Is it okay for me to be against gay marriage?


As a Christian woman I do not believe in gay marriage. Period. But aside from that, why are people being openly penalized for expressing their opinions about this issue? It seems to me that anybody who's against gay marriage is somehow a societal heretic. I don't understand that nor do I agree. We are ALL entitled to our own opinions and my opinions should have no bearing on how you decide to live your life. I may not believe in gay marriage, but I don't judge. That is between you and your creator. Be happy with the decisions you make in your life, but please don't force me to ascribe to them.

    THANK YOU JI. That is truly ALL that I am saying. Don't think I'm judging you because I disagree with you. Live your life, but don't expect me to support those decisions. I honestly appreciate your response, and thank you for the long answer.

    @jonny I would never stop loving my children, regardless of their life choices. But this isn't about self-respect, it's about people being allowed to express their views and/or beliefs without being demonized for doing so.

    It's unfortunate that all people don't ascribe to this belief.

    I couldn't agree more! The same belief, not advertised and used only in their private lives would not get the negative attention that it gets when its spread. I believe in defending greater good and stopping bad but personal choices are nobody's biz

    I don't need to ask permssion to own my belief system. However, as a writer and as an educator, I am charged with percipitating critical thinking. I want to know what others think. My belief system wont waiver based on a debate.

    I don't think people are as concerned about other people's "opinions" as long as it does not effect their (personal) freedom or choices. Laws are stronger than opinions. It's the law a lot of people want to change not their opinion.
