This article just goes to show that some people will stand by what they believe regardless of the changes that are taking place around them. Many of these people feel it’s best to stand by your beliefs because that’s the proof that you have faith. In my opinion, that doesn’t make sense. If there are so many people who are “religious” that are able to allow this, why can’t you? Religion is so interpretive, and you may choose to believe however you want.
On the other hand, the gays can not choose to be straight. Some people may feel this is possible, but all it is, is pretending. Most gay people are fairly good at it, considering they’ve had to put on an act for so many years. Well, practice makes perfect. Unhappy, but perfect
Here is some of the article:
“HUDSON, New York (Reuters) - A town clerk in western New York has resigned to avoid being forced to sign marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, citing religious objections to same-sex marriage.
Laura Fotusky, the town clerk in Barker, New York, said in her resignation letter that she will step down on July 21, three days before New York becomes the sixth and largest state to allow gay nuptials.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the same sex marriage law last month after the bill narrowly passed the Republican-led state Senate. Its approval in New York is seen as a catalyst for gay marriage elsewhere as well as helping push the issue to the forefront nationally ahead of the 2012 elections.
Much of the debate in New York focused on the scope of protections for those opposed to same-sex marriage. The new law exempts religious groups from performing same-sex marriages but does not extend those protections to individuals, including government employees.
Fotusky was not immediately available for comment, but in her letter, dated July 11, she said she believes the Bible takes precedence over man-made laws.
The Bible clearly teaches that God created marriage between male and female as a divine gift that preserves families and cultures. Since I love and follow Him, I cannot put my signature on something that is against God, she wrote.
I would be compromising my moral conscience if I participated in the licensing procedure, she wrote.”
