Perversion of God’s design I

I must take issue with C.S. Pearce's attempt to water down the passages from the New Testament she mentions in her column “Gay marriage” (Dec. 9 and TribLIVE.com). I think when the text says homosexuality is an abomination and a perversion, that is exactly what it means.
Perhaps my unsophisticated mind can't appreciate the nuances that Pearce and other “scholars” so obviously discern. For instance, I actually believe that when God gave Adam his perfect mate in the garden of Eden, God intentionally gave Adam a woman, not a man — and only one woman at that! How could God have gotten things so wrong? Obviously, he didn't.
God created woman for man and gave us the institution of marriage. If Pearce and others want to invent some sort of legal bond to unite homosexual couples, fine — just don't call it marriage. Call it a civil union or whatever, but leave marriage alone. Since such unions are man-made, man can justify them, and man can endorse them with civil ceremonies. Do not ask Bible-believing pastors to endorse this perversion of God's design by legally forcing them to accept a new definition of marriage.

Nobody knows what God's design is based on man-made books such as the Bible. That book has two versions of creation sequences in Genesis 1 and Genesis 2. In one chapter the gods create men and women simultaneously ("Let us make man in our image, male and female god created them). In the other chapter, God makes a man first, realizes his mistaken notion that animals alone could make the man happy, and only then creates a woman out of a man's rib (having made a man out of mud/clay/dirt). Unions on earth are manmade as well as godmade. It is high time we separate God from all these manmade scriptures claiming to tell us who god wishes any of us to marry. There are scriptures which tell us celibacy is the best, that men should avoid women, but marry only if you can't control your sexual impulses. Good grief! God can create eunuchs. "Some eunuchs are made so by men." God can and does create homosexuals as well as heterosexuals. All are in God's image.
