Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.

I really don’t understand what all the fuss is about. I have no problem with people that have a sexual orientation different to mine. It really is none of my business. As for them wanting to get married, why not? Just because they are attracted to the same gender doesn’t make them bad people or people who deserve to be treated any differently to anyone else.

I have gay friends that are contractually married. So what? They are going to do everything married people do anyway. They will live together, they will have sex, they will love each other, they’ll fight, they may even adopt children because their situation doesn’t necessarily allow for them to have their own. They are going to join the workforce, contribute to society, pay their taxes, give back to their communities…they are normal people!

So…I don’t care whether or not they get married. In fact, I condone it. I am a religious person and I know that most churches have a problem with gay marriage and won’t allow a couple to get married in church. The Bible is open to interpretation, no matter what people say. What it does state clearly though is that you should love your neighbour, it does not specify you should only love him/her if they are not gay. It also says that you shouldn’t judge. Isn’t that what they are doing? Judging and discriminating?

Just like everyone else, gay people are responsible for their own soul salvation and it is nobody’s place to interfere with that. If God doesn’t condone homosexuality, then he will say so on Judgement Day.
