When Sikhism teaches that everyone is equal, and that the purpose of Sikh marriage is essentially Oneness - a couple coming together to make Waheguru the centre of their lives - then does the couple have to be heterosexual? I recently had come across a brief article that said that Akal Takht wants to prevent same-sex marriages from being held in Gurdwaras. But this to me seems anti-Sikh. I don't think I have ever come across a shabad- albeit I definitely have not read all that much - that says anything about homosexuality. We have to see everyone as One......and preoccupying ourselves with who marries who, won't help us develop our connection with Waheguru. Sikhs are supposed to uplift others, and strive for equality for all. So then why should same-sex marriage be banned?
