I would like to get some facts straight on homosexual marriages. And to comment on President Obama's willingness to speak out for same sex marriage. Homosexuality is a choice of lifestyle that not all Americans and Christians agree upon. It is not a civil movement or one of equality. By coming out now after almost four years in the highest office in America agreeing to homosexual marriage is like a slap in the face to all people of all walks of life and faiths.
I don't know all religions but of the ones I do know of, none of them agrees with homosexual activities. The Bible has never changed and neither has God. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Those of us who read our Bible, go to church, and minister to others know this.
In the Old Testaments of the Bible, it says: If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 18:22.
In the New Testament the Book of Romans 1 talks about this issue in verse 27-32 and the consequences of that type of lifestyle as well as other sins: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet ...
Our forefathers who found this nation on freedom of religion, as well as freedom to build a new life in America with all kinds of people from all walks of life appalled by what our president has done. Every minister of every faith in America should hold President Obama accountable for this sin on our nation in this matter. Homosexual relations has been around a long time, but to legitimize it into marriage is just plain wrong. This world started with one man and one woman, not two men or two women. Therefore marriage is between one man and one woman, has been since the beginning of man: Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24.
Homosexuals can't have children by themselves. To have children, there has to be a male and a female even with all our technology today. A few days ago on the evening news it was reported that the "gallop pole" said 51 percent of all Americans are for same sex marriages. I would like to know where they are getting their figures, for it is nowhere near where I live. It was also reported awhile ago that 30 out of 50 states in America have laws banning same sex marriage. This doesn't add up. If all these states have laws against same sex marriage, why would the news anchor report it like this? Because it is on the news so much, people who are less informed think all the statistics are what all Americans feel. That is just not true. Most Christians thought abortion wouad never happen, so we did not speak out.
We let our court system be our voice and look what happened. Well, we learned the hard way that it does matter. On this issue, let our voices be heard. Marriage is between one man and one woman.
