Re: “Weren’t we all created equally?” (letter, 5-21).
If one argues for the separation of church and state in the same-sex marriage debate, don’t mention the Bible. If you do refer to the Bible, please study enough to get it right.
Christ fulfilled God’s law given through Moses. It is not binding on Christians. His followers, though, should obey his teachings (Matthew 28:19-20). Christ taught that marriage was designed by God at creation to be between one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6, where Christ quotes the pre-law creation account in Genesis 1:27 and 2:24).
Yes, we are all created equal, but that’s not the issue and neither is love. The issue is the definition of marriage. In no society has a same-gender relationship been considered marriage. Biology makes same-sex marriage a laughable proposition. Love the one you love and do what you do in your bedroom, but do not insist that the rest of us recognize it as marriage.
