This evening I was reading a news article in the February 1st online edition of the New York Times which discusses how certain American "mighty ones" have likewise fallen, but in a very different sense; that is, in a spiritual sense.
Entitled "Bush's Daughter, in a Break, Endorses Gay Marriage", the article concerns how New York resident Barbara Bush -- one of the twin daughters of former U.S. President George W. Bush -- appeared in a video recently made by the Human Rights Campaign, in which, contrary to the position adopted by her father during his presidency, she openly voices her support for allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry. The article also mentions how Barbara Bush is following a trend which had previously been set by members of the powerful McCain and Cheney families. The article likewise states that even some of the wives of some of these powerful American figures support gay and lesbian "marriage" to one degree or another.
With members of the Bush family, the McCain family, the Cheney family, and other American political families and celebrities leading the way by supporting gay and lesbian "marriage", is it really any wonder then that the nation is in rebellion against God, and is becoming rotten and perverted to the core? As Jesus stated in the Gospels, this is truly an example of the spiritually blind [ US leaders] leading the blind; and as Jesus said, when the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the ditch!
While these American leaders and their families, and many other American citizens, believe that they are becoming legally enlightened by condoning and supporting gay and lesbian "marriage", they are in fact doing the exact opposite. That is, they are walking in spiritual darkness. As the Lord once said through the Prophet Isaiah:
I don't know about you, but I can imagine a day when God-fearing, Bible-believing Christians may beg the Lord to take us out of this corrupt, sinful world, because it is growing more sick and perverted by the year!
