"Controversy" over Miss California Obscures The Real Issue

Who has noticed all the "talk" about Carrie Prejean's answer on gay marriage? Well guess what? Conversion of rights into privileges and political correctness happen to be two of the 16 signs of tyranny.

The real issue is not whether people can be allowed to live together as they always had that right. The real issue is that tyrants are attempting to yet again blind us as they continue their campaign to impose tyranny.

For the record, Perez Hilton is a shock jock. The fact that so many people act as if he is credible on anything goes to show you how sad and trivial Americans truly have become.

1. The definition of a "license" demands that we not obtain one to marry. Black’s Law Dictionary defines "license" as, "The permission by competent authority to do an act which without such permission, would be illegal." We need to ask ourselves- why should it be illegal to marry without the State’s permission? More importantly, why should we need the State’s permission to participate in something which God instituted (Gen. 2:18-24)? We should not need the State’s permission to marry nor should we grovel before state officials to seek it. What if you apply and the State says "no"? You must understand that the authority to license implies the power to prohibit. A license by definition "confers a right" to do something. The State cannot grant the right to marry. It is a God-given right.
