The Issue of Gay Marriage

Earlier this week, California made it completely legal for gay folks to get married.  All nice and legal like.  Basically, I hate this idea, this concept, etc.  Many people are going to flame me righteous for saying so, but you know what?  It’s my blog.  Why can everyone else share their opinion, as long as it goes with this new flow of acceptence and political correctness.  So when someone says that they don’t like the idea of gay marriage they get attacked as being bigots or even some form of “raciests” and to me that is completely unacceptable.

Here’s why I fine the idea that I’m a bigot unacceptable.  Mainly because the same people who would call be a bigot and tell me that I should be more accepting of views that aren’t my own are guilty of the very thing they are calling me a bigot over.  As an American, I’m entitled to my beliefs and opinions, the same as every other American citizen.

So with that in mind, I feel that I need to share.  But before I truely open up I need to set the record straight.  If you have read this blog for any length of time you probably know already but I’m going to say it anyway for the interest of full disclosure.  I’m a Christian, not hell-fire-and-brimstone, but a Christian none-the-less.  Also, I’m republician.  Again, not some insane republician that gives us a bad name, but generally one that has a good head on his shoulders.  So with that out of the way, can we move on now?

So my two main issues with the idea of gay marriage is the fact that view homosexuality to be wrong.  It’s unbiblical and it is not in God’s plans to further the species.  The Bible talks about this.  And I do not mean in the Old Testement either.  It is talked about in the first chapter of Romans.

“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” (Romans 1:26-27)

The above has to do with the fall of the Roman empire (and you wonder why there was so much gay sex in HBO’s Rome).  There are some other Old Testement references, but since people seem to frown on those, I’ll avoid them.  The main point I want folks to understand (at least about my point of view) is that if you read the passage you notice that God basically says “fine, you want to trade Me for idols, then I’ll give you over to that which is unnatural.”  The key here is that word, unnatural.  The Bible is very clear about homosexuality being an “unnatural” ordeal.  So this is one of my main issues with the idea of homosexuality.

The second issue is the fact that homosexual’s can’t (without scientific help) reproduce.  They can not naturally continue the human species.  If everyone today was gay, the human as a species will cease to exist.  Some are going to argue “artificial ensemination” but that is not a natural form of reproduction (it needs scientific intervention).  So by accepting the practice of homosexuality you pretty much are okay with the end of human existence.  Okay, that’s a little far fetched and more than likely unrealistic, and since I don’t know an extremely large percentage of you, I really can’t say what you okay with.

So let me end with this note.  I don’t hate gay people.  Met some really cool ones over the years and I’m sure I’ll meet many more in my lifetime.  I believe in a phrase “hate the sin, love the sinner” and it something I try to adhere to.  So if you feel the need to flame, you may, but know that I will not respond to angry flames.  Heck I probabably won’t respond to any flames at all.  But I will not delete or censor comments (unless they are just really bad, my parents read this blog people).  This was an opinion piece, my opinion, on my blog.  Keep that in mind as you shout your taunts of “bigotry” and “unacceptance” please.

    I dislike labels, and feel the need to qualify the fact that I would be called a social liberal, agnostic- just as you feel the need to explain the timbre of your Christian Republican ideology. I feel I'm an issue-by-issue person and don't want to be lumped with someone's idea of who I am. That said, on this issue, I completely disagree with your stance… but I respect and defend your right to voice your opinion, and I think that's key to open civilized discourse.
