Another point why this topic is very controversial is when gay people marry each other. Many people believe and many religions believe it is very wrong to marry the same sex person. For example in the Roman Catholic followings. The church is totally against gay and lesbian relationships, because it if you do follow the gay and lesbian side its considered a big sin because in the teachings of GOD and Jesus you have to be with the opposite sex so you can make life. The 2 perspectives that are drawn on this topic is that the 1st perspective is that you see the topic as very reasonable.
Is it that religion is a large structure base that those in society are guided by? Or is it that individuals do not understand that marriage is a union between two individuals who are in love? Whatever the case may be, there is always someone who has to argue that homosexual marriage is “wrong.” Sam Schulman argues that homosexual marriage is about the duties or roles that these couples perform that would be different from that of heterosexual couples. In his article Gay Marriage -- and Marriage the author directs his argument towards those who are "passionately and instinctively opposed to the idea of homosexual marriage" (Schulman, 2003). Schulman blames legalization of homosexual marriage as the cause for the possible permission of incest.
Amend. ... ... middle of paper ... ...port their church's views on homosexuality. This can range from quietly discouraging homosexual activity, explicitly forbidding same-sex sexual practices among people and actively opposing the social acceptance of homosexuality. Most who are opposed to homosexuality argue that homosexual sexual activity is a sin, not the sexual orientation. Christians think that sex was for procreation, not for pleasure; women and slaves were considered property to be owned by males, and many expressions of heterosexuality, like homosexuality, were considered unholy.
Marriage is seen as a religious sacrament, and a homosexual couples do not fit the specific criteria that had been put in place. On the other hand there are individuals who are all about gay marriage. I mean, why not? What harm would it do if it does not affect you directly? Many feel that not allowing homosexuals not to marry is a denial of a basic right.
The discrimination on the basis of homosexuality is a subject of much debate. In this paper I shall discuss an argument by Jeff Jordan to the conclusion that it is wrong and immoral to discriminate on homosexuals and how they do not differ from heterosexuals. In this paper I will show that Jeff Jordan’s argument, that it is right to discriminate on homosexuals is moral, is not very convincing because it is based on a questionable premise. I will use an argument from Andrew Sullivan to show how weak Jordan’s premise is on the basis of homosexuality. Then finish off with my views on the basis of homosexuality.
He actually uses this with his example of slaves to point out how the context was interpreted differently because of the time period and that the moral beliefs have changed. That is most definitely an excellent point. But let us give the arguer the side that they are right and that it is wrong under biblical teachings, even today, that people succumb to their homosexual desires and that they live a lifestyle as a homosexual. But can we say that they are being immoral? Yes, maybe they are not completely practicing what they believe but they are not moral accountable for all their actions, just like hetersexuals are not morally accountable for their all actions.
Religion is a major aspect on why society believes that homosexuality is wrong and should not be accepted. Individuals who are against the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) community because of their religion believe that “homosexuality is a horrid transgression of God’s plan” (Bawer 74). They consider them sinners because they are going against God’s original intention; relationships should be between a man and a woman. Nia Augustin is a member of the Christian community and believes that supporting or being homosexual goes against her religion beliefs. In her interview, Augustin stated, “I have been told that the purpose of a man and woman being together is to reproduce, but a homosexual couple cannot do that, so that's not of God.” Homosexuality is sinful and wrong in the eyes of religious individuals because it involves sex that does not produce life.
The Constitution and Homosexuality Many people who are opposed to Gay Rights say that it is a sin to be gay and that is why we should limited the rights of homosexuals. If the government stays consistent when removing rights of all those who sin, then no one
What would it feel like if heterosexuals got their rights taken away? Homosexuals cannot do a lot of things heterosexuals can due to their sexuality. Gays should be able to have the same rights as straights. In this paper, it will discuss what rights are taken away from them, what they are not able to do, and what impact they have made on straight individuals. While homosexual rights can occur in some states, it more often discriminated against by most of the world.
Several other states are also debating whether or not to allow these couples to marry. Unfortunately, the dispute has left the United States' homosexual community in an awkward position. There are some people who think that gay people have no rights and should never be allowed to marry, and others believe that gay people should enjoy the same rights and privileges as heterosexuals. I think that the United States should allow same-sex couples to marry just like heterosexual couples. There are many opponents of gay people as it is, and they all have their reasons to dislike the idea of permitting them get married.
