“It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.” Psalm 119:126.
For the second time in just two years the U.S. Supreme Court has given another decisive victory for the LGBT community. In a 2015 landmark decision, Obergefell v. Hodges, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to all same-sex couples.
Today in another ruling, Pavan v. Smith, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that birth certificates can list two “mothers” (or fathers) as the biological parents of a child.
The lawsuit was brought by a “married” lesbian female couple in Arkansas who were attempting to get both females listed on a birth certificate as the biological parents. Health officials in Arkansas refused to list the non-biological female on a newborn’s birth certificate.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in this case was based upon the ideology of “equality” while ignoring the plain facts about “biology.” The court ruled that because the women are legally “married” – both “mothers” must be listed as the “birth” parents.
But the facts still remain the same regardless of what the gay political agenda believes or what the U.S. Supreme Court rules. The facts state that it is biologically impossible for a child to have two mothers. Birth certificates exist to record facts not ideologies. Birth certificates document (1) that a child was born and (2) state who the child’s biological parents are, both mother and father.
The LGBT community is celebrating this ruling as another victory for equal protection in the fight against discrimination against same-sex marriage rights. But in their efforts to fight discrimination the LGBT community is discriminating against the rights of children to know who their biological fathers are. This ruling eliminates the child’s right to know the identity of who their real dad is.
Regardless of what we may believe, the U.S. Supreme Court has spoken and this decision is now the law of the land. These new decrees are to be followed and obeyed by all institutions in the United States. This is a dangerous precedent that will have a long-lasting and disastrous results.
“Wherever the divine precepts are rejected, sin ceases to appear sinful or righteousness desirable. Those who refuse to submit to the government of God are wholly unfitted to govern themselves. Through their pernicious teachings the spirit of insubordination is implanted in the hearts of children and youth, who are naturally impatient of control; and a lawless, licentious state of society results. While scoffing at the credulity of those who obey the requirements of God, the multitudes eagerly accept the delusions of Satan. They give the rein to lust and practice the sins which have called down judgments upon the heathen.” (Great Controversy, 584).
