For Same-Sex Marriage, from Argentina

I am seeking a translation — I will add when I receive one.Ask and I have received! from Jocelyn Gardner Spencer — many thanks!

What love has joined together

That which love has joined together
shall not be separated by hate
or suppressed by censorship,
shall not be hidden by fear
or covered by shame,
shall not be discriminated against by prejudice
or condemned by ignorance,
shall not be stigmatized by theology
or prohibited by any religion.
That which love has joined together
shall not be punished by any false morality
or targeted by hypocrisy,
shall not be imprisoned by right or left
or entangled by any discourse,
shall not be crucified by heartbreak
or entombed by grudges.
That which love has joined together,
love of men or of women,
love of ones alike or different,
love of souls that find each other
of lives that love each other,
of projects that are dreamed of
and of dreams that want to be lived,
love that makes known its faithfulness,
love that does not betray what it feels,
love that cannot stop loving,
should be, simply must be…
May that which love has joined together
live always in the freedom of love.
That which love has joined together
has been joined by God and is of God.
Because, in case we do not remember: God is love.
 

Lo que el amor ha unido

Aquello que el amor ha unido
no lo separe el odio
ni lo reprima la censura,
no lo esconda el miedo
ni lo cubra la vergüenza,
no lo discrimine el prejuicio
ni lo condene la ignorancia,
no lo estigmatice la teología
ni lo prohíba ninguna religión.
Aquello que el amor ha unido
no lo castigue ninguna falsa moral
ni lo señale la hipocresía,
no lo encarcelen derechas ni izquierdas
ni lo enrede ningún discurso,
no lo crucifiquen los desamores
ni lo sepulten los rencores.

Aquello que el amor ha unido,
amor de hombres o de mujeres,
amor de iguales o de diferentes,
amor de almas que se encuentran,
de vidas que se quieren,
de proyectos que se sueñan
y de sueños que quieren vivirse,
amor que se sabe fiel al amor,
amor que no traiciona lo que siente,
amor que no puede dejar de amar,
debe ser, simplemente debe ser…

Que aquello que el amor ha unido
viva siempre en la libertad del amor.

Aquello que el amor ha unido
lo ha unido Dios y es de Dios.
Porque, si no lo recordamos: Dios es amor.

Gerardo Oberman
