Homosexuals Have Rights Too

OK... I'll admit it... under Biblical law, homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else.

It's Biblical.

I have the right to marry a woman.  The homosexual guy does too.

I don't have the right to marry a man.  Neither does a homosexual guy.

See?  Same rights.

The homosexual community is clamoring for equal rights in name, but special rights in reality.

If homosexuality is a sin and legally-outlawable crime (which it is, Biblically speaking- Leviticus 18:22) then no one has the right to practice it.  This goes for every sin and crime- murderers, thieves, adulterers, they all have the same rights as anyone else.  To seek a special right to steal, kill, or commit adultery- if we're going to do that, let's at least call it what it is: special permission for the violation of God's Word- not equal rights.

This is not an issue of denying the right of marriage to some and granting it to others; it's a matter of defining marriage Biblically- one man, one woman- acknowledging that right, and acknowledging the wrongness of anything else.

Your point about biblical law is moot. This country doesn't follow biblical law. This is not a theocracy. The bible is not the constitution, and not everyone follows the bible or even believes in it. While you having faith and a "biblical worldview" is fine, but not everyone shares that worldview. Why are you trying to force people to live by religious beliefs that we don't have? I'm quite positive that you would not want to be forced to live according to religious beliefs that you don't have. Do you want to start reading the Quran? I doubt it.

Homosexuals do have rights. They do have the right to get married if their state permits it. It doesn't matter whether it's "biblical" or not. They're two consenting, unrelated human adults. That should be enough. Christians don't own marriage.

There was a silly man called Gabriel,
Who wrote a silly blog,
And he tells people what to do,
And what they are capable of.

He thinks men should be manly,
And boss around their families,
And women should go and cook over the stove,
And do what they're told.

What Gabriel says is true,
Because the bible says so too.
And Gabriel listens to his dad,
Because outside opinions are bad.

If Gabriel could only see,
Both genders are people too,
And people are all very different,
And he can't tell them all what to do.

Gabriel likes to go hunting,
And do push-ups or something,
And he has hypothetical kids and wife,
He really needs a life.

Gabe needs to lighten up,
It's getting rather odd,
Sincerely, kindest regards,
All the best, God.

Your conclusion does not follow from your premise. If you lived in an area where gay marriage were legal, you would have the right to legally marry a woman or a man, same as the gay man would. Same rights, not special rights.
