Homosexuality is a sin. But people should be free to engage in it here in America. Homosexual couples should be afforded the same rights as heterosexual couples. But there should be no marriages between them. How can we grant them their rights without violating the sanctity of marriage?
God had a hand in the founding of The United States of America. It was the first democracy, and it serves as a model for the world which has been well followed. God wanted there to be a land where people were free — even to sin. He wanted Christians born in the dispensation of democracy to freely choose to follow God’s will in the face of legal temptations.
Unfortunately, some people are going to deny God’s law allowing only for heterosexual relations (or deny that God exists at all). Such sinners fall for lust of the flesh, and give in to desires of intimacy with people of the same sex.
Their rights should be upheld by the law of the land. Homosexual couples should have a right to a civil union. This is a legal binding of 2 people. Such couples should have the same rights as a heterosexual, married couple. They should be able to fill out a joint tax return, for example.
They should also be able to adopt kids. Homosexuals have some of the same heterosexual desires that married couples have, namely, having kids. There is no reason why 2 people of the same sex can’t be the parents of children who are unwanted or were unplanned by their natural parents. This would decrease abortion as there would be a greater demand for adopting kids.
But why do homosexuals want to call such a legal union a marriage?
A marriage should only be between one man and one woman. God has declared this through modern-day prophets as well as in times of old. Church invented marriage, and it has a legal right to its practice. It’s almost like a trademark. Just like Coca-Cola and McDonald’s have the exclusive right to sell products under their brand names (like Big Mac and Sprite), religion has a traditional claim to the use of the term “marriage.” It is not necessary to soak this term in the impurities of business law. They don’t actually need to seek out such a “trademark.” They already own the right and privilege to use it exclusively. After all, God is the one who commanded us to marry. There is no ancient civilization that practiced marriage that was Atheist.
The Church will keep defending the sanctity of marriage. The fight against homosexual marriage isn’t going to go away no matter how many homosexuals cry for the right to use this religious term.
But they do have rights that need to be defended based on the values of American freedom. God wants responsible homosexual couples to take a civil union, if they desire one (and it is legal for them to do so), and to adopt as many kids as possible. These are kids who would otherwise be aborted.
In the name of Jesus Christ, unto Him in prayer to end the killing of abortion, and to uphold the sanctity of marriage, and to allow those born in this dispensation to be free in their respective democratic nations; let freedom prevail.
