Marriage must be between a man and woman

Published 12/02/2014

WITH reference to Liam Clarke's article about same-sex laws (DebateNI, February 6), I would simply like to say that, as a practicing Christian who takes God seriously and so believes the Bible's teaching and prophesies and guidelines, I have to adhere to what it says about homosexuality as much as to any other subject.

So, as marriage is ordained by God in the first place and as being between a male and female for procreation, then you might consider that anything else suggested by man as being a marriage does not actually make it one in the true sense of the term.

Just because Nothern Ireland has not jumped on the bandwagon to be the same as all the other places making a mockery of the true status of marriage, it does not make the province a weird place.
