Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is Opposing Plumbing Fittings?

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is Opposing Plumbing Fittings? October 30, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine – What God Hath Joined Together

Editor’s note: Now Michael is equating marriage to plumbing fittings, as in if the parts don’t easily go together and make one unit then there can be no ‘marriage’ What do you think about his analogy? One point that his homophobic rantings brings up is who has the right to define marriage? Is it those in the union? The government? The church?

What God hath joined together, let no man—or Supreme Court—put asunder. God will never join together two people of the same sex. They can call it marriage, but there is no holy matrimony for same-sex partners. Mechanical engineers, pipe fitters, and plumbers speak of the “marriage” of two units into one functioning piece. By nature a male fitting screws into a female fitting and the marriage is then a leak-proof conduit. A plumber could never couple two male or two female fittings. Two carnal bodies may merge in a perverted act, but two of a kind cannot marry.

Holy matrimony is a picture of Christ and his church. Two men joined in an indecent act, contrary to nature, could no more represent Christ and the church than could Satan and the antichrist cohabitating on a usurped throne. God is highly offended at the Supreme Court of the US and any who would yield to its unholy dictates. The legalizing of abortion did not make it cease to be murder, and the legalizing of same-sex “marriage” does not make it any less sinful.
