GAY MARRIAGE RIDICULES THE REPUBLIC's SPIRIT

This is a very sensitive issue to most Americans because it has to do with the constitution and the states laws  and since i am not one i can discuss it without any pressure, . The subject of gays and gays marriage is a wide subject and a controversial one unlike other because it has to do with religion similar to what happened to Mrs Kim Davis, she broke the US law no doubt but she preferred that to breaking GOD's law, so are the laws contradicting? To discuss this matter rationally we have to look at the US history regarding this issue, the basis that built the foundation of USA and the religions view to the subject.
Let us look at the history's timeline first:

1962 Illinois became the first state to decriminalize homosexual acts between consenting adults in private,
 1973 when the The American Psychiatric Association removes homosexuality from its official list of mental disorders
1977 Activists in Miami, Florida pass a civil rights ordinance making sexual orientation discrimination illegal in Dade County. Save Our Children, a campaign by a Christian fundamentalist group and headed by singer Anita Bryant, is launched in response to the ordinance. In the largest special election of any in Dade County history, 70% vote to overturn the ordinance. It is a crushing defeat for gay activists.
1982 Wisconsin becomes the first state to outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation
1993 The “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” policy is instituted for the U.S. military, permitting gays to serve in the military but banning homosexual activity. President Clinton's original intention to revoke the prohibition against gays in the military was met with stiff opposition; this compromise, which has led to the discharge of thousands of men and women in the armed forces, was the result.
2000 Vermont becomes the first state in the country to legally recognize civil unions between gay or lesbian couples. The law states that these “couples would be entitled to the same benefits, privileges, and responsibilities as spouses.” It stops short of referring to same-sex unions as marriage, which the state defines as heterosexual
2004 On May 17, same-sex marriages become legal in Massachusetts

The history timeline tells us that is took over 40 years from first decriminalizing gays until it became legal for same-sex marriage, which clearly shows the reluctance of the American people to legalize it, and it took all these years of campaigning and media support to reach this level from being criminalized and needed psychiatric help.

The question remains,gay marriage is lawful but is it built on the basis of the founding fathers of the USA?why did the politicians moved away from the indispensable supports of George Washington which are religion and morality?what did the people whom wrote the constitution think of virtues?

GEORGE WASHINGTON said in his farewell address in 1796:
" Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them."

SAMUEL ADAMS said:
“He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man…. The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.”

JOHN ADAMS said:
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . ….Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” 

These are the people that really put the foundation of the USA and established it as a country, having known the spirit that led the Republic into being , let us see what the religion says:

The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22;20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.

God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.

If George Washington would come back to speak to the politicians i think he would say SHAME ON YOU .., and Mrs Davis will not face contradicting laws

i thank google that helped me in finding all the sources

  1. I agree with your premise about the Founding Fathers and their view of religion as the MORAL underpinning of the state, but, and this is a BIG but, neither did they entertain the idea that religion should be the governing principle of the state nor its law making. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State." Just as there was a commitment that the state should not institute or mandate one religion over the other, so too was this meant to prevent religion from directing the legislative process. This is the way the courts historically have interpreted the First Amendment, largely based on Jeffersonian thought. Therefore, governance of the U.S. is secular, but with moral underpinnings without regard to a specific religion... at least that was the goal.

    1. I AGREE WITH YOU THAT RELIGION IS NOT AND WAS NOT INTENDED TO BE THE GOVERNING BODY, BUT THE SPIRIT WITH WHICH THEY WROTE THE CONSTITUTION SHOWS CLEARLY FROM THEIR SPEECHES THE RESPECT TO RELIGION ,MORAL AND VIRTUE, ON THE OTHER HAND APPROVING THE SAME SEX MARRIAGE CONTRADICTS WITH ALL THE SPIRIT OF ALL THE ABOVE. AND AS YOU SAID RIGHTLY " WITH MORAL UNDERPINNINGS" THE GAYS RIGHTS IS DEFINITELY NOT MORAL, BECAUSE MORALITY COMES FROM RELIGION AND HUMAN NORMAL NATURE
      THIS IS MY OPINION
