Against Mormon Marriage??

Stenar at Bloglet thinks that it is hypocritical of the Mormon Church to lobby Congress? First off Mr. Stenar, (Is that his real name?) it's not the "Mormon Church" that is lobbying congress. It is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints urging it's members to lobby congress.
In a response to one comment about this post on his blog, he says, "...I am gay. I cannot procreate naturally..."
To me this is the whole heart of the issue. Being gay is UN-natural! It is AGAINST nature! Stenar said it, not me.
Maybe the Federal Constitutional Amendment should be called the amendment to protect natural marriage.
By the way, I have contacted my Senators and urged them to vote for the amendment. Does anybody really believe they would vote against it?

Most people outside of Utah wouldn't know what church I was referring to if I called it by its chosen name. Therefore, since many of my readers come from outside Utah, I have chosen to refer to it as the Mormon church.
And Mormon temple marriage isn't very natural, either.

My point was the church is urging it's MEMBERS to lobby congress.
I personally find "Mormon temple marriage" very natural. There is nothing that prevents me in my "Mormon temple marriage" from "procreating naturally."

I can't speak for Stenar, but I think he is just trying to make a point. Who are we as members of the LDS Church to tell others how to live?

What if gays were the majority in Utah and told us that we could only marry the same sex.

Sorry, natural or not this is about prejudice, not God's judgement or desire.

Two men who want the legalities and rights that married men and women share cannot change what my wife and I share.

A Constitutional Amendment will not keep those of the same sex who love each other from doing so.

I thought the purpose of the Constitution was to limit government, not rule over us.

Let God judge this one, and lets move forward without judgement.

I don't "approve" of same-sex relationships, but it's not something that people are going to seek my approval for, so really it's none of my business.

I am honestly conflicted on the issue, because I believe that it's wrong, and I don't think that I should be forced to accept something that I believe is wrong, however, I also realize that these are real people with real feelings and who am I to tell them how to live their lives?
