Is God a homosexual?

Written by Zackary Mejia, Staff Writer

Religious institutions and organizations have been the only community within society that ardently works to villainize, criminalize and more recently shun the homosexual community.

It is interesting to see the evolution of God’s homophobia mediated through his worshipers, from the 16th century where the first laws against sodomy and “acts against nature” were set forth in England and followed suit by her colonies in the Americas, where the punishment for sodomy was commonly death, to the 20th century where, until 1973, homosexuality was considered a mental disorder.

There are many political moves that all religious sects whether it be the Jews, various Christian denominations and Muslims have united in opinion and action to keep the LGBT community from attaining the rights that the rest of us enjoy.

On the right to same sex marriage, God’s acolytes whisper into the ears of politicians to not only stop these “immoral” ideas but to advocate that citizens break the law on the basis that their religious rights be impeded on.

Yet despite his views he still has a great interest in the gay community, some might say an obsession. His actions would natural lead us all to ask an important question: Is God a closet homosexual?”

A well-known incident of this idiotic behavior was seen last year when Kim Davis, a Kentucky county-clerk, refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple, claiming that God’s authority overrules the U.S Supreme Courts.

It would be conservative to say that Ms. Davis fell on her head that morning and believed that she was in the 16th century England or that she is unaware that the United States, the country she and her kind so patriotically adore, is a secular nation.

No, Kim Davis’s actions were not of ignorance but insincerity. Like her devout brothers in religion in the Middle East, Ms. Davis believed that the ones who shout the loudest control the room, no matter how few they may be.

Most people would consider Ms. Davis to be a fluke in human nature. That it isn’t possible in our modern society that there could be this many people who still hold these illogical premonitions and are willing to act upon them.

Well I would bet that most people aren’t versed in American politics. One would find that God still holds sway in some, if not most, of the men and women who lead our diverse nation.

His will has infiltrated our justice system through the late Justice Scalia’s comments that questioned the authority that the Supreme Court has and more recently, the ethics investigation against Texas attorney general, Ken Paxon, over the claim that he advised local officials that they could refuse to issue marriage licenses.

One does not need to look very far or change the channel to see the blatant religious influence in the presidential race. Mike Huckabee’s public appearances with Kim Davis where he vowed that should she be convicted of her actions he’ll serve her time instead and Ted Cruz who questioned the authority the Supreme Court has to make a judgement on gay marriage.

To ideate the type of person God is in our society, he would be quick to anger at the slightest inclination of having a positive conversation about homosexuality. Yet despite his views he still has a great interest in the gay community, some might say an obsession. His actions would natural lead us all to ask an important question: Is God a closet homosexual?
