The Debate: The Bible and Gay Marriage
Where should we, as Christians, stand on gay marriage?
In the debate over gay marriage, opponents have many arguments that profess their belief that it should not be legal. These include many moral and religious reasons that point to a threat to the sacred institution of marriage. This debate brings up many questions. In an attempt to understand the issue, let's examine common arguments against same-sex marriage and why they may not stand up in modern America. Is there even a point to same-sex couples getting married?
Why Gay Marriage Is So Controversial in America
Senate action on banning gay marriage has become a priority because judges are redefining marriage as more than just the union of a man and woman as they allow same-sex couples to marry, the Senate majority leader said Sunday. He noted that Kerry was among 14 senators who voted against the Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by President Clinton, a Democrat. That is not why he decided to bring up the amendment on July 12 for debate.
Barack Obama 's decision to support gay marriage has led to a debate about how it may influence the presidential election and the future of gay marriage in the United States. But the underlying reasons why gay marriage is so controversial in America are being overlooked. While there is generally no consensus for or against gay marriage in other Western nations, the issue has far more political importance in America, where it is the object of an exceptionally intense debate. Only a few U. Multiple other states have passed constitutional amendments barring gay marriage, as North Carolina recently did.
