Too many people say to be in love with someone of the same sex is a sin and now to want the rights to live united under the bonds of matrimony is even a huger sin.
My thoughts are if a same sex couple want to unite in a same sex marriage for the rest of their lives, then let them.
Maybe allowing people the right to marry someone of the same sex is upsetting to you but how would you feel if our culture believed in say arranged marriage and you were forced to marry someone you didn’t love. Is it really fair for us to force the gay community to be with someone they do not want to be with.
Question your child says mom and dad, I’m love with someone of the same sex. If a gay person accepts Jesus, but does not change his lifestyle, can he go to heaven?
That is the sin of not believing and not receiving Jesus Christ into your life. God is the only one who truly knows our hearts. Some have reason that a child in a same sex marriage might be teased.But that same reasoning you would be outlawing inter-racial marriage because the child might be teased or let’s outlaw people with disabilities from getting married.
People said the same thing when we allowed blacks the same rights as whites, or when we allowed women the right to vote, or when we allowed blacks and whites to marry each other. People went off about society.
In the interest of fair play with the people who do not believe that homosexuals should be granted the right, that is your right to think that. If sex without the possibility of creating life is wrong, then you better start warning people about masturbation.
I’ am sickened by the sheer volumes of people on this earth that seem to believe it’s their duty to correct the gay community on their lifestyle. Gay people are still human, and homophobes need to find a healthy hobby, instead of bashing things they are threatened by or don’t understand.
Marriage is really about forming a permanent bond with someone that you love deeply and want to spend the rest of your life with, as well as create your own family with. Being homosexual It’s not an anomaly or some freakish disease that they can take pills for, it’s natural. Not everyone is the same, this is evident in skin colors and physical appearances I think same sex marriages should be allowed – they are human beings after all and deserve just as much respect as anyone else – basic human rights!
We must accept that people are who they are, and we shouldn’t exclude them from anything – including the right to live happily married together. No one has to agree with it but him or her.
Why do so many people feel the need to stick their noses where they obviously don’t belong? I am not gay, but I couldn’t care less if someone else is. I say hell let them get married.
Actually it’s not so much God as it is all God’s followers who use the Bible as an excuse to condemn homosexuality. Why do some people feel that they must do the hating for Him? While is it he preaches love and forgiveness and some of his followers preach gay bashing and intimidation.
The people who get me are the ones who slam gays as sinners but have engaged in rampant pre-marital sex, something the bible also clearly frowns upon. According to the bible any sexual relationship outside of a committed marriage relationship between one man and one woman demeans the institution of marriage and is a sin.
What about Divorce Many Roman Catholics have reached different beliefs about when, if ever, the Bible permits divorce and remarriage. According to the Bible, 43% of the same people who condemn a gay man for his homosexuality choose to live in a life of adultery, a sin that’s equal to homosexuality in God’s eyes. We are not ruled by the bible last I looked.
I know gays and lesbians that have been good and faithful parents. I believe people should have all of the legal rights possible and if that means we call it a marriage then so be it.
If two committed partners want to legally formalize their relationship, why should the Government prevent them from joining, even if no church will marry them. We allow atheists to get married and they certainly don’t go in for the whole religious ceremony.
