Yes or No to same-sex marriage?

I am sadden of the news regarding legalization of same-sex marriage in California. Even President Barrack Obama supported it, I am deeply worried of whats next after California. I have my reasons to object the legalization and gays and lesbians have their owns reasons too to support it. Read on:

Gays and Lesbian Reasons to YES to same-sex marriage:

1. They said Gay and lesbians marriage is worth because of love.
2. Gay and Lesbian marriage decrease divorced rate? - According to fasttopten.commore than 50% of married couples in the United States get divorced. Allowing gays the opportunity to get married will increase marriage rates because less couples will get divorced due to incompatibility or infertility.
3. Because Gay Marriage is already a reality- Based on statistics in US, millions of gay partners already practice monogamous, loving relationships.
4.Separation of Church and State - This major reasons that gay marriage is currently illegal is due to the religious interpretation that "homosexuals are sinners." They said legalizing gay marriage will have no impact on religion  and just as religion should not have any impact on the issue of gay marriage.
5. Social Acceptance-  Legalizing gay marriage will help to establish a social norm that includes and respects homosexual lifestyles.

 Reasons to NO to same-sex marriage:

1.No love - I am sorry to all who would not understand my thoughts, but how can someone call Love to a same-sex partner.
How can you give love to marriage? Biblical speaking, marriage is the lifetime union of a man and a woman (Ephesians 5:23-33.) Satisfying each other in love, in building family and sex? Forgive me but I cannot picture a woman to woman sex or a man to man sex.
2. Divorce rate is not reasons to allow same-sex marriage- How easy for others to blame the divorce rate to have positive outlook on same-sex marriage. It simply no divorce rate if the law only listen to Bible that no man and woman or married couple be separate by man. Now they also want a law to approve same-sex marriage. Why don't they just fix the law on marriage. No to divorce, No same-sex marriage!
3. Reality of Gays and Lesbians relationships- I simply believe the word from the Bible: God created a man in his own image, in the image of God he created him male and female he created them (Genesis1:27).  It's clear to say that there should not have relationship between same-sex other than friendship.
4.There is separation of church and states in this matter - Because why would church give a big deal to a matter that it is not to be meant, even in time of Jesus. Christians and  Catholics alike known the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. God hates homosexual sins that  controlled the city so he destroy the whole city.
5. Same-sex marriage is a sin -Leviticus 18:22  describes that homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Homosexual desires and actions is shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent (Romans 1:26-27). Homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God (1Corinthians 6:9) 
So, stop the debate homosexuals “marriage” is not pleasing to Gods eyes.
6. Social Acceptance- I know someone who is gay, he do what he needs to do to  contribute good to society, to his family and friends.
It is not true that lesbian and gays has no social acceptance nowadays. I know the society has accepted everyone man, woman, lesbian and gay. It depends on how you would like to be treated as persons.
If you want to be treated as no body or a persons of no value act like no value. If you want to be respected as a person act as a person with dignity and value, but be married with same-sex is too much for social acceptance.

How about you do you approve same-sex marriage?

I'm actually on the neutral side. Some of the points were considerable. However, it is not about the bible anymore. What I mean is, we are in the 20th century where all is digital, and we cannot control the feelings of anyone to choose who they will love. What I'm pointing is that we should just accept what has been approved. After all, we cannot change what has been already done. Even if the DOMA weren't struck down, we can't change the fact that same-sex couples will still exist. Great information though. Cheers!
