A Return to Pagan Sexuality: Domestic Partnership Ordinance in Cambridge, MA
TUPELO, Miss. — Earlier this month, Cambridge, MA became the second city to officially recognize polyamory through an ordinance amending the city’s existing statute so that domestic partnerships are not limited to only two people. Cambridge joins the city of Sommerville, MA regarding this revised policy.
The city of Cambridge now defines a domestic partnership as “the entity formed by two or more persons” who are not related and “consider themselves to be a family.” They must file a registration stating that they are “in a relationship of mutual support, caring and commitment and intend to remain in such a relationship.” The revised policy eliminates the requirement that those in the “partnership live together” and also removes the condition that domestic partners provide proof of their “familial relationship to the city.”
“AFA predicted this decades ago,” stated Ed Vitagliano, executive vice president of the American Family Association (AFA, www.AFA.net). “Once you reject the biblical model for human sexuality, marriage, and family when it comes to homosexuality, there is no logical stopping place. Polygamy and polyamory are acceptable. This return to pagan sexuality began with a rejection of God and His word. Unfortunately for the people of Massachusetts––and eventually the people of this nation––paganism leads to barbarism. We can expect lawlessness and violence to only increase as our people rush headlong away from the Lord in true Romans 1 fashion. Darkness will only deepen in their hearts and minds.
“However, this is also a moment in history for the church to shine. A people who does not know the Lord Jesus are a people who can hear the Gospel for the first time. There is another truth in the Romans 1 chapter––that the Gospel is the power of God to save anyone and everyone who believes. This is truly a time for Christians to say, ‘I am not ashamed of the Gospel.’ The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only hope for America. It always was.”
