The Sanctity of Marriage

Updated on July 27, 2015

What about the votes of the American Voters?

Because the U.S. Supreme Court made homosexual marriage legal, does that make it sacred and sanctified by God? No, I do not think so. The majority of voters who voted on the decision of "same-sex" homosexual marriage voted to ban same-sex marriage, and didn't think so either. The voter's decision, in many states lasted only for a few months when it was overturned by the federal courts and finally by the U.S. Supreme Court. On June 26, 2015, our voting power was stolen from us on that day. Some people just don't have respect for the sanctity of marriage anymore. Also, it was a sad day in America because Senator Reverend Pickney was the first shooting victim to be buried that day in Charleston, SC after a young, shooter killed 9 church goers inside of their church.

Senator Reverend Pickney's funeral was also on June 26, 2015; the same day of the decision to overrule the voters' decision to ban same-sex marriage. It was for many a bad day for the American political system, the family, and the society.

Government Should Not Deal in Religion

Marriage is a part of religion. That is why when people get married an ordained Reverend or Minister is needed to perform the wedding ceremony.

We, the people, have to speak up for family and the children who will unfortunately, be affected by what the government sanctioned and allows to be taught in school about what a husband and wife is. Our voting power was stolen on June 26, 2015, but our economic buying power still has a lot of power and merit to support our beliefs. We have to pay attention to what companies and organizations support what "agendas"?

    Interesting comment Theraggededge. Before same-sex marriage they had legal partnership, so there was something else other than traditional marriage. People seemed to not mind that instead of what we have now legalized.

    I really think that in 2015 we need something else... marriage for those who seek the blessing of their religion but something else for those who are not religious or are same-sex. A new ceremony. One that needn't be permanent. I love the idea of the Wiccan 'jumping the broom' ritual, where people vow to be together a year and a day. In that way people stay together because they want to be together and not because religion tells them to.

    Thanks for commenting. Yes I know other officiants vary, but marriage is primarily in the eyes of God and is supposed to be sacred. Keep reading and watching.

    I actually supported the ruling so I can't agree but it was a very well-written hub for your point of view.

    I just wanted to point out that you don't need a reverend or minister to get legally married. State requirements for officiants vary, but you can also get legally married by completely secular people as well... ship's captain, notary public, judge, mayor, in some states a governor can appoint anyone an officiant-- they don't have to be religious at all; they can be atheists... (not to mention religious clergy of religions that support same sex marriages, but that's another discussion).

    Happy hubbing.
