Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States tossed aside the Constitution — and the Bible — to issue a 5-4 opinion that states homosexuals have the “right” to marriage licenses.

Homosexual activists and their supporters turned social media into a bag of Skittles and broke the Internet tossing out hashtags about “love,” “justice,” and “equality.” Meanwhile, President Obama turned 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue into The Rainbow House.

And, in other news, grass is still green, the sky is still blue, and sin is still sin.

With the help of the Squishies (see also: Rob Bell, Rick Warren et al.), the Rainbow Jihadists have propagated the ultimate lie on behalf of Satan — our Enemy — that if you’re gay, it’s OK. They’ve candy-coated the Enemy’s most lethal weapon — sin — in an all-out effort to separate us from the Lord’s grace.

Knowing that many of you haven’t cracked open your Bible, they’ve lied to you, saying “Jesus never talked about homosexuality, so there’s no reason to believe it’s wrong.” The truth of the matter, however, is crystal clear, even for those who have never stepped foot into a church.

Just follow along here:

Leviticus 18:22 (from the Law of Moses) — You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 (also from the Law) — If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

Romans 1:27 — “Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

Matthew 5:17 (quoting Jesus) — “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.”

1 Corinthians 6:9 — “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.”

Romans 6:23 — For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

John 14:6 — Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

So, the Law of Moses, which Jesus has said He was sent to earth to fulfill, states clearly and repeatedly that homosexuality is an abomination, a shameful act, that is worthy of the death penalty. And while those who go on committing that sin will spend eternity outside the kingdom of God, but would rather face eternal spiritual death.

But there’s still hope. If you turn over your wicked heart to Jesus, you can still gain eternal life with Him. Being a “good person” isn’t enough. Being an unrepentant sinner won’t get you there, either.

Truth be told, though, this was never about love. It’s about hating God and those who follow in His light.

The homosexuals’ “rainbow” stands for “love,” “justice,” and “equality” about as much as the Confederate battle flag. It’s about advancing Satan’s false doctrine that sin isn’t really sin, and that those who love you enough to point it out — those who want more than anything to share eternity with you — are somehow the haters.

This won’t be the last time the Supreme Court tries to redefine evil as good and good as evil. And while it may be the highest court in the land, it is not the Highest of High. It can spew out any opinion it wants, but it does not make law — or the Law — no matter how many “rights” the justices want to convey to those who are entrenched in their sinfulness.
