The legalization of same-sex marriage has given way to a new problem for a Pennsylvania couple, who technically are father and son.
Before states across the country began striking down bans on same-sex marriage and the Supreme Court ultimately decided the issue nationwide, some gay couples used adoption laws as a way to gain legal recognition as a family, and the related benefits such as inheritance and hospital visitation rights.
Nino Esposito, a retired teacher, adopted his partner Roland “Drew” Bosee, a former freelance and technical writer, in 2012, after more than 40 years of being a couple.
Now, they’re trying to undo the adoption to get married and a state trial court judge has rejected their request, saying his ability to annul adoptions is generally limited to instances of fraud.
“We never thought we’d see the day” that same-sex marriage would be legal in Pennsylvania, Esposito, 78, told CNN in a telephone interview.
The adoption “gave us the most legitimate thing available to us” at the time, said Bosee, 68.
The adoption process Bosee and Esposito went through was not uncommon. Although it is difficult to gather hard numbers, the ACLU of Pennsylvania, a group supporting the couple, says it learned that many couples in states across the country lawfully took advantage of adoption laws in order to protect their relationships. Now these couples seek to marry, but first they must confront state adoption laws that provide no easy path to annulment.
In Pennsylvania, Esposito and Bosee knew other couples who successfully annulled their adoptions in order to marry.
They quickly made plans to do the same after Pennsylvania legalized marriage between same-sex couples in May 2014.
“We realized we could have a complete union, which is what we want,” Esposito said.
Marriage Belongs to God! Marriage was the first Covenant God Ordained. He Ordained Marriage for a Man and a Woman. The Rainbow Belongs to God!! The Rainbow was the second Covenant God Ordained. He Ordained that Covenant with “every living creature of all flesh.” That Covenant was God Promising He would not destroy the earth again:
“And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.” (Genesis 9:16)
Same-sex marriage has TOUCHED God’s Marriage and His Rainbow. Homosexuals do NOT want to marry for “love” as they have proclaimed, but as an act AGAINST God. Since the Bible goes against homosexuality they are using same-sex marriage to go AGAINST what is Precious to God. There are so many other symbols they could have used to represent same-sex marriage, but they chose the rainbow because they wanted something else to SLAP God in the Face with. Homosexuals make everyone that goes against them the perpetrator to get people’s eyes off of the True Perpetrators.
Like homosexuals Obama had no problem TOUCHING what Belongs to God either. That is why he lighted up the White House like a rainbow when homosexuals got the right to marry nationwide. For his great work now “Obama the first U.S. president on LGBT magazine cover.” (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter) The article states:
President Barack Obama covers Out magazine’s new Out100 2015 issue, becoming the first sitting president to be photographed for the cover of an LGBT publication.
The magazine’s editors call it a “historic moment in itself” and a statement on how much the Obama administration has done for LGBT rights. In an article introducing the cover the editors write, “The 44th President of the United States is our Ally of the Year - a president who came to office on a wave of euphoria, appeared to lose momentum halfway through, and has since rallied, helping us secure marriage equality, among other landmark initiatives that are transforming our place in America.”
Obama sat down with the publication’s editor-in-chief, Aaron Hicklin, for an interview. Hicklin wrote that Obama and his administration have “ushered extraordinary change into the lives of LGBT Americans.” He said his “evolution on marriage equality has been something to behold.”
WRONG always PRODUCES MORE WRONG. Obama’s stand on same-sex marriage makes his judgment BLURRED on EVERYTHING. That is why he makes comments like “Obama Criticized for Claim That ISIS Is ‘Contained,’” (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter) which states:
Critics are lashing out at President Obama in the wake of the attacks in Paris on Friday for remarks he made to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos a day earlier in which he said that ISIS was “contained.”
“From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them,” Obama told ABC on Thursday. “They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria it – they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
The comment came just hours before the announcement of a U.S. airstrike in Syria that had targeted ‘Jihadi John.’ But the mainly symbolic victory was cut short following the attacks in Paris on Friday in which at least 127 people were killed.
“Islamic State threatens attack on Washington, other countries” (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter) does not sound like they are “Contained,” which states:
Islamic State warned in a new video on Monday that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria would suffer the same fate as France, and threatened to attack in Washington.
Obama ordered Osama Bin Laden to be killed to boost his approval rating. With Bin Laden at least we knew who we were fighting. Like in the first Captain America cut off one head and two will grow back. Cutting off one head did not solve the problem. It looks like more than two heads grew back. Enemies we really do not know who they are makes “Contained” impossible.
My daily Bible reading shows what happens when people TOUCH what Belongs to God:
“And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod. When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again. And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day. But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof. And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god. They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither. And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts. Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people. So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there. And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven. And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.” (I Samuel 5:1-12, 6:19)
satan has people busy fighting for their Rights. People were fighting to have the right to marry a person that is the same sex as they are. Homosexuals won that fight. People are fighting for the right to kill themselves. People have won that fight in six states as I stated in my “Do you Know the Difference between Right and Wrong?” Blog. People fighting for Rights is removing God from America. God is the ONLY ONE that does the IMPOSSIBLE.
Life is about the Choices people make. Eternity is also about the Choices people make. Instead of people Fighting for Rights people’s TOP Priority should be Fighting for where they will be spending Eternity. satan makes sure people are in a daily battle for their souls. Since people are already Fighting daily they might as well fight for what gets them on the Streets of Gold. The way people Fight to spend Eternity on the Streets of Gold is “God’s Process.” (Posted at this Website) That is a battle people cannot afford to lose:
“And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.” (Revelation 21:21)
The Right to marry a person that is the same sex as that person will cause both of them to spend Eternity in Hell. The Right to kill yourself will also cause people to spend Eternity in Hell. That means people are Fighting for the Right to spend Eternity in Hell. satan’s Only Job is to Steal, Kill and Destroy. That means people Fighting for Rights have played right into his hands.
My Heart and Prayers goes out to the families of the people killed in Paris. I usually only talk about America, but same-sex marriage is happening all over the world. France made it legal May 18, 2013. It is the thirteenth country worldwide to allow same-sex couples to marry. It looks like France was about sending a message to Obama and America because France flag colors are the same as America! That means Obama’s mistakes are affecting the world!!
I love the music from the sixties and seventies. That was when people were writing music and lyrics. One of my favorite songs is “Which Way Is Up” by Stargard. That is the question people must asked themselves before they make any decisions.
HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!!!
