“Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else.” said President Obama as he announced the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage nationwide in the United States.
Since then the social media has been swept by the Rainbow flag and #LoveWins.
Same sex marriage is still unacceptable in many countries around the world. Not only legally, but culturally unacceptable. As a Chinese raised in a Christian family I have no doubt I am going to raise “a few eyebrows” from my family (and maybe friends) as I change my Facebook profile picture in “rainbow”. I probably will be “asked” to remove this blog post that I am writing right now.
So what does marriage equality means for the Christian faith?
I am not here to comment, as I was having that question in my head as well. Here is an article I read, however, that I would like to share with you.
I am not even here to talk about “rights”. I am not here to judge or criticise. However, if you have doubts like me, I encourage you to open your heart and mind and find your own answers. For me, I just think our world needs more love than judgement.
This is why my “double rainbow” is up at the first place.
Now let’s hope my rainbow and this blog can stay.
