Brief thoughts on LGBT

Personal opinion here.
President Obama has legalised same sex marriages across America today and it marks a global shift in societal thinking. Personally I am not against LGBT couples but I am dismayed by this decision. Especially to do that when the country is known to be a Christian nation. 
I am not against people who professes themselves to be gay or lesbian and I don’t judge them. There are valid reasons for who they are and no other human beings should condemn or even judge them. Only God have the right to judge. I am against those self-righteous people who take law into their own hands and oppress these people unfairly for no one have the rights to do that. There are so many accounts of gays or lesbians being oppressed because of their identity and some even committed suicide and it’s simply terrible. 
According to the Christian faith, we do not support same sex marriages because God has clearly said in the Bible that He is against it. God created man and woman for each other ( in a sexual way) and it is never meant to be any other way. And if somebody goes down the wrong path, we are to love the person unconditionally and gently guide the person back to the right path ( Galatians 6:1) This is our stance. Therefore I am personally appalled when self-righteous people take things into their own hands and make Christians out to be terrible people through their selfish acts. 
Loving a person does not mean agreeing with everything a person does. And so as much as I am okay with gays and lesbians, I am not okay with the idea. I just find it saddening to see that America will go down that path especially so because majority of the people there are Christians and the Bible clearly mentioned that God is against it. 
To be honest, I don’t know why God is against it other than it goes against the natural order of things but I believe God has a really good reason for that. I just sit back and observe the impacts it will have on America because this is the first time a country makes it legal and there will be new impacts whether good or bad we don’t know yet. Definitely there will be impacts on other countries as well as LGBT couples in other countries will demand for their rights as well. 
The issue of rights is really a sensitive topic. Everybody should get equal rights to areas like voting, education, healthcare and job opportunitie based merits. Yes I am for that too. Nobody should be denied those privileges because of their identity. It is very similar to the issue of feminism. 
It is fine for LGBT people to live their life quietly and be treated fairly, this is what we should be doing. But I feel that when it becomes legalised, it’s like telling the world that you can have a third alternative when it comes to having a identity. You can be a gay and it is a proper alternative in which I don’t believe that it is an proper alternative. It is like calling a grey area white when it is clearly grey. 
I believe that God did not create people to be like that since he is against it. Yes there is such a thing of having improper balance of hormones which causes a guy to behave more feminine and vice versa. My own take on this is that some people choose to go to that category because they could not find their place anywhere else. For example: A girl liking other girl because they can get along really really well and somehow that affection is more than a friendship affection, near to romantic love and that girl also don’t like guys maybe because she can’t find the same level of affection in guys. And there is such thing as a lesbian category, therefore she calls herself that because she showed similar symptoms. If the lesbian category did not exist, would she call herself that? The sexual desire comes only after she realise that she is a lesbian, isn’t that more of putting on an identity which may not be true but because society has a group for it that is why she is led to think that way.
People usually like each other first based on common interests and personalities for majority of the cases. I won’t deny that there are people who really is already wired to be a gay or lesbian right from when they are born. But how about the rest? Is it a choice because they have bad experiences from the opposite sex or is it a case of identity confusion whereby they group themselves into that category because they cannot find their place in anywhere else? If it’s a bad experience, the person need healing from it and if it’s a case of identify confusion, the person needs guidance.
But then again, not many people will be forthcoming with their answers because these questions are too sensitive. I can only hope and pray that people will be more clear minded on who they truly are in this chaotic society where anything can change. Don’t expect society to give you a clear answer on your identity because it never will. It only labels and messes your life up.
