People confuse the separation of church and state to mean that you shouldn’t be able to say any social policy with your church also happens to hold in the state realm.
For example, many people will not vote against gay marriage because they say of separation of church and state forbids it; they say, ‘my church doesn’t believe in gay marriage and so we’re not going to vote for that.’
All the government is is a set of social constructs; if you refuse to voice your opinion on every social contract just because it’s tied to religion, then your government will be one that will collapse on itself.
You need to do everything you can to preserve society from collapsing as a decent human being who doesn’t want society to fall into anarchy.
You need to voice your opinion on social things; for example, some things are inherently wrong, all church aside. These can include incest rape homosexuality pedophilia murder theft and so forth; those are inherently wrong. Being those things makes you a bad person.
There are other things such as paying your tithing; if you don’t pay your tithing, it doesn’t make you a bad person, it just makes you a non-religious person. If you do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Savior, it does not make you a bad person, it just makes you a non-Christian person. Those are religious tenants, and we do not seek to make these religious items national law. However, we do seek to make important social standards into law.
For example – if you lived in a society where it was okay to have rape, how’s that going to affect your children? It’s going to brainwash them into thinking that rape is okay. Your society will collapse, so you morally ought to, as a decent human being, go to the polls and vote that no rape should be legal.
Children raised by non-biological parents do not even begin to compare with the success of children from biological parents. This is one of the many reasons that homosexual marriage is inherently harmful to children, and thus evil which would lead to the downfall of civilization as we know it.
We can say with great confidence that, all church aside, it is against social and biological human nature to be homosexual and we should not allow our society to embrace that lifestyle.
