Same-sex marriage should not happen

Letter to the editor

I would like to write a few words in response to Mr. Lee Raines’ letter to the editor (“Marriage equality in Georgia matters to me,” In My View, April 5). I agree with Mr. Raines that he has every right to choose whatever lifestyle he prefers. God’s word says to “choose you this day whosoever you will serve” (Joshua 14:15). God’s word also says, “Come now let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18). So, let’s reason together a little bit.

During the week of creation, God created man and woman (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:7 and 2:21-23). God created a man and a woman and gave them a special privilege and that was to be faithful and multiply and to replenish the Earth (Genesis 1:28). That is to have children and become a family with a mama and a daddy. You and your so-called husband can’t do that.

If God had created two men or two women, none of us would be here. Think about that. God knew what he was doing. He doesn’t need any of us to think that we can do better. If you will read Romans 1:24-27 and Leviticus 18:22, you will see it’s not only wrong, but it’s an abomination.

I hope anyone in this kind of a lifestyle will think on these things. Everything that God has instituted, the devil, or Satan, has offered a counterfeit. Such as marriage and the family, counterfeited was the first day of the week for the seventh day (Genesis 2:23). We never die. We die but we still live (Genesis 3:4), plus many more.

Your comments are valid from a spiritual point of view and I concur. But that paper called the constitution gives the freedom for same sex marriage. I don’t like it but that is what people have been screaming about especially in the last 5 years – their rights. The constitution finally came around for one gender to have the right to vote, it came around for one race to be accepted as human. The constitution came around for one race to marry outside of their race. Quoting scriptures that is true is good but not when you have as your foundation a flawed document that allow everyone to do as they please. I would say keep quoting scriptures but realize we are working with a flawed piece of paper. Same sex marriage will happen just like women’s rights to vote, interracial marriage and the ban on alcohol drinking lifted. We can’t boast about our freedoms compared to other countries (especially compared to the Middle East laws) while complaining about people who exercise or push for their freedoms to new limits. It’s the new American way – demand YOUR rights.

Nolan- good try good bible research but real life isnt a sunday school class. Any atempt to legislate morality based on ones interpretations of the ancient christian bible are based on the supernatural and not the personal freedoms americans proudly have. Why does everyone else have to follow YOUR gods rules?
