I have been told over and over again that the reason why the "Religious Right" are against Same Sex Marriage, is because it is a sin. Whereas I have said numerous times in previous posts that Bible research does not support this,
I wish to indulge those who still believe that homosexuality is a sin and ask them the following: Why do you take such a strong stance against homosexuality and not against the abominations that the Bible names?
The Bible talks a lot about adultery, yet, Newt Gingrich can make a serious run for the Presidency. The Bible talks about a "Proud Look" being an abomination, yet, Donald Trump can make the news about his thoughts on running for the Presidency. No one makes mention of other sins. No one seems to care that the Bible clearly states that "all Liars shall find their place in the Lake of Fire".
The Bible also has the 10 Commandments. How many of those get broken on a daily basis by taking the Lords name in vain, by not attending church, by lusting in our hearts, by lying and disrespect. I think that the Lord Jesus Christ said it best when He said, "Why do you care about the speck of dust in your brother's eye, when you have a huge beam in your own eye..."
Why would you discriminate against Lesbians and Gays because you feel it is a sin, when you are nothing but a sinner yourself? "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone"
One other arguement that seems to be making it's rounds is that same sex couples cannot have children. This is simply not true. Without using an expensive fertility clinic, my spouse and I got pregnant at home without a man present...just his sperm. I even wrote an eBook on it called
Pass the Uniting American Families Act and the Respect for Marriage Act. Just because something is a tradition, doesn't mean it is always the right thing to do. Some times rules are meant to be broken, sometimes traditions must be changed and make new traditions.
