What Happened to Colorado?

Colorado used to be a bellwether state. Now it has become a breeding ground for the liberal agenda where morality is under constant attack. The latest “victory” is the legalization of same sex unions. How fast has this state turned? In 2006, Colorado voters outlawed same-sex marriages. In last year’s election, marijuana was legalized. As another example of our two-tiered justice system, the federal government is not enforcing federal laws criminalizing marijuana possession. This recently turned blue state is undergoing a transformation that will lead to its moral and economic bankruptcy.

As Colorado eviscerates the 2nd amendment, try to remember how this state used to be.

Colorado Approves Same-Sex Unions

With a stroke of the governor’s pen, Colorado on Thursday legalized civil unions for same-sex couples, a major shift for a Western state where voters outlawed same-sex marriages in 2006.

The law makes Colorado the 18th state to allow gay marriage or some form of same-sex union, and its signing comes days before the Supreme Court hears two major cases on marriage equality.

For many gay Coloradans, it was a jubilant — if almost unreal — moment.

“When we started fighting for it, this was a foregone conclusion that it wasn’t going to happen,” said Jerry Cunningham, the publisher of the magazine Out Front Colorado. “It’s kind of amazing. It’s creating an awareness that we can have relationships. It validates it and legitimizes it, and says it’s O.K.”

Across Colorado, couples are already making plans. Denver’s fourth annual gay and lesbian wedding expo is being held at the end of April (“Begin planning your own dream civil union!”) and the county clerks in Denver and Boulder are planning to open their offices at midnight on May 1 — when the law takes effect — to hand out the first civil union licenses.

    I find it amazing that conservatives can not grasp and even embrace libertarian ideals even when they appear to be some liberal, marxist agenda. Somehow conservatives have mistakenly attributed an overt divinity to our founding documents, specifically the Constitution which fails to mention Jesus Christ or God even once. Certainly the Founders were ardent men of faith and that drew inspiration from the Bible in forging our nation, but they intentionally avoided the union of God and state in the contract known as the Constitution. I, myself am a follower of Christ, and do not agree with same sex unions, but I am not the judge of those who want to participate in that activity. Only God has that power. I believe people have the inherent right to marry whoever they want. I believe an adult has the right to smoke whatever he/she wants. I believe a man or woman can own any weapon they want even if that means a tank. It is important to keep your religious morality out of the affairs of state especially when the state is founded on the principles of all people being equal. To apply equality only when the matter in question fits into your scope of morality is to completely abandon the spirit of what the founders intended. If you want God to be the absolute in what is legislated then the entire Constitution must be re-crafted, churches and their pastors will need to take back their position in our nation to exert the true influence of God, and liberty and all its benefits will need to be confined only to what Christians believe.

    In truth Christ loved everybody, and if you believe that your sin is less than a man who wants to marry another man out of love, then you probably need to step back and take a look at your own life. You, me and everyone else does not go through a day that is not riddled with sin. You and I were born into it. Everyone’s judgement will be equal in our day of reckoning. Is the effort to restrict same sex marriage done out of love or hate? Is it done in judgement of the liberty these people are trying to express? Depending on your answers to these questions, you may be the one that is out of sync with both God’s sole right of judgment and the inherent rights that all men and women carry with them regardless of your personal morality and sensitivities.

      There is a large difference between a same sex union and a same sex marriage. If both have the same result in the eyes of the government, fine. But that is not the agenda. If it was, marriage would not be under attack. Marriage is a union between one man, one woman and God. The agenda is to weaken our morality by attacking the holy institution of marriage.

      Surprising how our Declaration of Independence appealed to the Lord but people leave that out. Some verses for everyone to consider:

      God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity Romans 1:

      18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

      21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

      24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

      26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

      28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

      No Other Gospel -- Galatians 1

      6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

      10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

      Matthew 23

      12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

      My intent in this reply is to open discussion, not divide. Our forefathers were adamant that the federal government would be limited, especially with laws. They wanted the individual sovereign states to take control of their judicial system. Initially, there were only four capital offenses (death sentences): treason, cowardice, desertion and homosexuality. I will let the Lord judge these people. But I will not sit by while the holy union of a man and woman is attacked.
