My opinion on same-sex marriage.
I was raised that a marriage is between a man and women. I was told that being in a relationship that was same-sex you would burn in hell. Well, I know a little about my bible and I know that if your spouse, partner, or lover of same-sex as you, it does not mean automatic Hell.
What I have learned from knowing my bible a little better is that a same-sex relationship is a sin just like any other sin that we ALL do.
The reason I am speaking my mind on this subject is because it is part of my challenge to pick a fight and this is sure to get some to disagree or agree with me. The reason this is important enough for me to talk about is because it has not been long ago that my eyes were open to the bigger picture.
Imagine you are married and you have children. Imagine your spouse dies, the one that gave birth to them children of yours. Imagine someone coming a taking YOUR children and telling you that you have no rights to them, children! Just think about them poor babies that just lost their birth mother. Now they then lose the only other parent they ever knew. Well, my friends, I love children and I hate to see children suffer from unnecessary hurt. Who gives anyone the right to take a child from the other parent that has been there since birth? Why do people think they can tell you who you can love or not love? Why would it be ok to take children from another parent because the people who make the laws say they have no rights?
Now with that on your mind I really don’t understand how we tell someone who they can and can not love. I have been married for 21 years and I could not imagine someone telling me I can’t love my husband because he is 15 years older than me.
There is so much more to this then I am willing to write about but I am going to say this. I am not to judge, I can not tell a heart who to love or not love, I would never think I am better than someone because they love someone who is same-sex as them. God loves us all and a sin is a sin. I sin just like everyone else on this earth, so why do people think their sin is ok but someone else’s isn’t?
My point of this whole thing is, I don’t think it’s my business or anyone else’s business who someone loves. I don’t think there is any difference from one sin to another sin. I think same-sex marriage or relationships should be just like any other marriage or relationship.
I think everyone should be treated fairly and not because of who they love or don’t love. Open your eyes and look at the big picture! Open your eyes and think about all involved.
We are all people and we all deserve to be treated the same. It should not matter who we love, the color of skin, or anything else that make us different. Can you imagine if we all thought alike, look-alike and acted alike? Man, the earth would be one boring place. We are all different for a reason.
If you have say, 7 children, do you love your children different because they are different? I love all of my children the same and there is not one of them that is like the other. They are all different and that is what makes them-them. That is why they are their own person. That is why they have my unconditional love.

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave[a] nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
