Promote Natural Marriage

This is "Promote Natural Marriage" point six in a six point case regarding the same-sex marriage debate. The case is outlined here.

Promote Natural Marriage - Point Six
Therefore, the law should promote natural marriage, and it should provide no option for government-backed same-sex marriage or civil unions.

I have argued that natural marriage is beneficial while same-sex marriage would be destructive. If you are still not convinced, consider this: What would be the effect on society if everyone lived faithfully in natural marriage? It would result in a dramatic reduction in crime, welfare, abortion, and child abuse. On the other hand, what would be the effects on society if everyone lived faithfully in same-sex marriage? It would be the end of society and the human race itself. While universal homosexuality, of course, would not occur, the two questions should help us realize that the two types of relationships can never be equated because they are not equally beneficial.

Simply put, homosexuality is not good for individuals or societies. And while governments cannot feasibly prohibit all negative behaviors, they certainly can avoid promoting those that are. At the very least, our government must avoid promoting homosexual behavior and same-sex marriage.

Promote Natural Marriage
Marriage is hard enough as it is in our over-sexualized culture. The media advertises instant gratification and mocks the ideals of natural marriage, making it more difficult for couples to commit to one another or to stay together once they do. The last thing we need is for the law to encourage the same kind of destructive behavior as well.

The conclusion regarding same-sex marriage follows from the case we have seen here. But why not accept the compromised position of “civil unions?” Because civil unions would still give government endorsement and financial benefits to a destructive behavior. Language manipulation will not change that fact. Renaming a bad law will not alleviate the negative effects of that law.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
