Are all relationships equal? ...

The Family Revised

"The Family" is in trouble. No longer are despairing cries about it being heard solely from traditional churchy folk - now we also hear it from politicians, police, academics and social workers.

There's now no doubt that divorce, for example, hurts. It damages `children' - even into their twenties. It is, too, a vast financial burden on society. And it wrecks lives down the generations, and weakens the nation.

Government proposes a variety of remedial measures - and some are to be applauded. But what of the new definition of `family'?

"Undoubtedly children benefit from being raised in an emotionally and economically secure two-parent family" says a new Rowntree Foundation report. But is that what our government means? No, For many politicians subscribe to the perverted and subversive (to national stability) sinful notion that such a family is past its "sell-by" date. They recognize as `normal' any form of relationship.

The sovereign God will pour out judgment on our nation as long as co-habitation and perverse sexual relationships are honored by those who have been, by God, delegated authority to rule us.
