"Not 'rational'" echoes

The primary legal argument for overturning the vote of the will of the people in California of Proposition 8 is said to have argued that to deem gay marriage illegal is "not rational". The word "rational" comes from the word, act, "reason". They are just like France leading up to and after the French Revolution, divorcing reason from faith. They are using reason alone. Will we someday have the "goddess of reason" erected in our churches, again, like in 1791 when the Cathedral of Notre Dame was confiscated from the Catholic Church for the government whom did just that? They turned the cathedral into the "Temple of Reason" and to get rid of the Sabbath observance they employed a ten day week that originated with the Egyptians. America seems to be going down the same path as France.

More later.

Do they not know?

The homosexuals are living in the dark. Don't they know about the Eucharist? That is the Body and Blood of our Lord! Until they are obedient to God's natural and Divine laws, they won't know the light because the darkness can't stand the light (cf. Jn 1:5). The Eucharist is the light of our Christian lives. Everyone needs it and should desire it. We have to tell them about it. They obviously do not know.

Knowing is related to belief, though, and belief comes through the gift of faith. The people of God are obligated to plant seeds in their minds, but ultimately prayer and the subsequent gift of faith that God will offer the active homosexuals is what will bring them out of darkness. If they are obedient to the grace of the gift of faith they will know the light and it will overcome their darkness.
