Marriage

Genesis 23 & 24
"The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.  For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh."

God commands us to love one another.  He does not command us to have sex with everyone we love.  God wants us to be happy with one husband or one wife.  He wants us to live as one man and one woman, together forever.

That message is plain all through the scriptures.  It is no coincidence that the creation of woman follows soon after the creation of man, because it is not good for a man to be alone.  It is also no coincidence that Jesus performs his first miracle at a wedding. 

There is no Christian basis for uniting two people of the same sex in holy matrimony.  No matter what state legislatures may decide, no matter what people may vote for, no matter what the courts may say, marriage is between one man and one woman, who have reached the age of majority, have consented to the marriage and are outside the limits of consanguinity; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
