Hmm, maybe for the same reason the bar won't serve you alcohol at 20 years and 364 days? It is the law.

And once something passes a majority vote in a legislature, it magically becomes moral and right.

It's clear that they know this, but still rail against the reality. I made a similar point a bunch of pages ago, and received no reply.

If you don't want your particular brand of Christianity to be subservient to freedom of religion, then you're honor-bound to find another country to live in.
They know these things. They just cannot bring themselves to admit it.

Don't like same-sex marriage?

Don't get married to someone of the same sex.

How easy is that?

Jesus was God.. if a person has a spiritual father God , they are directed by the Holy Spirit to read the bible and find out that the act of having sex with the same sex is an abomination. God's words ..Having a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ is why Jesus came to mankind.

Also the sin of adultery, fornication and lust for a man or a woman in their mind is already committing sin as Jesus said. Not my words but the words of Jesus. There are many sexual sins. The bible describes them quite well as the sin nature of man was without the direction of God though most of the bible.

Even the natural man can discern right from wrong to an extent because God has placed a conscience in each of them.. but that conscience can become seared with desensitization. If that is the case, anything can be accepted in that seared conscience that has been altered by dismissal of anything being wrong with actions that are abhorrent or detestable to society.

The actions of people who call themselves gay are what defines their gayness.

Don't like abortion? Simple don't have an abortion! Don't like guns? Simple, don't buy a gun!

These issues are not black and white. It affects all of society in one way or another.
