Many countries are following America's lead on same sex marriages. The UK, Sweden, Denmark and Germany have already established same sex marriage laws.
How do these laws affect Coptic Christians? Marriage, after all, is a sacrament.
How should one reconcile his or her religious convictions with their innate need to be patriotic to their country?
What is the main difference between same sex unions and marriage???
My understanding was that same sex unions was what the government recognized - marriage was what the church recognized.
Are these so called equality laws intended to just antagonize religious institutions?
What value added feature is there in same sex marriages that same sex unions did not have?
Are you aware that your kids, whilst growing up in a county that has this law, will be taught at a young age that 2 men or two women can also get married and adopt to have kids? Are you all ok with this??
Did you know that it will be a crime to teach your kids that same sex marriage is wrong ? That's discriminating.
I'm surprised a bit by Obama - he stated before his first election that marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. But throughout his tenure , he has been the strongest advocate of same sex marriage.
Do you feel disenfranchised with your country over this?
How can you raise kids with the same Christian values you were raised with?
