Same-sex marriage is morally wrong


Let’s look at issues the way they should be looked at; i.e., is what a person doing morally right or morally wrong, sinful or not sinful.

We’re not supposed to or are we capable of making internal judgements, but we are expected to make external ones. And when two women or two men want to “marry” each other we know, or should know, it’s morally wrong. It’s unnatural. It’s downright sinful. We know that they don’t have a “right” to get married, but an obligation to do what is morally right by not getting married.

That obligation is based on a strict moral code that in turn is based on God’s Ten Commandments. Whether a particular action is right or wrong, sinful or not sinful, is not based on popular acceptance, a dictionary definition or it’s now the time to do it. It’s based on what God has said, not the consensus of the people or what nine politically influenced bumbling judges have to say because God has already voted on the matter.

Sin might be “out” in this day and age, but it’s still very much in vogue with God and will remain so for the duration. Period. End of discussion.

Of course there will always be those who refuse to listen to God and tell Him where He can go with His Commandments, but by so doing that’s where they will find themselves the second they die. Surprise, surprise.

All this was basic knowledge when I was a boy growing up during the World War II. Homosexuals marrying homosexuals, you gotta be kidding? Yes, back then people had a keen sense of right and wrong.

But something happened in this country in the meantime. Maybe those old pulpit pounding, fire-and-brimstone sermons did the people a lot of good. They sure had a good effect on me. Maybe it’s time they were brought back, but I doubt very much if they ever will be.

A word to the wise should be sufficient: live the way God wants you to live or pay the price. It’s not optional, it’s mandatory. Do penance or perish. It’s that simple. Don’t make or accept excuses for alternative lifestyles because, like I’ve always said, no matter how you slice it it’s still baloney (sinful).
