Gay marriage Is one the most controversial issues of today’s society, especially in America. The main arguments against gay marriage consists of the fact marriage Is supposed to be between one man and one woman, gay relationships are sins, and homophobes. Barack Obama once said “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, and then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. ” He is saying if we are created equal then why are we treated differently based n who we love.
Love is between two people. Two people meaning It could be two men, two women, or a man and a woman, but It doesn’t matter because Its love. Marriage Is Just showing the world you found the person you love so why does It matter if it’s heterosexual or not. “Being gay is a sin. ” That’s what you hear when it comes to a gay relationship, but premarital sex is also a sin and majority of the people saying that have already lost their innocence. The solution is an amendment to the U. S. Constitution defining a marriage between two people rather than Just teen a man and a woman.
Religions are perfectly within their rights to not recognize the marriages. Homosexuals would likely have the legal right to marry In certain states within a couple of years. Both sides have a reason to be unhappy, but both sides also have a reason to feel better. A dedicated Christian will say that homosexuality is a sin because it’s written in the bible, Leviticus 1 8:22 “Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. ” (Religious Fundamentalism). If we think about the meaning of abomination.
In the dictionary Is defined by “anything abominable; anything greatly disliked or abhorred. ” Now, that doesn’t mean that it is a sin, but something we don’t “like”. That same definition was given to the mix of fabric in Leviticus 19:19 shall keep my statutes. Thou shall not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shall not sow thy field with two kinds of seed: neither shall there come upon thee a garment of two kinds of stuff mingled together”. But as we know we don’t discriminate or exclude any one of their human rights due to the fact that they mix ton and cashmere.
A person that accepts homosexuality doesn’t necessarily mean they will accept same sex marriage, they will say that marriage Is a holy union between a man and a woman, or that children will be confused. That Is condescending. In the dictionary the definition of marriage is “a legally, religiously, or socially sanctioned union of persons who commit to one another, forming a familial and economic bond: Anthropologists say that some type of marriage has been found In every society, past and present” To defend same sex marriage we can use Stuart
Mill’s Theory of utilitarianism – This theory indicates that the criterion of morality is promote general happiness, even though same sex marriage doesn’t promote general happiness, utilitarianism defends that we shouldn’t renounce our own happiness. The principal of happiness of Stuart Mill indicates that each individual doesn’t separate his/her own happiness, and keep having projects and life goals. Mackerel Indicates In his song the fear of the lack of acceptance can lead to to Stuart Mill, the hate and the homophobia is wrong due to the consequences it dads to.
The sad but true truth, you can’t chose to be straight, like others don’t chose to be gay. Being gay isn’t a choice but it sure can be accepted. The law against gay marriage is unfair, it puts the superstition that gay is wrong into the brains of many people, changes the views of others. It forces you to pick a side for or against and we assume it means completely but honestly you should Just have to be for their happiness to be for it. No one should have to be executed because they like the same sex, yet more than Alfa of the countries in the world execute you for it.
Being gay should be no different than having black skin or speaking French or being a woman, we are all people and we should all have the same rights. If you think being gay is wrong because the bible says so, what ever happened to the separation of church from state? You should be able to vote on what’s right for the people not based on your religious views. We are legalizing the use and distribution of Marijuana all over the United States, so why is legalizing gay marriage worse than giving kids another drug choice. Being gay isn’t lethal, being around gay people doesn’t kill you, smoking, that kills you.
How can you even begin to legalize things like smoking when you still believe being gay is so wrong, so against being human, you shouldn’t have the right to choose or force these people to choose between family, state, and love, that an unfair choice. The government can’t expect us not to sympathize if you really think about it, even if you despise gay people is this really all that bad, you don’t have to associate with them. Sure you don’t want to see them making out in the streets but be honest do oh really want to see a straight couple swapping spit as you walk down the road either.
It’s the same concept in different terms. Imagine a world with no fighting, where everyone is accepted and everyone is equal, can you see it? I can’t, yes I said can’t. I can’t see a world like that ever being a possibility if we don’t try to see others for who they are accept them as people and love and embrace them. It won’t be easy but hell who told you life was easy. Bullying is a huge deal in America right now, we have campaigns and anti-bullying videos to ray and stop bulling before it happens.
Honestly though if you thing about it aren’t we all bullying gays by not letting them be happy with who they please. Don’t we bully them into thinking they are no good, that what they are is wrong. They can’t change who they are and we sure as hell can’t change them either. Imagine someone walking up to you and saying I don’t like the way your heart beats change it. Physically that isn’t possible is it? Well did you ever think that this is basically what we are asking gay people to do? Change your heart, because we don’t like the way it beats.
