The Lawful Definition of Marriage in the Dominion of Canada


"Canada became the fourth country in the world and the first country in the Americas to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide with the enactment of the Civil Marriage Act. Court decisions, starting in 2003, each already legalized same-sex marriage ...", according to Wikipedia in this article.

Neither Canadian judges nor Canadian Members of Parliament are the lawful ultimate authority on the lawful definition of marriage in the Dominion of Canada.

The "Constitution of Canada" is claimed to be the "supreme law of Canada" and states that "...Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law...". God is the ultimate legislative authority on the lawful definition of marriage in the Dominion of Canada.  The laws of God are supreme in the Dominion of Canada.

The following three quotes from the coronation of Elizabeth II provide information and insight on the meaning of the phrase "supremacy of God".

"And as Solomon was anointed king
by Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet,
so be thou anointed, blessed, and consecrated Queen
over the Peoples, whom the Lord thy God
hath given thee to rule and govern,
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Amen"

"...that by the assistance of his heavenly grace
you may govern and preserve
the Peoples committed to your charge..."

"The Lord who hath made you Queen over these Peoples..."

With "God" in "supremacy of God" referred to by "the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" the "rule of law" includes the rule of New Testament Christian law. During the coronation, Elizabeth II promised to the utmost of her power to maintain the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel.  These laws of God are found in the New Testament King James Bible which was referred to at her coronation as "the most valuable thing that this world affords".

The word "Peoples" in the above three quotes refers to both Christians and non-Christians; New Testament Christian law applies to both Christians and non-Christians.

Elizabeth II was referred to as a servant of the King eternal Jesus Christ. Anne Cools stated in a speech: "Honourable Senators, I rise to honour the 47th Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne. My theme for this speech will be 'The Leader as Servant, Public Service, the Queen and Christ the King.'" .... "Queen Elizabeth II has lived, to the best of her ability, the high concepts of public service in Christ the King. She is a great woman, a great Queen and a great servant. God Bless the Queen!".

The laws of God are that marriage is honourable in all (Hebrews 13:4) whereas certain same-sex relationships (Romans 1:26-27) are not honourable.

Certain dishonourable same-sex relationships (Romans 1:26-27) do not have equality with honourable marriages (Hebrews 13:4).

Also, the laws of God are "he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife" and "she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband" (1 Corinthians 7:33-34).

Anyone who believes in so-called "same-sex marriage" disagrees with 1 Corinthians 7:33-34.

According to anyone who believes in so-called "same-sex marriage", "he that is married" does not necessarily "careth for ... how he may please his wife" because "he that is married" does not necessarily have a wife.


Also according to anyone who believes in so-called "same-sex marriage", "she that is married" does not necessarily "careth for ... how she may please her husband" because "she that is married" does not necessarily have a husband.


Anyone, who advocates for so-called "same-sex marriage", advocates against
1 Corinthians 7:33-34. Anyone, who claims that any two people of the same sex are married, claims that 1 Corinthians 7:33-34 is wrong.

A lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).

The so-called "Supreme Court of Canada" and several other Canadian courts have already previously lost credibility in this matter.

For example, this June 10, 2003 "Court of Appeal for Ontario" document repeats the false claim made by the so-called "Supreme Court of Canada", in Egan v. Canada [1995], that:

"Sexual orientation is a deeply personal characteristic that is either unchangeable or changeable only at unacceptable personal costs, and so falls within the ambit of s. 15 protection as being analogous to the enumerated grounds".

So long as at least one person’s sexual orientation is changeable at acceptable personal costs, the claim made by the so-called "Supreme Court of Canada" is false.  Numerous testimonies of people who are no longer homosexual, whose sexual orientations have changed at acceptable personal costs, have discredited this false claim made by Canadian courts.  Sexual orientation can be changeable at a personal cost that is very acceptable.  Also, religion can be changeable at acceptable personal costs, and religion is listed in Section 15(1).

Some of the testimonies of  people who are no longer homosexual, whose sexual orientations have changed at acceptable personal costs, and that have discredited the false claim made and repeated by several provincial courts, can be found at the following webpages:

http://lifesite.net/ldn/2003/may/03052304.html
"Rev. Foster spoke of homosexuality as an 'assumed identity'. He noted: 'I'm just as black as the day I was born, but I'm no longer homosexual. You can't deny that. ...' ";

http://capalert.com/blatantmediabias.htm

"During the interview, Irene and I powerfully shared how I WAS 'gay' -- and now how I am no longer homosexual. We told the interviewer how I lived the 'gay' lifestyle for over eleven years, sexually active withover 100 male partners -- many whom are dead today from AIDS. We told her how I walked away from it all in 1992 -- never to return again -- and how I DO NOT struggle with homosexuality whatsoever." ...
"Stephen Bennett, Stephen Bennett Ministries, www.SBMinistries.org "; and,

"I was a brand new man, a new creation without a past (2 Cor. 5:17). I was no longer a homosexual! (1 Cor. 6:9-11)".

Additional testimonies of people who are no longer homosexual are available at http://peoplecanchange.com/stories/index.php and http://exodusinternational.org/resources/real-stories .

On the basis of their false claim so-called "Supreme Court of Canada" judges claimed to have read in "sexual orientation" to Section 15 of the "Charter". The "Charter" does not refer to "sexual orientation".

Rather than trying to change the lawful definition of marriage in the Dominion of Canada, or rather than needing to use the Section 33 "notwithstanding" clause, what is needed is to restore credibility to the so-called "Supreme Court of Canada" and to several other Canadian courts.

According to the "Court of Appeal for Ontario", "It is clear that a law that has a discriminatory purpose cannot survive s.15(1) scrutiny".

The phrase "without discrimination" in Section 15(1) of the "Charter" refers back to "every individual", not to "the law".

Section 15(1) states: "Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability."

The law can, should, and does morally discriminate.  For example, male-only and female-only washroom laws morally discriminate on the basis of sex.  Male-only and female-only schools, jobs, teams, clubs, areas, accommodations, etc. discriminate based on sex.  Birth certificates discriminate based on sex.  Sex-based insurance rates discriminate based on sex.  Age-based insurance rates discriminate based on age.  Age-of-consent laws discriminate based on age.  Voting-age laws discriminate based on age.  Lawful definitions for words morally discriminate on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age and mental or physical disability. An adult male does not have the right to be a woman. An adult female does not have the right to be a man.

Every individual (without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age or mental or physical disability) is equal before and under the law (which can morally discriminate) and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law (which can morally discriminate).

Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law.

Every individual is equal before and under the existing opposite-sex-definition marriage law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the existing opposite-sex-definition marriage law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age or mental or physical disability.

For a six-year-old, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).  For a sixty-year-old, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).

For a female, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).  For a male, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).

For someone with homosexual preferences, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).  For someone with heterosexual preferences, a lawful marriage in the Dominion of Canada is limited to a relationship exclusively between a man (the husband) and a woman (the wife).

The existing constitutional opposite-sex definition of marriage applies equally to every individual in the Dominion of Canada no matter what his or her sexual orientation is.

Every individual is equal before and under the law that "he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife" and the law that "she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband".

Every individual has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law that "he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife" and of the law that "she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband".

These marriage laws from 1 Corinthians 7:33-34 come complete with the rest of the New Testament Christian law.

Every individual is equal before and under New Testament Christian law.

Every individual has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of New Testament Christian law.
