Pitt should be proud denying same-sex
Ramesh C. Reddy
The University of
Pittsburgh administration has done the right thing to deny same-sex
benefits to homosexual partners. It is a shame that our nation has gone
this low that we are willing to accept homosexuality to the point we
want to give them benefits.
Giving them same-sex
benefits acknowledges what they are doing is not wrong when in fact it
is. Whatever religion you look into, you will never find homosexuality
condoned in any of their religious books.
This nation was founded on
Judea-Christian principles and has its foundation on the Word of God.
The Bible clearly forbids homosexuality. Pitt’s decision may not be
because they have looked to the Bible but they still are making the
Benefits are supposed to
be for heterosexual married couples and not anyone who lives together
including heterosexual couples. There are advantages of getting married
and to give non-married couple the same benefits as married couples does
not seem right.
Same-sex partners argue
that it is illegal for them to marry in Pennsylvania so they cannot get
benefits. That’s the way life goes for some advantages are offered to
only heterosexual married couples. There is a reason why homosexual
marriages are illegal in Pennsylvania. It goes against common law,
tradition, and the Word of God. To allow benefits is making a mockery of
those who are married.
There are those institutes
of higher learning in Pennsylvania that offer same-sex benefits but that
does not make what they are doing right. It boggles my mind how
homosexuality is still accepted. It is wrong and should not be accepted.
This is not to say that we hate homosexuals. On the contrary, we love
the person and hate the sin.
People have changed from
what they have been and homosexuals can change with the Word of God and
live a heterosexual life. If in doubt, they only need to look to
testimonies from people who are and have been in Exodus International.
The struggle against homosexuality is not wrong but acting on it is. But
the Good News is that Jesus can forgive us no matter how many times we
mess up, when we turn to Him and ask Him to help us. A contrite and
broken heart the Lord will not ignore!
Pitt is going in the right
direction regardless of the money it has cost them in court battles.
They have my vote!
