In­valid con­cept

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION - ALAN KIDD, Ti­tahi Bay


In re­la­tion to the front page ar­ti­cle (KMN, Septem­ber 4), coun­cil backs gay mar­riage.

Shame on Porirua City Coun­cil for ig­nor­ing the voice of its cit­i­zens, church min­is­ters, and uni­lat­er­ally sup­port­ing ho­mo­sex­ual mar­riage.

Ho­mo­sex­ual mar­riage is not even a valid con­cept.

Mar­riage can only ever be fully ex­pe­ri­enced by a man and a woman that be­come ‘‘one’’, which is an im­pos­si­bil­ity for ho­mo­sex­u­als.

I’m par­tic­u­larly an­noyed with ’Ana Cof­fey who doesn’t un­der­stand the Bi­ble she reads. Je­sus showed grace to those caught in sin by not in­stantly dishing out the pu­n­ish­ment they de­served, but he unashamedly told them to re­pent from their im­moral ways (as in the case of the pros­ti­tute).

What does she think he died and rose again for? To con­quer sin, and to give ev­ery one of us the power to con­quer it too.

Ho­mo­sex­u­als need help with their temp­ta­tions. By bury­ing your head in the sand and think­ing ‘‘it doesn’t af­fect me’’, ‘‘each to their own’’, only traps the ho­mo­sex­ual in a de­ceived life­style that they strug­gle to get out of.

Read some per­sonal tes­ti­monies of ex-ho­mo­sex­u­als to get some real per­spec­tive.
