Transcript of Gay Marriage Presentation
Should Gay Marriage be allowed in the Church?
Leviticus 18:22: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Corinthians 6:9-10: Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the Kingdom of God.
Two angels stay with Lot overnight and soon every man in Sodom- young and old- surround Lot’s house. They call to the Lot: “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Lot goes to meet the men outside and tells them not to do this wicked thing and offers his two daughters to the men.
Teachings on Love
Romans 13:10: Love does no harm to its neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfilment of law.
1 Peter 4:8: Above all: love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins
1 Corinthians 13:4-8: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Gay Marriage and the Media
Recent protest in Paris, France against the legalisation of Gay Marriage.
France already allows civil unions between same-sex couples, but extending their rights was a campaign pledge of Mr Hollande before he was elected in May.
"We can't go against nature"
President Francois Hollande has promised to change French law so that gay and lesbian couples can marry.

CHRISTIAN ATTITUDES TOWARDS GAY MARRIAGE
The Catholic Church opposes gay marriage and the social acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex relationships, but teaches that homosexual persons deserve respect, justice and pastoral care. The Vatican and Pope John Paul II are speaking out against the growing number of places that recognize same-sex marriages.
CHURCH OF ENGLAND:In the Church of England, many Anglican clergy already bless same-sex couples on an unofficial basis but there is no authorised ceremony in England.
Its first openly gay bishop - Gene Robinson of New Hampshire - visited the UK in November 2005 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Changing Attitude, a group which campaigns for equality for lesbian and gay Anglicans in Britain.
Robinson was married for 13 years and has 2 daughters. He has lived in a close relationship with his partner, Mark Andrews, for more than 16 years.
His election as bishop prompted a group of 19 bishops, led by Bishop Robert Duncan of Pittsburgh Diocese, to make a statement warning of a possible schism between the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.
Quakers have been welcoming same-sex unions for almost two decades. In 1987, British Quakers agreed that local groups could celebrate same-sex commitments through special acts of worship.
The Quakers were the first member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland to sanction the official blessing of same-sex relationships.
A same-sex commitment follows a similar format to a Quaker wedding. The couple exchange vows within their worshipping community.
Robert Card, co-clerk of the Quaker Lesbian and Gay Fellowship said: "There aren't many religious lesbian and gay groups which can cheerfully endorse their faith group's position. Quakers can."
The United Church of Christ became the largest Christian denomination in the United States to endorse gay marriage in July 2005.
The Church passed a resolution in favor of same-sex marriage and called on its 1.3 million-strong membership to back wedding policies "that do not discriminate against couples based on gender."
In an article in the Chicago Tribune, journalist Ron Grossman: "Religions are not immune to a basic law of history: Everything changes. Over time, some faiths become more conservative, others more liberal.“
