Since my email is broken, I thought I'd write about gay marriage.
I know I am a little late to the discussion. But, here's the truth:
God loves us all the same. He does not care if we white or black or purple. He does not care if we like blondes or red heads or boys or girls. He does not worry himself with who we take to the prom or if we wax our eyebrows. And frankly, while God prefers us to be God-loving, neighbor-loving, honest, sinless people, He knows as well I as do: That ain't the case. God knows we are disasters as people.
Being Gay, however, is not one of those sins or disasters. How could loving someone ever be a sin? Love is a beautiful thing and you know what, I don't know that God even particularly cares who we love; just that we love.
God has a lot going on.
So, of course Gay Marriage should be legal. Love is love. Marriage is marriage. Marriage is also a legal state that provides two committed individuals certain rights and protections. It is for people who love each other. Two people. A man and a woman. A man and a man. A woman and a woman. Just people.
I have no idea why North Carolina thinks they can hate and still claim to be part of the Bible belt. Frankly, if you don't support gay rights or gay marriage or the idea of being gay, then don't be gay. Don't go to your cousin's gay wedding.
But, don't you dare tell two people in love that their love is not good enough, that their relationship is not worthy and that God loves them any less than He loves you.
Because, my friend, that is a lie filled with hate and ignorance and spite. And God does not abide hate.
God loves us. He loves churches filled with joy. I am pretty sure He loves a good wedding. No matter who is standing at the altar.
