Response to OkState Newspaper

images What follows is an email I sent in to the O’Colly (the student newspaper at Oklahoma State) in response to an opinion article titled “Why getting rid of DOMA isn’t going to ruin your life” (title links to the original).  Who knows if it will be published, and who knows what the response to it might be…but I just can’t stand what is being pumped out without any thought at all.

And yes, much of this is similar to my blog post: “Bill Clinton and the Culture of Death

This is in response to Kim Hunter’s article on DOMA.  It’s clear she has not truly thought through many of the implications of her argument, as I suspect not many have.

Appealing to emotions, we’re told that her friends deserve a happy life and should be able to get married to whomever they want.  Really?  What if her friend wants to marry his dog and have sex with it?  Or an older friend wants to marry her 8 year old son and have sex with him?  Please! Somebody explain to me–in words that a simpleton like me can understand–how the logic does not follow?  What if it makes them happy?  What if you’re just being intolerant, bigoted, and hateful (trust me, the people over at NAMBLA think you are).  Come on Reason crowd.

She claims that homosexuals aren’t ruining the sanctity of marriage, people who don’t take it seriously are.  What if both are true?  How is this not fallacious?

Hunter goes on to create a likeness of God in her own image, asserting that God wouldn’t prevent a lesbian from entering heaven because she’s a lesbian.  Apply this now to the murderer, rapist, and child molester.  Sin and repentance doesn’t register on Hunter’s radar, but they do on the Bible’s.  If you’re going to bring Christianity in, at least try to be honest to the worldview, instead of importing personal opinion on a book that says, “God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones…men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.”  Homosexuality isn’t just a sin…it’s a judgment.

Hunter says, “We’re all God’s children; he loves us no matter what…He wants us to be happy…”  Verse?  We are not all God’s children, and he does not love us “no matter what.”  John 1:12&13, Hosea 9:15, Rom 8:14.  If you don’t accept the Christian worldview, alright, but to misrepresent it is dishonest.  And no, happiness is not the issue, holiness is; I’m betting the early church wasn’t too happy being fed to lions.

Please define marriage in a meaningful way.  DOMA makes sense because marriage is properly between two people (a boy and a girl) who can have sex and procreate according to a created order.  What homosexuals want is not marriage, and while it is likely they will get their “marriage,” it isn’t a recognized one by those who follow a Biblical standard.

Lastly, marriage doesn’t make sense in a Christian or evolutionary worldview.  Some evolutionists are sure to go along with it because they have no standard of objective morality.  But it does not create life, it does not create a “society”, it causes an obvious breakdown in the family, and it creates a dilemma in defining who can and cannot be “married.”  But who cares right?  This the society of abortions and homosexuality…have sex with whomever…no consequences, right?  I suppose you ought to hope so.
