1. Gay Marriage Act in Great Britain Passed by House of Lords (UPDATED)

“Lords give overwhelming backing to gay marriage” – House of Lords pass gay marriage bill. (Telegraph UK)

“After two days of intense debate, peers supported gay marriage by a margin of more than two to one. There will now be a series of other votes but the clear signal from the proceedings was that the legislation will now pass into law. The proposals have already split the Conservative Party, as half of its MPs opposed the legislation in the Commons last month. In a bid to appease religious leaders critical of the Bill, Baroness Stowell, the deputy Tory chief whip in the House of Lords, said that ministers will now consider changes to the legislation to offer churches further protection if they refuse to conduct same-sex marriage ceremonies.” – Peter Dominiczak, Robert Winnett and John Bingham; Telegraph UK

“Gay marriage would ‘force Queen to break sovereign promise'” – Passage of gay marriage act in Great Britain would force the Queen to break sovereign promise to uphold God’s law says former senior bishop. (The Telegraph UK)

“Bishop Nazir-Ali told the Daily Mail: “The idea of a constitutional monarchy comes from the Bible. Christians are told in the Bible to obey their rulers, unless the ruler tells us to do something God forbids. “Happily in this country we have a monarchy that has taken an oath of upholding God’s laws, and the present Queen has for years been faithful to that. We are praying that she continues to be faithful. But while she is faithful to the vows she has taken, in this country she has to act on the advice of her ministers.” – Alice Philipson, The Telegraph.

3. “Desecration and Titillation” – Tim Challies on the dangers of pornography and how it destroys the image of God in man and God’s intention for the church. (TimChallies.com)

“When you look at pornography you are participating in this mocking of the gospel. You are watching the violation of the gospel, you are enjoying the violation of the gospel, you are being aroused by it. God says, “I have given you this great picture of Christ and the church” and you watch that portrait be defaced and violated and mocked, and you enjoy it all the while. God says, “The purity of the sexual relationship points you to the purity of the love the Savior has for you.” And you say, “Right now I need a different kind of salvation from a different savior. A more satisfying kind, and one Christ did not supply at the cross. I need salvation only this god can provide.”” – Tim Challies, “Desecration and Titillation”

  1. Making this an issue of what the Queen would have to do is foolish as the Queen is nothing but a high dollar figure head with no authority at all. The real issue is the legislators who pass such a law and the nation as a whole.
