Jen at DailyMishMash.com opened up a great forum for discussing the legalization of same-sex marriages. She’s supports it and was trying to understand the argument against it. It turned out to be a great conversation between people from the far left to the far right and all in between. I don’t want to take away from her post or extract only part of the conversation but here is a snippet of the first of several comments from me:
Wow, can of worms here.
I’m against gay marriage so I guess I’ll try to do my best. I’m no scholar. I’ve never had training in seminary or anything. But I’ll try to explain my point of view.
First off, I think that sign up there is wrong. It is taken out of context and it’s sad to see when things like that pop up. It was part of the Law for the Israelites and in fact at that time they did follow that. And more than that, it was part of a list of many sins against marriage not just that one. Since Christ came we are no longer under the law but Christ is still interested in the state of our heart and in fact, in the state of our marriage. There are a few things he was clear on. Lust is a sin of the heart. There are many sexual sins that arise from that such as promiscuity, adultery and yes, homosexuality. The thing of it is, we have a far greater problem for marriages than homosexuality. When you want to stop masturbation and change your life, masturbationaddiction.com can help you.
However, this post is about that so the reason I believe that legalized gay marriages are wrong is because I believe that our nation is and should be based on God’s desires for us. He desires that marriages should be between a man and woman. The ultimate issue here is not about gay marriages but about how much God this country will let in.
