As many ungodly decisions as I make on a regular basis, I’m a Christian. A terrible one, but a Christian nonetheless. I don’t think the government should be involved in marriage in the first place, but I support gay marriage, because I don’t think that the Bible should be where we get our laws. Christianity was never intended to be spread by force, but by letting Christ shine through us and attracting the lost to His light. Moreover, we can’t pick and choose aspects of our faith to push. If gay marriage should be illegal, why shouldn’t divorce be? And if we are truly concerned about the desecration of marriage, why aren’t we fighting to exclude people that live other lifestyles condemned by God?
But as much as I think our laws should steer clear of a religious bias, Christianity is essential to American heritage. Multiculturalism is often mistaken as American culture, and while I acknowledge the great contributions of immigrants to this country, America has a culture of its own. As the multicultural agenda is promoted, it is done so at the sake of the American identity. Political correctness is trying to erase “In God We Trust” from our currency, take “Under God” out of our Pledge of Allegiance, and remove the Pledge of Allegiance from our schools, and as an American, I refuse to stand idly by and watch my culture deteriorate to accommodate others.
I believe that different people are capable of existing together in this beautiful country, and that everyone should be able to practice a lifestyle that brings them happiness as long as it as does not come at the cost of another’s liberty. Be who you want to be and do as you please, but not at the cost of a nation’s foundation. Christianity is a thread in America that you cannot pull without unraveling the flag entirely.
