Webster's Dictionary Adds Homosexual 'Unions' To Marriage Definition

Dictionary Redefines 'Marriage' to Include Same-Sex Couples

Similar to the definition of marriage under federal law, Merriam-Webster states marriage as "the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law." Every state in the nation recognizes marriage on similar terms except for Connecticut and Massachusetts.

But the dictionary runs askew from legal recognition of marriage by the federal government and almost all the states by tacking on a secondary definition that counts unions between same-sex couples as "marriage."

The change went unnoticed until WorldNetDaily recently reported (
here) on a YouTube video calling attention to the marriage "redefinition."

The controversy over gay marriage is expected to heat up once again since the Obama administration has said it will seek the full repeal of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a union between a man and woman for all purposes of federal law and protects states from being forced to recognized (sic) same-sex marriages from other states. see: Homosexual Agenda Finds A Home In New White House 1-21-09
Manipulating society through redefinition of the language
Without question, Noah Webster would take great exception to the use of his name to facilitate the redefining of the English language in order to support the ungodly homosexual agenda, as evidenced from this quote taken verbatim from his original masterful work, 'An American Dictionary of the English Language', first published in 1828:

Webster's original 1828 dictionary:
"MAR'RIAGE, n. [L.mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.
Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled. Heb.13.
1. A feast made on the occasion of a marriage.
The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage for his son. Matt.22.
2. In a scriptural sense, the union between Christ and his church by the covenant of grace. Rev.19."
As shown, Noah Webster's original definition of marriage compared with the promoter's new version still bearing his name is as far apart as the east is from the west. This redefining of language to attack foundational truths is a terrible sign of, and gives a sense of the scope of, the absolute lost condition and blindness that has overtaken society in 2009. Regardless of what any may say, at this point the condition is irretrievable, it can only be judged (see: reprobate 9-27-08). Come out of her my people. Rev. 18:4
Legalization of homosexual faux-marriage, among other things, is designed to give the homosexual agenda-ites unrestricted proselytizing access to even the youngest of impressionable children. The agenda is comprehensive and includes tampering with the English language. Be aware, protect your children.

Matt. 19:4 'And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh'

The revision was made because now there exists such marriages between two people of the same gender. No approval is indicated, just a statement of fact.

Approval or disapproval was not an issue. It just is....and that's the issue. Society today has drifted into an abominable state of ungodliness. God will judge. We know that...He tells us...and also has given us historical examples of previous judgements.

The very fact that the redefinition has appeared in print in the new dictionary is an implied approval, and an obvious attempt to manipulate the public mindset to accept the homosexual 'faux-marriage' agenda.

That's a very big thing, but it is not the point. The point is that the unholy union of same sex-ers, is not now nor ever will be be 'marriage', no matter how badly the language is mangled to try and legitimize it.

That's just the way it is, whether anybody likes it or not...

...thus saith "he which made them...male and female"
