How the legalization of Gay Marriage reminded me that I am less than.

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were,"- Justice Kennedy.

It has been a year and a coupe of days since the U.S. Supreme Court decided the Constitution gave gays the right to marry.  For many conservatives and Christians, it felt like a battle was lost.  Of course there are gay affirming Christians that felt like this was a win for the gay community.  It became exhausting seeing all the rainbow Facebook and Instagram accounts.  I didn’t even want to address this topic because I just didn’t care, until I read Justice Kennedy’s explanation for the Judicial approval of gay marriage.

Before we get to it, I want to explain where I stand on this.

I believe that gay marriage is unhealthy and goes against the will of the Father for human sexuality.

I believe society needs to learn how to live with each other.  Sometimes we don’t agree on everything, and as Christians, we need to know that we can’t force people to live righteous lives.  That is up to them.

I believe anyone who pays taxes should have federal benefits and state benefits.  If gay married couples pay taxes, they should have the same rights as straight married couples.  

Politically, I support Gay Marriage.  

Spiritually, I don’t support it.  

Socially, if Justice Kennedy’s explanation is held as the reason for why Gays should have the right to be married, than anyone who holds his view has a horrible view of marriage.  

If you are a gay affirming Christian who supports gay marriage, I hope you don’t believe what Justice Kennedy wrote.

Here it is again.

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were,"- Justice Kennedy.

As I was seeing the response many Christians had concerning this topic on that Friday, I was a little shocked to learn not many people read or listened to the whole hearing concerning this legal battle.  And no one talked about this small little sentence.  

As a Christian, this sentence caused pain and sadness in me.  

First, that fact that Justice Kennedy says “No union is more profound than marriage,”  as a Christian, the most profound Union a human can have is with the MANGOD Jesus through his Church.  Unity in the Church is the most profound relationship any human will have on Earth.  

The Church embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family.  And lets not forgot how intimate and committed friendships can be! My God I love Friendship!

The fact that gay affirming Christians and non gay affirming Christians didn’t get upset about this makes me extremely sad.

What it points to is that marriage is the end goal for most humans.  

Christian and non Christian.

Gay or straight.  

But since I am a Christian and I am only going to address Christians, I am sad and angry towards Christians that we got angry and sad for the wrong reasons.  

The Church isn’t seen as the Body of Christ.  

Does this bother anyone?  

Dear gay affirming Christians, does this bother you that the Church isn’t the primary example of love on Earth?

Apparently marriage is.

What is your theology of the Church?

Also, what is your theology of Friendship? Of covenants that friends can make with each other?

Does friendship even matter to you?

Then, the next sentence goes like this,

“In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

Well, for us single folks, we can’t be greater than what we are now.

Which can I say is straight up/gay up.......

............fucked up.  

I want to argue against this idea Just Kennedy represents.  I know many Gay affirming and none Gay affirming Christians do believe in this idea, that marriage is the most important relationship.

Jesus says in order to be in HIS family, you need to do the Fathers will,  

What is more family than being in Jesus’ family?

What is more “profound” than that?

And Jesus requires his family to be the most selfless, loving, dedicated, loving family of all.  

As a single person, being in the family of Jesus is profound!

I become greater than what I was.  

That means, I am in a covenant with married folks, single folks, old folks, babies( depends if you are free will or not), anyone who does the Father’s will.  

Isn’t this exciting?  

I know this idea of love and sacrifice is different than what Disneyland taught all of us concerning "the one."

Marriage, love, commitment, cannot compare to what the Church is!!  

Married people can learn how to be married through the Covenant the Church has with Jesus!

So for you Christians who are gay affirming and none gay affirming that teach that marriage is the closest union humans will have with each other, please stop!

You are making me less.

You are excluding me!

As someone who struggles with homosexuality, it already is tough living in the Church, but bad theology of marriage drags me on the ground for miles and does more harm to me than my sins.

Please Stop it!

Loneliness is drowning a lot of us in America and your beliefs of “the one” is the main cause for that right now.

Marriage right now is an idol! It is dangerous!

It doesn’t matter what the hell an orgasm means.

What matters is what COMMUNION with Christ through the Church means!

The BLOOD of Christ is more Unifying than SPERM and EGG! SPERM and SPERM, and EGG and EGG.

More Unifying than two bodies having pleasure.  

Justice Kennedy,

YOU ARE SIMPLY WRONG.  

Stop leading Gay affirming Christians and none Gay affirming Christians to believe that Marriage is what you think it is.

Justice Kennedy, I think you should say this.

"No union is more profound than the Covenant Jesus has with the Church, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a new Covenant with Humans, humanity becomes something greater than once they were, they can love all!
