Gay marriage is a sin
Debate Rounds (3)
"After waiting thirty-three days, she will be purified from the bleeding of childbirth. During this time of purification, she must not touch anything that is set apart as holy. And she must not enter the sanctuary until her time of purification is over." Or if you give birth to a girl 66 days
If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding.
I could go on and on with the things thee bible says. Just to name 10 more things. the bible says.
-If you work on the Sabbath you should be stoned to death.(Exodus 31:14)
-Don't pick up grapes that have fallen of the vine. (leviticus 19:10)
-Mixing fabrics in clothing. (leviticus 19:19)
- Planting different seeds in the same field. (leviticus 19:19)
-Eating fruit from a tree within four years of planting it (leviticus 19:23)
- Trimming your beard. (leviticus 19:27)
- Cutting your hair at the sides (leviticus 19:27)
- Getting tattoos. (leviticus 19:28)
- Cursing your father or mother. Which is punishable by death. (leviticus 20:9)
- Blasphemy. Again punishable my death. (leviticus 24:14)
The point of this is just because it's in the bible doesn't mean it's a good idea. Do you think all of these should be illegal. If you say yes your crazy. If you say no your cherry picking the bible. So you're taking the perfect word of god and cherry picking it.
As for saying they should be told it's bad and they will burn in hell. Well if your talking about parents teaching them that, it's allowed. I think that makes you a stupid parent but you're allowed to teach that. If you're saying the schools should teach that they can't because it violates the separation of church and state.
Also teaching kids that makes it more likely they will discriminate and bully LGBT people. Which has caused many problem including a high LGBT suicide rate. LGBT youth that go to school with a Gay straight alliance have a 16.7 attempted suicide rate and those who go to school without a GSA club have a 33.1 attempted suicide rate. LGBT people are also far more likely to say the don't feel safe at school at a rate of 22% versus 7% for everyone else and 90% of LGBT teens have been assaulted or harassed in the last year compared to 62% of non LGBT teens. So teaching kids being gays is wrong causes many problems.
Last point I will make is. Why is god the thing that created everything concerned with what humans do with there genitals. Watch Carl Sagan's cosmos and then ask why god who created all that cares what the semi- intelligent humans who live on a tiny little rock in the universe do with there genitals. To me this sounds more like a lie made up to control people.
I look forward to your response.
and of course the Holy bible
You didn't respond to mine. So I'll just add one more thing. Imagine same sex marriages where normal In this society and marriage between different genders was controversial like gay marriage is now. Imagine you meet a girl you really like you date for a year and you love her she's prefect for you and you want to spend the rest of you're life with her. You want to get married but you can't and you shunned by people who don't let you marry this women because of some random unproven belief they have and want to force on you. Would you like that? Or would you say. Hay I love this women and want to marry her and it's wrong for you to stop me because you disapprove of it. That's what's happening to same sex couples. How can you not support people marrying who they love?
