Love that Must Win

Love wins, Hurray! But not so fast! After so much bigotry, hate, and hurt in our world, it certainly ought to be good news to hear of the triumph of love. But exactly what kind of love? The SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) ruling on same-sex marriage raises two gaping questions on the boundaries of love: Why shouldn’t I marry who or what I love (male or female, adult or child, sibling or distant, human or animal) and as many as I want (simultaneously or serially)? Who defines the boundaries of love (the courts, politicians, society, tradition, or I myself)? As I see it: None can live without Love//It’s the cure for hearts that starve//A Personal gift from our Father above// For “God is love” (1 John 4:8, 16). The ruling of this God, the ultimate Supreme Court of the Universe, is the LOVE that must win on relationships, intimacy, and marriage.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim.
