When civilisation began for mankind, it always began through the teachings of an advanced being, who gave our ancestors moral and ethical guidelines
to progress till today, across EVERY civilisation on Earth.
No civilisation ever claimed that they came into this world all-knowing on their own, except current day fellow human brothers and sisters of the
And every civilisation that began viewed MARRIAGE as a SACRED act, with a DIVINE and pragmatic purpose - populate the earth and fulfill our destiny to
Same sex unions were FROWNED upon by ALL societies at ALL ERAS. Those that don't frown upon them - gets wiped out, such as ancient homosexual greece
and barbaric ancient tribes that left only a few stone records of their existance once on planet Earth.
It is true that as we progress and evolved, we have to discard some of the older and often archiac scriptures that were meant for a different time. We
had booted out monarchs, replaced cows with machines as farm tools, removed bows and arrows with Nuclear bombs that can wipe out entire civilisations
in one stroke, etc.
However, we MUST ENSURE that the ESSENCE of the scriptures are still kept, even if its context no longer fits in our modern world. It was such essence
that gave the world the US Constitution, which many of democratic countries applied to their own. Times change, but moral and ethical guidelines for
humankind remained the same, as human nature had equally remain the same, sadly.
Thus, MARRIAGE - the union between a man and a woman for pragmatic purposes, is an essence we mankind must maintain.
Unfortunately, there is a loud and vocal minority whom wants that essense changed, either for selfish reasons, or for political mileage, grandstanding
and demogoguery gains.
I agree that homosexuals should NOT be discriminated in any way. Nor should they be prejudiced just for their sex acts, which happens behind closed
doors and IS PRIVATE, and not for public consumption.
Homosexuals are as human as anyone else. They work, contribute and defend the nation equally as anyone else. They too are capable of love, just like
But their reason for wanting the sanctity of Marriage to be applied to them is simply because they want the protection, benefits and rights of such
unions be granted to them, and not for the original purpose of which marriage is about - reproduction, care and concern, growth and evolution.
They claim they can adopt kids, but why subject kids to such unnecessary ridicle from others when they grow up pondering upon mankind's role on Earth?
They claim they can use IVF, but then, IVF, like adoption, still needs a woman to give birth. When homosexuals become the norm, are real women then
enchained FORCIBLY to horrifically become BABY FACTORIES, to fill greying population for economic purposes?
Perhaps a moratorium of 50 years be set aside for the decision on homosexual marriages, with no sides wasting court and precious society time - no
challenges and no staged protests, so that ALL nations and mankind can study it objectively and peacefully - its pros and cons.
The homosexual lobby can try to show their side of the story, while the hetrosexual side can reflect on the causes of homosexuality such as mental
issues, economic issues, etc, its attractions, and how to steer the new generation back into the essences of our moral and ethical guidelines given.
Ultimately, each human has free will, and must be allowed the freedom to choose, for evolution, or for its demise. But let no human be
In the meantime, if homosexuals desire for the rights entitled to marriage, they should be allowed instead to form civil unions, based upon
contractual oaths signed and recognised by the courts.
They can still gain State benefits, provided the govt gives benefits to them, but of a lesser scale as they are not able to procreate and when they
grow old, they will become the burden of others' young to take care of them.
Once 50 years are up, mankind would have the wisdom based upon informed opinions from both sides to decide if they should crack the sanctity of
marriage to include homosexual unions, OR, maintain that ancient tradition and essence to protect the growth and evolution of mankind.
Let us not be hasty, or allow bleeding hearts and ignorant empathy to corrupt our actions over this issue now. It involves our very existance.
The insignificant nobody me humbly apologises here to anyone who is offended by my post. I mean no one any harm.
