Ladies and gentlemen, please calm down. Are we really going to fight over this gay marriage thing? Whining about it on Facebook or social media sites does nothing to change the situation, so please just knock it off. If you want to help, start productive conversations here, not just whine.
Look, I really don't care what gay couples do. I really don't. If I'm not mistaken, the bible says strait people get the last laugh. If you want to use the bible to damn them, go ahead. But remember, it's God, not us, who passes judgement and punishment. So don't go out there and abuse gay people, verbally or physically, that's not your job, and in the process you will become a greater evil.
"Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:19-21 NIV)
If you must know that something bad will befall them someday, just remember the big man up above is not pleased by what they're doing, and will pass judgement on them someday. But God will also not be pleased if you rejoice every time some tragedy falls upon gay people. Because then, you are becoming evil and hard hearted in the process.
"Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
Or the LORD will see it and be displeased,
And turn His anger away from him." Proverbs 24:17,18
"And turn His anger away from him" ...and likely onto you my hard hearted friend.
If you still want more than that, to know that gay people suffer here as well as in the next life, then you are part of the problem. Forgive them. If you don't forgive them, how can you expect to be forgiven? Keep in mind, we are all broken sinners.
"For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (Matthew 6:14, 15 ESV)
Forgive them, and if you must see gay people punished, be content that they are damned in the next life.
Now, onto the topic of marriage. As I'm sure we are all aware, the bible says man and woman should be married. There's a million references to this, but here's an early one.
"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." (Genesis 2:24 ESV)
Marriage is when a man and a woman are united in a partnership that will last forever. It was created for man and woman by God. As far as where gay people fit into this, they shouldn't be married. BUT, that shouldn't mean they can't be together or shouldn't have some kind of partnership, in my opinion. MARRIAGE should be reserved for man and woman. If gay couples want to be together, go for it, it's your life, just don't get married.
You can't say you want to get married if you're a gay couple for religious reasons, because that's not what marriages are for. It's for man and woman to be joined together by God. Not for man and man or woman and woman. You can't possibly play the religious reasons card there. That's not what marriage is for. That's like using a screwdriver to change the TV channel, that's just not what it's used for, that's not its purpose.
Also the same can be said with gay sex. God created sex between man and woman to be able to show each other the same kind of love that God can show us. Not for emotional, sexual, and physical relief, but to show each other that kind of love. That love that God shows us, he has given it to man and woman in their sexual interactions. This is one point that I myself am a little sketchy on, but The Lord hasn't led me astray yet, so why would he lead me astray on this subject? He is the truth after all.
Bottom line, don't harm gay people, because you are becoming a greater evil in the process. If you must know a tragedy will befall gay people, just know that God will someday judge them. That should be enough for you, and if it's not, then you're a hard hearted person who is a bigger problem. As far as marriages, I don't believe gay people should get married. That's not what marriage is for, it's for the union of man and woman. Marrying the same sex people is not the purpose of marriage. I'm sorry, but that's the truth.
Now please, I insist that you comment in the comments. Lets start a productive conversation about this. Lets just get out if each others way for one second, and do some productive thinking and communicating on this subject. Please.
