Homosexual Marriage Better Than Straight Marriage?
By Wayne Seaton

There are three basic arguments that make homosexual marriage a farce. First there is homosexual marriage is contrary to nature; second homosexual marriages are against God's design; and third it is against the purpose of marriage since they cannot produce children to carry on the species. Some of these three may overlap in certain areas, but these three make homosexual marriage at best a ridiculous experiment.

Homosexuality Is Contrary To Nature

This is an argument that should not really need much explanation, and which makes homosexual marriage ridiculous to any reasonable moral adult. Things just don't fit together properly in same sex marriages. There are physical differences that make the sexual relationship virtually impossible to have in any normal way. There is no anatomically compatible relationship that exists. Two males just naturally don't fit together. Two females for similar reasons just naturally don't fit together. This is part of the argument God makes through Paul in the letter to the Romans.

Rom. 1:25-26 "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error."

Men and women are just built by God differently. They are naturally different yet at the same time fit together perfectly. What one lacks by himself the other supplies. You do not normally find in nature a same sex relationship in the animal kingdom. It is simply not natural.

An article in the Politico Magazine the online version says this natural difference is what makes same sex marriages superior to the natural heterosexual marriages.

"Ask any husband and wife and they'll admit that marriage is hard-but social science is beginning to discover that part of the challenge of marriage stems from the fact that most couples choose to marry a member of the opposite gender. Mixing a man and a woman in a marriage, it turns out, makes a union harder.

As trite and overdone as the cliche "men are from Mars and women are from Venus" may be, it does contain a grain of truth: Men and women are fundamentally different in certain ways, and those differences can pose major challenges in straight marriages. Same-sex couples, by definition, don't face these obstacles, which is why recent research suggests that same-sex marriages aren't just equal to straight marriages: in important regards they are superior.

Now that the Supreme Court has decided that gay marriages deserve the same rights as straight ones, it's worth keeping in mind the findings of psychologists John and Julie Gottman, arguably the world's leading experts on what makes relationships work. They are finding that gay and heterosexual marriages share a lot in common in terms of why they thrive or fail, but on one of the biggest determinants of marital success-how couples fight-gay couples have an edge.

"They are," John Gottman told me, "a lot nicer to each other during fights." Some couples fight frequently and other couples avoid conflict altogether. The key distinction between couples who ultimately stay together and those who get divorced is not how often they fight, but how they handle themselves during conflict. And gay couples have a healthier fighting style than straight couples."

Homosexual Marriages Are Against God's Design

God created everything with its own mate. He created every male thing in nature with its own female counterpart. While this is an argument for the homosexuality being contrary to nature, since God designed nature it makes sense that same sex marriages are equally against both nature and God's design.

Gen. 1:26-27 " Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." God every beast of the field as male and its own female compatible to it. God considered it an abomination for men to have a sexual relationship as they naturally would with a woman. Our society has understood the shame of this sin ever since its founding for going on three hundred years. God made man and woman for one another and to seek to altar this is to go against God's will for man.

Lev. 20:13 "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."

Contrary To The Purpose For Marriage

Every creature in the animal kingdom has a male and female component so that the species can be perpetuated.

Gen. 1:28 "God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Homosexual marriages cannot produce children and cannot therefore care on the race. Same sex relationships cannot fulfill this purpose.
