Taiwan Becomes The First Country in Asia To Legalize Same-Sex Marriage

While so many godless ideas and persuasions are quickly becoming normalized and even protected by law here in the West, other countries in the developed world are just starting down this path. It’s truly a surreal thing to witness how much the world has changed in such a short period of time.

The people who saw the writing on the wall when the United States Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges enshrined same-sex marriage as a constitutional right are being proven right continually. Each news story about blical counseling being banned, the rights of others being superseded by “transgender rights”, or wicked people taking advantage of “inclusivity culture” to abuse children goes to show that our country has been on a sharp decline since that levee broke.

Other countries in the world apparently have not taken notice of the detrimental effects that have come from this egregious caselaw and are following in our path.

Taiwan has officially become the first country in Asia to ignore the natural design for marriage and legalize same-sex marriage.

LGBT Nation glowingly reports:

On May 24, 2017, Taiwan’s supreme court ruled that the country’s ban on same-sex marriage violated two parts of the constitution that protect basic human rights.

The court gave the government two years to amend or overturn the law to be in compliance with the ruling.

Now the legislature, faced with the deadline, passed legislation to allow marriages between same-sex couples.

Many of the conservative legislators in the government sharply opposed the bill along with a whopping 70 percent of the people of Taiwan. But, once their Supreme Court spoke, the law may as well have been etched into stone and any resistance would be futile.

Sound familiar?

The Taiwanese president, Tsai Ing-wen, praised the move as a “big step towards true equality” that “made Taiwan a better country”:

The bill, written by the Executive Yuan Council, the Taiwanese equivalent to the Cabinet, isn’t without some small saving graces, such as the limitation of adoption rights for same-sex couples. Though not fully satisfied, SSM advocates favored this iteration of the bill over competing versions that would have allowed for civil unions rather than legal marriages.

“The Executive Yuan’s version is already what we see as the ‘compromise bill’ and there must be no more compromises,” said Jennifer Lu, chief coordinator of Marriage Equality Coalition Taiwan, to the Central News Agency.

There must be no more compromises? What ominous words. My heart breaks for the Taiwanese people who are watching helplessly as their government ignores the vox populi just to earn progressive points.

Lord, come quickly.
