Parents also have a responsibility to there unborn child, but not all Christians believe life begins at conception but many do. Catholics do believe that life begins at conception and the Pope forbids all forms of contraception. Most groups say that sex with the right attitude is good and unwanted pregnancy should be avoided. The Pope has never proclaimed an infallible teaching on abortion, although the Pope and most Bishops believe it is morally wrong. In countries where Catholicism is the dominant faith it has held out against abortion being legalised, this is not always successful e.g.
Religious differences often add to racism, for example, ... ... middle of paper ... ...d in God's image, are equal in the eyes of God. Therefore Christians should denounce racism wherever they see it. However, this can be very difficult, as was the case in Nazi Germany and South Africa. In these countries the governments could set laws and had control of the police and army to enforce them. There were consequences for people who opposed the government's views and therefore, although many Christians did speak out, both they and their families suffered because of this and many others stayed silent although this was against their beliefs.
Many religious leaders and followers have spoken out against this law. The Bible tells us a lot about everything, but one thing that we must hold true in order to follow Christ is love and compassion. Without love, it’s hard to see what is good in the world. The world is such a scary and messed up place, living your life without love is extremely hard. The Bible tells us in Luke 6:31 “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” As broad of a bible verse as this is, it tells us that love others as you want to be loved.
Marriage is a union for a man and a woman. And it involves the procreation of children. This is the most tremendous reason why people are so resistant to same-sex marriage. Because of their beliefs they say that the Bible tells them that lesbian and gay parenting and marriage is unnatural and sinful. Many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people believe in God, yet they are rejected by churches and even family, having to feel a betrayal that they cannot be who they want to be because of the others that think it is an abomination.
Christians see Children as a blessing from God and therefore most Churches believe that some types of fertility treatments ... ... middle of paper ... ... have no other choice and as Christians they need to stick up for the defenceless. Another reason why Roman Catholics give their opinion on euthanasia as it might become legal which is a worry as they strongly oppose euthanasia. I believe that everyone has the right to express their view and Christians should have that same right but that does not mean they have the right to make others accept that view. I also think that if Christians want their views heard then they should listen to the opposing peoples’ views.

People can no longer speak freely about the God we serve or gods. We look at “Is Religious Freedom At The Tipping Point?” and see that in this article by Matthew Franck shows points that Religious Freedom has come under pressure. “We can not give the state power over the conscience of men and women, because we do not ourselves have any right to come between God and our fellow citizens.” Says Matthew Franck himself. However the supreme court has found many ways to change the documents and rules so everyone is happy even if that means pushing the truth every now and then. The Government cares about the shared moral happiness of the people more than the religious morals of Christians.
However, homosexuality is not natural in life and people need to become morally educated that way homosexuality can hence forth seize to exist in our world today. Overall, the citizens that live in Georgia have a decent prospective is what is right and wrong in our society, and by keeping a ban on gay marriage in the state we can ensure that we will preserve our community and natur... ... middle of paper ... ...s we are primarily a Christian believing state. Also having gender confused children because their parents do not understand their own roles in society does not have a positive impact for our citizens here in Georgia. Overall Georgia needs to ban gay marriage because if it is passed, we the people and citizens of Georgia will pay the severe consequences of many generations and its affects will be everlasting. Either way it is a disturbing concept in our country that we have to deal with and hopefully our local government will have the gumption to make the right decision not only for us students, but for the many generations of Georgian’s that are to be in this country.
Same sex marriage is considered an abomination. Although, the first amendment clearly states that everyone has the freedom of speech and religion. This makes most citizens ask, is America really the land of freedom? Readers will learn about the pros, cons, and predictions of same sex marriage in this paper. LBGT couples raising children is mostly not considered acceptable by the public because of the misunderstanding that they are not prepared to bring up children in with proper social values.
Interfaith, interracial, and same-sex couples have discovered the hard way that the same “natural” rights are not granted to all citizens. Many of these battles have been fought and won, but the struggle of same-sex couples still continues to be a hotbed of discontent throughout the United States. The United States is, fundamentally, a place where its citizens may practice their own religion without facing discrimination. The first settlers who immigrated to these lands were a small group of Puritans evading religious prosecution in Europe, hoping for asylum in the New World. Because of its roots as a sanctuary, freedom of religion has always been a core value for the United States, drawing a wide variety of religious groups to plant roots in this country.
For example, one of the demands was that “…the rich and mighty should not eat up the poor, nor the poor and despised rise up against their superiors and shake off their yoke” (Winthrop 91) Winthrop is saying that everyone should be seen as equal but not try to disturb the peace of the different social classes. Religion has affected the way of living for people in the early years. Winthrop believed that if one were to not follow these rules then they would go to hell and suffer. Religion was a particularly serious concept for these people because it was so heavily enforced. The fact that Winthrop wrote an entire sermon about the way a person should think and live based on religious factors can prove that religion has definitely influenced their mindsets and
