Marriage by the Book_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why Gay Marriage is an Oxymoron
When the Lord created marriage,
it was clear He had a plan.
He designed a lifetime union
'tween a woman and a man.
He intended they'd have children.
That is why their bodies fit.
And this opposite attraction
was the world's survival kit.
Married man and married woman
is a universal norm,
though the ceremonies vary
as do licenses and forms.
Just ask Webster, he will tell you.
Marriage means a groom and bride.
That's inherent in its meaning.
There is nothing else implied.
It assumes that men and women
pledge commitment to be faithful
with a kiss and pen and ink.
Marriage is a holy calling.
It's a contract of two lives.
It's a legal binding promise
made by husbands and their wives.
It's a bond God sees as sacred.
It's a covenant of love.
It's a metaphor of Oneness
like the Trinity above.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
