People have their own beliefs and opinions when it comes to marriage. They respect ts sanity, its power, ad the things that it can provide to every individual. Because they believe that marriage is a bond that entitles the union between a man and a woman to become one in front of people and in front of God.
But today’s generation, we are trying to surpass not just the simple marriage, but also the cultures that we, Filipinos already have. Trying to change something that can totally make such a huge change of current or turn of waves in a normal passing flow of a river. That is how they are now creating a big issue or an argument in our society. And the main reason of this? Is none other than the same-sex marriage.
For this reason, I want to argue with this. I am opposing the same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage should not be approved here in the Philippines. About the LGBT community? I am not opposing them, but if it is about the same-sex marriage? It is a big no for us!
“Philippines is knowned to be ranked one of the most gay-friendly nation in the world, and the most LGBT friendly in Asia,” according to Wikipedia. But as what Manny Pacquiao have said before,”I’m against same-sex marriage because of what Bible says, but I’m not condemning LGBT.” This only gives its message the we, Filipinos, may support the LGBT community but not the same-sex marriage that they want to pursue.
It is clearly said in the bible that only a man ad a woman shall have the sanity and the power of marriage. As said in a bible, Leviticus 18:20,”Though shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind:it is abommation; Leviticus 20:13,”If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” See? It is clear that the bible’s totally contradicting the thing that they are now proposing.
Not only within that situation, in our life, it is natural to raise a family. But, for same-sex couples, what kind of family can they create? They say that there’s no difference as them raising their child. However, the pro-homosexual sociologists, Judith Stacey and Biblarz reported that it is claimed to be false. Why? Because children see a different environment that is quite different as what they see to other people. They see how other children has this mother and father figure, but what do they have? Either two daddy or two mommy? We must remember and put in mind this thing, a child needs a mother and a father figure as he or she grows old.
Same-sex marriage doesn’t only concern every individual’s life, but also their perception. Why? Try to think of it. As we are Filipinos, most of the people here believe the words written in the bible. Believers at the sanity of marriage between a man and a woman, and then, one day, this issue just popped up? What do you think will each of us think after the raising topic of this same-sex marriage? Isn’t it too contradicting our bible?
We accept the LGBT people, we do not condemn them. We accept their relationship in terms of civil union, but in terms of same-sex marriage? It is not just about what they say as equality. They say that they have the right to marry whoever they want or whoever they love. But, it is not just about equality. Human rights, every human has his own rights, but as we have the rights, we also have our own limitations. And for LGBT community? This doesn’t include the same-sex marriage.
Confusing, right? You sound so mean as you oppose this thing, but come to think of it, you are just looking out what’s the best. Some may already question their own beliefs and faiths due to this situation, asking if he or she is on the right track? Asking if he or she is doing the right thing?
Being one of the members of LGBT community is okay. It is not a sin, but proposing to have the right of marrying someone with same-sex? Why do they really have to hold on to it? Life has its limitations, same thing as human’s rights. As it is said in the bible, having the same-sex marriage is not appropriate, and that’s the only thing that you have to remember.
