Is homosexuality morally and biblically right? This a very hard question to answer with so many opinions. The question can be looked at with religions and general rights of an individuals. The society doesn’t openly accept homosexuals like they do of the heterosexual couples in America. My question to you is what makes it wrong and who are we to judge another human being. The analysis that I am going over is from a video of a man who ask questions and gives logical reasoning to common questions thrown at the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. I feel that John Corvino provided a valuable and useful case on the morality of the community. Corvino is the chairman of the department of philosophy at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He is the author of What’s Wrong with Homosexuality and has spoken at hundreds of campuses on issues of homosexuality, ethics, and marriage. He is the co-author with Maggie Gallagher of Debating Same-Sex Marriage. Corvino is the recipient of numerous awards, including a 2012 Distinguished Professor of the Year Award from the Presidents’ Council of the State Universities of Michigan. Lastly he is an openly gay man and the rhetor of the video. The occasion of this video was around the date of July 9, 2013. USA Today had a headline that stated “Gay-Marriage fight moves from Supreme court to States” on that same date. This news article was stating that the legal battle was going to lower courts because of a recent victory. I believe the audience in this video are people who think that homosexuality is immoral and biblically wrong specifically the justice system in this case.

Corvino disputed the fact of the case study by saying homosexuality does not cause aids but the virus itself cause aids. The fact of the matter is that the virus can be passed down by homosexuals, heterosexuals, and a couples of other factors. In my conclusion Corvino has changed my outlook on how I felt about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and the transgender community. He used all the rhetorical concepts to persuade any viewer on his stand point of the homosexual community. He expressed reasonable answers that made logical sense and were so simple. I believe he really wants the average person to understand that if two consenting adults love each other regardless of gender that it shouldn’t be immoral. Lastly I believe that he wants us to judge people not on who they love but wither they love.
