I disagree with the column “Gay marriage” (Dec. 9 and TribLIVE.com) by C.S. Pearce, who's merely another example of a liberal theologian in a school of theology expressing her liberal views. The Catholic Church has firmly stated its opposition to homosexuality and gay marriage, as have all of the true, 100-percent Bible-based Protestant churches; it's only the liberal branches of Protestant churches that embrace it, the “CHINO” (“Christian in name only”) churches.
One example would be the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, which allows gay pastors to lead the flock.
Just because “everybody's doing it” doesn't make it right. If 10 people jump from a bridge in front of you, will you jump, too? My guess is that Ms. Pearce belongs to one of the liberal Protestant CHINO church sects that allows gay pastors. She does not speak for the larger group of Protestants who oppose homosexuality as aberrant, abnormal behavior.
In states that have approved gay marriage, what's next? A man marrying his dog? A woman marrying her two cats? The U.S. Constitution does not provide any civil rights for abnormal behavior.
