Hey Guys! I have seen alot of people’s views on gay marriage and I just wanted to trow mine out there. First off I believe homosexuality is wrong because in the Bible it clearly states that man is to be united with his wife and that a women should be united to her husband. But I also believe that gay marriage shouldn’t be against the law. Many people say that we shouldn’t allow it because we shouldn’t let our brothers and sister fall into sin. But, God tells us what is right and wrong, but he still gives us a choice. Who are we to take away someone else’s choice? By doing so we are trying to take the place of God. What we need to do is change that person’s heart, otherwise the only thing they will feel towards us and God is hate.

I pretty much agree!
I of course believe that it is biblically wrong, however only Christians follow the Bible’s teachings, and not everyone is Christian. Part of America’s freedom is freedom of religion, and even though I don’t think gay marriage/relationships are right, I don’t believe it’s right to deny freedom to others. The truth of the matter is that this isn’t a Christian nation (not anymore, anyways), and if we are a country that claims to give religious freedom, we cannot make things illegal just because one specific religion/belief system condemns it. For example, what if people started pushing for another religion’s morality to be made the law of the land? I wouldn’t be too happy if people tried to make the teaching of Buddha or something the law of America. As for the “brothers and sisters fall[ing] into sin” part… My argument for that is that not everyone is our brother or sister in Christ. We should, of course, respect everyone and treat them kindly, but taking away a freedom from others isn’t something I believe in, regardless of what I think of the topic.
I have a similar view on abortions. I am 100% pro-life and I believe abortions are wrong because it’s killing an unborn baby. But at the same time, as a female, I can totally see the argument of women’s rights and their right to choose. I can even see how the idea of it would be tempting—if I somehow got pregnant when I didn’t want to, I can see why it might be tempting to abort it and not have to worry about the financial/emotional/physical/social strain. I would never do that, but between that and the woman’s control over her own body, I can definitely understand the other side. Even though I’m pro-life, I don’t necessarily think abortion should be illegal. Before it was legal, women who wanted an abortion would go to some sketchy, back-alley place to get it done without the proper tools or sanitation. Some women even got them done with coat hangers. Women sometimes lost their lives or permanently damaged their bodies. Plus, if a woman is choosing for an unborn child to die, it is far less painful for the fetus with legal abortions as opposed to a coat hanger or whatever else. (Don’t get me wrong, it is painful for the fetus regardless. I’m just saying an illegal one without proper tools hurts both parties more.) Even if it was made illegal, women who wanted one would still find a way to illegally get one in a far more dangerous manner. As much as I hate the idea of abortion, making it illegal would cause a lot more harm to women.

The thing is, with gay marriage, we can’t do much. Although I am completely against it, I have several Christian friends that disagree. In my school, the topic doesn’t come up that often. When it does, I’m often the only one that is against it. The thing is that we are supposed to be “excepting to everyone”. Guess what? I won’t hate you if you’re gay. However, a sin is a sin. No sin is worse than another is God’s eyes. Example: Based off of what I just said, promoting gay marriage is equal to supporting murder. Just think about it that way.

I totally agree with everything said except the thing about abortion. I mean I know abortion IS wrong, but even nonchristians should have a sense of justice, If we would outlaw murder, we should outlaw abortion. That does not, however, mean that we should not help and love the victims of unwanted pregnancies.
