If president Obama believe that everyone was created equal and that he had made the union a little more perfect, why are other people trying to fight and screw up the almost perfect America. It blows my mind how people are so negative to other people life and happiness. Like if someone wants to get married with the same sex and be happy; let them it’s not you that getting married to the same sex; so why does someone else happiness has too involved rude negative people. Moreover, “just because same sex marriage is weakling the traditional marriages does not mean anything” (Zorn). I saw so many couples who are in the lesbian gay bisexual and transgender communities that had posted there married on YouTube and still are married to this
Same sex couples look at being denied the right to legally marry each other as their freedom of speech being taken away, but in actuality they are only expressing their love. Legalizing gay marriage will not damage society. If same sex marriage were legal everywhere in the United States, society will still function normally and no family values will be lost. If gay marriage is legal in seventeen, why must the other thirty three states continue to ban same sex marriage? How can we all be equal if we are being denied certain rights because of who we love?
Andrew Sullivan’s essay, “Let Gays Marry,” is about how gays and lesbians have long been alienated from their basic rights as American citizens. He argues that allowing gays to marry will not drastically change the description of marriage as we know it, but will simply entitle same sex partners to devote themselves to each other, and declare their love for each other. The Supreme Court made an influential ruling that “’a state cannot deem a class of persons a stranger to its laws.’”(25) Sullivan argues that that is just what America has been doing by not legally recognizing domestic partners of the same sex. He claims that “at some point in our lives, some of us are lucky enough to meet the person we truly love,” (25) gays included. Sullivan recognizes that many religious organizations are against homosexuality, but this country has a separation of church and state that makes that argument arbitrary in terms of legality.
This is important because we should all be able to get married when we see fit in our lives, no matter who we want our spouse to be. I think that everyone deserves the right to be married, and I do not think that the government should be able to dictate who we marry. You also have to think about the fact that being gay is not always a choice. There have been several studies that have shown that someone being gay is the way that they are born, not what they choose. This being said, a great example of this would be a person that has mental retardation, they are still allowed to get married when they want to in their lives, so why not gay people.
Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals. For example, some people think that letting homosexual become an official union redefines the idea of marriage all together. (Rauch) Rauch states, “ I think the best definition of marriage is the one that most married people sign up for in their vows; “To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, until death do us part.” Extending the boundaries to include gay couples does not weaken that definition-it reinforces it.” The gay community embodies the idea of loving no matter who they are we should not pass judgment on them because they are not the pretty picture of a happy ma and women behind their white picket fence with children. Most Americans often believe that same sex marriages will diminish the value of the marriage itself. Which is a false conclusion based on a bias premise.
God loves everyone equally the same and they feel like if God can still love them, why cannot we. Therefore, homosexuals who want to be married just want the same rights and treatments as heterosexuals. Legalizing gay marriage has caused many problems in the society today. The U.S. Constitution is making some people go against their religious beliefs because of this law. I personally do not think people should have to go against their religion to support something that God would not be pleased with.
Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage. Seventeen states have legalized same-sex marriage; Thirty-three states banned same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage provides a more stable environment for children of gay couples. Legalizing same-sex marriage does not affect or harm heterosexual marriages. Marriage is a union of love, not a union of genders.
If two people show that they deeply care about each other enough to commit their life to one another then they should be able to get married. When it comes to parenting “two parents are better than one good parent, but one good parent is better than two bad parents. And gender make... ... middle of paper ... ...hts that gays would have. No one wants to be denied their rights that everyone should have. In conclusion denying anyone human rights is just wrong.
Marriage is when two people are brought together to share their life together for the rest of their lives. It really should not matter whether or not it is the same sex or two people of different genders that want to commit the rest of their life to someone. There are many reasons why gay marriage should be allowed. Marriage benefits, it violates equal rights, it is allowing more children to become adopted and have loving homes, it encourages family values, there are financial benefits, but above all it doesn’t hurt anyone if two people of the same gender want to be married. Love should be one of the many reasons people marry and anyone is capable of loving another person.
That problem has a simple answer(s) and its called adoption, or artificial insemination. So although same-sex couples cannot procreate, they can still create a good stable home just as well or even better than opposite sex couples. Gay rights are a serious problem in the United States of America. The government has given Americans the permission to choose whether a man and a man or a woman and a woman can get married. Over half of Americans have denied the right for other people to have the privilege of being in love and taking that final step to commitment.
