Gay Marriage- Digging Our Own Graves
A few months ago a friend of mine visiting here, was discussing with me, the political, social and religious issues in his native place. My friend boasted that Pentecostals, to which he belongs, do not get to the street to protest or to hold banner for any political parties. I asked him why you do not get involved in the social and political issues in your community. His reply was, “This will affect our comfort and ease of mind”. To not get involved in the social and political issues facing the community we live in, if it is due to concern for our comfort, is it not selfishness? Selfishness is Sin.
Recently I was talking to a priest and friend of mine about
the criterion used in declaring a person as a saint. The No. 1 reason is
standing for a public cause, even in the face of threat to his/her life.
Jesus says, “There is no love greater than giving his life for his brother”. In
the Second World War, Americans and British and others were ready to sacrifice
the life of their children for the sake of the freedom we enjoy now. Several
races and ethnic groups including mine would have gone to the Gas Chamber if
Hitler had won that war. When Hitler took one by one countries of Europe, the major powers were not ready to stand up
against it, considering it not their problem alone, or didn’t see the
consequences, or they didn’t want to get in to trouble with Hitler.
Recently we had the issue of a definition for a legal
marriage. By approving Gay marriages, we are digging our own graves. Gays
have succeeded in manipulating public opinion by depicting the problem as
biological, and that they have no control over it. Some came forward with
research studies to prove it (not considering all the variables involved in
it). If we take this argument, behavioral problems like prostitution and
addiction have to be accepted as genetic tendencies. Behavioral problems need
to be conditioned by disapproving such behavior. We are all conditioned as to
how to express our genetic sexual instincts. We are digging our own graves here
in adopting a different view.
Family is the basic unit of society. What type of children a
gay family can mould, and can we entrust our future to such citizens. Can we
live here with dignity? I can understand the concerns of parents of Gay
children. It is possible that one of my children can show Gay life tendencies
in the future due to exposure to them. Let them live here and keep a low
profile. They need not come to leadership positions in the community, and we
need not esteem or reward such behavior. If not we are digging our own
graves. The survival of our human species is in danger. A marriage is a union
between a man and a woman. Gay marriage is against Nature. If abortion is
killing, Gay life style also has the same result. Population growth can become
stagnant and decline in the long run. Once we legalize Gay marriages, even if
we want to we can’t take it back.
You might ask why Gay and Lesbian life is immoral. To answer
that, we have to consider the purpose of life. Science has nothing to say about
the purpose of life. We have to turn to religion, where science has no answers.
Before we proceed further we have to consider the age old question- Evolution
or Creation. The Truth is only one no matter what you believe. Science could
prove nothing so far. We have some theories that are the result of wild
imagination. We need more faith to believe these theories than the faith to believe
in God. God created this Universe with a purpose, and we have to turn to Religion
for the purpose.
If you take Theology out of Religion, all religions
teach basically the same about moral and ethics. All major World Religions are
against homosexuality. Moral, ethics, fairness and justice are foundations of
This life is not the end of it. If you indulge in such
sinful behavior (sin against God's natural laws), it affect your long term
future. There will be punishment for such sinful behavior. Our society will
decline and set. This is the lesson we learn from history.
Is it due to complacency, indifference or selfishness that
the majority not getting involved in issues that affect their and their
children’s lives here, and voice their concerns?
Our society is a large family. Just like in our own family,
parents won't allow child's all demands due to its consequence; homosexual
choice also can affect his/her future and other children's future in the
One danger in homosexual behavior is that my children can easily
get attracted to it by contact with homosexuals, and my ability to prevent it
is limited. I see my generations perish due to this.
Using drug is a choice that can destroy a person.
Destruction does not happen overnight. Can you foresee the effect of approving
homosexuality ten years from now, or twenty five years from now?
It is disgusting to watch them kiss in the public. They were
ashamed to show that off when society disapproved it. If it is legal, it will
be everywhere. We can’t live here in dignity. If this happens in a state many
might move to a state where it is not legal. If it is legal in all the states,
many might move with their family to a different country where this is not
legal. Our ability to raise tax dollars and investment can be at stake. This
has not happened yet as its effect is not yet felt here.
We are all citizens of this great country. You
have to live in it, and take care of it, and claim it as your own.
How you are going to claim this land for yourself? By taking care of its needs!
Are you involved in your community? We have a poor opinion of people who get
involved, and we call them politicians. Get involved in the Civic organizations
in your community- Home Owners Assoc, School Board, City Council, State
Legislature and Congress. Field candidates that hold the same values as you
hold, and campaign for them, and get out and vote for them. We need watchmen in
all these Civic Organizations. Some people call this politics. Whatever we call
it, we are meeting the needs of people and the generations to come. All the
hospitals, libraries, parks and public institutions of use we enjoy now are the
selfless work of some behind it. We remember them, and blessed is the memory of
Homosexuals have people in positions of influence and they
could manipulate the decision making process. Once a homosexual come to a
position of influence, he/she fill influential positions with their own. With
less than three percent of the population, how they managed to have their
agenda adopted by Democratic Party Platform? Democratic Party is being used as
a tool to get things from red glowing fire. In the name of being modern and
progressive, we are going down. It is a sign of end time that people feel pride
in things that are disgusting. Moving at this rate I am worried this will lead
to the decline of our society and future of our generations.
You might think that I hate Gays and Lesbians. I do not hate
Gays and lesbians. I really love them. But I hate their actions against divine natural
laws. In love there is rebuke and punishment. We punish our children with good
intentions. I love Gays and Lesbians. I like to see that they and their
generations have a good future, and are prosperous. It is your children that
keep your memory alive. So children are your reward in life. I like to see that
they have children that they can claim as their own flesh and blood to keep
their memory alive.

forward to your friends, and do whatever you can to prevent Gays and Lesbians
from conquering States and Nations that can endanger our existence as a species
