June 25, 2015 will go down as a historic day in human liberation. This is the day when The United States of America, through five of the nine members of its Supreme Court made a ruling that marriage between people of the same sex legal. This ruling allows people in a same sex marriage to enjoy all of the legal benefits of marriage just like those of the opposite sex who are married.
The United States has become the 23rd nation to legalize gay marriage joining with The Netherlands, 2001, Belgium, 2003,Canada, 2005, Spain, 2005, South Africa, 2006, Norway, 2009, Sweden, 2009, Portugal, 2010, Argentina, 2010, Iceland, 2010, Denmark, 2012, Brazil, 2013, England, 2013, France, 2013, New Zealand, 2013, Uruguay, 2013, Luxembourg, 2014, Scotland, 2014, Finland, 2015, Slovenia, 2015, The Republic of Ireland, 2015,and Mexico, 2015. The United States Supreme Court decision adds 321 million people to the potential liberation pool. It also puts the total of the world population which offers this particular type of liberation over the 1 billion mark.
While there is indeed cause for celebration, it must be remembered that this only represents 10% of the nations in the world and 12% of the world’s population. These are also predominantly Christian nations. Not one Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu or Jewish nation has joined in this aspect of human liberation. There are 81 nations where homosexuality is illegal. In these 81 nations, people can be punished for love. Homosexuality is punishable by death in ten nations, Iran, Iraq, Mauritania, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates. In these ten nations, people can literally be put to death for love.
Those who have outlawed homosexuality have used their holy books to justify it. Those who have made it a cause to inflict the death penalty have as well. ISIS throws homosexuals off of high rise buildings. They use their pseudo religious rhetoric based on a psychotic invented religion that they claim is Islam. The fact that psychopaths like ISIS are killing homosexuals ought to show you how wrong it is. God does not and never has, condemned homosexuals. People do. Those who use what they claim to be God’s Word to do it are misinterpreting God’s word. They are, in fact, claiming to be God because only God can take a life for only God can give life.
While it is wonderful that the United States has joined with other nations in contributing to world liberation and human rights there is still work to be done. 10% of anything is significant but it still leaves 90% to go. The closer humanity gets to full human rights in every nation, the closer humanity gets to full human liberation. The closer humanity gets to full human liberation, the closer humanity gets to knowing god. Celebrate today but continue the fight tomorrow.
