Religion and Same Sex Marriage

It is true that if people of the same gender want to marry, the legal concerns carry more practical weight. Among some couples however, the religious component of the issue also matters. What does religion have to say about same sex marriage?

Religious Views

The three biggest religions Christianity, Islam and Judaism have traditionally been against same sex marriage. At first glance then, religious groups may seem more opposed to same sex marriage as the more flexible legislatures. That is why it may come as some surprise that certain groups no longer carry the traditional religious view. The Jewish conservative tradition, the Unitarian Universalists General Assembly and some Lutheran groups selectively support some aspects of same sex marriage.

The bigger Christian groups and the more vocal ones have made their opposition clear. The late Pope John Paul II in the Pontifical Conference of Families has made the Catholic Church’s stand on the issue clear. In his own words, “the union between man and woman is the only true one in God’s eyes.” Marriage therefore is an institution ordained by God and is the voluntary union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others for the purpose of loving and supporting each other and propagating the human race.

If the Catholic and other Christian faiths are to be understood as truly Bible/ scriptural based then it is also enough to point that the Bible has several references in Genesis, Leviticus, Corinthians and Romans which point out homosexuality as unnatural and abhorrent to God.

Proponents of same sex marriage however, seek to debunk all religious arguments stating that Biblical references have been taken out of context and thereby misunderstood. It has also been pointed out that procreation, as a point of argument is also equally moot as its legal argument counterpart since even the Catholic Church through its Humanae Vitae recognizes the necessity of family planning through natural means.

The Catholic Church has also been accused of promoting the concept of complimentarity in marriage which delineates the differences between men and women. Critics say that marriage should be about mutuality instead, in which case, couples are called to share what they have in a loving, supportive relationship.

Religion and Homosexuality

No single religion can speak for all the other religions of the world. Nonetheless, it is clear among some religions like the Catholic religion that they do not discriminate against homosexual individuals.

The Catholic Church has made it clear that they accept that homosexuality may be a natural gender inclination. Hence, homosexuals must be embraced and accepted. Homosexuality per se is not wrong. The church however, condemns homosexual acts. Homosexual acts are what are considered immoral. The Catholic Church therefore opposes same sex marriage because it presupposes that married couples engage in sexual acts.

Conclusion

While a religious marriage does not carry the same economic benefits as a civil marriage, its impact and significance is not lost on the devoutly spiritual. It is perhaps in the knowledge that there is a God who accepts you and supports your decisions that makes all the difference.

    Same sex marriage should be allowed in the united states because although some religions don’t accept it, there are plenty who do. And to say that Christianity is the only right religion and therefore gays are an abomination is complete ignorance. Even if you don’t approve of what they do, there is no reason to not treat them like regular human beings. If you are bashing gay people for being anti-Christian, then you should read some more of your Bible and maybe you’ll figure out what Jesus really wants of us.

    No one has the right to impose rules on anyone else simply because of something they perceive to be a moral injunction mandated by the Bible. Not all world religions have a problem with homosexuality. Many religions celebrate gay relationships freely and would like to have the authority to make them legal marriages. If one believes in religious freedom, the recognition that opposition to gay marriage is based on religious arguments is reason enough to disregard this argument. As a woman of faith, we should all be aware of the fact that “God is in every man” and we should spread the word of God by showing compassion and understanding towards all mankind despite their differences. At least that’s what I was taught.

    You guys are not going to listen to anything i say, because of your religious beliefs, but i thought i would post them anyway. you say god created adam and eve. Did god not create homosexuals? I mean if you look at the facts scientifically you might find that being homosexual is not a choice….. hmm. Or are you so brainwashed by your religion that you refuse to look at any scientific evidence? Also does gay marriage really invalidiate a straight marriage? i am curious how exactly would gay marriage affect you? I have known many gay people through out my life and i can honestly say that in no way are we being morally correct by denying them thier freedoms. If you believe being gay is wrong, you are simply not listening to your common sense. There is no need for religion anymore we live in a time where we can explain our upbringing and human psychology through science. Maybe humans are the highest form of being has that ever crossed your minds. I am all for being down for your believes but when it hurts other people it is obviously a error in judgement. Be open minded! there is no proof that religion is real at all. and if god is real why would god punish you for questioning his authenticity. i mean he has left us with little proof of his existence. i personally believe that god is not assoicated with human affairs. thats like me being personally attached to an ant farm. it just doesn’t make any sense. state and religion is seperate for a reason. sorry to break it to you but Religion is man made

    god created me right?
    he also created the person I feel in love with right?
    and he also created love?
    and it was him that made us fall in love.
    So why does it matter if we are the same sex?
    love is love.
    no one chooses it.
    Cause if they did.
    I wouldnt chose this…

