St. Augustine, Confessions, 12, 6, says: The mutability of mutable things is simply their capacity for all the forms into which mutable things can be changed. In other words, the ability of changeable things to be changed simply for the sake of change results in the capacity for all the forms into which something changeable can and will be changed by man – or as the 1934 Cole Porter song says, “Anything Goes.”

Once man changed the meaning of God's marriage there now will be a never-ending parade of various types of manmade “marriages” – man to man, woman to woman, transvestite to transvestite, man to beast, multiple men to one woman, multiple women to one man, and so forth. Some child will want to marry his or her pony so that will be permissible; after all, why not, since man's ability for the profane seemingly knows no bounds. Manmade marriage was formed merely for the sake of what the "I" wants, not what lies within God's plan of salvation for mankind.

Same-sex “marriage” recently changed into another new novelty marriage form, and the original change agents are not one bit happy. Homosexual “marriage” became legal in New Zealand on August 19, 2013, and already, one year later, those same change agent homosexual groups are horrified, shocked, and outraged.

On September 12, 2014, the Daily Mail Australia reported, “Two heterosexual men tied the knot this morning under New Zealand's liberal marriage laws. Marrying not for love, but for Rugby World Cup tickets, the two men from Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand officially said 'I do' in front of 60 family and friends at Eden Park in Auckland. The ceremony was broadcast live by Edge Radio, who's I Love You, Man competition was launched earlier this year in a bid to find two straight men willing to wed for the sought after tickets.”

Travis McIntosh, 23, and Matt McCormick, 24, best friends since age 6, won the bromantic radio contest in August and are over the moon – not for a life together, but for the opportunity to head to the Rugby World Cup in England next year. “We entered the competition as a way of taking our (heterosexual) friendship to the next level,” said Travis. “Matt called me and asked me to marry him and I said yes without first asking why. I knew he'd have a good reason. Through the official proposal and preparing for the wedding we've spent so much time together, and we’ve had to share a lot of intimate details with one another. We had so much fun with it all. We got kitted out in amazing suits and I walked down the aisle to Cruisin’.” The wedding was a very male-populated event, with each of the pair having a best man.

After a honeymoon on the Cook Islands, life will return to normal for the non-traditional newlyweds. “We're certainly not ready to start a family.” McIntosh told the Otago Daily Times that he thought the marriage would last about two years. McIntosh said the wedding was not mocking the institution of marriage. “We are not here to insult anyone,” Travis told the NZ Herald. “We are here to do our own thing and travel our own path. It’s just seeing how far two good mates would go to win a trip to the Rugby World Cup.” The Edge's host, Mike, said that the wedding ceremony was filled with good laughs. “They're such funny guys, so the wedding was hilarious. I think it's a good thing to celebrate bromance in such a quirky way, and Matt and Travis really epitomized that.”
However, the same Australian gay rights change agents, were horrified and outraged, and condemned the wedding. “Something like this trivializes what we fought for,” angrily protested Neill Ballantyne, coordinator of Otago University Students Association Queer Support. “The wedding was an insult because marriage equality was a hard-fought battle for gay people. The competition promoted the marriage of two men as something negative, as something outrageous that you’d never consider.” LegaliseLove Aotearoa Wellington co-chairman Joseph Habgood sullenly said the competition made clear that men marrying each other was “something they think is worth having a laugh at.” Other campaigners called it a “homophobic stunt that makes a mockery of marriage equality.” GayNZwhined that insensitive hurtful homophobic jokes were made throughout the ceremony, with one of the grooms making a throat-slitting gesture at the mention of the men sharing a bed together. 

Conservative groups were quick to call the response of horror, anger and outrage from homosexual activists “ironic.” Bob McCoskrie, national director of Family First, a lobby group opposed to same-sex marriage said, “The change in law was an arrogant act of cultural vandalism. This competition makes a mockery of marriage, but so did the redefining of traditional marriage.”

Putting aside this ironic situation of the mutability (changeability) of man-made secular false marriage, let’s briefly compare the meaning of God’s immutable (written in stone) marriage, that is, TRUE MARRIAGE, which is between one man and one woman, the first comparison being that the word marriage means matrimony. The root word for matrimony is mater (mother) which most clearly means to make a mother or motherhood, something naturally impossible for two homosexuals to achieve, as well as two lesbians, or even Matt and Travis. Marriage has always been about what God, Who is immutable, planned for mankind, not man or his latest secular fashion fueled by the revolution of change for the sake of revolt against God.

Secondly, the procreative terrestrial trinity of love – THE FAMILY – is the visible earthly image and likeness of the Holy Trinity of God. Man is made of body and soul, and it is in the body, not of one person alone, but of the family – man/woman/child – that the Trinitarian image of God’s love is visibly reflected on earth. The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, binding in love one man and one woman, reflects the Holy Trinity because of married love and the procreative gift of man and woman. All else – man/man or woman/woman, Matt/Travis traveling their own path – is not the immutable image and likeness of God, but rather a mutable, ever changing and profane sterile image which procreates nothing and mocks God.

Moreover, the Holy Trinity is male – Father, Son, Holy Spirit – and the Church and the soul of each person are female, always referred to as “she”. The Holy Spirit, who erroneously some think is female, cannot be anything but male since the Blessed Virgin Mary is His Spouse. If the Holy Spirit were female, then the mystical marriage of Mary to the Holy Spirit would be a same-sex union and it would have been impossible for Jesus to have been conceived.

Lastly, the four Scriptural marriages are male-female images. In his Sermons, First Sunday after Epiphany, 20, St Thomas Aquinas says, “Holy Scripture speaks of four marriages. The first, in its historical and literal sense is the bodily union of man and woman; the second is allegorical – the union of Christ and His Church; the third is tropological or moral – the union of God with the soul; the fourth is anagogical or eschatological – the union of God with the Church Triumphant.

Therefore, it is determined that marriage originated in the mind of God, and always was, always is, and always will be male and female. Anything else is evil and immoral.

The false homosexual and lesbian “marriage” of the tyranny of lust, sanctioned and set into law by the secular world of man is a dangerous path to follow for it leads, not to God, but to the coiling back inside of itself, thereby once again giving birth to the original sin of the disobedience of man and its catastrophic consequences.
