In a move that could foreshadow whats ahead for America, Denmarks Parliament on Thursday voted to approve a bill that makes same-sex marriage legal in Lutheran church ceremonies, essentially forcing the church to perform gay marriages.Until now, same-sex couples could only get short blessing ceremonies in the states Lutheran Church, according to the Associated Press.

You know, this really boggles the mind. It's absolutely incredible as to how men justify this lifestyle. The Lutheran Church in that country should just dissolve as an organization, having such an ungodly law hanging over their heads is down right blasphemy, and regroup as something else.
This has nothing to do with having a beautiful and memorable ceremony that glorifies God for His design of marriage. There is no desire to celebrate the sanctity of the oneness as a brother and sister coming together in dediction of their life together in Christ. This is just the plain desire to remove the stigma of sin that accompanies the rebellion that is homosexuality. If everyone will agree that the emporer's clothes look presentable, then no one will have to worry about offending the naked king. God keep us strong in the days to come as this sin unravels the designed make up of family and society that You have purposed. I don't think we have scratched the surface of understanding where the effects of this growing compromise will take us. OK, I can't help but say it, "Something is rotten in Denmark."

Indeed something is rotten in Denmark. God grant that a godly remnant arise in that country. Though I fear they will be martyred for Christ.Bearnaster.
