Christians do not own marriage

by eirenehogan

Whatever attitude some Christians have to marriage equality is irrelevant.  The issue is not what the Bible thinks of it, it is about what our society, our Nation, thinks of it.  It is a secular issue and Australia is a secular country; that is within our constitution.  Some Christians try to claim Christianity owns marriage, that somehow their god ‘invented’ marriage, which is just ridiculous.  Marriage is – and has been – in all societies, long before Christianity came along, and before the Jews too, and within all non-Christian countries around the world.  The Egyptians married, and their civilisation began 2,500 years before Christ.  The Asians marry, the American Natives marry, the Australian Aborigines marry, the Pacific Islanders marry, the African natives marry.  Christianity does not own marriage.  These people are entitled to their views, and they do not have to choose to marry same-sex if they don’t want to, but they have no right to impose their views on non-Christians and onto Christians who don’t agree with them.
