“If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done
what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their
heads.”- Leviticus 20:13. “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit
the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: ..
inherit the kingdom of God.”- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. “Do not lie with a man
as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
“-Leviticus 18:22. According to
the Bible same-sex marriages would be immoral and sinful. Being gay and loving
another person is certainly not illegal, but uniting that couple in marriage is
not only rejected by most of society but also by Judaism, Christianity and
Islam. As a Christian I find same-sex marriages unacceptable, but I know that
not all people believe in the Bible and we do have freedom of religion in the US
. Courts in Hawaii would not allow same-sex marriages and that is now being
looked at as unconstitutional. Not allowing the marriages discriminates against
certain groups that are United States citizens and that is unconstitutional.
Even though I dont approve of same-sex marriages, according to our laws there
is really no reason why the marriages shouldnt take place. But I do think
there should be limitations. Marriages of the same-sex should not involve
children. There is no natural way that two people of the same-sex could possibly
have children of their own and should not be given custody of a child or the
ability to adopted a child. Governor Wilson, California republican is proposing
to ban “Second-parent adoptions, which in the past have been approved. These
regulations would require marital status to be given to the Department of Social
I don’t believe that gay parents will cause such a child to be gay.
But all things being equal, I do believe that child is being deprived of
crucial, necessary two-sex ingredients essential in parenting. That it takes a
man and a woman to produce that third person is the most basic proof that a
child needs both a mommy and a daddy. Children who have parents of the same-sex
would be unbearable harassed by other children and considered an outcast. An
innocent child put in a situation that would be emotionally stressful for most
of their youth-there is no need. Just imagine what a child would go through.
“Billy, which one of your dads wore the dress in the wedding?” or “Suzy,
which one of your moms is coming to the mother-daughter picnic?” Why put kids
in an environment that is not morally or socially acceptable in todays
society? Being gay should never result in being harassed, hated or hurt. But
sadly, being gay also should never mean being able to marry or adopt. Everything
in life has a price. Being childless is a high price. But a child’s basic needs
must always supersede the desires of an adult. Children must always come before
