Gay marriages are unacceptable in my opinion because it goes against God’s words. God’s word is the truth and no one can change it. Allowing gay marriage also puts churches at risk, because if pastors allow same sex marriage it makes them go against God’s word as well. Homosexuality is a sin and it is unacceptable to force gay marriage on people who do not believe in it. It is also an unnatural act because God created Adam and Eve, not Eve and Eve nor Adam and Steve.

Why shouldn’t someone marry who they want just because some has a personal or moral issue with it from their beliefs. To me that is not morally fair to judge someone, how can someone preach about morals and say god don’t judge but that what they are doing to others judging. Gay people need love too, they cannot help the fact that they fell in love with a person of the same sex as they are love is uncontrollable. From a Christian point of view you know that God has planned out your life before you even started your life.
Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable (New International Version Bible, Leviticus 18:22). Many religions believe that procreation is the most important to human existence and same-sex ... ... middle of paper ... ...gs are changing with the courts recognizing that gay couples should have the same rights to marry as the heterosexual couples. Throughout history gay marriage has been there, legal and illegal. Then the rise of Christianity began changing things and soon gay marriage became uncommon and a sin. In the 21st century some religions and laws are still discriminating against them.
This is a long-standing theme of most major Western religions. Under a proposed bill known as the Defense of Marriage act, marriage is defined as “a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife.” Furthermore, it defines a spouse as “ a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or wife” (What 1). Under these guidelines, it is quite obvious that gay couples would not be eligible for marriage. People against homosexual marriage also say that it is a person’s choice to be gay. Since the individual chooses to be a homosexual, they should not be given special privileges.
If you're trying to legalize something, you can't use the Bible as an excuse. But if you are, it also says "Judge not lest ye be judged." However they are still judging gays? Why is it fair to treat others wrong because of something they don't have any choice over? I never chose to be straight and honestly why would a gay person choose to have all that hate in their life?
Joe Messerli states, “the government cannot start making laws just because a religion says they should. What’s next, should we make taking the Lord’s name in vain a criminal activity because Christians consider it a breaking of a commandment.” Almost every religion in the world considers homosexuality unacceptable. It is offensive to most people and a put-down to religious freedom that people have to recognize a relationship they consider sinful. Laws stated in the Bible developed into the legal system in the United States. But, why should others care about gay marriage?
Many people say that same sex marriage should be banned, because The Bible states Marriage should be between a man and a woman, which will start an argument towards same sex marriage, but some people may not believe in The Bible, because of freedom of religion. In this case some believe in other things than the average person.Afterwards, same sex marriage benefit society, because it shows that everone should be happy, which can really be beneficial. Lastly, same sex marriage has a huge impact on society right now to protest against same sex marriage. On The Other Hand same sex marriage should be legalized because it is uncivilized and unmerited. Our civil rights and The Constitution give us many liberties.
According to Joe messerli in”should same sex marriage be legalized” (balancedpolitics.org) denying gay couples the right to marry is a violation of religious freedom. Civil and religious marriages are two separate institutions. The First Amendment in the bill of rights states that “ There shall be no law respecting an establishment of religion. Therefor denying homosexual citizens the right to get married is a violation of the United States Constitution.The reason to involve religion is because most of the negative feedback from gay marriage comes from religious groups. For the reason being passages of the Bible declaring homosexulity a sin and punishment for homosexual acts.
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. However, it is ironic that individuals that use contraceptives to prevent them from creating another life are not judged as cruelly by society. Even though homosexuals are not able to have children, they are still people and they deserve to be treated likewise. LGBT individuals are... ... middle of paper ... ...hance to feel like they belong in this world. Works Cited Augustin, Nia.
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?
