Moral vs. Immoral

Well Mr. Fischer you are at again; ranting against homosexuality and what marriage is. Your latest rant stated "Because we have God's perspective, we have God's Counsel, we have God's wisdom and that trumps man's wisdom." Well correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't that perspective/wisdom defined by man? For me this is where your argument fails. Even if I concede the fact that there is a God who created the universe and watches over us and that the Bible is their knowledge. This Bible was written by man and translated by man over thousands of years. By your own admission man is flawed so please explain to me how this perspective/wisdom then is not flawed if it was recorded by a flawed species?

I'm sure you will say that when these words were written said individual was being guided by God's wisdom. Let's say I concede that point as well. So the very first Bibles were 100 % guided by God. However these first Bibles as I have already stated have been translated again and again over thousand of years. So are you saying that EVERY single person that has translated every single version of the Bibles has been guided by God? I'm sorry that just does not seem possible; because if that was the case there would not be so many conflicting translations and meanings of what God's knowledge is. So please then which version of "God's perspective, counsel and wisdom" is correct?

I'm sure you will say yours is. Then explain to me what makes yours any more correct than the pastor or preacher who say God loves all, including homosexuals. Or why we as a society can pick and choose which passages of the Bible we can follow and which ones we can't? If we follow your logic than EVERYTHING in the Bible should be followed no exceptions, yet I'm sure I don't need to point out to you the many "exceptions" that have been made due to how the world has changed over time.

You have also said "All men are created equal, but nobody, nobody, nobody is born gay....Nobody's born that way!" This along with the statements in the beginning infer that I chose to be gay which by your line of thinking would mean I chose to be immoral. I take great offense to this because that would mean that my parents did not instill a sense or right and wrong/moral and immoral in me. This couldn't be further from the truth.

My parents raised me with an extremely strong sense of right and wrong. They also raised me to be true to myself. Do you honestly think that I would choose to be gay if it was immoral? There is no way I could. My sexuality was and has never been a choice and is not immoral. Who I love and am attracted to is such a small part of me, it does not define my sense of right and wrong. For me I'm doing what my very religious parents taught me and that is being true to me.

It's at this point I'm sure you would more than likely go into comparing me being gay to some one who murders, or some other far fetched comparison, and what if that is being true to themselves. Well the quick and easiest answer to that is me loving my husband does not affect anyone but him and me. We aren't harming anyone as in murder or what ever out there comparison you would use.

Also me wanting to marry my husband doesn't affect anyone else either. Yes you will say we are redefining what God's version of marriage is. Well sir that definition has changed over the years just like which passages from the Bible are followed and which ones are not.

Isn't it arrogant of people such as yourself to assume you know what God wants for us? Let's be honest God and his plan is a mystery and maybe all of this is his way of testing us, especially people like you, if we truly understand what they are all about. To me God is about LOVE and ACCEPTANCE so if we would go to the pearly gates tomorrow I have a feeling I have a better chance of getting through them than you. I'm not the one who is using God to preach hate and intolerance, you are.
