The Attack On The Family

  1. 1. The Attack on the Family HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED IN JUST 5 YEARS?
  2. 2. Gods’ Design for Marriage  Gen 2: 21-24 (NLT)  21-So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening.  22-Then the Lord God made a woman from the rob, and he brought her to the man.  23-At last! The man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”  24-This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
  3. 3. Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)  The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) (Pub. L. 104-199, Sept. 21, 1996, 110 Stat. 2419) is a federal law that denies federal recognition of same-sex marriages and authorizes states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states. DOMA was passed out of the fear that a lawsuit in Hawaii would force that state to recognize same-sex marriages. Under the U.S. Constitution's Full Faith and Credit Clause (Article IV, Section 1), states are expected to recognize the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. Therefore, Congress was alarmed at the prospect of a gay or lesbian couple being married in Hawaii and then going to another state and expecting that state to recognize them as legally married. In addition, Congress did not want to grant same-sex couples the same federal benefits that are given to heterosexual couples who are legally married.
  4. 4. The Whitehouse no longer defends DOMA  A report from CBS news February 24, 2011.  President Obama has instructed the Justice Department to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, the legal prohibition on federal recognition of same-sex marriages.  Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the department will stop defending the policy because it has now been challenged in the Second Circuit, "which has no established or binding standard for how laws concerning sexual orientation should be treated."
  5. 5. Supreme Court Decision on DOMA 2013  Los Angeles Times article June 2013  WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act on Wednesday and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.  The decision is a landmark win for the gay rights movement. It voids a section of the law known as DOMA, which was adopted with bipartisan support in Congress in 1996 to deny all benefits and recognition to same-sex couples.  At that time, no state permitted gays and lesbians to marry. Now, 12 states and the District of Columbia authorize same- sex marriages.
  6. 6. What is Don’t Ask Don’t Tell?  According to Wikipedia  "Don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) was the official United States policy on military service by gays, bisexuals, and lesbians, instituted by the Clinton Administration on February 28, 1994, when Department of Defense Directive 1304.26 issued on December 21, 1993, took effect,[1] lasting until September 20, 2011. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service. This relaxation of legal restrictions on service by gays and lesbians in the armed forces was mandated by United States federal law Pub.L. 103–160 (10 U.S.C. § 654), which was signed November 30, 1993.[2] The policy prohibited people who "demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts" from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because their presence "would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability".[3]
  7. 7. Don’t ask Don’t tell repealed 2011  Article July 22, 2011 New York Times article.  WASHINGTON — President Obama formally certified on Friday that the American military is ready for the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy as Pentagon officials said that nearly two million service members had been trained in preparation for gay men and women serving openly in their ranks.  Enactment of the repeal will come in 60 days, on Sept. 20. The two-month waiting period is called for in the legislation passed late last year that ended “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the 17-year-old law that banned openly gay men, lesbians and bisexuals from military service.  “As of Sept. 20, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. He signed the certification, along with Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about 3:30 p.m. in the Oval Office.
  8. 8. From the Whitehouse  May 9, 2012 during an interview with ABC News, President Obama said, “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”  WASHINGTON, June 26, 2015 (Reuters) - The Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, handing a historic triumph to the American gay rights movement.  The court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution's guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law mean that states cannot ban same-sex marriages. With the landmark ruling, gay marriage becomes legal in all 50 states.  Immediately after the decision, same-sex couples in many of states where gay marriage had been banned headed to county clerks' offices for marriage licenses as state officials issued statements saying they would respect the ruling.

  10. 10. The Rainbow  QUESTION: What is the meaning of a rainbow in the Bible? What do colors such as red, blue, and purple mean?  Genesis 9:12:13 (NLT)  12-Then God said, “I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come.  13-I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth.
  11. 11.

  13. 13. Homosexuality Is Unnatural  Romans 1:26-28 (NLT)  What are the potential consequences of living a homosexual lifestyle?  How does it affect a persons body? Values? Mind and emotions? Family? Career? Soul? Future? Etc.
  14. 14. Christ Provides a Way Out of Homosexuality  1 Cor. 6:9-11 (NLT)  What is the hope offered in these verses for the homosexual?  What is necessary for forgiveness and “cleansing from unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9)?
  15. 15. How can we help?  How should the work of Jesus (to wash, sanctify, and justify) affect and motivate believers to love and care about homosexuals?  What Will Help Someone Not Fall Back into a Homosexual Lifestyle?  1 Cor. 6:18-20  To win victory over homosexuality requires changing both thinking and habits. Christians can reject homosexuality yet still love and respect the homosexual as a person.
  16. 16. What is the North Carolina bathroom law according to CNN?  An article from CNN on Thursday March 24, 2016  Washington (CNN)North Carolina's governor on Wednesday signed a controversial bill blocking cities from allowing transgender individuals to use public bathrooms for the sex they identify as -- as well as restricting cities from passing nondiscrimination laws more broadly.  House Bill 2, the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, puts in place a statewide policy that bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond to their biological sex. The bill also reserves the right to pass nondiscrimination legislation to the state government, saying state laws preempt any local ordinances.
  17. 17. The Facts about the North Carolina bathroom law  The city of North Carolina issued a decree that all public and private institutions must allow transgender students (i.e. I identify as a man or a woman) to use the bathroom of the sex they identify with.  The North Carolina law states that if you want to allow this you can but you are not forced to.  So now several high profile revenue generating events (NBA, concerts, Apple, etc..) are now being cancelled due to this law.
  18. 18. Transgender bathrooms  An article in CNN on May 14, 2016-  (CNN)The Obama administration issued guidance Friday directing public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms matching their gender identity.  A joint letter from the Departments of Education and Justice went to schools Friday with guidelines to ensure that "transgender students enjoy a supportive and nondiscriminatory school environment," the Obama administration said.
  19. 19. Transgenderism in the Military  According to an article by CNN June 30, 2016  Washington (CNN)The Pentagon said Thursday it was ending the ban on transgender people being able to serve openly in the U.S. military.  The announcement -- which removes one of the last barriers to military service by any individual -- was made by Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who had been studying the issue for almost a year.  The decision comes as the military has witnessed major changes in the role of women and the inclusion of gays, lesbians and bisexual service members in recent years.
