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.
