Should America Change The Laws of Mariage?

Any time a person writes an article about gays with opposite views such as those that are for pro-gay marriage, will close their mind, and accuse the writer of being homophobia, or Anti-gay.

That is why will share my beliefs and background. I was cursed in my childhood of being sexually abuse as adolescence through my teenage years. My sister and I were abandoned when she was three and I was four. I did not know I had a sister until I was in my thirties, and Idid not find her until I was in my fifties. My sister was crippled in a wheelchair.

I was raised in orphanages and foster homes with other children that were rejected and abused. The blessing of the horrible childhood is I was not taught to hate gays, or I did not listen.

The reason the males sexually abused me, was not because they were Gay; it was because they are angry, they have been hurt, or abused themselves. They need Psychological help. It is no surprise that I received a Master's Degree in Social Work.

I am an alcoholic, escaped into alcoholism in 1959 until Feb. 22, 1979. I just picked up my thirty three years sobriety coin.

Guess what Percentage of Americans is Gay

By: Jon Ponder | May. 28, 2011

If you guessed that 25 percent of Americans are gay, you would be wrong, but you would be in agreement with a majority of the country, according to a new poll from Gallup: Anti-gay activists debunk assertions that 10 percent of the population is gay. They claim it's more like two percent — which prompts the question: If there are so few gay people, why all the fuss? U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian. More specifically, over half of Americans (52 percent) estimate that at least one in five Americans are gay or lesbian, including 35 percent who estimates that more than one in four is.

30% percent put the figure at less than 15 percent. *The adult population of the United States is about 225 million. If a quarter of them were gay that would be 56 million people — that's a lot of gay people. That's roughly the number of Catholics in America. No way.

*United States Adult Population age 18-65 and over.  193,189,246

I personally do not object to how people live their lifestyle, I may not agree with it, but it is their lives.
"God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Part of the original that is attributed to Niebuhr translated into English.
I agree with Jon Ponder's opinion that it is not logical that one quarter of our population are gay.
                         (1/4) of US Population2010 193 189 246 = 48 297 311.5

But I can get away with saying that some of my best friends are gay, as can you.
Unless your view is such as Rev. red Phelps, a very Anti-Homosexual preacher at the Westboro Baptist Church, Topeka, Kansas; that flies the Canadian Flag upside down on top of the flag pole with the American Flag under it, also upside down.
He is the infamous preacher that condemns at American soldiers funerals. He is playing God. We all will find who is right when we get to the end of the Tunnel, my money is on God.
I realize that we as Americans has gone from a WE thinking, to it's all about ME, Country. But to change the institution of marriage for a very minority of people is ridicules. The Americans that choose to marry the same sexes has 26 States that sallow it. So they have over half of American to live and marry in, so be grateful, stop expecting the large majority of American to submit to the wish of a small population that is mostly like 20% of the populations, is pure ego and selfishness.
James Madison, who was the father of our Constitution, understood that men could not effectively govern themselves without a clear understanding of the Biblical doctrine of man's inherent sinfulness. As a result, he drafted the Constitution so that no one branch of government was given absolute control over the others and so that a rigorous system of checks and balances would protect the people from tyranny. The following provisions demonstrate this basic theological understanding:
In closing my personal point of view is, That American should not change the traditional laws of marriage that have been in existed since 1776, to satisfy the minority.
The Pro-Gay marriage people will not be satisfied with half the States allowing gay marriage. If you want your gay marriage to be legal, then move to all the States that have made gay marriages legal; it's not even reasonable for 25% of the gays of our 193 189 24 adult population, to expect 48 297 311.5; to change the entire laws, and views of the traditional marriage of a man and woman. The tradition of marriage between a man and woman has existed on earth for 4.4 Million Years, Scientists Say. But what do they know?  
I do know that a marriage between a man and woman has been around a lot longer than the Gays that started trying to change laws of American; about a decade ago.
Another irony about gays to change the laws on same sex marriage, besides being selfish, is that American started from people that believed in the Bible, and they want Americans to give up their belief in God's Laws, according to the Holy Bible they also believe in.

 So here is a simple analogy for the reader. Let's pretend that there are two gays and 18 straights all in a lifeboat. The lifeboat is built for 14. So they have to make a choice. Is it age, sex, children or religious believes? How will they decide who stays and goes? What four people must go?

A humanitarian, would make sure the woman and children stayed.
A homophobic would make sure any gays go overboard.
A "practical" person would have all draw straws.
The two gays would possible feel that the majority can go overboard, except them because they may feel unique and special.
That is exactly what the gays are asking is that the majority give up all their belief systems so they can justify their personal lifestyle. Keep your lifestyle.

Any judgment I make about the Gay life is when they want to change American religious or spiritual beliefs, as well as want Christians the tradition of a union of marriage between a man and woman.

Enjoy your lifestyle because many nations would kill you or cut off an arm or a leg or two, for being gay. I believe in a Higher Power that will judge my life. Be grateful the States still do not enforce their "Blue Laws" that are still on the books.

You hear how people are fighting for other's gay rights, I think many do it for their own gratification than those of others. It is so easy to say you're altruistic, but few do an honnest iventory of their motives. Like politician's do sound bytes that sound good that they think others want to hear.

10 Countries Now Allow Same-Sex Marriage

The first same-sex marriages took place in the Netherlands on April 1, 2001. The countries that followed were Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland and Argentina.

When we are disturbed, it is because We find some person, place, thing or situation -- some fact of our life -- unacceptable to us, and we can find no serenity until We accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
Dr. Paul Ohliger, author

This applies to both sides of an issue of change.

In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
