Tomorrow, the U. S. Supreme Court is expected to deliver rulings on two cases related to gay marriage, Perry v. Hollingsworth and Windsor v. United States.
In the Perry case, the court will decide whether California voters discriminated against gay people when they voted to ban same-sex marriage, and in Windsor, the court will decide whether the federal Defense of Marriage Act--which limits all federal marriage benefits to opposite sex couples--violates the constitutional rights of same-sex couples (Yahoo News).
On many occasions, I have expressed my apathy about what goes on in the U. S. I couldn't care less, save for the Jews who are stuck there, financially, emotionally, and, of course, spiritually.
Jews, the U. S. is not your home; Israel is. Get out already.
So, why am I writing about this issue? My concern is twofold.
1) Why the heck are Jews, even some so-called Orthodox Jews, supportive of same-gender marriage in the U. S.?
Why am I so concerned about what the goyim do? Well, I'm not. Even though it is assur (forbidden) for even non-Jews to enter same gender marriage contracts, I sincerely doubt that they, save for some religious Christians and Muslims, or even you, would be in the least bit interested in hearing about any halakhic (Jewish legal) which indicate this. (A-hem!...Babylonian Talmud, Hullin 92)
Nonetheless, those so-called Orthodox Jewish supporters have NO business supporting gay marriage. It's assur. Can't they at least be silent on this issue?
But, that does remind me.

2) Not wanting to be outdone by the goyim, will Israel's government be next to confront this issue?
I was sent the following survey results. Who knows how valid or reliable this study is? Nonetheless, it is a clear indicator to me that the issue of gay marriage is being discussed, and some individuals and organizations, with anti-Torah, Erev Rav backing, are preparing to do battle here in Israel.

55.0%-Yes, 38.4%-No, 6.6%-No Opinion
This survey also makes the claim that 9% of those surveyed in support of gay marriage in Israel, were "religious," if not "Haredi."
Gee. If that's true, I wonder just what Mako considers "religious," and I also wonder exactly how the survey questions were phrased to those "Haredim." Hmm...
Jewish Libertarian and Anarchist friends and acquaintances, sorry, I know you don't like being told what to do, but it's assur. Nothing I can do about that.
Nope. It is not assur based on that pasuq branded in your heads….
Rather, it is assur, as we learn out from this pasuq:יח,כב וְאֶת-זָכָר--לֹא תִשְׁכַּב, מִשְׁכְּבֵי אִשָּׁה: תּוֹעֵבָה, הִוא.
Leviticus 18:22 You will not lie with mank, as with womankind; it is abomination.
…and one of those “deeds” was marriage contracts between two men, among other things.ויקרא יח,ג כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ-מִצְרַיִם אֲשֶׁר יְשַׁבְתֶּם-בָּהּ, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ; וּכְמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ-כְּנַעַן אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מֵבִיא אֶתְכֶם שָׁמָּה, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ, וּבְחֻקֹּתֵיהֶם, לֹא תֵלֵכוּ.
Leviticus 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, you shall not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan, to where I bring you, you shall not do; neither shall you walk in their statutes.
The ensuing battle in Israel (and there WILL be some kind of battle) will be just like that taking place in the U. S., designed to keep the people divided, and focused on a side issue, while the Powers That Be (…and I’m not talking about the K’nesseth) maintains control over the masses, and continues to plot and plan undisturbed.
The Erev Rav controlled government has already succeeded in
Then, why can't I have this?
Because THIS is considered, by those calling the shots, as “primitive” and “oppressive.” (eyes rolling)
And, I will tell you why, too. Because the secular, Ashkenazi, Western-assimilationist, anti-Torah, "Wannabe Goyim," Labor Zionists say so.
Apparently, the battle has just begun!
