Marriage is between a man and a woman.
Since: Jan 10
4 And He answered and said to them,“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said,‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Timothy 1:8-10
8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.
No such thing as gay marriage. They can do what they want, it 's their life, but it is not marriage. A man is not a woman and a woman is not a man ,sorry. Marriage is man and woman only.
it's about legalities, not a matter of religion or faith. it's about the guarantees made in the 14th amendment of the u.s. constitution of "equal protection" and "due process" under the laws of this nation.
no one is dictating what you should or shouldn't believe or how you express that belief. that can never be impinged upon.
unlike the laws restricting our homosexual neighbors, friends and relatives the ability to marry and protect their assets, right to make end of life decisions, etc. the GAO enumerated the priviligess extended to legally married couples to be just over 1300 - that are not available to homosexual couples. those same people that live next door to you, are friends with you or are related to you. and pay taxes, just like you. however, they don't the same privileges extended to them by our government as you.
when that was called out by the women in our society, the laws were changed to allow women to vote and own property.
when blacks made enough white people hear and understand that they didn't have the same rights to vote or an education or jobs or property, those laws were changed, either by us supreme court decisions or by legislation.
the premise is the same in this case.
if your only objection is because of the usage of the word "marriage" is a deemed a "religious reason", then you need to understand that there is legal precedent in not using religious reasons to deny a segment of the populace civil rights. there's numerous supreme court decisions explaining this and expounding on this premise.
think feel and believe as you wish - but it is not a legal reason to deny legal american citizens the same rights as you enjoy.
