“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.” (Matthew 7:1-5)

Everyday Christians quote the bible to justify their feelings against same-sex marriage. Everyday countries and different legislations find a way to suppress the rights of homosexual people. Why is it so condemned in society? How does it affect other people if someone has a different sexual orientation? In the 19th century, there were men’s clubs where men would share their feelings as opposed to with their wife. Their wives were only there for domestic and sexual needs. Was that not considered homosexual? Why was that not frowned upon? Homosexual people are the new African Americans, the new Jews, and the new minority that is being suppressed even though they are human and deserve the same rights as everyone else, the right to same sex marriage. Although opponents view same sex marriage as an attack on traditional marriage and morals, same sex marriage should be legalized because faith and morality should not play a role in politics, it is discrimination towards a group of people with different beliefs, and it is a human and constitutional right.

Homosexual couples are equally capable of providing children with patience, love, and respect. Many heterosexual couples fight and have divorces but no one questions what effect that has on children, so why homosexual couples?
Same-sex marriage is a new take on marriage, just as religion, society, and culture all evolve, so do the ideas of marriage. Not everything can stay “traditional” forever. Same-sex may be an attack on traditional marriage, and the normalcy of life but it should be accepted and legalized because faith and morality should not play a role in politics, it is discrimination towards a group of people with different beliefs, and it is a human and constitutional right.
