Therefore, why do gays and lesbians want to get married under a God who has already made clear His position about such a union? (obviously one of
opposition to it, plain as day)
If gay people were trying to force religious institutions to marry them despite those institutions objections I would have a huge problem with it.
My understanding is that gay people wish to be married in the eyes of the govt. and to have the same rights afforded to them that heterosexual couples
have. The ability to list a gay partner on an insurance policy, to be able to be considered a husband/wife/partner if the other were sick in the
hospital etc. I've heard tell of long term gay partners being barred from even visiting since they weren't considered family.
I don't think gay folks would want to force churches that disagreed with homosexuality to marry them. It would be horribly hypocritical.
In my opinion any two consenting adults that wish to enter into marriage (call it what you will, civil union) should be allowed.
We don't live in a country where popular opinion trumps an individuals rights. At least we aren't supposed to. Two people that are in love should
be able to have the same benefits of marriage if they make the commitment regardless of sexual orientation.
I don't get how anyone takes issue with this. What if Christianity was deemed immoral by popular opinion? Should Christianity then not be accepted
as a legitimate religion?
Do unto others and such. If you think it's immoral that's fine, but you're not God. Let Him judge.
