By an overwhelming majority of 105 to only 18, the Scottish Parliament has voted for the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill, to allow so-called same-sex marriage in Scotland. In jovial mood, many MSPs seemed well pleased with themselves. Meanwhile Scripture’s explanation and condemnation of the deplorable process could not be clearer: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. . . . Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:26, 27, 32).
