These people strongly believe that gay marriage is the world’s biggest sin. There are a lot of sins in this world, but the only sin people seem to focus on is gay marriage. In the Bible, it states no sin is greater than the other. Some people would say that it is completely wrong to go against ones religion and rebel against God. There are others who say it does not matter who someone is with, just as long as they are happy; love does not have a gender.
The legal status of Same-Sex marriage has been doubted by conservatives groups, who claimed that “marriage” is the union between a man and a woman, and that changing it will distort the real meaning of it and that same-sex relationships are unmoral and a sin according to religious points of view. First of all, religious arguments against Same-Sex marriage are against religion itself as religion establishes that God gave us the right to choose our decisions. Most of Christians are against Same-Sex marriage because gay relationships are a sin, which it is according to the bible: Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) This verse from the bible clearly states that homosexuality is a sin; however the bible also makes it clear that God gave us free will.

The argument against same sex marriage is one founded in religion and personal values. As the majority of religions deem homosexuality as a sin, those opposing do not want to formally recognize a relationship or lifestyle they see as sinful and wrong. They argue that same-sex marriages undermine the institution of marriage itself because the institution of marriage should apply only to unions between one man and one woman. They believe allowing same-sex marriages will only lead to continued decline of moral value in America. Proponents argue that homosexuals should have access to the same marriage benefits and public acknowledgment enjoyed by heterosexual couples and that prohibiting same-sex marriage is unconstitutional discrimination.
Religion is a major aspect on why society believes that homosexuality is wrong and should not be accepted. Individuals who are against the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) community because of their religion believe that “homosexuality is a horrid transgression of God’s plan” (Bawer 74). They consider them sinners because they are going against God’s original intention; relationships should be between a man and a woman. Nia Augustin is a member of the Christian community and believes that supporting or being homosexual goes against her religion beliefs. In her interview, Augustin stated, “I have been told that the purpose of a man and woman being together is to reproduce, but a homosexual couple cannot do that, so that's not of God.” Homosexuality is sinful and wrong in the eyes of religious individuals because it involves sex that does not produce life.
Because when one is caught up in sin, but not willing to change, they are in direct rebellion to God and a danger to the church. This rule of the church not only applies to homosexuality, but to all sin. So those who smugly think homosexuality is a horrible sin worse than that of greed or spreading false rumors or being drunk, better think again. God has not changed nor has his response to all sin. No more, no less, he despises it, but desperately wants to help those who want his help: those who admit their sin and want to stop.
