The word Gay can be very powerful to some people and cultures. To the countries that are against it I understand their beliefs but there’s no need to kill your own people for being Gay. Gay is a right to people not a punishment that’s waiting to happen. Most of the gays men families don’t even know, they tell their families that they have a girlfriend and watc... ... middle of paper ... ...ou were a witch or was doing things for the Devil. Instantly the courts would take that person and say that they are guilty till proven innocence.
The people who create laws saw order as the homosexuals staying to their ghetto, or little section of New York or no gay people at all. While stonewalls people were being entrapped by the authorities because of their sexual orientation. The stonewall riots caused disorder in the regular every day lives of the American people, gay rights were constantly under attack. Going back to the Detective speaking to the children on the many dangers of being homosexuals he says one third of them will turn queer and when this happens the police will tell their parents and they will be caught (Stonewall Uprising, 14:39) they were using fear as a weapon. This is a threat to establish the order they want to achieve.
A love between two of the same sex should not be discriminated and endure the benefits of marriage that heterosexuals have. Same sex marriage has been a social issue since the late 1980s, when AIDS and HIV were first identified. Gays and Lesbians were refused service by businesses, churches, and even hospitals. Those of religious beliefs may think gay marriage is wrong because in the Bible, certain verses are to claim that homosexuals
On July 24, 1991, the news broke. Thirty-one year old Jeffrey Dahmer had been taken into custody in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Shortly before, police had been alerted by a terrified man, Tracy Edwards, still in handcuffs, who just escaped from a nearby apartment where he had been lured in by a man offering him a beer (Lane 126). Had the man not escaped, he would have been slaughtered by a butcher knife. Unfortunately for police, they had another opportunity to catch Dahmer in the act, but they failed miserably.
Hassell commented, the First Amendment does not permit a person to burn a cross in a manner that intentionally places another person in fear of bodily harm.” The Virginia Supreme Courts decision overturned the convictions of the two men who were charged in two incidents of cross burnings. Hating another person just because of their race is not just affecting the adults, but it has a huge impact on our children. An anonymous teen responded to the Public Broadcast Stations hate crime topic via the talkback forum on their website.

In addition, it is important to note that in the United States’ Congress is still making laws that forbid gay marriage. These laws deny a segment of the population (homosexuals) the same right same as the majority: to marry. It is high time the government did something to stop the discrimination of same-sex couples and abolish these laws. Both cases (Hawaii, 1993, and Massachusetts, 2004) had a legal response. In 1996 Bob Barr, a Republican, introduced a bill banning same-sex marriages.
Therefore, if you don 't allow certain people the same rights that are given to a heterosexual couple, you ate discriminating the same way interracial marriage was until 1967 when an African American woman and a white man took their case to the Supreme Court. Martin Luther King Jr. fought for equality in the mid 1950’s until his assassination in 1968. Now homosexuals are doing the same thing for same-sex marriage. There 's actually a lot of murders that have happened towards homosexuals because of “homophobia”. In Russia, a man was beaten to death by his supposed friends after he told them he was a homosexual, they “reportedly decided to taunt him by making him walk home naked and began ripping off his clothes.” and he was also “raped with beer bottles and severely beaten,” But they didn 't stop there “After the brutal assault the suspects reportedly left, but later returned after realizing that the victim would call the police when he regained consciousness.” (rt.com) It makes me sick that people would do such thing to a human being who just wanted to be honest.
But we don’t feel it’s the same as civil rights, seems more like devil rights to us…80% of serial killers are homosexual”(00:29:28-00:31:02). The jurors disregarded this information even though it’s a clear motive for his behavior that night. The jurors in the case did not get the full picture of what occurred that night but they along with the media and prosecution went on racialized fears of gang violence. The media and prosecutors described the women as violent gang members. Attack of the Killer Lesbians, Lesbian Wolf Pack Guilty, and Girls Gone Wilding, were all articles from the New York Post and New York Daily News that portrayed the women as vicious thugs.
You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.” –Rick Warren The issue in today’s society is that you either have to love homosexuals and agree with them or you have to hate them and disagree with how they live their life. I find this to be untrue. My opinion is that you can love them but that doesn’t mean you have to accept their lifestyle. Homosexuality has been in our world forever. There have been stories from ancient times mentioning people having homosexual activity.
Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable (New International Version Bible, Leviticus 18:22). Many religions believe that procreation is the most important to human existence and same-sex ... ... middle of paper ... ...gs are changing with the courts recognizing that gay couples should have the same rights to marry as the heterosexual couples. Throughout history gay marriage has been there, legal and illegal. Then the rise of Christianity began changing things and soon gay marriage became uncommon and a sin. In the 21st century some religions and laws are still discriminating against them.
