I was recently criticized for my view on Marriage Equality in this country. The criticizer was your stereotypical Christian views and responses. I won't post exactly what she said but it was to the effect of "Marriage is ALWAYS between a man and a woman","Marriage has ALWAYS been secular","I don't hate gays but they should not be allow to have marriage".
My response. By the way, she had nothing else to say:
The government decided to define a legal
contract binding two individuals together as "marriage", thus granting
those individuals over 2000+ rights. The government could have called it
"Legal Partnership" and it would still grant the same rights. The
government has an obligation to be fair, unbiased, non-discriminatory
and have separation of church and state. What the government defines as
"marriage" has no bearing what so ever
on religious organizations, what they believe or what they practice.
Thus should be the same the other way around.
mandated that interracial couples could not be married, and they were
obviously wrong. The same goes for this situation. While the term of
"marriage" may be religious when used within the church, as to defined the
christian ceremony of marriage. The government does not impose any such
belief and only defines it as two persons linked together legally.
Like it or not, this is the NEW civil rights movement. Get over the
fact the the government calls this "marriage" because they do not care
if it is done in the Christian faith, Muslim faith or any other for that
matter. All the government should care about is that two legally
eligible consenting adults wish to be legally linked and have the same
rights as others who have engaged in such a contract.
