Do you agree with President Obama's support of gay marriage?
Truth, and even opinion, is no better than the source of that truth or opinion. Hoping something to be true, feeling good about an opinion, or jumping on a bandwagon, or polling does not create truth. The study of the source of knowledge is called epistemology. Some people arrive at truth through Bible, some through composite opinion, some through centuries of societal mores, but truth is always aligned with reason. Some believe truth is releative to each individual making each individual a god. On this topic, here are some reasons to consider:
1.Homosexuals are seeking a special right. They already have the same right to marry the rest of us have-the right to marry a person of the opposite sex. Limiting marriage to one man and one woman doesn’t discriminate on the basis of sex or sexual orientation.
2.It denies the self-evident truth of nature that male and female bodies are designed for and complement each other. Opposite-sex marriage is the natural means by which the human race reproduces.
3.Granting same-sex couples a license to marry will not create true marriage. Neither two men nor two women can become one flesh. Licensing the unnatural does not make it natural. It would be a state-sanctioned counterfeit, a sham and a fraud. A licensed electrician cannot produce power by taping two same-sex plugs together. Homosexual sex is dangerous and destructive to the human body and powerless for human reproduction.
4.Homosexual marriage will always be an abomination to God regardless of whether a clergyman performs the ceremony. When God calls something unholy, man cannot make it holy or bless it.
5.Homosexual marriage is as wrong as giving a man a license to marry his mother or daughter or sister or a group.
6.Homosexual marriage will harm children by denying them the love and nurture of a mom and dad. The only “procreation” homosexuals can engage in requires that a third party must be brought into the relationship.
7.Granting a marriage license to homosexuals because they engage in sex is as illogical as granting a medical license to a barber because he wears a white coat or a law license to a salesman because he carries a briefcase. Real doctors, lawyers and the public would suffer as a result of licensing the unqualified and granting them rights, benefits and responsibilities as if they were qualified.
8.Homosexual marriage will devalue your marriage. A license to marry is a legal document by which government will treat same-sex marriage as if it were equal to the real thing. A license speaks for the government and will tell society that government says the marriages are equal. Any time a lesser thing is made equal to a greater, the greater is devalued. For example:
•If the Smithsonian Museum displays a hunk of polished blue glass next to the Hope Diamond with a sign that says, “These are of equal value,” and treats them as if they were, the Hope Diamond is devalued in the public’s eye. The government says it’s just expensive blue glass. The history and mystery are lost too.
•If an employer uses a robot as an employee and treats the robot the same way it treats human employees, human employees are devalued. By doing so, the employer says, “A robot can do your job, you’re no better.” What will you and the public think of your job and you?
•If the government issues a license to babysitters that grants them the same rights, protections and responsibilities as a child’s parents, parenthood is devalued. The government says parents are just babysitters.
•If government grants professional licenses to just anybody, every profession and qualified professional is devalued. The government says an uneducated panhandler can do brain surgery.
9.The assumption by many is that marriage is just two people with a license who have sex and wear rings. Homosexuals do that?why not give them the license? Engaging in sex doesn’t equal marriage. Adults involved in incest have sex too; should government call it marriage and license them? Certainly not.
10.The biggest problem we have in getting people, especially younger ones, to understand why marriage is devalued by the existence of a counterfeit is that much of the public does not value marriage at all. Adultery is no big deal. No- fault divorce is tolerated. Absentee fathers and mothers devalue marriage. Unmarried pregnancies are common. Fornication is “normal.” When we make the case against homosexual marriage, we need to speak against these other problems that devalue marriage too. As we acknowledge these problems we can emphasize that legalizing homosexual marriage will compound the problems, not solve or lessen them.
It’s really sad for you that somebody else’s marriage will devalue yours.
Y’all are Nothing but a bunch of homophobic bible thumping fascists.
“bunch of homophobic bible thumping fascists” Now, come on…..you know deep down that isn’t true…. It’s just easier to throw out when you have nothing else to support your belief / view(s). 1 woman + 1 man = natural balance
people like you and obama are the down fall of this country ! we will take it back in 2012 !!! he is a one time looser.
if GOD intened for a man to marry another man, God would have created Adam and Steve instead of Adam and Eve.,.just my thoughts
Get an original thought.
Christians are said to be “shoving their morals on everyone else?” But pray tell, if a moral practice has been in place for thousands of years and a small group, say 2%, want to force a change, tell me again who is forcing their moral values on others?
Liberals are going crazy over the homophobic discrimination against gays. What about the “discrimination” against those who prefer polygamy? What about the “discrimination” against adults who are sexually attracted to 17-year-olds? 16-year-olds? 15-year-olds? What about the “discrimination” against those who are sexually attracted to their adult sibling? What about the “discrimination” against those who are sexually attracted to their adult son or daughter? What about the “discrimination” against those who (insert sexual perversion here)? The truth is, the sexual desires a person learns via indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse does not make them a people group. And if you don’t allow ALL sexual variant behavior, you’re being a hypocrite while claiming morality only when it suits you, denying some sexual behaviors, while condemning others who stand up against ones you prefer. Who gives anyone the authority, after billions of people and many thousand years of marriage between a man and a woman to step out and say, “This behavior is normal, but all these other behaviors are perversions?” And then you have hypocrites who condemn some behaviors on moral/psychological grounds while condoning others for doing the same where homosexuality is concerned. That is hypocrisy at it’s finest! Watch how they continue to demonstrate their hypocrisy by attacking others who point to moral/psychological reasons to rebuke homosexuality and turn around to attack all other sexual perversions on the exact same grounds. What a tangled web we weave when we break with universally accepted traditions of the family! What a person does in the privacy of their home is nobody’s business but theirs. But when they demand that we condone their behavior, it is an imposition they have no right to.
And, for those who attempt to use the Bible as their justification, check out:
he is just fishing for votes.
but iv’e read a couple of stories about him.
Adam and Eve
Not Adam and Steve
