Let’s quit walking around the pink elephant in the room. If you don’t view homosexuality as sin (and doing so is not about hating homosexuals because we all sin), then more than likely, you are going to have the views of California’s “No on 8” supporters.
So, there you have it! The fundamental difference, one side believes homosexuality is acceptable for all of society, the other side – Yes on 8 – believes that homosexuality is a sin and should not be embraced by society.
Hate gays? No. Hate the sin. Now you can debate your view that homosexual behavior is not sin…and that is your choice, your understanding, and your belief. Hate those that believe that way? No.
Will the acceptance of gay marriage effect our society? Yes. Will all people understand that concept? No. It goes back to whether or not you believe homosexuality is a sin or not.
And even before that, whether you believe in the concept of sin or not. For if you don’t believe that sin exists, and you believe that truth is your own relevance, then this discussion is mute.
Do I fear gays, or gay marriage, or anyone siding with the normalization of homosexuality? No. In fact, your orientation has no basis on my desire to be friends with you or anyone.
I fear the Lord.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” – Proverbs 1:7
ADD: A quick sprint through CNN’s and the Los Angeles Times’ stories and blogs on Prop 8 Sunday morning showed that anyone wanting to leave a comment received this message or something similar: “Comments have been closed for this article.”
For so many people espousing tolerance, especially media types, where’s the dialogue about homosexuality? And for all you evolutionists out there…why haven’t we “evolved” beyond simply political campaign signs and streetside demonstrations?
