The gay blogger was blasting the “bigots”–those who voted in California against legalizing gay marriage. Hypocrites even, he said, especially blacks who voted 70% to 30% against. “Now you are discriminating against another minority–gays,” he wrote. He implied that the majority thought of gays as less than human.
This was my response to his rant:
I agree wholeheartedly that gays are human beings–people with rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. However, “holy matrimony” or marriage is a spiritual and physical joining together by God of a male and female. These two become one and are the only two human beings that “God hath joined together” scripturally. God has not changed His position on this. He did say, “I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; I change not.”
Marriage between male and female is a moral right granted by the Creator. It was never granted to those of the same sex. You are trying to forge gay marriage into a civil right, erroneously basing it as a moral or inalienable right. “…That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” According to the Declaration of Independence, it is the Creator that gives the moral or unalienable rights to mankind. He gave “holy matrimony” to males and females. Civil rights are manmade laws; a civil union, therefore, should be the route you should attempt at equality.
For you see, this male/female spiritual union is in the internal genetic fabric of human society with roots going back thousands of years, planted there by a purposeful Creator. That is the reason that “gay marriage” was rejected, first by the Creator and now by the people of CA and FL. It doesn’t set well in the human heart and psyche because it never was part of the divine plan, according to the scriptures.
To get extra legal rights that married couples have, gays should call it civil unions, etc.
“Gay” and “marriage” is the ultimate oxymoron because of the Creator’s plan; they cannot go together. Marriage is a spiritual thing that God does with males and females.
I do say this in love: the God of the Bible rejects homosexuality in the strongest of terms (See Genesis 19 and Romans 1: 26-27).
But I do not condemn you; I just want to inform you as to the reasons you are running up against a brick wall, or rather, a Rock wall…Marriage is a spiritual thing, a religious institution in the eyes of God. Calling your relationship a “marriage” is at the root of the problem many heterosexuals have with it. And most people still sense this though our national sins are separating us from Him more and more. Biblically, God’s got His own thoughts about what marriage is. We all are commanded to pray and seek His will in all matters, including holy matrimony. KWH
