I guess I’m not really surprised that North Carolina passed amendment one. What does surprise me is no one is upset about the idea of civil unions being banned as well. As a woman married to a man not in a church, not by a member of the clergy, not in the eyes of someone’s God, I am scared.
I am scared that one day my marriage will be considered against the law. I had a friend tell me on Facebook that I’m not married I’m in a civil union. No I have a marriage certificate thank you. I committed my heart and soul to my husband. We said vows we plan to keep the rest of our lives.
Marriage is between a man and a woman but how long until it’s only a recognized union before God? So unless I believe in your God I cannot get married? Marriage is So many things to so many people. There has been talk about just creating laws that give same sex partners marriage rights without being married. That’s not going to happen. Laws that are necessary to make that happen aren’t going to change anytime soon.
I find it awful that any one person believes that they have the right to tell me I’m not married. Or that I cannot get married. Allowing same sex marriage isn’t going to make homosexuality contagious. It’s not like people are going to say oh well now I can legally get married so I might as well be gay. That’s just absurd. It is no more chosen than I chose to be heterosexual.
The Bible says man shall not lay with mankind. But doesn’t it also say judge not lest the be judged? A sin is a sin in God’s eyes right? No one sin is worse than another? So do you judge your fellow man and commit a sin or do you allow your God to be the judge? I’m not good at quoting the bible but I know somewhere it also says that man looks at another mans appearance and God looks in a mans heart when it comes to acceptance. If you are denying, judging, hating, then what truly is in your heart?
