«No. 12-144 ================================================================ In The Supreme Court of the United States -DENNIS HOLLINGSWORTH, et ...»
No form of government will ever survive if it rejects and casts away as rubbish the standards of God. On no issue is this more apparent than the issue of same-sex marriage. Many laws in this nation are based on Bible standards. This Court should not hold that the government is prohibited from setting a proper moral standard in the matter of marriage, any more than it should so hold regarding murder. The fact that polls reflect over half the nation favors same-sex marriage changes nothing. Indeed it underscores the need to legislate against such devastating immoral behavior. The Court would eagerly uphold a law that protected the majority from a propensity to abuse mind-altering drugs, in spite of their preference to use such drugs, clearly seeing that such is in favor of the health, safety and welfare of the people. The damage done to the minds, bodies and social welfare of this nation by drugs is nothing compared to the damage samesex marriage will do to this nation and its people.

On March 30, 1863, facing the awful destruction of the Civil War on the country, President Abraham Lincoln signed (Continued on following page) Nineveh. “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that Proclamation 97 – Appointing a Day of National Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer.
Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. * * * It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
.... We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God....
.... [I] do hereby request all the people to abstain on [the 30th day of April, 1863] from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite at their several places of public worship and their respective homes in keeping the day holy to the Lord and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
.... [Let] us then rest humbly in the hope... that the united cry of the nation will be heard on high and answered with blessings no less than the pardon of our national sins and the restoration of our now divided and suffering country....

he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”35 Same-sex marriage will destroy this nation. If the leaders of this country treat what God has called abominable as something to be respected, revered, and blessed with the seal of approval of the government, that will cross a final line with God. The harm that will befall this nation, when the condign destructive wrath of God pours out on a nation that purposefully, in a calculating manner, institutionalizes marriage licenses for same-sex unions, is the ultimate harm to the health, welfare and safety of the people. The government is duty bound – in this Christian nation – to institute the standard of God on marriage, and pass and uphold laws that forbid same-sex marriage.
“Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God.”36 What interest could be more compelling for the government than to seek the blessings of God on this nation, by obeying His commandments and following His standards?
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
