Arguments Against Gay Marriage In The United States

Arguments against gay marriage are many throughout society, in that it has suddenly been thrust upon the country by the Supreme Court of the United States.

A cake shop was sued because they would not bake a cake for a gay couple, for religious reasons. A clerk in Kentucky went to jail because she would not sign a marriage license for a gay couple because by doing so she would violate Kentucky state law.

If fact just because the Supreme Court of the United States stated that they would recognize same-sex marriages as valid, does not make them valid under the constitution. The Constitution makes no mention of anything on moral grounds, nor does the Bill of Rights.

It is incumbent upon the Congress of the United States to make law. So when people say that the clerk in Kentucky needed to obey the law, they are mistaken because there is no law that says same-sex marriage in the US is valid.

We do have language in the Constitution that we shall be free of a tyrannical government, and we shall have freedom of religion, so how can people be sued and thrown in jail because they follow the principles of their religion?

Another factor is that the Bible calls homosexuality an abomination unto the Lord (Leviticus 18:22) in the Old Testament and Romans 1:26-27 in the New Testament the same explanation is given.

If there is any indication of how God feels about homosexuality, in general, all we have to do is consider Sodom and Gomorrah, where he obliterated whole populations of homosexuals because of his disgust. People say that the Bible is myth, but they have difficulty explaining how modern archeology has turned up evidence of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah as well as evidence that the remains of a huge army of ancient Egyptian origin have been found at the bottom of the Red Sea.

In general, most non-gay people simply look at same-sex marriage as an exercise in futility, as the practice is just not natural. Plus the fact that it a "tail wagging the dog" syndrome since such a small proportion of the population claims to be gay compared to straight people.

Most straight people feel that the gay life is unnatural, and they should just leave everybody alone if that is how they want to live.
