Gay Faux-Marriage Gone Global: Portugal Falls, Vatican Mum

Catholic Portugal Moves to Allow Gay Marriage

Portugal's parliament approved a measure Friday to legalize gay marriage, paving the way for the conservative Catholic nation to become the sixth in Europe to allow homosexuals to get married. The bill now goes back to a committee for review before a final vote. Then if the president signs it – as he's expected to do – Portugal's first gay wedding could take place around April.
Ironically, that's just weeks ahead of a planned visit from Pope Benedict XVI.
Gay rights campaigners applauded Friday from parliament's galleries and champagne corks sailed into the air outside. They sliced into a huge tiered wedding cake on parliament's steps, festooned with two bride dolls and two grooms. Dozens of rainbow flags fluttered in the chilly Atlantic breeze.
The Vatican has largely stayed out of the gay marriage debate in Portugal, with Lisbon's Cardinal Patriarch Jose Policarpo saying the issue is "parliament's responsibility."
Same-sex marriage is allowed in Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Canada and South Africa, as well as in five U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
re: two bride dolls...two grooms
The spiritual darkness descending across the globe is increasing daily as the Spirit of God continues to lift his restraint and turns the human race over to the depravity of their own hearts. As that happens, the spirit of this age, the spirit of antichrist, is flooding in to have his own way with the blinded and hardened masses of humanity. While the homosexual population is a relatively small percentage of the whole, nevertheless increasing numbers worldwide have been successfully conditioned to the point of sanctioning the homosexuals ungodly agenda - e.g. [quote from above article] "the Vatican has largely stayed out of the gay marriage debate in Portugal" - therein making themselves 'partakers' just the same.
compare: 12-21-09 Mexico City first 'city' in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage "...the fact that this ungodliness could spread across the globe as 'legal' behavior, as it is doing, is only possible because God Almighty, who is absolutely sovereign over all of His creation, has allowed it to so be. He has in fact passed judgment on the inhabitants of this world and due to the "lusts of their own hearts"....has 'given them up'". [see post]
Apart from the Spirit of God, which only will ever be found in the true 'body of Christ', none will withstand when in judgment the restraint is lifted by the Spirit of God, and the spirit of the age, the antichrist spirit, is loosed to have his way in the Christ rejecting world. This definitely includes all the false religious systems of mankind, including Catholicism and apostate Christendom. Tremendous inroads are being made into both. Rev. 18:4
compare: Pope Calls For Interfaith Unity 7-18-08
'And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.' Ephesians 5:11-12
