FLIPPER?

Well that didn't take long. I have been saying for a while that the degradation of the covenant of marriage would not stop with homosexual marriage, and now we have proof of that. I give you this from the wire:

"Sharon Tendler, a 41-years-old Jewish millionaire from London married her beloved Cindy, a 35-years-old dolphin, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday. The groom, a resident of the Eilat dolphin reef, met Tendler 15 years ago, when she first visited the resort. The British rock concert producer took a liking to the dolphin and has made a habit of traveling to Eilat two or three times a year and spending time with her underwater sweetheart. "The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride said after the wedding. After a years-long romance, Tendler decided to embark on the highly unusual path of tying the knot with her beloved dolphin. Last week, she approached Cindy's trainer Maya Zilber with the extraordinary request. "

That is right, we have a wedding between a woman and a dolphin! You read and hear the woman speaking about the dolphin as if it were human. This is the consequence of degrading the sacred covenant of marriage to something that is mans idea. Marriage is a covenant designed by God for His people, Genesis 2:24, it was confirmed by Jesus in Matthew chapter 19 where it is made clear the passage in Genesis refers to the sacred covenant of marriage.

But man in his never ending quest to be God has come up with "better" ideas for marriage. Why not a man with a man, or a woman with a woman, or a woman with a dolphin? Where does it stop? It does not stop until the coming of our Lord, but it is necessary for God's people to continue to be His ambassadors to this world and speak His truth into these arenas. God has always had people who stood up for what was right and true, regardless of the acceptance of the hearers or the climate of the culture. So be encouraged believers and speak His truth!
