Show Me Where

Are you a Christian who was outspoken in your opposition to the government’s and the Supreme Court’s celebration and legalization of gay fake-marriage? If you were, and if your circle of friends and acquaintances and co-workers is much bigger than 10, then I would be surprised if you haven’t encountered all sorts of nonsensical, irrational, just plain lame, and downright dumb arguments trying to point out just how wrong you are.

I saw this one recently: “Oh it says gay marriage is a sin in the Bible? Wonderful, now show me where it says so in the Constitution.”

Clever, huh? Whoever made that one up probably sat back smugly and thought, “Ha! Now I’ve got those Christian bigots! Let’s see them get around this one!”

Okay, I’ll give it a try. First, the Bible doesn’t mention the term “gay marriage.” That’s because marriage is specifically defined as a union and a covenant between people of different genders. It is definitionally impossible for two people of the same gender to be “married.” However, it does state plainly that all homosexual activity and thoughts are sinful. And, no, the Constitution doesn’t specifically talk about homosexuality or gay fake-marriage, but the Constitution omits a long and varied list of things that are wrong. The Constitution doesn’t mention shin-kicking or purse-snatching or playing Yahtzee in the middle of the interstate. The first two of those are really bad, and the third is really dumb and dangerous, but the Constitution is just not that kind of document.

The place you go to determine the “right-or-wrongness” of things having to do with marriage and sexual sin is the Bible. And, remember, since the Bible is the Word of God, it would trump the Constitution even if the Constitution condoned gay fake-marriage.
