Known for expressing his opinions against same-sex marriage in the past, the Super Junior member retweeted a news article as well as two Biblical passages to confirm his position on the controversial matter.
When previously asked about sexually ambiguous roles the actor revealed, “I will respectfully refuse any such offers. While I respect all genders, I do not wish to acknowledge homosexuals as I have been taught that God created Man and Woman with specific characteristics and duties. I realize that with globalization, there are many [entertainers] who do not share my views. There are those who are value-oriented and those who are success-oriented. However shouldn’t an actor deliver an image to his audience through roles he chooses to portray, based on his beliefs in life?”
However, fans were quick to note that despite this answer, Siwon does not hesitate to share skinship with other males. An old collage of photos showing intimate interactions between he and Super Junior power vocalist Kyuhyun was brought up because of this.
His recent tweets confirm his stance against same-sex marriage as he stated he aligns strongly with the beliefs of his religion.
The recent case revolves around Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses. She was ordered to jail last Thursday but has been released this Tuesday on September 8th. She insisted that issuing these licenses was against her religious beliefs and therefore refused to do so.
I salute him for standing firm in what he truly believes in and not backing down because of his celebrity status. He´s a public figure, a christian and opinions against same sex marriage are always marginalized so it definitely takes courage to have spoken like he did. Being a christian myself, I understand him more and hope people will understand too. We all have different opinions on almost everything in life, depending on our background, our culture and our beliefs. As long as we respect each other, I dont think problems would arise.
Again, Siwon might be against the act but he truly respects and loves the people. As long as we respect each other, I dont think problems would arise.
