Editor’s note: This is actually a good question to ask of those out protesting or threatening to set themselves on fire over marriage equality. Jesus condemned divorce but they don’t seem to care about that. Where are the lines? Why are so many so hypocritical on other issues? Why can’t they see that treated homosexuals the same way you treat a divorced person is the right thing to do?
Why is it that people protesting same sex marriage aren’t out picketing legislatures to change the divorce laws? I think in large part it’s because they probably know a lot of divorced people themselves and have learned to live with the high rate of divorce in our society. Not that Christians have accepted divorce as somehow now being proper in all circumstances, but they know that loving people is more important than shunning or shaming them for their marriage status.
And since the Bible’s teachings on divorce are clear and we know how to love those who are divorced, I think it only appropriate that Christians who think the Bible is also clear in prohibiting same sex marriage treat people the same way. Love them, treat them with honor and dignity. Get to know them and enjoy their company. You cannot offer your love one way to divorced people and refuse it to same sex couples.
