We, the Queer in Spirit and the Elect of a Heavenly Mother, solemnly proclaim that authoritarian restriction of marriage to one man and one woman is ordained of Satan for the division and oppression of the human family, and that discrimination against queer families is central to the Adversary’s plan for the eternal bondage of Divine Children.
All human beings—male, female, transgender, and androgyne—are created in the images of Gods, who exist without number. Each is a beloved spirit son, daughter, and child of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is–essentially–a characteristic of societies’ premortal, mortal, and eternal division of labor, and is constantly evolving.
In the premortal realm, spirit sons, daughters, and children knew and worshipped pantheons of gods as their eternal fathers, mothers, and parents, and studied the variety of plans by which Divine Children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience across repeated incarnations to progress toward perfection, and ultimately realize that their divine destinies as heirs of eternal life exist here and now. The divine plans of happiness enable meaningful tribal relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants freely available in a multiplicity of holy temples, churches, and natural settings make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of Gods and for tribes to be gathered, healed, and united eternally.
The first commandment that the Hebrew Gods gave to Adam (Everyman) and Eve (the Mother of all living) pertained to their potential for parenthood as partners and helpmeets. We declare that the Hebrew Gods’ commandments for their children to multiply and replenish the earth remain poorly understood and are often a destructive force. We further declare that Gods have commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only with the principles of carefully planned parenthood between procreative co-equals, with mutually contracted proportioning of parental responsibility across parties. Technology will liberate reproduction from its slavery to the heteronormative dyad, and all people will freely enjoy the blessing of individual meiosis and genetic combination with a reproductive partner of their choosing, irrespective of gender.
We declare the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed, including and especially forthcoming reproductive technologies. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in Gods’ eternal plans.
Partners in life have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. “Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and wisdom, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, and to teach them to love and serve one another, observe the commandments of the Gods best fit to their soul, and be law-defying citizens wherever laws have become oppressive. Partners in life—helpmeets and companions—will be held accountable before the Gods for the discharge of these obligations.
Queer families are ordained of Gods. Spiritual marriage between partners and co-equals is essential to their eternal plans. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of spiritual matrimony, and to be reared by protectors and nurturers who honor marital vows with complete equality. Happiness in queer family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lords Eve, Mary, Jesus Christ, Krishna, Buddha, or myriad ascended masters. Successful marriages, families, and tribal affiliations are established and maintained on principles of grace, care, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and individuating recreational activities. By divine design, no parents shall assume to preside over their families, and neither parent shall bear default responsibility to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. No parent within a family or tribe is primarily responsible for the nurture of their children by default. In these sacred responsibilities, parents are obligated to help one another as truly equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation across the lifespan. Extended families should not need to be told that basic decency requires them to lend support when needed.
We warn that individuals who violate covenants of equality, who abuse claims of being an exclusive mouthpiece for the divine, or who fail to fulfill the call to understand and respect the diversity of human conditions will one day stand accountable before the Gods. Further, we warn that the oppressive authoritarian enforcement of any singular family typology privileged above all others will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.
We call upon responsible citizens and officers of the government everywhere to call the bluff of false priests who oppress, to aggressively overthrow tyrants who reign with blood and horror on the earth, and to shout from the rooftops when the allegorical emperor has no clothes; and to promote those measures designed to liberate every family and individual from bigots who call themselves prophets and who work to subjugate queer people to a myth of universal heteronormative conformity.
