Same Sex Marriage

I usually avoid this topic, but it shouldn't be avoided. It is important for me in my faith to share the truth.
I'm not homophobic at all, I certainly don't run away when a homosexual approaches me, but Same Sex Marriage is not ok, it is sin.  I have believed for a long time that the different acts of  sin aren't equal e.g Murder is worse than stealing.... but sin itself is equal, because all sin separates us from our Father. I know very well that I sin as much as homosexuals are sinning, I am no better. Just because my sin is different, doesn't make me any better... I just wanted to make that clear first... but I am completely against same sex marriage. For me to tell you that I'm against this sin as much as every other, it is important for me to also tell you why I believe and why God knows, that those sins are wrong. I might get to them another day, but in this day and time, I feel as though I should talk about this particular sin, and the many reasons to why I disagree with it.

Reason 1: When God created man and women, He didn't say "You may go and marry anyone you like, it doesn't matter if they are the same sex as you"... No, He chose man and woman to love each other. When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, Sin came into existence. Homosexuality wasn't around until sin came into existence, therefore it is a sin.The reason why this is a sin, is because God knows what is best for us. Even though we might not be able to see why homosexuality is harmful, God does, and He desperately wants what is best for us. I might also add that animals don't mate with/try to woo the same sex.... and our unmentionables only fit with those of the opposite sex! :)

Reason 2: Marriage is a unique relationship between one man and one woman. Marriage is something to take VERY seriously. Leaving, cleaving and becoming one flesh (Gen 2:24), is an incredibly important guide to having a Godly, stable marriage.

Reason 3: Marriage is also the foundation of family, which in turn is the foundation of society.

Reason 4: If marriage can be redefined to include two people of the same gender, why not three or more people? I doubt that it will ever happen, and I sure hope that it never happens. The Australian government talks about legalising same sex marriage as being a freedom thing, but what about this case? Will they legalize it, will they legalize other cases like this?

Reason 5: Marriage is deeply held by a large proportion of the population for cultural and religious reasons and this should be respected. Redefining marriage has potential serious consequences for religious freedom and freedom of conscience.

Reason 6:  What about the children? Same-sex marriage sets up a new family model that trashes the truth that gender is vital to a child in family formation. Research shows that a child with married, biological mother and father do best.... Children should be given the chance to start life with both their biological parents.

 I'm sure that I could think of more reasons... but do you see why it is important not to allow same sex marriage to happen? I deeply hope that if you were for same sex marriage, this helped you understand that it is damaging and sinful. We should be preventing sin, not allowing it!

God bless
Love, E.

p.s. I can't say that I would like to argue with you about this, but if you have questions... please comment!

Hello Elissa

I am a gay man and happily married to my partner in New York. May I ask just some small questions for you? (You can ignore them if you want to!)Same sex marriage is getting approved everywhere as we speak and I bet your country will aknowledge it soon in the upcoming years. My questions..

1) Do you know that same sex marriage have the same rights as any human being in this planet?

2) What makes you against it other than what you wrote all above? Does it offend you at some point?

3)I bet you have some gay friends as well.. why not ask them on what do they really think about the whole thing

I'm a bit dissapointed to be honest and I thought some parts of the world could be more tolerant about this issue it matters to me so much but I guess I was wrong
