The so called Gay rights are built on opinion. Traditional values are based on the Natural Law. Men and women are complimentary by the design of nature. Gay rights seek to define relationships on grounds of the redefinition of the function of bodily parts.
The Natural Law was identified by the Ancient Greeks. From Sophocles around 500BC from Aristotle 350BC to Cicero 100BC. It was the premise of the Pilgrim Fathers in writing the Constitution of the United States. It is the premise of the UN Charter.
The premise of Christianity and Judaism is the Natural Law. The Natural Law was not invented by Christianity or Judaism it is honoured by them because it is the design in nature.
The Natural Law is in honoured in both Genesis 1:26 “God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them” and in the New Testament in Mark 10:6 Jesus said “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.”
Right and wrong are not relative or can be based on opinion. The spectrometer of reason that is sought to determine right and wrong or how to decide what is true is the Natural Law that is written on the heart of man. It may however be masked as Paul outlines in Romans 1: 16-32.
Aquinas deals with the same point in the Summa in 94:6 saying that “the Natural Law can be blotted out from the human heart, either by evil persuasions, just as in speculative matters errors occur in respect of necessary conclusions; or by vicious customs and corrupt habits,..”
Science is not subjective neither can be morals. We are not free to choose which side of the road we drive on as that would endanger others. Individual may blot out the Natural Law written on their hearts to commit a robbery but it does not change the fact that it is wrong.
Under the Natural Law men and women are complimentary. Under the moral relativism of “equality” there is a redefinition of the function of bodily parts that are not consistent with nature.
Marriage by definition was a promise between men and women to be husband and wife. The term marriage is being used by the moral relativism of “equality”in an attempt to validate their redefinition of the function of bodily parts that are not consistent with nature.
It might also be noted that there is an attempt by secularists to attempt moral inversion.
This is identified in Isaiah 5:20
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who change darkness into light, and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet, and sweet into bitter!”
Shakespeare makes use of the same sentiment in Macbeth, Act Scene 1 when the witches say “Fair is foul, and foul is fair:”
Jesus in Mark 12 was accused of doing good works by the power of Beelzebul ie the devil.
26 And if Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself; how, then, will his kingdom stand?
27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your own people drive them out? Therefore they will be your judges.
28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
29 How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.
30 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
31 Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.
32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
33 “Either declare the tree good and its fruit is good, or declare the tree rotten and its fruit is rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit.
34 You brood of vipers, how can you say good things when you are evil? For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.
35 A good person brings forth good out of a store of goodness, but an evil person brings forth evil out of a store of evil. ….”
Paul in Romans 13:12
….Let us then throw off the works of darkness (and) put on the armour of light;
Jesus as Logos is both reason and the light of the world.
