On a Personal Note: SCOTUS 2015
Kel Friday, June 26, 2015I generally steer clear of political topics here on the blog unless it directly relates to a story because...well, it's a book blog, not a political column. But this has been weighing heavily on my heart and, rather than shed useless tears, I've decided to write slightly less useless words. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled book programming tomorrow.
So here it is:
- I agree with the dissenting Justices' opinions in this case. I think the majority took too broad an interpretation of the Constitution and played to politics, not law, in changing the long held definition of marriage.
- I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus. I believe the Bible to be true.
- I believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman. (Different groups/religions have had various definitions for the social institution; now we have a court-mandated definition.)
- I believe homosexual practices are inconsistent with Biblical teachings.
- I believe in treating everyone with the same love God has shown to me (no matter how undeserving and rebellious I am).
- I believe in stating my beliefs and opinions, listening to yours, holding respectful discussions, and agreeing to disagree.
Sigh. Just as well. I know I couldn't have fit all that in one tweet. ;)
