I must write again about same-sex marriage. Previous letter writers said they learned that gays want the same things out of life we want, such as a long-term relationship with a loving partner and to fit in and belong. God wants us to have a long-term relationship but He clearly shows it is to be between a man and a woman. If you want to fit in and belong, you need to follow the established rules.
I know some gay people, and they are very nice, sensitive people. But they are not living according to God's best way. If they want to change, there is help through Crossover, Inc., in Lexington.
The previous letter writers said they watched gays trying to be something they were not born to be and feeling ashamed for what they were. Shame comes from within: If you know you are in the right, you will not be ashamed. As for what we are born to be, God would not clearly forbid homosexuality and then turn around and make anyone that way! It has never been proven that there are any genes or anything else that make person gay. It is a choice an individual makes. Some say, "But I can't help it, I feel so strongly that way." A thief or an alcoholic or an adulterer could say the same thing. These are all what used to be called sinful behaviors, and all are due to choices we make.
