I do not think it is right to ruin the holy sacrament of marriage. Although I do not promote gay marriage or civil unions, I do believe a domestic partnership is the union that is most fitting and would make the gay society more productive. There are only few states in the United States that allow gay marriage which include Vermont, Iowa, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Massachusetts legislators decided there was no good state constitutional reason that should prevent gay marriage. Although gay marriage is legal now, Massachusetts may change the constitution’s laws or wording at anytime to prohibit gay marriage.
As of today, the following states have legalized gay marriage: Massachusetts (May 17, 2004), Connecticut (Nov. 12, 2008), Iowa (Apr. 24. 2009), Vermont (Sep. 1, 2009), New Hampshire (Jan. 1, 20... ... middle of paper ... ...he united citizens the government and citizens should relative that banning gay marriage is not giving everyone the equal rights they deserve. A person deserves to be who they are, this is what this court was founded on, equal rights for all. Even though, anti-gay do not practice and approve it really has nothing to do with them.
People opposing gay marriage say, “We must protect traditional marriage and the traditional family.” Matthew McTighe of the Mainers United for Marriage debates responds by saying, “Prote... ... middle of paper ... ...g and legalizing gay marriage. By not accepting gay marriage is discriminating gay people, they should have the same rights as everyone else does. What people don’t understand is it's not a choice to be gay. You don't chose who you love, you just do. You are born gay; you can’t choose to be gay.
Same-sex couple want to have the same martial rights and families as heterosexual couples. Some homosexual couples are passing away and their partners are losing their rights to claim their partner’s assets. The current approach for same-sex couple marriage needs to be changed because individuals are letting their religious beliefs pass laws that restrict homosexual couples from becoming married and have the same rights as married heterosexual couples. The reasoning given from individuals behind this is that marriage should be one man and one woman for the children’s sake. All the States need to allow for all citizens to have equal rights with the United States Constitution and without defending conservatives or religious associations.
In 2015 after the United States Supreme Court and the President of the United States agree that same-sex marriage should be legal and some people still have an issue with this. The clear answer is people are afraid of what is different. Each time, something is altered people get uncomfortable and express negative feelings towards it. If those who truly trust in their faith, religion, spirituality, mankind, or simply kindness, they would realize that love should not be stopped, prevented, or shun upon. Since, love is good enough for heterosexuals then there is no moral or
Marriage is something that will assure equality and rights – all people have according to our Constitution. The constitution specifically says that the government cannot make laws based on religious factors, and the fact that gay couples cannot marry even though they love and have needs the same way straight couples do is hypocritical of that First Amendment right. Church and state should be completely separate. Church laws and morals are unrealistic in today’s society. It is 2011, not the 1940’s.
Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals. For example, some people think that letting homosexual become an official union redefines the idea of marriage all together. (Rauch) Rauch states, “ I think the best definition of marriage is the one that most married people sign up for in their vows; “To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, until death do us part.” Extending the boundaries to include gay couples does not weaken that definition-it reinforces it.” The gay community embodies the idea of loving no matter who they are we should not pass judgment on them because they are not the pretty picture of a happy ma and women behind their white picket fence with children. Most Americans often believe that same sex marriages will diminish the value of the marriage itself. Which is a false conclusion based on a bias premise.
If heterosexual couples get every right (i.e. child, marriage, life, property, etc.) then same-sex couples should get those rights too, changing their sexual preference should not change their rights. The courts in the United States are starting to allow same-sex couples more rights. In court cases like Virginia, their law that bans same-sex marriage and all of the rights under that, has been overturned, saying that it was unconstitutional (Lindenberger).
Allowing gay marriage would serve to honor the Constitution. The future of this debate will decision any different from what it is today; the Constitution will remain a guideline that inherently insists on equal treatment for all human being especially in democratic society. My intentions in writing this argumentative essay were to dictate that it is that nation 's responsibility to acknowledge all unions, instead discriminating couples on their sex. Homosexuals, who are in love, have the fundamental right to commit to each other and have it legally recognized by the United States government. Remember "love doesn 't have eyes; it doesn 't go by race or gender.
If all people are created equal then marriage should be for the people. We call America a free place but we don't all have the same rights as other American people. If civil union is equal to marriage why don't straight people have a civil union? Because it's not real its fabricated! We want our marriages to be treated the same way as any other marriage: No more, no less.
