The history of every temptation, and of every sin, is the same; the outward object of attraction, the inward commotion of mind, the increase and triumph of passionate desire; ending in the degradation, slavery, and ruin of the soul (James 1:15Â 1 John 2:16).
excerpt from, "Genesis 3:6"
Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to Godâ€™s law, neither indeed can it be. 8 Those who are in the flesh canâ€™t please God.
Perversion of marriage came after the perversion of morals.
The perversion of marriage was inevitable considering what Satan is doing in the world today. (Or is it 'allowed' to do)?
An obvious point and applicable to these times is..... Proverbs 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men,"
"Growing acceptance" - Really means that the reprobates are doing what comes naturally. They are rebelling against God and His Scriptures. And the increase we observe is because sin dominated hearts and minds are joining the rebellion.

"measuring bias" "how government legislation can inform individuals' attitudes," "if anti-gay bias was on the rise everywhere" "Bias spiked in states that had not approved same-sex marriage"
The article writers give away their own obviously biased position with their language use. Ask them and they will say they are just reporting the news. The walking dead want the living to be like them.
Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth. Repeat anything, loud enough, and often enough, and it becomes normalized within society...anything at all. Joseph Goebbels was Hitler's propaganda machine who came up with that wildly successful law of propaganda, known today as the illusion of truth.
The sodomites were given the green light to marry, and soon after, infected an entire nation like a plague. Their agenda has even become a part of the public school systems "curriculum", so to speak, all of Hollywood has become their personal propaganda machine, mainstream media celebrates them, and this nation's courts have declared them a protected species. The sodomite agenda has gone full circle, and their dirty deeds of death, are now being celebrated, glamorized, condoned, and even, encouraged, whereas just a few short years ago, they lurked in the shadows because they feared a society that ostracized and condemned them...the very same society that now stands alongside them, fighting for their rights to do wicked things. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.
