A Refresher: Same-Sex Marriages–the Facts

Written by Andrew Linn on February 24, 2014

Recently, a federal court ordered the Commonwealth of Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages from other states, despite the fact that in 2004 a majority of Kentuckians voted for an amendment that defined marriage as between one man and one woman. Apparently the judge (and those who brought forth the lawsuit) did not care that an amendment cannot be struck down by a court ruling. Instead, it would have to be repealed. But liberals would rather rely on court decisions instead of the will of the people in order to get their way.

Now, some people will ask why there is such a big fuss over same-sex marriages. First of all, the Bible states that homosexuality is a sin, as mentioned in Genesis 18: 16-21, Genesis 19: 4-11, Leviticus 18: 22, Deuteronomy 23: 17, Romans 1: 26-27, the First Letter to the Corinthians 6: 9-10, and the First Letter to Timothy 1: 8-11. Thus, if one supports homosexual marriage, then they are also supporting homosexual behavior. It should be noted that other religions take a dim view of homosexuality.

Second, now that same-sex marriages have been legalized in America and other countries, other sexual deviants are now demanding the same treatment. Polygamists have come out of the woodwork, demanding that they be allowed to have more than one spouse (e.g. Muslims, Mormons). There are advocates of pedophilia (e.g. NAMBLA- North American Man/Boy Love Association, Muslims) who would support child marriages. There are also those individuals who probably think incest should be legalized, especially since some countries allow it.

The next thing you know, bestiality will be legalized (which is already the case in some places). Finally, necrophiliacs will be demanding the right to carry out their lustful activities with dead people. Who knows how many other sexually deviant practices might emerge once a slippery slope occurs?

Third, there are serious health risks involving homosexuality. Sexually transmitted diseases (including AIDS), rectal damage, and even cancer are the medical consequences of engaging in either gay or lesbian sexual activity. In addition, tuberculosis outbreaks have even been linked to gays who were HIV positive. Thus, homosexual behavior not only jeopardizes the gay community, but also entire communities.

Fourth, there is the issue of the so-called gay gene. Contrary to what Lady Gaga says, people are not born gay. There is no scientific evidence proving that a gay gene does exist. Thus, it is junk science, just like evolution or global warming. It should also be noted that when the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders in 1973, it did so not because of scientific evidence, but due to pressure from gay activists.

Finally, the issue of same-sex marriages is just one segment of the homosexual agenda. Contrary to popular belief, the gay activists are not advocating equality. Instead, they are trying to take over. Examples include labeling opponents of same-sex marriages as homophobes and calling for hate speech laws (e.g. making it illegal to say homosexuality is immoral).

In conclusion, I should point out that the issue of gay rights is not just a social issue, but also a health issue as well as a scientific issue. I will also add that the fight against the homosexual agenda is a fight for both the body and the spirit.
