Really? I don’t see it. If they aren’t humans then what planet are they from?
I heard this argument from someone supporting a certain candidate for President recently, “Well, you just have to vote for Obama because he at least treats gay people like humans, unlike Romney.” Seriously? I could cite MANY examples of how Romney treats people like humans regardless of their sexual preferences. Whether or not Romney is willing to seek to redefine God’s laws has nothing to do with how he treats anybody, gay or otherwise.
What is with this ridiculously extreme idea that people who do not support gay marriage are evil, heartless, and out to trample on the rights of others. I do not support gay marriage. I do support gay people. It’s not that hard really. Christ supported many people that were not living God’s laws. He still does. He also did not ever redefine or casually brush off any of God’s laws while in support of said people. He never will.
How did this become about a civil right? Why do we need a redefining on something that has been defined since God put man and woman on the earth? I am not being facetious here. I really don’t get all the hoopla. It seems simple to me; man + woman = marriage. How do sexual preferences/choices define a minority group? I won’t ask you what you do in your bedroom and you don’t ask me what I do in mine.
I am not saying that all people shouldn’t be treated with civility and respect. I am just completely dumbfounded as to how this has anything at all to do with social freedoms and equalities. I don’t buy the sob stories either. Not because I am not compassionate, but because I understand that anything can happen to anyone at anytime. If a person chooses to live in such a way that they might need legal standing in particular circumstances, then do something about it. Lawyers are a dime a dozen these days. Get one. Have an agreement drawn up. It is that easy.
It is a slippery slope we play on when we seek to redefine the laws of God. I do not understand the logic or reasoning behind the statements of people that profess to believe in God and are then adamant that people who choose to be with members of the same gender should be afforded the “right” to marry one another. Isn’t marriage ordained of God? Hasn’t he defined it already? Shouldn’t He have the last word? I suppose He will. I wonder what we will allow His laws, and this country, to suffer until then.
Can you believe in God and support gay marriage? Do you have to support gay marriage in order to treat a person with civility and respect? We are all humans. We were all put here by God. We are all subject to His laws, whether we agree with them or not.
And then there’s the glaringly obvious; is this really the most important issue for our country right now? I can think of SO many other things that are much more important to consider when deciding how to cast ones vote.
