Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage Will Increase Prevalence of Homosexuality: Voters Unaware of Research
SAN DIEGO Calif., Sept. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Voters in several U.S. states soon will decide whether same-sex marriage will be permitted in their state. However, most voters are unaware of scientific research which reveals that social endorsement of homosexuality, as would be the case with the legalization of same-sex marriage, will lead more individuals into a homosexual lifestyle.
Trayce L. Hansen, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist, recently reviewed extensive worldwide research on the origins of homosexuality and the impact social endorsement has on the rate of homosexual behavior.
Dr. Hansen's findings are reported in a newly released article entitled, "Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Will Increase Prevalence of Homosexuality: Research Provides Significant Evidence." This latest piece is the author's third in a series of articles concerning same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and children. The previous articles in the series are entitled, "Love Isn't Enough: Five Reasons Why Same- Sex Marriage Will Harm Children" and "Pro- Homosexual Researchers Conceal Findings: Children Raised by Openly Homosexual Parents More Likely To Engage in Homosexuality." All three articles, as well as other background information and research references, are available on her website at http://www.drtraycehansen.com.

In posting this I feel like I am "preaching to the choir" and I really do hope this is the case with readers of SI.
One thing that has astounded me is the shallowness of some people's convictions. "If it is legal there is nothing wrong with it" is the mentality of the carnal man. So, then, if the laws are changed to accommodate sinful behaviors, it must mean it is not wrong. Hence, the seriousness of the passage of laws protecting sin. Romans 13:3 informs us that rulers are not a terror to good works but to the evil. When one no longer sees this as the norm, one has to wonder how much longer, God, can you tolerate it?
While it is terrible for the government to tolerate it, it is an abomination for the church to embrace it. The Christians are gradually becoming hardened to it by overexposure to it by friends, acquaintances declaring themselves to be 'gay'. And "they are such nice people" the devil whispers in our ears so how can a loving God be harsh with them? The logical answer is that He won't but that is resting on the devils lie "yea, hath God said..."
Preachers used to say if you quit teaching the church about something, they will embrace it in the next generation. If you doubt it, check your history to see what was taught 100 years ago, or 50 and how many church still teach it and with its absence, what has happened? Now this slide has accelerated with alarming speed. Instead of a generation later embracing ??? is is now down to mere years.
So where does the Christian find himself/herself in this mess? Do we vote to register our convictions? Or, do we stay home and pray? or do we pray and vote? What would God have us do? What is our responsibility?
If homosexuality is normalized by laws protecting it, what unthinkable perversion will be imposed upon society next? I dare say, life will become more dangerous then ever before. And pity the children!! LORD have mercy!!
If I recall life from years ago, people would react with horror when informed of some perversion: it was discussed with hushed tones, out of children's' earshot, and where are we today? Children hear it from infancy - they are no longer shielded from it, either by the media, the idiot box or music or conversations.
And it all begins when there is no longer a reverence in the hearts of men towards God. This is the root cause. People have in their minds pulled God to their own level and no longer esteem Him as the Almighty God that he really is. They think they can manipulate Him with their convoluted theories, reasoning's coupled with impressive works. Woe is man!
