Not only does some humans have a problem with individuals being gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender; people also has an issue with same sex marriage. Love and marriage shouldn 't have a gender to it, because love just happens. People shouldn 't sacrifice their happiness in marrying someone who doesn 't make them happy just to be accepted and not be judged. Even through, president Obama legalize same sex marriage on June 26, 2015 in all 50 state, there still individuals who are opposing this law. 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.

I think that there should be an overall vote if the congress really wants to take it that far, and see which side wins. There are so many things that we can look at that can help to see if it is better to ban gay marriage or to allow it. It is giving all people the right to marry whomever they chose to, and it shows them that just because they are a little different does not mean that they do not belong in the world. Now there are some bad aspects to allowing gay marriage, but there are some bad aspects to almost everything in the world.
Most of society will say they support equal rights for homosexuals. Ask the same members if they support gay marriage and they become hesitant. Recently the majority of Americans will vote for the Constitutional Amendment, which puts a ban on gay marriage. Ironically, these same Americans do believe in the equal rights to the gay community just like any other heterosexual citizen. In my personal opinion, gay marriage should be globally accepted The biggest misunderstanding in this hot topic is that those of the gay community have a "choice" to whom they can feel attracted to but simply choose to be gay.
Gays and lesbians are going to want to be together (some are lucky enough to meet that special someone), basically why not give them the right to be an equal citizen? The fact that churches do not want them to get married is not the focus; the difference is that Sullivan wants the government to take action. He’s simply asking for the government’s approval to allow a civil marriage. No one has the choice to be white, black, female, male, gay, hetero, etc. As a response to Bill Bennett,... ... middle of paper ... ...on different scenarios.
Since then, views have changed and people began to realize love is love and marriage between homosexuals should be legal to maintain equality within the states. Gay marriage should be legalized within the United States because it will provide happiness and equality for many people. First of all, the main concern with gay marriage has been the religious views of many people. Gay marriage has been stuck in the closet (pun intended) because the government tries to keep everyone politically and religiously happy. Second, states are beginning to realize that gay marriage is not the worst thing in the world and are slowly legalizing it.
“The real question that should be debated is not whether gay marriage should be allowed, but rather, is marriage something we need anymore?” this quote was said by David Vaklis addressing that if people aren’t going to accept homosexuals, then why should we have marriage. The debate is whether people will accept homosexuals, and, will gay marriages be legalized across the United States and not just in certain areas. Even though it is against traditional marriage religion, gay marriage shall be legalized because being in love with the same sex shouldn’t be a problem and why shouldn’t everyone be treated equally. People are against it because of the “image” of our country if we legalize it worldwide, how America as a nation would look. This could start so many new problems but solve many.
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.
On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry. Many conservative groups do NOT agree with this decision. The believe that gay marriage should not be permitted but civil unions should be granted to lesbians and homosexuals. On the other hand there is a large group that believes neither gay marriage nor civil unions should be offered to gay and lesbian couples and that any legal union should be available to heterosexual couples only. The different opinions that are expressed by society’s attitudes towards gay marriage continue to cause great controversy throughout the country, and should come to a halt by allowing homosexuals to wed.
The history of our country is that of expanding civil rights. This fundamental civil right should be afforded to all loving and committed adult couples throughout our country not just opposite-sex couples. Reticence to understand homosexuality causes many straights to not be comfortable with homosexuality and believe same-sex marriage is unnatural. Furthermore, many straights cite religious reasons as just cause for not legalizing same-sex marriages. Same-sex marriages should be legalized in the United States.
Our civil rights and The Constitution give us many liberties. One of over civil liberties is the pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to follow. Homosexual cannot be married to the person they loved, which violates their freed... ... middle of paper ... ...es. Even though to most people gay marriage should be illegal and should stay in its current state, I believe we need to change the world for future generations. We feared that different religions were going to clash, but now all of the religions coexist.
