Two Truths and a Lie

God's prophets have told us repeatedly that marriage is between one man and one woman. Anyone who claims otherwise is being deceived by the devil.

All men are created equal and should be treated equally under the law regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. Anyone who claims otherwise does not see other humans as fellow brothers and sisters.

Somehow these two truths must be reconciled. These two truths were given to us by God and are endorsed by God. God's house is not divided against itself. If it were, it could not stand. But we know it stands. God is not dead. His prophets walk the earth! His Church has been restored and will fill the entire earth! Let's not find ourselves on a side that seeks to tear down God's house or His laws. Somehow, He believes these truths can be reconciled. It is up to us to find out how.

Congress, the courts, and every president to-date has failed to uphold these two truths by seeking to reconcile them. Instead, both sides of the political spectrum have chosen to take the easy way out by choosing to compromise one or the other of these two truths. When we as a society choose to betray one or both of these truths, we will do so to our own destruction.

Our civic and religious leaders must do the hard work and preserve these two eternal truths. They must find a way. There is a way. I know there is.