    It’s great to see more people for same sex marriage than mindless, brainwashed people against it. I found this sight because I am writing a paper about the stupidity of people who don’t accept gay marriage. I don’t think there is a God that would be that cruel to allow us to love who we want to love and then send us to hell for it, if there is, I would rather be in hell anyway, because I wouldn’t want to ever meet his dumb ass. Love who you want to love, be who you want to be. Quit being so judgmental!
    And I’m not even an angry lesbian, I’m getting married to a MAN October 31st of next year, so all you religious people can go to hell if you think it’s just gay people who believe gay people should be able to get married.

    Christians (and others) listen up. Do you not realize that being anti-gay you are also being anti-christs ? Jesus’ true liberal message was to grow with the changes. He is living proof that laws become less discriminating and excepting with time. The time is once again here, let Him do His job. Jesus is trying to make a comeback and you yourselves are fighting Him. He was trying to teach us how to love and respect others, that we all can reach the Christ conciousness. If you don’t change direction and trying to fight Love….you yourselves will distroy your blessed religions.You must learn the true difference between LOVE AND LUST…..AND ALLOW OTHERS THEIR GOD GIVEN FREEWILL TO DO THE SAME.

    First of all for all of you ignorant people out their their are thousands of scripture demoting gay acts. Secondly marraige itself is a religous ceromony. Third by allowing gay marriage you are forcing churches to go against their religon, by the way that illeagl Freedom of Religon.

    I am a straight, open minded, yet religious person. I understand the need for the gay community to be accepted. America started because people were searching for religious freedoms, and here we are doubting the need to allow gays their sexual freedoms. I have many friends and some family that are homosexual, and still I feel that same sex marriages carry more weight that a simple union of two people who love each other. If that were all that homosexuals wanted, I would support allowing them their freedoms because God gave us our free agency! But in the same breath, allowing same sex marriage opens the door for loosing our freedoms as people who don’t agree with that lifestyle, whether we are tolerant or not. Just as homosexuals should have the freedom to believe what they will, the rest of us should have the freedom to not be forced to teach your lifestyle to our children or be inundated with materials, media, etc. that are contrary to our beliefs. So as you feel you should have your freedoms to live your lifestyle, we should have ours to live without it. Will it really stop with just marriage? Or will it turn out like it did in Massachusetts, and our children be forced to read books about homosexual couples? The minority is asking the majority to be tolerant of their lifestyles… OK. But should we have to accept it into our lives as well. Please allow us the same freedoms you are asking for. You be free to live with your choices and we be free to live without them. Doesn’t that sound fair?

    WOW- Disguesting. How dare you type the phrase, “I would support allowing them their freedoms…” and then acknowledge that the freedoms were GOD given. Who the hell are you or anyone else to take our freedomst away- for any reason. YOU apparently know better than GOD. When women won the right to vote, the old white men in Congress did NOT give them anything- they stopped blocking what was rightfully theirs. What freedom do you lose if I get married? YES! As the Catholic and Jewish religions have acknowledged, we were created by GOD this way and your children WILL have to read about it. Do you really think children reading about it can turn them gay? You can’t be that ignorant. And, if GOD created us and what GOD creates is perfect, what is wrong with your child if he is gay? Your arguements are hogwash.. they don’t even follow logically.

  13. WOW

    On January 20, 2009 at 1:04 pm


    I see how your can twist what I wrote to say that “I”, one person, can think that any one person allow or disallow you freedoms. as I stated before… YOU ARE FREE to choose!! But marriage outside of a religious ceremony is a LEGAL freedom. Which (as women voters did) is earned by winning over the majority. You can be gay all you want to be, but why force those beliefs on others? Just as I would not force my beliefs on you. Separate church and state, sexual orientation and state as well. Your sexual orientation is not a race like African American or Asian American or Hispanic American or Caucasian American that is taught in school. I do not suppose to shelter my children from the science of what you say is how God created you, in that way knowledge is power. However they do not need to be forced to read any other stories about it either. Teaching homosexual lifestyles in school is like teaching Christianity, Judaism, Muslim, Mormonism…etc in school. Forcing people to believe the same as you is why the crusades failed. If you want the “average voter” to vote to help you achieve the rights you are fighting for, shouldn’t we be assured that we can keep our rights intact as well? If we fight for the freedom of religion, then turn around and force everyone to worship the same… is that really freedom? Would you like to HAVE to learn Jehovah Witness teachings in school? Religion and homosexuality and many other topics should be left to the choice of the individual whether they want to know more or not. I am not sure why you are being hateful to me… I do not give the rights you are asking for, but the whole of voters do. I am telling you, I, personally would be willing to support your cause if you could assure me that my LEGAL (not the God given ones) freedoms would not be compromised. I would add my voice to the strength of the many that are already out there, (remember “the Power of One”). You would win over a lot more people if you weren’t so antagonistic. Perhaps you are so used to being attacked that you can’t see when someone wants to be on your side. What does your right to marry whom you please have to do with what my children learn in school? It should have nothing to do with it!!

