Equal Rights for All What is marriage? Recently, people argue with respect to the definition of marriage. The definition of the word marriage is a topic that often comes up when discussing same-sex marriages. To get married is a very important event for almost everyone. Many people believe that getting married to the one whom he or she loves is natural.
A major problem in our government right now is the influence that religion has over government laws in the states and the country. Government and religion must always be separate due to the fact that there are multiple religions in the United States and that religious influence favors one over the other and influences laws that can be placed over the people. A major issue of religion and state is same-sex marriage which due to religious rules mainly form Christianity, forbids the act and the influence Christianity has on the States is evident to why it is illegal in more than 50% of the states in America. Another issue is the dealing with Abortion though government rules that this is legal religions tell the people that this is wrong and illegal which are another example of religion attempting to influence government decisions. The religious influence in Government can be eliminated by disallowing the teachings of a religion to directly affect a religious preference or law, to differentiate between religious marriage and state recognized marriage, and to make sure that religious influence does not affect the choosing of government candidates.

This is only one of the main issues with same sex marriage laws and there are plenty of other reasons I will be explaining based on their religion, morals and beliefs. The first altercation I want to talk about is how religion causes lots of controversy over same sex marriage. Most people’s religion has problems against same sex marriage. First they believe in their religion by Gods will that it is immoral to have a marriage of the same sex and saying that it wasn’t what he intended to create. Second in another person’s religion they believe in heterosexual (opposite sex) marriage stating that you cannot get married unless it’s of the opposite gender.
Recently, people have been arguing with respect to the definition of marriage. To get married is a very important event for almost everyone. Particularly for women, marriage and giving a birth could be the two major events of their lives. Andrew Sullivan and William Bennett are authors who are arguing about homosexual marriage. Sullivan believes in same-sex marriage because he thinks everyone has a right to marry.
