage itself becomes less of an important legal reality. It no longer serves as a building block of society and is no longer as important for family infrastructure. God will always define marriage no state, but this will serve the interests of many of the wicked.
Some may ask how does Kim Davis fit into this? Well people watched all this religious show time and it just helped the outrage grew. Of course the right wing took Kim Davis's side not realizing the Trojan horse being brought in the door of chipping away at the legal status of marriage in American society. The left of course took it's position. There is a reason they chose a woman who has been divorced three times to be the poster child of the sanctity of marriage. Someone can be divorced several times and still be born again but that is something others have pointed out to discredit her. However she is also a "Oneness Pentecostal". I haven't covered Oneness Pentecostalism much on here if at all, but that is a Pentecostal group that denies the full divinity of Jesus Christ sort of like the Jehovah Witnesses. Anyone who denies Jesus as God is not a Christian.
The rally they hold upon her release from jail, deeply bothers me. Eye of the Tiger now shown in the videos above was played before she spoke. The band, Survivor who had this as a hit in the 1980s is outraged. She comes out to hold her arms up as if she has won some prize fight, arms up in the air. Where is Christian humility in that whole spectacle? It's almost like rubbing it in the faces of the homosexuals and liberals she is battling. With their Christian flags waving, it's religious showtime.