    On January 30, 2009 at 3:53 pm


    It’s too bad this discussion about religion and homosexual view points has had to turn into an Hispanic name calling fest. I mean if you really feel that way, shouldn’t you just come right out and say it in English? Or are you too ashamed of your foul language to write it so everyone can read it… not just Latinos? If homosexuals have stopped hiding in the closet, shouldn’t you stop hiding behind your poor grammar?

    One question I have is : Can two people of the same gender/ SEX produce children. having Gay and lesbian marriages decrease’s population. Its not right in the sight of god or man. if gay and lesbians take over who is going to carry on our legacy? who is going to be the next generation? what is going to happen to mand kind?
    you tell me cause i really don’t know when did humans get so stupid to rely on science whic is reason versus doubt. where is our tradition , where is our belief system, hope and faith. who made us where is the great god who was there and still is before science has turn us into idiots and fools.

    i think that it is abnormal to be gay, coz each and every living human waz born straight, so why gay ? where did it come from? this is unlike race, a man or a woman born latino, black or whatever. that comes from nature but it abnormal to wake up one day and shmelessly say you are gay or lesbian, because i believe it is what you adapt for your self and it is a crazy choice. ladies and gentle men, my conclussion here is that being homosexual or lesbian is a mental affection and needs to be treated with an immediate concern. these people needs our help. pls i am shouting out loud THEY NEED OUR HELP dis is ABNORMAL !!!

    I feel that people need to stay out other peoples business. why would it concern someone that has nothing to do with the relationship. And yes God did create man and women, but he also gave us a brain to choose what we want. And if it such a bad thing then why is the idea of being BI, or Gay exists. who are you to tell me what is right and wrong i will decide that for myself… i dont judge no one.. you dont know me you dont know my trials and tribulations… so all you people that waste your time tryna convince people how wrong it is how bout you worry about tryna find that one person for you dont be mad cuz i did… cuz if i see you you wont have nothing to say to me to my face… and while you stare and make your comments wasting your time in my business im not worried one bit what your thinking… So in conclusion, Ima do me regardless and if you have a problem….well…. i jus DONT care….its something you have to deal with not me…LOVE IS LOVE

    I am a homosexual male who does wish one day to have the same freedoms as my straight friends and family do. To all those who say that being gay is wrong, I am truly sorry to hear that. It is not my fault that god created me as a homosexual. Some of you say that if we start to accept homosexuals and their ways of living then the world will come to an end because you need a man and a women to create a baby. This would never be true because there will always be heterosexual men and women (especially since we have an over-sized population). Also, homosexuals have no intention to take over the earth! If somehow the situation did end up happening though, then we could still have baby’s from modern day science procedures such as artificial insemination.

    Being gay is and should never be something to be ashamed of. I would also like to bring up the conversation that there are many religions which do believe homosexuals should be able to marry one another. I live in the United States of America and according to our first amendment we have the freedom of religion. Doesn’t this mean that we should be able to marry freely because that certain religion wants it and allows it? So wouldn’t banning gay marriage go against our first amendment? Also, If certain religions are so obsessed that gay marriage will ruin the “sanctity of marriage” then maybe they should try and ban divorce as well, but that would never happen because people don’t want there rights taking away from them….i guess they like having there rights. I would like to have that feeling.

    Anyone who has any questions about homosexuality please read this article from the American Psychological Association:

    Also, the American Psychiatric Association proved a long time ago that being gay is not a mental illness (for all those who believe it is):

    “Hooker’s work was the first to empirically test the assumption that gay men were mentally unhealthy and maladjusted. The fact that no differences were found between gay and straight participants sparked more research in this area and began to dismantle the myth that homosexual men and women are inherently unhealthy.”

