It does not matter whether one knows God or not....

God, who created mankind is the one who created, ordained and sets the standard for God's institution of marriage. Marriage was created by God and belongs to God. Our personal opinions, preferences, or official judicial rulings concerning the issue doesn't mean a hill of beans to God since God answers to no one and it will be we who answer to Him.
Mankind in his pride and arrogance tends to forget who is in charge....and it ain't us!
We have decided to permit this unnatural view of human sexuality and marriage in our culture, and we will have to deal with the consequences.
In ancient cultures and societies that openly permitted homosexuality, we also find the practices of infanticide and sexual abuse of children. Often, we also find polygamy, harems, prostitution.... signs that women are viewed as possessions and property, rather than free persons.
Not that any one of these causes the other, but it seems that these are all caused by some root cause -- a failure to understand the value and natural purpose of sex and marriage.
Our culture has homosexuality and infanticide, legal and openly tolerated. We also have a growing problem of child sexual abuse, although this is not yet legal or tolerated by the culture. But we do encourage sexualization of children at younger ages, through our schools and the entertainment media, so we are headed that way. And it seems like women are also being treated and traded like property, a thing to be purchased when wanted and discarded when unwanted.
