Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Freedom, Fundamentally at Odds
In recent essays at Public Discourse, Mark Regnerus argued that same-sex marriage would harm marriage for everyone, and John Smoot argued that it would be bad for children in particular. Today I want to show the damage that redefining marriage does to religious freedom. At bottom, even the defense of religious liberty is a struggle over what is true and false about the meaning of marriage.
Should the truth about marriageâ€”that it unites men and women so that children will have fathers and mothersâ€”be defied by the laws of the land, we cannot expect the religious freedom of those who believe in that ancient truth to be respected under the new dominion of falsehood.
After all, if redefining marriage to include same-sex couples accords with justice and moral truth, there is no good reason for the new legal order to make room for â€śconscientiousâ€ť religious dissenters, for clearly their consciences are...
The law may recognize same sex marrige but God don't. He's still going to see them as sinners living in gross degrading sin. Professing to be wise they became fools. Gods hand is not on America. It's all down hill from here on. They will see they are all wrong in the end. How horrifying their judgment will be. As much as they believe God loves them and they can do what they want with no consequences, government included. Horrific . I shudder to think of their end (aharit) I pity their souls.
Same-sex marriage is not the problem. Homosexuality is the problem. Since the political morons of western nations legalised homosexual practice the very land itself has been defiled. (Lev 18:22-25)
There is no such thing as same -sex marriage!! Since God does not put them together, what HE does is condemn these ignorant perverts and their Liberal supporters to hell and eternal damnation.
Politicians and bureaucrats need to understand that they are sending people and children to the fires of hell. But if and when they could find out that fact they would be converted which would remove them from the evil politics of today. Satan would remove them from any influence since he prefers his own staff only to run the nations, such as Obama, and Cameron. Christian values, decency and morals are not allowed in political thought today. Only sin, depravity and moral corruption is allowed.
These people will do what they want to do, but for me, it boils down to how the next generation will be corrupted, growing up to believe that, like evolution, homosexuality is a.o.k. Not to mention the psychological damage and confusion that two moms or two dads will bring. Same sex marriage...gross. what same sex couples do behind closed doors...gross. The emotional and spiritual toll in the children...tragic.
