Should homosexuals be allowed to marry?

Jesus replied. “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:6-9

The showdown to this question pits two opposing rights:

What's biblically right and what's a right according to the state.  One side is a MORAL RIGHT and the other is a LEGAL RIGHT.

In Mark 10, Jesus defined marriage as one male to one female.

Homosexuality is a sin according to Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:26-27, 1 Timothy 1:10.

So homosexual marriage does not fit the Biblical criteria of what is acceptable and right.

But homosexuals do have legal rights in our world today:
  • Many states offer rights to partners for legal and medical reasons.
  • It's legal to live with whoever you want.
  • It's legal to have sex with whoever you want as long as they are of age and express consent.
  • It's legal to be whoever you want without any prejudice shown towards you.
While homosexuality is not biblically right, it is a legal right. 

Is denying a homosexual’s right to marriage, denying their right to "love"?  No.

Is denying homosexual marriage denying their right to be homosexual?  No.

Why do homosexuals want the right to marry? Why do they need it?  Is really something missing from their lives?  Does marriage mean "true love"? 

Marriage complicates things, especially with divorce.  They already have the right to be homosexual in the United States, why do they want more?

If a country allows homosexuals to marry, we have moved the line of moral definition of marriage that has been in place for thousands of years.

Then…what's next?  Can we allow men to marry 9 year old girls?  How about their dog?  How about having 10 wives?  How about marrying your sister?  Your mother?  It's just a matter of time when all of these groups will begin to cry for their rights.

Once the line moves, everyone wants it to move further.

Homosexuals want to be accepted in the mainstream so they push for marriage so their sin can look RIGHT. 

They have the right to be homosexual in this world today, but marriage will never make it right according to the Bible.
