If God approves of gay "marriage", then would He not also have to approve if a man were to marry his sister (incest) or if a woman were to marry her dog (bestiality), since these relationships can also involve a loving, committed and enduring relationship? Furthermore, if God approves of gay "marriage", then would He not have said so when He originally defined marriage in the Old Testament and confirmed that definition later in the New Testament? Surely the all-knowing God -- the One who knows the end from the beginning -- would have given guidance on that point for all future generations, were it a valid point.

God doesn't enter into this debate in any way. The voters, the courts and the legislatures CANNOT change your church's definition of marriage -- all they can do is grant equal status under the law. If gay couples want a church blessing or their union, they can already have that in MANY churches. What they cannot have is access to more than a thousand benefits of marriage in tax law, immigration law, Social Security regulations, military spousal benefits, veterans' benefits and more. It is discriminatory, and no god would approve of that.

Oh, and by the way, let me know when you find a dog that can say "I do."

You mention "voters" when you have total contempt for the will of the people.

God is not a part of the equation. This is a secular issue.

It's more important than you think it is. God is the equation.

God is very much a part of the equation whether you believe in Him or not. Your very soul is at stake. You will remember this when you stand before Him on judgement day. You cannot rule out religion or faith in this subject. You either believe God's rules or you don't. He set up the first family and Jesus was born into a family of a mother and a father. Children can trace their lineage from a mother and a father, but not from two fathers or two mothers. How sad that children of sodomite couples cannot look back and find their blood relatives.
Kids need both a mom and a dad!

The current controversy concerning marriage may be one of the biggest distractions in this election season. It is often categorized as a divisive “social issue.” Many Americans realize that the definition of marriage, the controversy about abortion, and America’s support of Israel are huge spiritual and moral issues which will determine the kind of America we will create for the generations that follow us.

Same-sex marriage advocates love to talk about the freedom to love and their own interpretation of “rights.” The truth is that none of us need a...
