The Constitution Does Not Guarantee a Right to Homosexual Conduct or Marriage
Yes, the constitution gives us all the same rights. But show me the right to homosexuality in the constitution.
Marriage is the union of a man and a woman and homosexual men and women may enter that kind of relationship if they wish --and it will be better for them and better for all of society, for any children they conceive (and they do), for any hetero spouse they marry, if they take advantage of their constitutional right to find a spouse of the opposite sex and found a family with her --or him in case of a lady --and remain faithful. In fact, if they remain virginal before marriage and NEVER start into homosexual relations, I predict they'll not likely see themselves as homosexual.
The Constitution neither explicitly nor implicitly, legitimates adultery, incest, pedophilia, bestiality, polygamy/bigamy/polyandry, transgendering, rape or homosexual behaviors and gay marriage.
There are universal moral laws beyond our Constitution --and some man-made laws derived from our constitution, which govern our sexuality and our sexual relationships. Homosexuality involves abnormal ways to copulate--which have proven to be highly risky to the participants and harmful to public health. We spend a lot of money trying to cure and manage STD's and promote condoms and gay "marriage" without addressing the actual problem --the abnormal, promiscuous, risky, homosexual activities themselves.
The "right to privacy" is limited in what it can legalize. Most of us know that privacy does NOT mean doing whatever we please between consenting adults in private --including abortion--and other crimes done in private. (Yes, I know about Roe vs. Wade --judicial activism legitimizing the killing of our children against the vote of the people and the laws of the states. )
The Bible talks about "unjust judges" and we've got them. They may give us gay marriage eventually as they gave us abortion (by a vote of 5 to 4?) --but it will never be moral or right or safe or monogamous or accepted by the masses. (At least I hope it won't --for that will be the beginning of the end when all the people are swinging both ways.)
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
