More on marriage equality…

A few Bible passages which explains what God’s intention of marriage was originally intended to be:

“But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’”
—Mark 10:6 (NKJV)

“And the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’ Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: ‘This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
—Genesis 2:18-25 (NKJV)

I could find a whole bunch more. Remember, that old saying, “It’s Adam and Eve, Not Adam and Steve.”? It really is true if you think about it! I’ve been speaking about my thoughts on marriage equality on twitter and facebook. Trying my best to not sound offensive and hateful, so I won’t get a public backlash, and so far, I didn’t get one. Nothing wrong with disagreeing with marriage equality, it’s how it’s being said.

Even though, I don’t agree with marriage equality, sure enough, there’s always going to be people who are going to be pissed off or disagree with me… but I don’t care. Not everyone have to be a supporter of marriage equality. We all have a right to disagree with it. There will be some people who think it’s alright that I’m entitled to my own opinion even if they won’t agree with it, but there always going to be a few who will still hate me for it.

That’s what idiotic about same sex marriage debates. When you disagree with it, you’re all of a sudden looked at as an evil and hateful person. No matter how positive or how less offensive, your thoughts on gay marriage is, when you disagree with it. Not everyone have to have the same opinions on everything, in politics and current events, ya know? If people want to remove me from facebook or unfollow me on twitter ’cause I simply voiced my opinion, that’s fine. Let ’em.

I have the right to believe in traditional marriage. Traditional marriage, all began with Adam and Eve. People just don’t understand that. I’m sure some do understand that, but when you bring same sex marriage into things, that’s just disrespecting and re-writing the traditional part of things. Know what I mean? Look don’t get me wrong, honestly, I would have loved for gay people for being able to get married, but since the Bible and God doesn’t allow it, that is what makes it wrong. Really think about it guys. Doesn’t wife/wife and husband/husband, sounds a bit awkward and strange?

I’m only trying to give people a reality check here.

Of course, like I said before, it wouldn’t surprise me if gay marriage does become legal in the USA today, ’cause President Obama will have a big hand in making it happen. All he has to do is go to the Supreme Court, sign a few papers, and that’s it.

A marriage should be between a man and a woman. Disagreeing with gay marriage, doesn’t mean I hate gay people, though. I totally respect them, all the way. Everybody has their right, whether to agree to disagree with gay marriage . Gay marriage is just disrespecting what marriage was originally intended from the beginning.

    1. I’m not. Not at all, but I still respect the traditional way of marriage. I’m just bringing up facts that marriage was a religious institution and always will be. You can’t re-create it. I believe all those marriage equality supporters are very delusional people and they all need to wake up. I understand they’re trying to have heart and respect the gays, I respect the gay people too, but in reality gay people, do not have the right to marry, no matter what you think of it. They have the right to love each other all they want to, but marriage is a different story.

      1. So, it’s ok for them to love each other all they want, but if they are in a committed relationship for years and years, just like a heterosexual couple, they shouldn’t be entitled to any of the same benefits, right?

      2. That’s right. Marriage has always been intended to be between a man and a woman. It’s not opinion either, it’s factual. It’s only opinion that you think they have the right to marry.

      3. ….but it doesn’t make me a hateful homophobe just because I disagree with marriage equality. I believe in traditional marriage and there’s nothing wrong with that. If people don’t like it, they can suck it.

  1. That’s still just opinion, Kev.It’s the religious’ right interpretation of the bible. That does not make it fact. Where in the bible does it mention the word marriage, or that marriage is between one man and one woman? Several prominent figures and christian/biblical leaders had several wives. Abram, Esau, Jacob, Abraham, Solomon…among many others. That’s polygamy. And although it would appear to be heterosexual in nature, there was still more than one woman within the same marriage.

    What about non-christains? Or atheists? Marriage is not an institution that was created by the bible or God. What’s in the bible is the interpretation of it for that set of believers and followers.

    Personally, I feel the government should stay out of marriage altogether. That means no rules or regulations on it. No rewards or benefits. No special treatment. If two people want to get married, it’s their business. They should not need the blessing, nor the permission of the government. And they should get nothing from the government for it.

    No tax benefits. No medical benefits. Social Security should not pass over to the spouse when one dies. If there is a balance owed to the recipient, it should be the recipient who dictates via their will where it should go.

    1. It maybe none of our business true, but people just don’t understand the origins of marriage. It’s original intention. People seem to be trying to re-write the history of it. People don’t seem to get that a marriage between a man and a woman is supposed to be a permanent thing. That’s what some of us are trying to defend, and what I’ve been saying from the beginning. Marriage has everything to do with religion. All of it. It’s hard to explain traditional marriage but I’m reading into it. I will always support it and I will always defend traditional marriage.

  2. If it is supposed to be permanent, why are there divorce laws? And who says it won’t be permanent between a two people of the same sex

    Marriage is a unification of more than one thing into a single unit. In restaurants, you will hear mention of “marrying” ketchup bottles. It’s taking all the partial bottles and making them into one bottle.

    With people, it’s taking two (or more) separate lives and combining them into one life. Which is symbolic, of course, and not literal.

    Marriage has taken place long before there was organized religion. It was organized religion that started placing it’s rules and definitions on what marriage is. Look at Eastern cultures vs Western cultures and you will find very different rules regarding what marriage is. My grandparents had an arranged marriage. My grandmother had no choice in who she could marry. She was selected for my grandfather by their respective families.She was essentially bought by my grandfathers family for my grandfather.

    If you want to talk “traditional” marriage, then this example is closer to tradition than what we practice today, as this was the customary practice from the begging of ancient times. It was only modern societies that did away with pre-arranged marriages and the dowry systems (which some cultures still practice today).

    And really, it all boils down to just a word. So many voters disapprove same sex marriage, yet they have no prob;em supporting “civil unions” which give same sex couples all the same rights as a married couples.

    1. If it is supposed to be permanent, why are there divorce laws?

      You didn’t comprehend of what I was trying to say, dude. I’m not saying that marriage is permanent, I’m saying that a marriage between a man and a woman was supposed to be a forever kind of thing. It has always been meant for the opposite sex. Period. End of story.
