Recently,a US judge has overturned the Californian gay marriage ban also known as Proposition 8.
Proposition 8 seems to be based on the belief that same sex couples simply are not as good as opposite sex couples. This belief may be naturally true,but it is not clear whether the authors of proposition 8 made their decision based on the biological natures of both genders or only on moral disapproval of Homo Sexuality.But assuming their decision is more of a moral question, I am beginning to wonder if this worldview is a proper basis on which to repudiate the will of some members of the community.
Here is what I mean; much of the opposition to opening the institution of gay marriage comes from those who profess godlines or to be religious. These people also believe that we are created in the likeness and image of God and with FREE WILL to choose what is wrong or right.They also understand that we are all equal in the sight of God.But what if one is HS by nature (could be possible) just as one is male or female ; black or white-? When the church vehemently opposes same sex union and denies a gay person access to religious sacraments, is that not messing with humans free will that was granted to them by God? I think, the church’s role should be to teach what is right and what constitutes grave sin rather than impose its moral authority or will on others.
If we are all equal before God and He has given us free will to choose , why does the church discriminate and say 'either or else'? In principle ,I am against Gay practice and marriage, but I am discovering, I have no right to deny them their human rights as creatures of God.Do I sound stupid?
