Running Scared on Same-Sex Marriage

Pages: 1 2

Meanwhile, if we have an interest in more children in heterosexual households – which we should – then gay marriage, which represents the stamp of societal approval for homosexuality as morally equal to heterosexuality, will be a detriment to that interest.  Frum utterly ignores his children in his column about same-sex marriage (although he must certainly believe that his children are better off because they had a mom and a dad.)  But by placing homosexual couples and heterosexual couples on an equal plane, we now place homosexual parents and heterosexual parents on an equal plane.

Of course, all of these arguments have been the same since Frum was anti-same-sex marriage. So what’s changed?

Society has now bought into the leftist argument that you are bigoted if you do not accept same-sex marriage.  Americans now believe that standing against same-sex marriage is the same as standing against interracial marriage.

Once we step into a world where behavior is “natural” and therefore justifiable, we step away from personal responsibility.  No one can be held accountable for their actions – after all, our actions are biologically driven.  We can have the argument about whether same-sex behavior ought to gain societal approval, but that’s not what has been argued: instead, we’ve been bludgeoned into submission with the disreputable argument that sexual behavior is the same as race.

Bowing to that argument shows moral myopia on a grand scale,  David Frum is clearly suffering from that affliction, as are more and more Americans.  That’s why same-sex marriage has picked up momentum, and that’s why the argument for same-sex marriage is actually more dangerous than same-sex marriage itself.

    Hosea 11: 3

    It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, though he knew it not.

    The Lord has been teaching mankind all along how to walk rightly, justly and in goodness. Some, the discontented, may wish to view all good advice as 'merely religious' but they noticeably fail to see the plain common sense of it.
    At each step of our development, the Lord has met us at the place and understanding of where we were and are.
    There are wondrous things on the other side. Things that are not spoken about because we could not yet comprehend them. We still have a long way to go in advancement. We are still very young in the scheme of things.
    It is not a question of 'going all religious'. It is a question of……where does this path lead? Study history, have the vision to look ahead. It is a path of evil and desolation.
    In fact, it is an abomination of desolation.

    homosexuals make up LESS than 2% of the population.

    So WHY are we catering to sexual deviants that make up less than 2% of the population???

    Homosexuals just want special privileges.

    Sorry all of you sexual deviants,… NOT happening.

      Careful, voted against carter,

      Statistics also tell us that Jews make up less than 2 percent of the American population. By your reasoning, we should not give Jews any rights. But it is only Jesus who can condemn Jews, not you or I. We may rejoice in Jesus's wisdom, but only Jesus may render judgment against those who forsake Him.

        As Jesus was a very observant Jew, who would only do as the Father wished and directed, I think the Jews are more or less in the same observant pattern.
        The facts are, that things being as Jesus told us, then His wisdom was the Father's wisdom.
        The Gentiles have the Way given to them and the Jews have Torah.

    you need to explain to yourself how getting the government out of our lives so that we can again depend on ourselves and our neighbors instead of corrupt, ineffecient bureaucracies is denying ANYTHING to ANYONE!!! How getting gubmint even MORE involved in our lives will give ANYONE what they need.

    Frum is a jerk, suppposititious marriage is a joke and brings ridicule on to the
    prancing ponys of deviation. Silly little girlboys squeling "look at me, look at me"………duds.

    Wow… such 'Christian' comments… I'm sure Jesus would be proud of how well you follow his teachings to love and accept your fellow human souls.. :-/

  • Aaron

    Here are some scriptures on which those Christians who find it so easy to hate and condemn others,can dwell upon instead to truly follow Christ's message:
    Isaiah 56. God's welcome of foreigners and eunuchs into God's 'house of prayer for all peoples.'
    Book of Ruth and 1 Samuel 18 through 2 Samuel 1. A modeling for same-gender couples in the love relationship heralded in scripture in the stories of Ruth and Naomi (Ruth) and Jonathan and David (Samuel).
    Micah 6:8. The emphasis of justice in the prophets: "God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God."

    John 9. Jesus dissociates a human condition from a sinful cause when he declares a man was not born blind because of his sin or that of his parents, but so that the glory of God may be made manifest.
    John 4. Jesus reveals his messianic identity to the outcast Samaritan woman at the well who had had five husbands and was living with a man unmarried. She becomes
