Hello Dear Listeners, welcome to overcoming temptations. My name is Oyisi Okatahi. Today our topic is titled: Why homosexual marriage is harmful. There are over 20 countries in the world where homosexual or gay marriages is allowed and some include Netherlands, Canada, France, England, and recently Ireland and United States. So in these countries men can marry men and women can marry women. Now by hating someone you will not be able to win them to God. So you need to love the homosexual and hate the sin of the homosexuality or sodomy. Whenever I have a discussion with people who defend homosexuality they have their own points, justification and reasons. However we should note that everything can be justified even murder. The idea is that where is the truth, for those who care to seek truth. So here are some reasons why homosexual marriage and homosexual relationships is harmful.
- It is unnatural. In many countries where they allow homosexual marriage they keep pets like dogs and cats. Now have they ever seen a male dog and male dog mating? It does not happen. It is always male and female. So people try to use very isolated cases to say there are homosexual animals. However the animals we relate to every day like dogs, cats, cows , sheep do not exhibit this. So even in gay marriages someone play the role of the man and the other person the woman.
- It denies a child a father or mother. If homosexual couples choose to have children by adoption or any other means then the child has two father or two mothers. So the child will lose at least one of his natural parents. Usually the child is not well adjusted and suffers a complexity issue.
- It promotes sexual transmitted diseases. From studies sexually transmitted diseases are prevalent among gay people. Some of the early discovery of HIV was first seen among gay homosexual in United States.
- It turns a moral wrong to a civil right. Homosexuals argue that they are fighting for equality just like racial equality of black and white. Sexual behavior and race are two different things. Racial difference is natural while homosexuality is totally unnatural.
- It destroys the society. It is agreed that families are the building block of every decent society, the better the family the better the society. Gay people cannot naturally have children, so if they want children they will need to do it artificially and costly. Also other cases like bestiality (sleeping with animals), pedophile (sleeping with children), incest (brother sleeping with Sister) will all be asking for their rights since Gay now have rights. So when will the madness stop.
- Finally It displeases God. This is my most important reason. Genesis 1:27 says So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. In Genesis 19 God sent judgment to Sodom and Gomorrah for their sins especially that of homosexuality, that is the root of the English word Sodomy.
May God help homosexuals and grant them grace to overcome in Jesus name.