  30. Do your research

    On December 11, 2009 at 1:38 am


    1. God did not write the Bible.

    2. Church vs. State. Religion shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.

    3. Being free to love and marry whomever people choose is a constitutional right.

    4. If you are going to go by the Bible, there are many other things that “God” tells us to do. Many of them are completely unrealistic and rediculous. Don’t pick and choose what things you want to take out of the Bible to give reasons why people don’t have a right to get married in a country that is supposed to have “justice for all”.

    5. In Jesus’s time, in the area of Israel many gay people lived normal lives, and their marriages were sactified by the Roman Catholic Church, even back then.

    Do some research guys, don’t just believe whatever your parents tell you or your pastor/preist tells you.

    Okay.
    God DOES love everyone. Even if they don’t love Him. NO ONE deserves His love. Not even straight people. But that doesn’t make it okay to be gay.
    I hate it when people try to blame God for being gay. ‘He allowed me to be this way but he’s going to send me to Hell for it?’ Yes. He allows you to cheat. He allows you to be angry. He allows you to sin and sin and sin. We have free will. You will go to Hell if you sin and don’t repent. The only way to NOT go to Hell is to either: Trust in God and ask for forgivness, because he WILL forgive you. Or you could be perfect. Which is impossible. Only one man has done that. Jesus Christ.
    So you hypocrites who call yourselves ‘religous’ yet say it’s okay to be gay should pick up the bible and read some truth.

    On February 26, 2010 at 12:36 am


    HEY my names is brianna and i’m 14.i found this website cause i was doing a persuasive essay on same-sex marriage im all for it but why should we deny the right to let someone fall in love no matter what orientation they are. i grew up with homosexuals as close family friends and when i see how in love they are how do we as people take that right away from them you all say that gays are an abomination. then why would god create them. god had a right for putting them on earth. and we should accept it cause its a time for change

    ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE ITS THE RIGHT THING TO DO

    p.s how do you think it would be if god created homosexuals first and in the bible said heterosexuality is an abomination we would all be fighting for the samething gays are fighting for the right to marry the one person you love
    MARRIAGE IS A HUMAN RIGHT NOT A HETEROSEXUAL PRIVELEGE

    WHY is it that everytime this subject comes up it goes straight to god and everyone says to accept. god doesnt want to accepT the fact that guys are starting to like guys? did you talk to him yourself and ask him? or did he talk to you u in your dreams? the numbers are increasing in the number of gay people. yeah gay people can not make a child so eventually the population number will go down and our generations will be destroyed. what if gays and lesbians start taking over and eventually we wont be producing anymore. we should help these people and turn them straight. we should make gay to straight camps and show them what women are really like so they stop being so gay!!!

    Same-sex relationships are being widely encouraged by our shadowy Hidden Masters in order to de-populate the planet…”divide and conquer”; so some of you here have got it right on the nail. The natural process of male-female relationship/marriage/children is the one we should be promoting. To those of you who say “but God created gays”, how can you be so sure of that? On the face of it, it would seem rather pointless for a Creator to produce such people on purpose, since they cannot physically give birth (if both male) or inseminate (if both female).
    Our Masters are deliberately undermining marriage and the natural male-female order of things, so as to destroy them and bring the human race under their control, to serve them. You all as people are helping them every step of the way by agreeing to these crazy ideas of same-sex marriage, civil relationships, and so on. You are, in effect, undermining your own futures and those of your children, and theirs in turn.
    I also wonder how many gay people really are gay, or whether they are simply choosing it as an alternative lifestyle. I think it is so desperately sad when I see young hetero men and women longing for a proper relationship and being unable to find Miss or Mr Right…..while elsewhere, equally attractive men and women are embarking on same-sex physical encounters. The imbalance of the genders can only lead to one thing.

  36. Think about that....

    On April 22, 2010 at 8:00 am


    It drives me crazy reading all these comments….don’t you people, who say that gays should be turned straight, have a brain or a HEART? Why don’t you put yourself in the position of being homosexual!? And lemme tell you, it’s not a decision to ‘turn gay’. Infact, you don’t become gay, it’s inside you all along, you just discover it at a certain point of life. So imagine being a homosexual, and falling in love with a person who is the same sex. You want to make a commitment to spend the rest of your life with him/her, but you are not allowed to get married.
    All I’m saying is that humans should have equal rights for things like education, working possibilities, marriage, raising children, etc. I’m not going to say that God created gays, because I know that not everyone believes in God, but it is a fact that homosexuals didn’t become what they are by their own choice!

    everyone is born equal, and according to alot of people god created us equal and created us the way we are so it is not far to say same sex couples are against religion. I am all for the gayss. people need to grow up and learn to except life as it is and stop looking down on a person for who they love or like. how the hell would straights feel if all gays looked down on tthem?

