Should Christians be for or against homosexual marriage, unions, and adoptions?

Is it right to “force” biblical beliefs on a nation that is primarily non-Christian?  

The Bible is described as God’s voice.  Even though our nation and others are not primarily Christians, God is sovereign over them.  When a nation’s leaders or people disregard, disrespect, and disobey God, there are consequences.  When we ignore the Bible it shows we are ignoring God by shutting our ears to His voice.
God tells us through the prophet Samuel that: (1 Samuel 12:14-15) “If you will fear the LORD and serve him and obey his voice and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, and if both you and the king who reigns over you will follow the LORD your God, it will be well. [15] But if you will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then the hand of the LORD will be against you and your king.”
We (Christians) should want it to go well for our country, its people and its leaders.  We don’t want our God against our nation.  Moralism will not save our nation.  A God-centered heart will rescue our nation from further consequences of our sin.  We need to pray that our nation begins to fear, serve, and obey the Lord and stop rebelling against His good plan.
Do not love the world or the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. [16] For all that is in the world - the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life - is not from the Father but from the world. (1 John 2:15-16)
