-- Benjamin C. Cook, Kennewick
There is no such thing as gay marriage. It's an oxymoron at best with no real, or clear function, whether real or imagined. The Bible says, "all scripture is God-breathed." The word "all" means just that. If you have a problem with some scripture, you'll have a problem with the rest of it. If you don't believe in some scripture, then you don't believe in any of it. Isaiah said, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness."
The gay lifestyle is unnatural and gay marriage is an affront to all married people everywhere. It demeans, undermines, degrades and makes a mockery of the one and only true marriage and is a slap in the face to the union of one man and one women. It is the mother and father that has sustained us and populated the Earth and it is our sons and daughters who will grow up and continue on.
The gay lifestyle is described the Old Testament as being detestable. It is also found in the New testament in 2 Peter, Romans, 1 Corinthians, and also in St. Jude. These verses I might add, are not suggestions. However, we are commanded to love the sinner but hate the sin.
There is a creator God infinitely more powerful and more wise then all the power and wisdom that has ever been on Earth or will ever hope to be and there is a certain way that he has structured his universal creation. When that structure is interrupted it upsets the delicate balance that God alone has put in place.
