Gay marriage is one the most controversial issues of today’s society, especially in America. The main arguments against gay marriage consists of the fact marriage is supposed to be between one man and one woman, gay relationships are sins, and homophobes.

That same definition was given to the mix of fabric in Leviticus 19:19 “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle...
