Same sex couples look at being denied the right to legally marry each other as their freedom of speech being taken away, but in actuality they are only expressing their love. Legalizing gay marriage will not damage society. If same sex marriage were legal everywhere in the United States, society will still function normally and no family values will be lost. If gay marriage is legal in seventeen, why must the other thirty three states continue to ban same sex marriage? How can we all be equal if we are being denied certain rights because of who we love?
Gay marriage should be legal worldwide. Gay marriage or same-sex marriage is when a man and man or women and a woman get married. Same-sex marriage impacts society in different types of ways, some people are affected by it because they think it is against the bible, others seem to have no impact or problem with same-sex marriage. However for the gay community it affects them, because in some states they are not allowed to marry the one they are in love with it. Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage.
It also violates a natural law. After all you don’t have to be against or with gay marriage. That is your opinion on what you like and don’t like about gay marriage. It’s like if you don’t like gay marriage it’s like denying heterosexual. In the long run some people will never like gay marriage at all and other people cannot change to not liking gay marriage.
In the 21st century some religions and laws are still discriminating against them. Even though, the religions say to treat all equally, even if they sin. With the new laws being passed by the government, they are working to stop discrimination and give everyone equal rights and privileges of marriage. But, they still face problems from the people who believe one man and one woman should only be married. There will never be 100% of the people who agree with gay marriage.
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.
Some may argue in the bible it states it is wrong to be involved in a gay marriage. If two people love each other why can they not get married? There are so many arguments that can be brought up to justify marriage and for couples to receive benefits like any other couple. In this society understand why some people like myself I feel like people have the right to be with who they want to be with and just because you don’t believe in it doesn’t make it bad. A gay person is no diffe... ... middle of paper ... ...y should someone be denied the right to get married just because they are gay?
Pew Research, 12 May 2016. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/05/12/support-steady-for-same-sex-marriage-and-acceptance-of-homosexuality/. However, straight marriage is not the right thing to do. Just because a person is happy, does not mean it is morally correct. The article “Gay Marriage” states that Americans still oppose to gay marriage because it violates their religious beliefs (2). Yes, everyone in the world needs to feel happy and accepted, but sometimes it is unnecessary acts that get people where they are in the world.
People that are against same-sex marriage and parenting fail to provide actual hard examples that lesbian and gays are harmful and sinful to outweigh the benefits of what same-sex marriage and parenting can bring. Homosexuality is viewed as “wrong” but one cannot just say that based on biblical verse that something is wrong or right. They say that in biblical proof texts that God said that marriage involves a man and a woman, to “become one flesh” and to have children, so they interpret that homosexuality is ruled out and that by God, acts of homosexuality is an abomination and marriage is
When it comes to it we shouldn't judge each other, just let a higher power decide. Many people's religion will not allow any fondness to gay marriage but perhaps we can come to an agreement. Most Americans don't believe that it is right for same sex marriage and would probably feel more comfortable if gays could have a different ceremony and marriage license. Every man is responsible for himself, so don't worry about if gays are condemned to hell, let god be the judge. But there should not be a spiritual marriage and a sacred marriage like the one between a man and a woman.
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.
