    WASHINGTON (BP) -- A federal judge has upheld Nevada's constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between one man and one woman, providing a victory for social conservatives who have suffered a string of court losses on the issue.

    In his Nov. 26 opinion, Judge Robert C. Jones ruled that Nevada had a constitutional right to pass the amendment, which was approved twice by voters -- once in 2000 with 70 percent of the vote and a second time in 2002 with 67 percent. The lawsuit was brought by Lambda Legal, which advocates for gay issues.

    Within the past year, appeals courts have ruled against the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California Proposition 8, each of which could be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in coming months.

    Have we not been surprised yet, that Sin City hasn't been high profile, at the forefront, of the homosexual movement in the USA? :type:

    The bible is clear about the sin of homosexuality, effeminate and other such sins. There are comments in various forums saying the bible says nothing about homosexuality nor does it even use the word "homosexual" (which is true for the King James Version since that word was not used but it does use the term "abusers of themselves with mankind" and the Greek word that was translated into that phrase means "a Sodomite" see 1 Corinthians 6) but newer bible versions do use the word "homosexuals").

    All the MEN who gathered at Lot's house, both MEN and BOYS in Sodom AND the surrounding towns, and then they refused Lot's offer of two virgins (his daughters no less) in exchange for them not touching who the crowd thought were male visitors who had come under Lot's roof. Clearly, the MEN wanted "to know" (to have sex) with the MEN.

    People can, and do, read into it whatever seems to serve their agenda but the word is crystal clear about what happened in Sodom and what God's response was. IMO, we are then given further details of what was transpiring in Sodom and the surrounding towns, centuries later when 1 Corinthians 6 was written.
