Sheesh. The gay marriage issue has even knocked Pope Francis’s election out of the news. Tuesday and Wednesday, the issue of whether gay people can be allowed to marry will come before the Supreme Court. Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people marched on Paris to denounce the French President’s bill to allow gay marriage.
What’s the big deal? If you’re not gay, what business is it of yours? That’s certainly the way we feel here. Marriage is a very serious commitment. Huge numbers of young people are choosing to avoid it, having children out of wedlock; over a million Baby Boomers are “living in sin,” choosing to cohabit outside marriage, typically (and rightly) to avoid compromising their childrens’ inheritance.
For gay people to wish to make the serious choice to marry, to make marriage vows to each other, is to us an honorable decision and should be respected. Who are the rest of us to refuse them their rights as human beings? How would we feel if someone told us we couldn’t marry, or live together, or have children as we wished?
Please, let’s stop passing judgement on gays and let them do as they please. The God who created them knows it’s no business of ours.
