We have discussed the connection of Habakkuk 2 to the issue on sodomy in the US, in the previous article. How about its connection to the US Constitution?
To refresh, Habakkuk 2:4,7-8, is hereto re-stated:
4And this is the message: “Those who are evil will not survive, but those who are righteous will live because they are faithful to God.’ ” x x x 7 But before you know it, you that have conquered others will be in debt yourselves and be forced to pay interest. Enemies will come and make you tremble. They will plunder you! 8 You have plundered the people of many nations, but now those who have survived will plunder you because of the murders you have committed and because of your violence against the people of the world and its cities. (Habakkuk 2:4, 7-8,TEV)
The proposition is: Habakkuk 2:4-8 refers to the judgment of United States of America. In other words, judgment had already been rendered even before USA was dreamed of to be established. Consequently, USA has nothing to brag being the only superpower in the world today. Nor anybody could claim any superiority on what will happen to USA because the people who will plunder it are only permitted to do so, due to the violence it had created against the people of the world and its cities.
On deeper analysis, the judgment was rendered not based on the wishes of the One who had rendered it but based on the failure to follow the rules promulgated by the Creator, which judgment was already accepted as truth by the One who spoke. Accordingly, USA should accept it also as the truth and nothing can be changed. When there is judgment, what ordinarily follows is the execution of judgement.
In brief, the judgment is anchored on common denominator for the previously listed next Sodom and Gomorrah, which is sodomy. The same having been logically established in the previous discussions as directly related to the prohibition “eating meat with blood still in it”.
That is the proposition.
The other verses in Habakkuk 2, which, by way of a proposition-being referred as “words” of judgement for other nations, will be discussed later in this site.
What is then the relationship of the US Constitution to Habakkuk 2?
Before, USA seems to stand righteous before the legalization of same-sex marriage. But there are thirteen states now helping each other in attaining the status of having meet the requirements before the judgment in Habakkuk 2 is executed. Wikipedia lists them as follows: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.Are they the lucky thirteen? District of Columbia, several counties in New Mexico, and six Native American tribal jurisdictions have also legalized issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
The movement for US Sodomy started in 1970s but became potent in 1993 due to Hawaii Supreme Court’s ruling that the prohibition on same sex marriage is unconstitutional. Wikipedia, together with its sources, report:
“While several jurisdictions have legalized same-sex civil marriage through court rulings, legislative action, and popular vote, six states prohibit same-sex civil marriage by statute and 29 prohibit it in their constitutions. The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), enacted in 1996, allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed under the laws of other states. Section 3 of DOMA prevented the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages until that provision was ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court on June 26, 2013, in United States v. Windsor.
The movement to obtain marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples in the United States began in the 1970s, but became more prominent in U.S. politics in 1993 when the Hawaii Supreme Court declared the state’s prohibition to be unconstitutional in Baehr v. Lewin. During the 21st century, public support for same-sex civil marriage has grown considerably,and national polls conducted since 2011 show that its legalization is supported by a majority of Americans. On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to publicly declare support for the legalization of same-sex civil marriage. On November 6, 2012, Maine, Maryland, and Washington became the first states to legalize same-sex civil marriage through popular vote”.
The legality of US sodomy is affirmed by the US Supreme Court, its prohibition having been declared unconstitutional, invoking the US Federal Constitution. The US President, invoking legally the same constitution, being a lawyer himself, duly seconded it and publicly declared his support.
You may ask: What is then the materiality of Habakkuk 2 to the unconstitutionality of sodomy? The answer is: The US Federal constitution is indeed “pro-HABAKKUKational“-that is, it had argued for, decided, agreed, waited and vigorously invited for “judgment” to come.
