(CNN) The U.S. Supreme Court decided Friday it will tackle the issue of whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, or whether states are allowed to ban gay marriage.It will happen. Oh it will. Not the court case, rather, gay marriage will be approved. This immoral snowball has gained so much speed and so much mass it is unstoppable!

(Bloomberg Businessweek) The Five Things You Need to Know About the Supreme Court’s Gay-Marriage Case
So I take it as a "given". When a nation has turned from God as we have, this sort of thing is inevitable. But my question is "What's next?"
You see, the practice of our faith in this country is protected by the US Constitution. It is! Here is the complete wording:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.But if you look for anything in the US Constitution which guarantees the right of gays to marry you will currently find....nothing.
Yet, how many times have you heard it said "...but it is my constitutional right to marry..." and then they go on to cite the "equal protection" clause of the 14th Amendment.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but the equal protection clause is not intended to provide "equality" among individuals or classes but only "equal application" of the laws. So to shout "equal protection" as if there is a law protecting your immorality, you would be wrong. Ironically, this is not unlike gun advocates who cite the 2nd Amendment as their "right" to own an AK-47, without realizing that the 2nd Amendment provides no such protection. But I digress.
So let me get to the root of the problem.
The US Supreme Court will approve "gay marriage". This I can say with some degree of confidence. But under whose authority will they argue this? Well, clearly they will argue their own authority! Man's! The problem is, we can have as many "men" (or women) on the Supreme Court as we see fit, so all we really need to do is arrange the Supreme Court to our liking and we can get the "rulings" we want! This is true!
The U.S. Constitution established the Supreme Court. It left it to Congress to decide how many justices it should maintain. The Judiciary Act of 1789 set the number at six. In 1807, Congress increased the number of justices to seven. In 1837, the number was increased to nine; and in 1863, it rose to ten! In 1866, Congress passed the Judicial Circuits Act, which restored the number to seven and prevented President Andrew Johnson from appointing anyone new to the court. But... Three years later, in 1869, Congress raised the number of justices to nine, where it today remains.
So the issue of gay marriage for the entire country will be determined by "9" people who have "our authority" to decide! How fortunate for the gays that 9 will decide! Maybe 7 would rule differently! Maybe it should be 15!
And therein lies the problem.
A random nine humans from all of humanity will decide EVERYONE's position on the "right" of gays to marry. Notice, there is nothing in the Justice's charter to refer to any higher authority. The authority is theirs and theirs alone.
We gave them that authority. We did. Just like we did in 1962 when we allowed the Supreme Court to remove a higher authority from our schools and simple prayer was banned. We know the true authority, but we have decided instead to give all authority to nine humans. Good thing for gays, bad thing for the US.
So let's look beyond what we know is coming. When gay marriage is approved, we can expect a very, very bad result. I cannot say "what", as I an no prophet. But read Deuteronomy 28:15, then keep reading.
"Yep, son, we have met the enemy and he is us". (Pogo, 1971)
