I don't understand why people are so against gay marriage!! Just Bc they are gay doesn't mean they aren't people and I feel they should have the same rights as everyone else. Why should they not get to feel the joy of walking down the isle and saying I do?! Its not hurting anyone else! I'm a straight woman and I have raised my children that they treat everyone the same. I want my children to grow up and be the loving people that they are now. Not someone that hates others Bc they are different then them in any way.

If you have raised children then likely you are indeed understand why people are against permitting homosexual unions in state and federal law.

Not all of us are unloving, no in fact, it is a loving God who has set forth His Word that we are to follow as best as we can even when "popular" culture is screaming what is and is not fair. This applies to many areas of life in our free republic.

God is many things far more than our minds can comprehend while we are in mortal bodies, but one thing, or one Person He Is first and foremost to us is Our Father. He is not a man that He should lie. He has instructed all people to turn to Him for help in combating the weakness of our flesh.

It is unloving for God to then turn around and bless that which He has clearly shown in Word and in deed to be unhealthy, immoral, and yes, an abomination. You would not be wise to then go against God, teach your children to love and accept equally in marriage the homosexual union.

Behaviors, attitudes and teachings that seem right unto a man are wrong to God, such as sex outside of heterosexual marriage. Loving is God to set standards, give law and keep that law clear to us. Man deceives himself to usurp God and deny His righteousness. A stubborn and willful person be they man, woman or child will have that streak broken again and again throughout their lives. This is a natural consequence to living outside of God's will.

God hates divorce, and what is the reason? The two have come together to be one flesh, they make promises to move forward as husband and wife. The earth is covered with the seed of that union, and better is it to have male and female blessed in His sight. The promises of God cannot be broken by the popular culture. Even today we see the signs of the times He revealed in His Word.

There is no fruit from the union of same sex practitioners. The point is obvious. Do not be naive and had down to your children the lies of the devil. We do not hate people, we hate the abomination they commit. And that abomination is hurting plenty of people.

May the Lord reveal His Justice, His Mercy, His Righteousness to you and yours. Amen

Perhaps you should read back a few pages on here, or check some other sites.

However, it amazes me that you don't see the difference between your mom and dad and a sterile duplicated half of marriage and family. You really think those two relationships are the exact same? Seriously???

SMile.

Your religion is irrelevant to a matter of law.

Do you have any valid arguments to make?

Seriously? That's the silliest sentence I've had the pleasure to read in months. I'm thankful that God didn't bless you with any gay babies.

The Bible doesn't speak of homosexuality very often, but when it does, it condemns it as sin. Let's take a look.

Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."1
Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them"
1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Rom. 1:26-28, "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper."

Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible. It undermines the basis of God's created order where God made Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman -- not two men, not two women -- to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Gen. 1:28). Homosexuality cannot carry out that command. It also undermines the basic family unit of husband and wife, the God-ordained means of procreation. It is also dangerous to society.(Se
