Marriage Made in Heaven (redux)

The Holy Family. I'm talking about none other than the Virgin named Mary, Joseph her husband and the Child called Christ.

And I guess the second important lesson the Holy Family affords us (the first lesson in A 'God' Thing) is this: Marriage is between a man and a man or a woman and a woman like we found out some years ago in England was okay. Not!

Marriage is NOT between a man and a man or a woman and a woman ~ and I don't care if Elton John disagrees. (His celebrity status was used to promote the England thing.) Instead, marriage is to be between a man and a woman.

The Scripture (and Christmas story, too!) can't be clearer on this. Matthew 1:24 reads: "
After Joseph woke up, he and Mary (not Larry) were soon married, just as the Lord's angel had told him to do."

This is God's prescription for a man and a woman to be joined together in holy matrimony: "For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh." (Genesis 2:24)

Marriage truly was made in heaven (not England).
