Should Government Get Out of The Marriage Business 1

Back when the government was functioning to protect our property and to define who belonged to whom, I was supportive of government’s record keeping. Now that the US Supreme Court is trying to turn marriage into something unknown and murky, the only point left is to use this as a registry to dole out benefits to anyone who claims to be in a relationship.

Anyone who is on Facebook knows that there is a relationship status that can change as frequently as one wants to find other close friends. I saw a post that said, after changing your relationship status more than three times, it needs to default to “It’s Complicated”.

I was doing research on the Social Security Administration’s website and found this:

Important Information for Same-Sex Couples

Alert - TransparentOn June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court issued a decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, holding that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry in all states. As a result, more same-sex couples will be recognized as married for purposes of determining entitlement to Social Security benefits or eligibility for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments.

We are working with the Department of Justice to analyze the decision and provide instructions for processing claims. We will update this website as new information becomes available.

If you are a spouse, divorced spouse, or surviving spouse of a same-sex marriage or non-marital legal same-sex relationship, we encourage you to apply right away for benefits. If you disagree with our decision about your entitlement to benefits, eligibility for benefits, or payment amount, you should appeal.

So there you have it. The purpose of changing the definition of marriage was intended to drain the Social Security fund more quickly. When we allow people who are not actually married to receive marital benefits, the end result is that people will “get married” based upon what kind of monetary bonus is available.

It works the other way as well. When people discover they can extract more money from being in a divorced status, they divorce.

This is fraud. Yet, you can’t blame the people for being smart. The blame lies squarely at the feet of the Congress who are charged with the duty of controlling their own created bureaucracies.

How could anyone ever think fornication is promotable or merits financial reward? If the Supreme Court jurists, who are supposed to be legally brilliant, are that blind, what can we expect out of our normal citizens?

This photo was taken at my wedding nearly 35 years ago.  I selected this picture because it reflects the sacredness of the wedding vows.  Our guest on Home Front this week shares some insights on how some pastors are no longer requiring a State issued marriage license in order to perform a wedding. Sadly, this little church in Wellesley, Massachusetts has since been replaced with a residential development, but nearly 35 years later, I still feel the ground was consecrated by our promises made before God and all these other witnesses.

WHAT YOU CAN DO…

1.) Marriage used to be called, “Holy Matrimony”. Try to use that for your vocabulary choice. It will help others frame it correctly. There is nothing holy about the abomination of two people pretending to be in a real marriage.

2.) We need a laptop computer for some of the presentations I am making around the state. We send a big thank you to all the kind and conscientious people who have donated to make it possible for us to produce our newsletter and podcast. However, if you have a laptop you are no longer using and want to donate it to the cause, that would be great. If you don’t have a laptop, please consider a donation so that we can buy one. Because we do not have any other funding stream, your donation will be extremely helpful in our efforts to communicate. Many people do not realize we are a volunteer entity and rely on their help and God’s leading to continue. If you would like to help, please mail a check to:
