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.
Several other states are also debating whether or not to allow these couples to marry. Unfortunately, the dispute has left the United States' homosexual community in an awkward position. There are some people who think that gay people have no rights and should never be allowed to marry, and others believe that gay people should enjoy the same rights and privileges as heterosexuals. I think that the United States should allow same-sex couples to marry just like heterosexual couples. There are many opponents of gay people as it is, and they all have their reasons to dislike the idea of permitting them get married.
On the other hand, when it comes to two people in the same gender, government tends to reject this relationship. As a result, homosexual couples’ rights and protections, which are supposed to be provided by federal law, are as well taken away from them. Moreover, some religions also go against same-sex marriage since they think it is “unnatural.” Being repeatedly mistreated lead increasing in health defects among homosexual individuals. Some people might argue same-sex marriage is protected by Civil Union. However, they forget to realize that Civil Union does not provide as much rights and protections as marriage do.
Religion also leads the way as a strong argument towards gay marriage with many people believing that it’s against their religion. Opponents to gay marriage with strong religious beliefs believe that gay marriage is “sinful” with marriage also being a religious intuition for only man and woman. Despite this, to legally marry someone there is no requirement for a religious ceremony to be held; this proves that marriage i... ... middle of paper ... ...myself who has friends and family who are gay or lesbian I find it immensely aggravating that they are seen by some people around the world as wrong to experience the opportunities the rest of us are giving in life such as being married and eventually having children. Religion is a major factor towards opponents being against gay marriage however so many other life choices people make in life happens against peoples religious views so why is gay marriage seemed so unacceptable. There are also many other arguments people make towards gay marriage despite this there is very little evidence to prove what these opponents are saying making most of it very unjust able and at points homophobic.
It is too widespread in our country and around the world. Even though I am against homosexuality and same-sex marriage I will still love that person even if I do not support their lifestyle. I do not expect people to agree with what I say, but I believe that this is the wrong path and something can be done to turn everything around. I think homosexuality is a mental issue and that if the person got the right help they could be ‘cured’ of this. But my belief is that all of this is a big mess that is far from being resolved.
Another point why this topic is very controversial is when gay people marry each other. Many people believe and many religions believe it is very wrong to marry the same sex person. For example in the Roman Catholic followings. The church is totally against gay and lesbian relationships, because it if you do follow the gay and lesbian side its considered a big sin because in the teachings of GOD and Jesus you have to be with the opposite sex so you can make life. The 2 perspectives that are drawn on this topic is that the 1st perspective is that you see the topic as very reasonable.
In relation to homosexuals, contradiction constantly arises that gay marriage should not be legalised. However, homosexuals do not necessarily want to get marriage but may just want the justification of having equal rights. Thus, in the case if homosexuals do want to marry at some stage of their relationship, according to Nagle, “people say that banning same sex marriage is not only unfair, but it is also discriminatory” (2010, p.31). In society, denying individuals rights due to their gender, race or sexual orientation is consequently classified as discrimination. Alternatively, to go against gay marriage and not allowing either two females or to males getting married to one another can become a form of illegal discrimination towards society.
But there are some people who fight the idea that it should be legal. If marriage is defined as the union between two people, why is it considered morally wrong for two people of the same sex to get married? That’s when the question is proposed, what makes gay marriage different from heterosexual marriages? Why can’t they have the rights to love, honor and commit like heterosexual couples? Some may argue in the bible it states it is wrong to be involved in a gay marriage.
Many religions, like Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, deny homosexuality, and since marriage is a religious ceremony, many believe that it would be wrong to legalize homosexual marriage because it goes against its principles(Jones). Also, people argue that marriage is mainly for reproduction, and the reasons for marriage are not fulfilled within a gay marriage. Ryan Bilodeau explained his views as to why gay marriage should remain illegal in his article “Gay marriage is unnatural”. According to Bilodeau, gay marriage is unnatural, therefore it can not function properly, and that marriage is monogamous, yet many homosexuals have outside lovers. He explained how “both the media and the public school systems have become promoters for a gay subculture.
Religions see homosexuals as a sin. They aren’t accepted in many of the religions and aren’t allowed to marry in various states. Even though they aren’t accepted in our society, the media and celebrities are changing our views and the acceptance they receive. Take in mind we all want the right to marry the person who we love. The gay community doesn’t have the benefit of marrying their couple in many states or have the acceptance in their church.
