UNDER THE FAMILY CODE, IT STATES:
'marriage is a special contract of permanent union BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN entered into in accordance with law for the establishment of conjugal and family life.'
THE SAID LAW IS VERY UNEQUIVOCAL REGARDING THE SEX OF EACH PARTNER.
the couple must be a MALE AND A FEMALE.
that law is in accordance with the law of god regarding marriage.
GENESIS 2:24
'THAT IS WHY A MAN WILL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND HIS MOTHER AND HE MUST STICK TO HIS WIFE AND THEY MUST BECOME ONE FLESH.'
GENESIS 1:28
'....'BE FRUITFUL AND BECOME MANY...'
THEREFORE, THE PROPOSED SAME-SEX WEDDING IS NOT ONLY A VIOLATION OF MAN'S LAW BUT ALSO A VIOLATION OF GOD'S LAW.
homosexual acts and practices are condemned by god.
HOMOSEXUALITY PER SE IS NOT CONDEMNED BY GOD.
GOD IS A REASONABLE AND LOVING GOD.
WHAT GOD CONDEMNS IS HOMOSEXUAL THOUGHTS, ACTS AND PRACTICES.
homosexuality is an abnormality brought about by imperfection.
nevertheless, it is not justifiable for a homosexual to succumb to his weaknesses.
GOD GAVE US REASON TO ENABLE US TO RESTRAIN SINFUL THOUGHTS, ACTS AND PRACTICES.

ROMANS 1:26-27: 'that is why god gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature, and likewise, even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.'

1 CORINTHIANS 6:9, ' what! do you not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit god's kingdom? do not be misled. neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, NOR MEN KEPT FOR UNNATURAL PURPOSES, NOR MEN WHO LIE WITH MEN,'
GOD IS VERY ABSOLUTE OR CATEGORICAL IN HIS CONDEMNATION AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL ACTS, THAT IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY HE DESTROYED SODOM AND GOMORRAH.
IMMORAL HOMOSEXUAL MEN AND WOMEN COULD ALWAYS DO WHAT THEY WANT BUT IN THE END GOD WILL GIVE THEM THEIR DUE!!!!
