Heather Barwick, who was raised by her mother and her mother’s lesbian partner, wrote in an essay this week that same-sex “marriage” is not the same as normal marriage between a man and a woman, that the traditional family is best, and that while growing up she “ached every day for a dad.”
Barwick, who is 32 now, married, and has four children, said that “same-sex marriage and parenting withholds either a mother or father from a child while telling him or her that it doesn’t matter. That it’s all the same. But it’s not.”
Same-sex marriage withholds either a mother or father from a child while telling him or her that it doesn’t matter. That it’s all the same. But it’s not. A lot of us, a lot of your kids, are hurting. My father’s absence created a huge hole in me, and I ached every day for a dad. I loved my mom’s partner, but another mom could never have replaced the father I lost.
I grew up surrounded by women who said they didn’t need or want a man. Yet, as a little girl, I so desperately wanted a daddy. It is a strange and confusing thing to walk around with this deep-down unquenchable ache for a father, for a man, in a community that says that men are unnecessary. There were times I felt so angry with my dad for not being there for me, and then times I felt angry with myself for even wanting a father to begin with. There are parts of me that still grieve over that loss today.
I’m not saying that you can’t be good parents. You can. I had one of the best. I’m also not saying that being raised by straight parents means everything will turn out okay. We know there are so many different ways that the family unit can break down and cause kids to suffer: divorce, abandonment, infidelity, abuse, death, etc. But by and large, the best and most successful family structure is one in which kids are being raised by both their mother and father.
It’s only now, as I watch my children loving and being loved by their father each day, that I can see the beauty and wisdom in traditional marriage (God’s way & inline with nature) and parenting.

This is food for thought. Below is the internet ranking of the church of satan website.
Below you will also notice that more than average women access this account and the people who access this account are educated people. Nothing new under the sun. Solomon said, out of 1000 woman I found not one righteous and out of a thousand men I found one. Also, the Bible records that the children of darkness are wiser than the children of light. Blessed are the poor for they shall see God.
I know where you live–where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city–where Satan lives. Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality. ‘Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. – Revelation 2:13-15;16-17
When once a brave man storms a castle full of soldiers not caring for his life because the damsel has been captured. He is not averted by the high odds of losing the battle for his heart is already missing. Beating inside the damsel this brave mans heart beats. Each breathe she takes fuels his resolve to overcome the greatest challenge. Love will always triumph over fear. Love transcends a persons body and is held captive in someone else.
If a guard were to capture him they would quickly realize his heart is not here but is lodged with another. His love has driven him this far.
When the people of God fall in love with Jesus the same way this brave man has for a sinner, what would happen within our world? The hoards of darkness grow thicker. The propaganda machine is on full throttle and the gospel of Satan is preached throughout every form of media known to man. Massive amounts of money is being spent on the promotion of foolishness.
Why are female teachers raping and molesting children in record numbers and female doctors attacking uber drivers. As the role in violence perpetrated by women increase on television so does the effect happen within real life. The gospel of Satan being preached is working. Millions of so called Christians dying to spend their money, time, and energy to support the preaching of Satan’s gospel and do we think our children will be safe?
Parents are being killed by their children and what is blamed? Mental illness. No it is sin. The fruits of unrighteousness are deadly. The wages of sin is death.
It is time for the Christian to fall in love with Jesus, so that we are not afraid of the wickedness of men. It is also time for the Christian church to kick out the imposters and clean the house or God who I believe is missing from the majority of churches anyway is not coming to the temple, until you evict Satan.
There is a reason the way that leads to destruction is wide. Its easy.
Do not let love confuse you. Love covers a multitude of sins and love never fails, but love does not come without pain. There are some believers who tell you that if you love someone or tell someone about Jesus in a loving way, that somehow you will be received by everyone. This is not true.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is offensive to those who are perishing. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18). We love people because we know how much God loves us. We love people because God forgave us of so many sins and it is his desire to have compassion on others who would receive him. We share the love of Jesus because of what Christ is/has done in our heart. We share the love of God because it is his command.
Prepare your heart to love your enemies, by pursuing Jesus. When someone attacks you and your family there is a natural desire to sin against them, but if you do, you impede God’s judgment on them. God will open doors that no man can shut and will close doors that no man can open. Trust him in your trial. The prophets enemies are the signposts that this person is a child of God. Never forget they “hated Jesus without a cause (John 15:25).” and because you are his servant they will hate you (John 15:20). Get excited! You are bearing the marks of Jesus Christ in your body and do you not think that God will not bless you? He comes quickly with his reward.
Rest in the Lord. Wait patiently for him. You will look up and your enemy will be no more.
I tried to cover my shine
I’ve tried stayin in the lines
I, I, I, don’t wanna hide
No not tonight
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want you to look me in the eye, eye, eye
Ready or not here, here, here, here, here, I come
I’m about to show you where the light comes from, oh, oh
Ready or not here here I come
This is who I am I won’t hide it
I’m a take it all over the world
To the young, to the old every boy and girl
Ready or not here, here, I come
I’m a show the world where the love is
I’m not ever selling out
Love and God is what it’s all about
Give him verything to see the lost get found
Yeah it’s goin down
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want u to look me in the eye eye eye
Refuse to keep this buried deep inside of me
Yeah this little light of mine
It’s time to let it shine a bit
Cause there’s no point in hiding it
It’s everything I am
The source off all my hope
And it’s the reason why I stand
I pledge allegiance to be somebody real, there’s no more holding it back
I’m showing them how I feel
Cause love is more than a word
It’s a noun and a verb
And hiding it is absurd,
How many knew this song is actually the top 2013 Christian hit called Ready or Not by Nicole Britt aka white girl and Lacrea aka black boy?
I changed the title because I was listening to the song in my car the other day and I kept thinking these two are talking about themselves more than God. Beside the single reference to God, you get lost in coming out. I thought they were coming out to tell the world about their interracial relationship. She’s saying not tonight and he’s saying cause there is no point in hiding it. Hiding what? Anyway, someone help me out here.
