My Spirit groans, even as His Spirit groans.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that "gay marriage" was legal in all 50 states.  Immediately, both sides started shouting -- praise or condemnation.

Today's ubiquitous media coverage -- from mainstream to small blogs like this one--allows a platform for any opinion or slant.   And there have been many leading up to and after today's announcement.

The "Christian Right" (a term I loath) have been outspoken in their opposition to "gay marriage."  Such leaders have shouted about how "gay marriage" redefines God's law.  And that it "diminishes" what God has ordained.  I've heard concerns that two men getting married supersedes what God intended.

In essence, that man's law has overtaken God's will.  This breakes my heart.

How can someone schooled in God's word possible believe this?!?

Those espousing that man has trumped God are not talking about the one true God.  Because that simply isn't possible.

There is nothing man can do or say that places man above God.  The creation cannot supersede the Creator.

No action, no law, no deed, nor even thought happens outside of the God's governance. 

Certainly, most of what happens in this fallen world grieves the Holiness of God.  But it does not and, in fact, can not deminish God.  Statements to the contrary may be newsworthy or popular, but those are man's trappings.
