The Bible unmistakably and repetitively tells us that homosexual activity is a sin! (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9).
What about the people who can’t help it?
God did not create people with homosexual desires. Our old sin natures are the reason for homosexuals in this world. (Rom 1:24-27) It is their own choice. A person may be born with a greater vulnerability to homosexuality, as are people who are born with a tendency to violence, slothfulness, or other sins. That does not excuse the person choosing to sin by giving into their sinful desires. If a person is born with a weakness to anger, does that make it right for then to give into those desires? Certainly not. The same is true for homosexuality.
What is so wrong with letting homosexuals marry?
Up until the past couple of years, it was unheard of and absolutely hilarious and ridiculously absurd to tolerate two people of the same sex to even think of getting married. The meaning of marriage isn’t something that each generation is free to redefine. Marriage is defined by God, and any society with brains will protect that.
All people have the right to marry, as long as you follow a few simple rules. 1.) You can’t marry anyone if you are already married. 2.) You can’t marry a close relative. 3.) An adult can not marry a child. 4.) You can’t marry your pet. 5.) You can’t marry someone of the same gender. There you go. The five simple rules of marriage. If we allow homosexuals to be married, the next thing we know, people will be marrying their grandmas, uncles, moms, kids, Fido, or Rover. I don’t even have to tell you that this is sick; I think we all agree.
Shouldn’t homosexuals have the same right as heterosexuals to marry?
No U.S. court has ever recognized, nor has any scientific study ever proven that homosexuality is rooted in nature. Therefore, as far as we know, homosexuals are born heterosexuals but are affected by biological, psychological, and social factors.
So how does God feel about gays and lesbians?
God’s forgives homosexuality just as He forgives any other sin—the same as adulterers, idol worshippers, murderers, thieves, etc. God’s loves homosexuals just as He loves anyone else (John 3:16; Romans 5:8). God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Cor 6:11; 2 Cor 5:17).
What is marriage?
Marriage is the uniting of two souls to become one flesh in Holy matrimony before friends, family, each other, and God. God ordained Marriage to be between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6).
To give sanction to homosexual marriage would be to give approval to that lifestyle, which the Bible clearly and consistently condemns as sinful. Homosexual marriage is a perversion of the institution of marriage and an enormous offense to the God who created marriage. God forbids and condemns homosexuality, so He clearly is opposed to homosexual marriage.
You aren’t being very fair. What do you have against homosexuals, anyway?
As Christians, we are commanded by God to be loving and kind to homosexuals, while at the same time not overlooking their sinful lifestyle. We should be acceptable of them as human beings, but not accepting of their behavior. Therefore, I believe that homosexual marriage should not legal.

Think of it this way:
The whole purpose and meaning of marriage would be destroyed. Marriage would merely become an emotional relationship that’s flexible enough to include any grouping of loving adults. If it’s fair for two men or two women to marry, then why not three or five or seventeen? The terms “husband” and “wife” would become words with no meaning.
Parenthood would consist of any number of emotionally attached people who care for kids. The unique roles of mother and father would be eliminated.
Gender would be nothing. Our society hates to think that we are different from each other. Everyone wants to be accepted, and everyone wants to be treated like we all have no differences. Consequently, everyone develops into “Mr. Potato Head”, and there aren’t any real, deep differences between the two sexes except body parts. If real differences didn’t exist, women wouldn’t need men, and men wouldn’t need women.
There are clear differences between men and women. Women have characteristics and things to offer that men do not possess enough of, and men have characteristics and things to offer women that they do not possess enough of. The two come together, and balance one another out and make a perfect “puzzle piece fit” together. Unfortunately, our society has come to believe that women and men are one-in-the-same, have no differentiation.
