Why gays shouldn't marry

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 19 June, 2012 - 10:14 AM
Christian groups are stepping up their fight against gay marriage.

The Australian Christian Lobby has laid down what they believe are the religious and biological reasons why gay couples should never be allowed to marry. Listen to ACL's Jim Wallace here and have your say on his group's logic in the gay marriage debate.

Blog comments Your Say

  • I think gays should marry. Why should the Heterosexuals be the only ones to suffer?

  • Well said Black Jack (below) I agree with you 100%. It is interesting to see how the different religions make different interpretations of the bible to suit their way of thinking.

  • I apologize for an error in my previous post, I meant to say that the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy against god, not the only forgivable sin. It was a grammatical error.

  • Is there humour in religion?
    Any takers? Any simplicity about what makes us people and kind, or usually not?
    Surely there is more in and beyond religious dogma (now THAT is a movie: get it out or buy it, especially if your religiousity began with Catholicism) than persecution of the different and personal interpretation of "texts"?

  • why do religious people speak as if its their god given right to determine the way the rest of us 'pagans' must live,that we have to tow their line..religion has a lot to answer for as does the christian or catholic faith in particular..why are religious people always so one-eyed and narrowminded about their faiths,given that historically their holy tomes are interpreted to suit their own needs..nobody is telling those of faith how they must or musnt behave-maybe its time we did? or they could all be told to go stand in a paddock and go 'Baa-Baa' together..or they could do what they do best,fight and kill each other in the name of their gods! i mean really how do 2 people loving each other destroy the fabric of society and marriage-which is a construct, a glue,for governments to keep the wheels turning,and banks and mortgages and taxes to keep peoples slavish noses to the grindstone-for all people- regardless of faith,morals,or persuasions..we should be so lucky?

  • I am an Anglican, and I believe in marriage equality. Christ is the redeemer of the new testament, as is stated in the book of Hebrews, and we must abandon dead works, as Hebrews also says, to embrace the living god. This includes Leviticus, the only real place in the bible that homosexuality is banned, as an abomination and not a sin, you may note. However, Leviticus also bans tattoos and the consumption of shellfish, all of which have been forgiven historically, and dismissed as contextual laws, to preserve health, and reproduce to survive. Hebrews tells us they are dead works. Some then point to the story of Sodom and Gommorah, another misconception in the book of Genesis. The sins of Sodom and Gommorah are plain as day in the text - lack of charity towards one another, lack of hospitality and hardness of heart, an attraction to strange flesh, not one mention of homosexuality. As for unforgivable sin, there is only one forgivable sin, which is blaspheming the holy spirit. The final point in the bible which people confuse with a vendetta against homosexuality, is in Corinthians, where effeminate peoples will not inherit the kingdom of god. Another misconception; this is an English translation of the original Greek term, and it is a warning against all forms of prostitution and promiscuous sexuality, heterosexual references and homosexual references are found - but it goes on to say Christ, being the redeemer has even forgiven these sins. Those who oppose gay marriage do it for cultural misunderstandings, not at all because the word of god commands it. The word of god commands justice, love, and equality before his eyes. I would go by what the bible says, over an ill informed group of individuals any day.
