LESSONS IN LOGIC: Slavery Was A ‘Civil’ Right

I keep hearing people proudly proclaiming that gay marriage is now a civil right.  It reminds me of a line in the movie, “Princes Bride:”

But there is a twist.  Yes, gay marriage is a ‘civil’ right, but then, so was slavery!

If this offends you, that’s too bad: the ignorance of those who do not understand what they have done not only offends me, but worse, it offends the Author of our Natural Rights.  A ‘civil’ right is nothing more than what man says it is.  If you doubt me, please review my post, Natural vs. Civil Rights, where I clearly explain the difference.  The thing we all need to understand is that a ‘civil’ right can be taken away and you have no moral grounds upon which to object.  The only claim a person can morally make is to his or her Natural Rights.  Since gay marriage tramples on the Natural Right of Conscience, and since Natural Rights cannot conflict (by definition), this means gay marriage is a civil right.  Therefore, it is not a right at all, but a clear violation of Natural Rights and Natural Law – and that is also by definition.

[NOTE: I stress ‘by definition’ because — according to the rules of logic — no one can rationally argue with a definition.  Only people who have renounced the use of reason do so, and if you have renounced the use of reason, you have also admitted that you idea of right/wrong is based on ‘might-makes-right.’  In other words, the only people who argue with definitions are barbarians, and the natural state of a barbarian is to be at war with civilization.  Now, how can anyone even pretend toward a claim of rights, or even to right and wrong if their natural state is to be at war with the very system invented to protect individual rights from barbarians?  That would be a contradiction, and appealing to a contradiction is  yet another example of the irrational mind.]

  1. I heard on the news (which often cannot be trusted) that an appeal to this ruling can be made within 3 weeks. Do you happen to know if that’s true? It probably wouldn’t even matter, unless, the call for Kagan and Ginsburg to recuse themselves from the reconsideration of the case happens. Their obvious bias towards same-sex marriage via the “weddings” that they officiated at before this ruling should have eliminated them from deciding votes in this case!

    1. I do not think you can ask the SCOTUS to reconsider itself, but I will ask my co-blogger, Texas. He is a lawyer and may know the answer.

      That said, I would not place my hope in those people. Men will fail us — especially in these times when the hearts of everyone who is not already sealed by the Lord is lawless (as in the days of Lot and Noah — they are all depraved). I believe we have reached the times the Lord spoke about when he told us — through His servants — that His Spirit will not always strive to restrain the heart of man. We are in the times of 2 Thessalonians 2: the age of the lawless one and the great apostasy (falling away). The rulings this week just witness to the fact that this evil now runs the nation, that’s all.

      1. Very true. I have been writing about the connections between the radical homosexual agenda and the Days of Noah and Lot at both my current blog and my former blog.

        The book of Jude speaks about the sexual depravity and falling away due to:

        Jde 1:4

        For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God [fn] and our Lord Jesus Christ.

        It is truly sad to note that many young people of the Millennial generation went through all of the homosexual indoctrination in high school and college; and they have fallen prey to the evil that now runs the nation! We are to:

        Jde 1:21

        keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

        and also:

        Jde 1:22

        And on some have compassion, making a distinction; [fn]

        Jde 1:23

        but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, [fn] hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

        I am thankful and grateful to God that you are doing His Will here at this blog and warning those who are lost to awaken from their reprobation before it’s too late.

        1. Well, as long as we understand that homosexuality is just ONE form of depravity in our society. I do not wish to single out any one group. Too many in our society have accepted the new sexual norms — even ‘Christians.’ People have forgotten that ANY sex outside of marriage — GOD’S definition of marriage — is a sin EQUAL to homosexuality. But so is cheating, lying, stealing… We have also forgotten that it is still stealing, even if we vote the government to do the stealing for us. There is so much lawlessness in our society today, we no longer recognize it as such 😦

  2. P.S. When I click on the link for “Natural vs. Civil Rights,” I get the message that the page cannot be displayed. I would like to read it so when you get a chance, can you please share the link again?
