The race to legalize same-sex marriage in the nation’s state and federal courts has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, fueled by an unbroken string of pro-marriage rulings since the Supreme Court first weighed in on the subject last June.As each decision strikes down state bans, it becomes more difficult for judges to ignore the opinions of peers who have found no constitutional basis to prevent gays and lesbians from having the same marriage rights as heterosexuals.That trend, which reached a frenetic pace over the past two weeks with rulings in Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon and Pennsylvania, has created an aura of inevitability around the same-sex marriage movement.

Do you think some of the things that are happening in the world today are just part of the end times? I have often wondered, if even prayer can stop the things that are to be fulfilled according to the word. I continue to pray for all the wrong in the world, and I think we all should regardless of what is coming. I guess it's all so hard to figure out, are we praying in vain, if all this bad is coming no matter what?

I will never surrender to the wrongs in this world, but we are really beginning to be trampled upon, will little vocal support from the Church. I really wished sometimes the Churches would just give up there tax exempt status, and pay taxes and be able to really get totally involved in this whole mess. I guess sometimes even with the Church, money is more important than morals.

Wonder why they don't stock that title tract?
I like Chick....he's hardcore.
