The irony of Christians against same-sex marriage

This is part 3 of a 5 part reblog series taken from Samuel Lam’s “Write a Blog on a Log” dealing with questions of faith and fear, inclusion and exclusion. Sam has an unusually nuanced and fair approach to issues like homosexuality, bullies, salvation, and fundamentalism. This third post reminds us that, if we speak even in the tongues of heaven but do not have love, we are nothing more than noisy gongs and clanging cymbals.

There’s an irony when it comes to the same-sex marriage deal among Christians who oppose it because the Bible says marriage should be between a man and a woman. My bigger issues is that that is not the big issue. The biggest issue I see is that there is no love.

The most important thing Jesus told us is to love God and love God’s people. God’s people is everybody. This is the priority.

Yet I see people who are against same-sex marriages condemning those who see it differently, throwing Scriptures all around and claiming that their view is right and everyone else is wrong.
