For the reason being passages of the Bible declaring homosexulity a sin and punishment for homosexual acts. According to the bible's old testament “ If there is man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act, they shall surely be put to death. Their blood is upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13) Of course the cycle of anti homosexual passages are repeated throughout the Bible's texts. But our government is not run by religious doctrine so surely no text written in the Bible should be or ever be taken seriously by our government. Joe messerli explains this idea well by saying that just because religions say something about a topic, for example saying the lords name in vein, does not mean that we have to go around punishing the people who curse a-little.
Anti-gay groups believe that homosexuals are the root of all evil and unholy. Ide... ... middle of paper ... ...t and understanding they would want in return. People would be the back bone and emotional support for one another. In a precious world such as that, homophobia would not exist because of the kindness and respect of its members towards one another would mean that differences within the community would be valued and celebrated. Homophobic societies deny these differences and are strongly prohibited.
Their major point to declaring gay marriage unconstitutional is that a marriage is only between a man and a woman. The conservatives believe gay marriage will change the foundation of society and that people would not be able to adapt to the new norms. If gay marriage is legalized it brings to the next dilemma of adoption of children. Republicans believe that if married gay couples adopt children it would led to children seeing gay marriage as normal and would change society as we know it. The church too is strictly against gay marriage.
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.
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.
People’s different values and morals play a role in defining what they believe. Many people find homosexuality to be not natural, and it goes against many people’s views. However, there is also a lot of people who argue in favor of homosexuality and find nothing about it unnatural. For those people who do think it is not natural they normally use the argument that this kind of sex can not reproduce, therefore it is not right because the point of sex is to reproduce. Many times the Bible will also be used to refer to verses that condemn acts of homosexual sex.
Only homosexuals demand that society rescind the age old recognition that sexual license, be it adultery or sodomy, is not only injurious to the participants but an assault on the common good. This is self-deception turned into a group effort. Individual acts of unnatural sex are one thing, and bad enough, but the homosexual ideology threatens the very basis of human society.
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.
Banning gay marriage across the United States is directly against the constitution and violates the unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The scumbags in the government however, make almost impossible to pass these laws for homosexual individuals. A man with reason like Aristotle for example, believes that the main duty of humans is to the use the ability of reason and consciousness in the pursuit of the ultimate life good or happiness. Happiness is what we strive for, even homosexual couples. This whole topic can be related to one question I find particularly interesting and correlates to this exact discussion.
Well the people who have said that are judging the people who support same-sex marriage are also sinning. Religious churches oppose same-sex marriage. Not the sacred books or whatever. No where in the bible does it say a man cannot marry a man and a woman cannot marry a woman. It does say that the sexual relationship is a sin but what a couple does behind doors in none of anyone’s business.
