Recently, gay marriage was legalized in the United States. This is not a post on whether I am for or against homosexuality. This isn’t a post on my opinion at all.
This post—really—is just a question, a concern even, and I’d like to know your thoughts on this.
Not too many years ago, homosexuality was considered wrong, morally and biologically. It was an unfortunate condition some suffered with. Now, it is considered normal, natural, and right.
My concern is: How many other things that are “wrong” today will be considered “right” a few years from now?
As the support of homosexuality has grown, the following phrases have been tossed around: “If it makes them happy…”, “Love, don’t hate”, and “Love wins.”
But here’s where it gets scary. Where does, “If it makes them happy…” end?
What if it makes them happy to marry three of their best friends? Or their puppy Brutus? Or their little sis?
What if they “love” sexual contact with third grade girls and boys, or prostitutes, or farming equipment? Does “love win” again?
Is anything wrong? Or is it all up for a popular vote?
… Did we open Pandora’s box?
I take it back. I will share my personal opinion, and that personal opinion is that I don’t want my kids (or grandkids) growing up in a world where incest and pedophilia are okay!
I have a line, a line where right and wrong separate.
We are living in a day and age where almost anything is accepted. Judgers are the ones hated.
But are we moving into a place where there is no right and wrong anymore? Who decides what is right and wrong? The government, the times, God, parents, society?
Will we go so far that murder is no longer wrong? To a place where we can justify taking the life of another person? (We’re already doing it with abortion…¹)
What about robbing a bank, if it’s for a good cause?
Where’s the line?
Not to cause panic, but I think you should be scared too.
Do you think Pandora’s box has been opened? Or maybe you think the divide of right and wrong is unnecessary?
I’d like to know in the comments.
¹ Yes. This is my personal opinion, and I know others think differently.
² I am in no way accusing homosexuals for “opening Pandora’s box,” or anything of the sort. I am merely using them as an example of the change in public opinion from something that was considered “wrong” and is now considered “right”.
