Where are the same sex marriage supporters now? Those who shout about tolerance and equality, as the main buzz words for their fight in recent social arguments?

The same supporters you thought would be willing, even though disagreement, to support those who don’t believe in homosexuality and same sex marriage, because of equality. If backers of equality for homosexuality want tolerance and support, it would seem logical that this would be a commutative property type of formula.

‘“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord’. (NIV Romans 12:19) So if those of us who believe in the Bible’s view of homosexuality have been wrong in our behaviors toward our fellow citizens, God will take vengeance. We don’t need to take it against one another.
