Same sex marriage is very common these days, and has become legal in every state of the United States. The United States was founded as a Christian nation, however, same sex marriage has become legal. Yet,homosexuality is all around us, in the television shows we watch, the celebrities we follow, even the cartoon characters we like, and has become very difficult to avoid.
God never created man to be with another man. God created a woman, Eve, out of Adam. God’s will is for every man to have a woman. God has created man out of his own image, and his image is not a homosexual man. According to the Bible, you are this image until you sin, and homosexuality is considered a sin, and therefore homosexuality is wrong because God did not create man for man, but for woman and the purpose of procreation. Any other type of relation is wrong in the eye of God.
There are roughly 313,900,000 people living in the United States and within those people roughly 9,000,000 people categorize as either lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (gates). This statistic was calculated throughout many surveys issued in 2010 throughout all states in the United States. These statistics were presented in an article written by Gary J. Gates in April of 2011. Now that it is currently almost the year 2014 the number of homosexuals have only risen in the past few years due to the legalization of same sex marriage throughout some states. Same sex marriage is becoming a well-known controversy in the United States due to complete opposite opinions. Society often examines the changes throughout the years in terms of consequences rather than in benefits. The legalization of same sex marriage is often portrayed as consequential to society however when examined more closely there would be more benefits to society if this controversy was viewed in terms of positive change. Benefits society could achieve from legalization of same sex marriage are providing new economic and business opportunities, and encouraging equal opportunity and a non-discriminatory society.
The most prominent argument against homosexuality by far is that it is not God’s wishing or God condemns homosexuals. From the scriptures we can see why people may take this approach. "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable" (Leviticus 18:22) and "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads" (Leviticus 20:13) are just two common examples of The Holy Book denouncing homosexual behaviour. From this we can clearly see that historic opinion disapproves of gay and lesbians.
Times have changed we are living in a world more liberal , where for society is more commom see same sex couples, where same sex marriage are allowed , where laws protect people with different sexual orientation. Even in this times people with different sexual orientation are afraid to show their identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender for fear of suffering some kind of abuse by society.
As stated in the verse Leviticus 20:13 “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.” (bible) Being gay is an abomination therefore cannot be determined at birth. As said before god created us for specific purposes and he wouldn't have created us to be gay if it was a sin. 1 Cornintians 7:2 also states, “But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband” (bible) This meaning that it was intended for a man to be with a woman rather than the same sex together. It’s not possible have been assigned as gay at birth if it was already intended by our creator for us to be with the opposite sex. and finally as 1 timothy 1:10 states, “The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine” (Bible). Just like all other scripture on this topic it is said that homosexuality is immoral and unjust. There is no way for a person, man or women, to be born
Why is gay marriage such a big deal? Why are there so many people against it? Most of the time it is easy to presume where to draw the line when interfering with someone else’s rights. Simply, do not do it. Everyone has the right to get a driver’s license or has the freedom of speech, but why on earth do some people have the right to wed and think that he or she has the right to tell somebody else that he or she does not have that same right? Gay marriage is not traditional, gay relationships are immoral, and marriage is for procreation. Gay marriage is a perfectly acceptable decision that any citizen should be able to make for themselves.
I agree with you that not allowing homosexual people to marry robs them of their rights and it does make them second-class citizens. They should be allowed the same rights as anyone else because love is love. Society should not have the right to deny them of marriage because their preference does not fit “societal norms”. This is unfair to these people and by far not right.
For many people in the United States gay marriage is a sin to their religion and will not be tolerated. For others It is a right to be able to marry whoever you love and is considered discriminatory if you do not accept it. To start off, legal gay marriage started in The Netherlands on April 1, 2001 with a Female and three males two of the males were legally getting married while the other two (one female and one male) were previously married legally.Second, Legal gay marriage in the United States first happened on May 17, 2004. But this doesn't mean gay marriage was legal all over the United states. Oral discussion over this topic happened on April 28, 2015. On June 26,2015 it was finalized that gay marriage is a right protected. Though, there
As soon as someone is born, they have an opinion. While at a young age it might just be a nod or shake of the head on whether or not you like the food your mother is feeding, it is still an opinion. As we get older, our opinions start to develop and change. A kid might have liked the carrots that their mom was feeding them, and as they get older, the start to not like carrots. One reason they might have liked carrots in the first place was only because it was the only food that their mother would sit down and feed it to the child. Just like that child, many things have influenced the views I have on topics since the moment I was born.Although gay marriage was not one of the very first topics I formed an opinion on, I am in support of gay marriage and I know that my friends, the media, and my family influenced me to form that opinion.
Francis DeBernardo, head of a LGBT Catholics organization, has said that "many gay and lesbian couples are leading lives of heroic devotion to each other, their children, and their communities. I hope and pray that you will reflect not only on the harm that this decree will cause but also the good that can occur if you withdraw it." (Crary). People who like the same sex shouldn't be categorized in society as people to be frowned upon when they lead a good example, but others disagree. This is why the discussion of same-sex couples is so controversial. Gay marriage is a very important issue in modern society in the U.S because it is more accepted than what it used to be by everyday people and household life is healthier than in opposite sex marriages; unfortunately, it is still frowned upon by many and some business owners still decline service due to discrimination.
Gay and lesbian criticism have been such a controversy in the united states because it is weird to people to see the same sex gender getting married. People
Gay marriage is a very talked about topic in are country that shouldn’t be ignored. I believe men and women should be able to love freely and not be shamed by it. Marriage is a great factor in the United States. To some people it’s what we live for; is to get married and start a family. To not give everyone the same opportunity to have a happy marriage and family is unlike us. This problem is bringing a lot of hate, the same hate that was used in racial discrimination so why not give gays equal rights like everyone else. Andrew Sullivan wrote a article that shares his experiences of coming out and being accepted. When puberty hit he started to realize he wasn’t the same. He knew that his marriage is not going to be the same as his
