Religion and Gay Lifestyle?

The new wave of anti-gay protesters have all jumped into the gay pond in France since the French President Francois Hollande signed the law authorizing marriage and adoption and the subsequent gay wedding held in Montpellier last week. Not everybody protests the gay lifestyle but not every one accepts it either.
Some are just being accommodating.
It’s become more of a social than a religious issue which is where many people would prefer it to be. It’s kind of easier that way.
One of the talking heads on TV asked a question on which I want to elaborate on here.
He said that despite the fact that France was a secular country, it had a lot of Catholics.
And the Catholic Church is still very much against the Gay rights and homosexuality in all forms.
He then asked why the Catholic gays won’t switch to a religion that was more suitable to their lifestyle.
So I ask, Do you choose a religion because it suits your lifestyle?

This may be the reason homosexuals are forming their own religious organizations, to find a place that will approve of their lifestyle. However, the God homosexuals would create would have to be a God that accepts homosexuality, which means their God would not be the same God as the God other religions acknowledge. Why? If God according to most religious sects forbids homosexuality, then that God is opposed to a homosexual lifestyle. If God changes not, he will not change his mind by accepting a lifestyle he pronounces to be an abomination.

Nowadays, churches are cropping up here and there on daily basis leading to religious confusion with a certain grouping attending church as it suits them. When people disagree with the doctrine of their chosen religion, they just set up their own church. It’s that simple. For them at least.
As much as many would ignore, obfuscate, or try to confuse the beginning of Matthew 19, Christ makes it very clear. The Creator made a male and a female and the two become one. That is marriage in the Christian religion, despite what a bunch of progressive Christians who have no use for the Bible would have the world believe.

Therein lies the problem for the gay rights movement.

As long as there are still Christians who actually follow Christ and uphold his word,
 a vast amount of people around the world — never mind Islam — will never ever see gay marriage as anything
other than a legal encroachment of God’s intent.

 People might be willing to accommodate their gay neighbours but it would be harder convincing people that because the gay lifestyle is just another variation of normal, gay marriage must be normalized.
That may be so but it doesn’t bring it close to being right.

Legal doesn’t always translate to Right.

  1. Please tell, which God created homosexuals? the same who made heterosexuals? Or are homosexuals spurns of the devil? The last time I checked, Only One I AM created the world and all it’s inhabitants animal and human, and at the end of it all, he said WHAT HE MADE IS GOOD.

    I don’t recall this I AM teaching hate or approving segregation. The gay men and women of our world also are his children. They want his blessings and his arms around them.
    Man is the only author of hate and discrimination and these laws and biblical quotations may be there alright, but please tell, which commandments are Christians to obey and follow?
    Is it the most important, to love your God with all of your heart or to love one another as our Christ loves?…Or should it be love some, but those you deem as abominations, then cast them aside?

    I personally have no problem with any gay person marrying whoever they choose and wherever they want. I think we are too busy in playing right hand men to this God and he has not asked for help.

    Surely he who allowed this to exists must have a reason and purpose for it. I don’t think obeying the commandment of love and tolerance is about progressiveness or political correctness.

    I think it’s about being human and sensitive to realize that when a certain group of people are suddenly deemed unfit for a certain thing or things, it will not be long before it spirals out of control.

    Religious leaders and so-called followers of God now teach how to feel, think,react and respond to the inherent senses and intuitiveness we all possess as spirits in our own rights.Religion has nothing to do with being a follower of Christ and adhering to his call and ways. It’s riddled in dogma and hypocrisy and will lead many to doom.

    A very interesting perspective and rational you have here, I hope my two pence is not offensive in anyway, just my humble opinions 🙂
    Saw you on OM’s blog and checked you out, turns out you is my home gal proper! 🙂

    1. Wow, that was real long. And no, not offended at all. Its only your opinion afterall. Once so often we hide behind religion to perpetuate hate. Yes, we are all God’s children but then again, him whom the gods want to kill they first make mad. The line between right and wrong is rapidly being eroded and the religious leaders are there for reason – to bring us back to the fold. I admit they do try to control our daily lives and thinking process but they help us navigate this journey of life.
      Pardon but i haven’t posted anything in quite a while. Your insight is surely appreciated.

  2. I like to remember two things when I consider homosexuality in the light of God.

    First, the great Decalogue doth not directly address this. Therefore, His admonition about homosexuality is simply embedded in the greater text, alongside the hundreds of other things we’re not supposed to do. We’re told not to do them, so I must believe it matters to Him, but I think it’s more along the lines of that it’s one of those things that does not serve us well. After all, we are to multiply, and that’s not possible for two men or two women.

    The other point, which I believe a vast majority of “religious” leaders and supposed Christians purposely overlook for their own homophobic reasons, is that there is no hierarchy of sin. I think everyone would agree that killing someone is “worse” than telling a little white lie, but both are sin and, in God’s eyes, doing either will make you GUILTY. You cannot stand in the presence of God while sin is on you, whether it’s from stealing an egg or a tube of lipstick, or murdering the family next door. Nor does the redemption of Christ lie on a spectrum. You don’t have to get more forgiveness from Christ because your sin is more socially unacceptable. You either come to Christ or you don’t; your request for Christ to live in your heart either comes from the heart or it doesn’t; you either receive Christ’s precious gift or you don’t.

    I think the issue that most people who genuinely do not have a horse in the race (they’re Christians and know that homosexuality is referred to as an abomination, but they don’t really have anything against homosexuals themselves, and usually are for legislation and policy that provides equal rights for gays) get hung up on is this: “Will my gay friends make it to Heaven? Do they have to ask for forgiveness? Is God angry at them?” Here’s my take on these questions. God wants faith–faith that He is God, that His love is pure, and that He is the Way. Acceptance of Christ into one’s heart is not synonymous with asking God for forgiveness. It is common, however, that accompanying the cleansing presence of Christ will come a deep, washing surrender of our desire to sin. We’re sorry for the harm we’ve done unto others; we seek forgiveness for having been so blind in the face of God’s now obvious instruction, but this admission can be the RESULT of inviting God in, and is not necessarily what He requires before He WILL come in. But the thing a thief, a liar, a murderer, and a homosexual have to do, at least once, and with sincerity, is to recognize God and to accept Him AS God. Whether God then slays their spirits, burns their sins out, or compels them to change is between that person and God. I refuse to comment on how God will receive any given individual. I am quite sure–no, I am CERTAIN!–that there are Christians who lie, and damn it, they’ll probably make it to Heaven. Is He pleased with them? Well, probably not with their lying. But unless they have repeatedly pushed Him away and denied His presence and His position in their lives, He loves them, as we would love our children, despite their poor behavior. Would He not love a child for certain actions MORE than he would not love them for a less bad action? I say no.

    And you?

  3. Humanity’s problem has always been that they try to make God in their own image instead of the other way around. Thanks for stating a biblical perspective. I do have gay friends that are precious people but they are willing to settle for less than God’s best for their lives. That’s sad.