    People have always protested change.
    Many people died when slavery of the black people was abolished.
    The Little Rock Nine was harassed, when they wanted to intergrate into an all white school.
    Religious people protested Interracial marriage on the grounds that “God wants seperation of the races”
    All of the above are morally acceptable.

    The bible also lists that eating shellfish is a sin. Or something along those lines.

    Also, wasnt there also something about Stoning a young girl if she still lives with her parents and isn’t a virgin?

    Of course there was stuff against homosexuality in the bible, But the way I figure it. Is that you are picking and choosing what you want to fight against.

    “OH I LIKE SHELLFISH, BUT HOMOSEXUALITY, I DUN LIKE THAT”

    Marriage is a human right. So is same sex marriage.
    A gay couple getting married will not alter your life one way or the other. Yes it may start being taught in schools, But hey! So is former slavery of the black people, and their rights movement.
    Back in 1950, riots would have started for that being taught in schools.
    Times change, and when same sex marriage is allowed, and believe me, within the next decade it will be. It will become more and more morally acceptable. The war is already won, we just have to wait.

    I myself am a Transexual M2F Lesbian. I’ve been preached against by online communities and the like.
    Gays and Lesbians are getting their rights. And slowly I am getting mine too.

    The amount of contradictions in your arguments too.

    “Africans and races are actually REAL, homosexuality is not material so we shouldnt have to read about it in schools”

    There has been absolutely no proof that God is real.
    But I was forced into a scripture class when I was 10.

    1) The Bible wasn’t written by God. It was written by man after God gave man the right to choose from right or wrong. (after eve ate the apple) Who is to say those men followed what God wanted to be in his book? You can say God wouldn’t allow that but that just goes into my next point.
    2) The sole purpose of people according to the Bible is to grow and multiply, right? Then why does God allow women and men to be born unable to have children at birth? Does it make it ok then for those people to be homosexual?
    3) If you really do some research on the Bible you will see that it has been through some heavy translating. The origin of the Bible is Greek. The word homosexual and its meaning didn’t exsist.
    4) Every verse you want to throw out there about how the Bible is against homosexuals is a wrong case. If you read the story around it and go back to earlier translation you will see that the story involves an older man RAPING a younger male. No duh that is wrong. Not once about love.
    I’m tired of hearing that being homosexual is an abomination and its worse than sin. If you want to look at it that way from the Bible then the same person that just uttered those words is going to hell right along with all the homosexuals right? According to the Bible being arrogant is also an abomination.

    Let people live their own lives. If it sends them to hell, what does it matter to you? You aren’t one to judge that. Why try to stop something that just makes two more people in the world happy?

    P.s. For those of you believing that promoting and allowing gays to marry prevents bearing children and adding population.. you are wrong. Gay women can still have children in more ways than one and gay men and women can take on the children already placed on this earth by parents who can’t keep their children or take care of them.

    I am fully for straight, gay, and lesbian people!
    Anyone and everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. You don’t have to agree to what I’ve said infact you can fully disagree. I just thought I’d throw some thoughts out there.

    this is the most annoying thing i have read why would someone choose to by gay and be ridiculed and hated by yous catholics its called the 21st century yo. I think its about time to wake up and realise that everyone is intitled to there opinion and if a girl likes a boy and a boy likes a girl it shouldn\\\’t be anything different to a girl liking another girl and a boy liking another boy all in all we are all humans and we all deserve love no matter whom they love. Time to but down a book that a group of guys wrote and actually try to understand why people like who they like.

    btw to the peeps who say that homosexuals are destroying procreation…. what about couples who can\\\’t or couples who wish not to sh\\\’ould they be shuned and sent to \\\’Hell\\\’? It\\\’s how \\\’God\\\’ (or who ever made them) made them but i just think that if God was real he would be a prejudice bitch if he truly is who catholics say he is.

    If not man and woman, can I marry a dog? A Child? A tree? My mother?
    If anything, it is far more biologically correct for me to have sex with a dog, child, parent of the opposite sex than with a human of the same sex.
    The tree thing is another story.
