Ah...question of same sex marriage

Two days ago, The Star Online highlighted a same sex marriage between Jessie Chung and Joshua Beh. Yesterday, the Government and National Evangelical Christian Fellowship disapprove this couple's marriage. Personally, being a Catholic, i would definitely disapprove this marriage. I laud the Government and the relevant Church authorities that came out to speak against this "union". Of course, there are some non-believers and contemporary human rights activists would argue that this is absurd! Surely, if two individuals regardless of their gender truely love each other that much, they should be given the chance to get married. Love knows no bounds, if Jessie Chung and Joshua Beh can put aside the fact that both of them are men, why not let them seal their love with marriage?

If i were to argue this point by quoting the Bible or any religious text, a lot of so-called "let-love-rule" or non-believers will not accept it since they do not believe in my faith. Hence, i shall proceed by questioning "let-love-rule" concept. It seems to be a flawless concept. Heck, if they sincerely love each other, by all means, they should get together and live happily ever after. This applies to incestuous relationships. If a father truely loves his daughter and vice versa, both of them should f**k their brains out and solemnize their love by registering as a married couple with the relevant authorities. This applies to sibling love. If you truly love your elder brother/sister and he/she loves you too, go ahead and get married! Sounds ridiculous? I don't think so. The rationale here is if both individuals truly love each other, they should be permitted to marry. Incestuous relationship falls into this category, so why not?

One thing i hate about listening to all this talk of let-love-rule crap is their immature reasoning. You preach about allowing same sex marriage marriages because they do not affect you! You spout things about acceptance when you haven't encountered any of such instances in your life! Imagine your son/father/brother who decides to change his sex and marry another man. If you can honestly give blessings to this marriage (without b*tching about it), then you have all the right to advocate let-love-rule or human rights. Until you are truly convicted in the let-love-rule, please don't go around promoting what you don't truly believe in.
