‘Politically incorrect’

In Manila I heard one preach, “I may be politically incorrect, but marriage is for a man and a woman.”

Law students, marriage counselors and experts memorize this two-sentence definition of Marriage under the Philippines’ Family Code:

“Marriage is a special contract of permanent union between a man and a woman entered into in accordance with law for the establishment of conjugal and family life. It is the foundation of the family and an inviolable social institution whose nature, consequences, and incidents are governed by law and not subject to stipulation, except that marriage settlements may fix the property relations during the marriage within the limits provided by this Code.”

That marriage is between a man and a woman is, after all, a politically correct statement. DC Alviar

  1. God’s Plan for Marriage

    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:27-28)

    And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. (Hosea 2:19)
