I do my best to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church.
As a result, I believe that two men or two women should not be able to marry. (CCC 2357)
You might say that my view on marriage stems from “Hate.”
That’s not true.
My view on marriage stems from love.
A person isn’t going to go to Hell for being gay.
It’s what a person does as a result of being gay that determines where that person goes when they die.
And Jesus says to treat people with love:
Whatever you did to the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did to me. (Matthew 25:40)
What’s my point?
It’s because a person goes to Hell for what they do, not who they are, and the fact that Jesus says to love one another, that is why I say “I don’t think it’s right for a man to marry a man, or a woman to marry a woman.” (Ephesians 4:15)
I want you to be happy.
I don’t want you to face discrimination.
I don’t want you to be treated as less of a person because of your sexual orientation.
I want you to be treated as the children of God that you are.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)
But I feel I must draw a line in the sand somewhere.
I am reminded of these words from Spectre (2015):
C: “When are you going to realize you don’t matter anymore?”
M: “Maybe not. But something has to.”
In everything you do, keep trying to do God’s will, and I don’t doubt that God will bring you to the place that He wants you to be. Wherever that is.
