When gay marriage rights were a “hot topic”, the people on the opposing side believed that it challenged the original concept of what marriage was ‘supposed’ to be. "I think it's a matter of both biology and cultural values, and our western democratic societies' cultural values are most definitely [in favour of] one man and one woman, and polygamy threatens that just as same sex marriage threatened that. Polygamy threatens it on the monogamous level, same sex marriage threatened it on the biological level” (Hebbert). Due to the level of known abuse surrounding the Polygamist communities, most people think believe that if Polygamy was legalized that the government would be supporting this abuse and letting it happen. Not only are children in trouble in polygamous relationships, women can be too.
This paper is a critique of the book “The Gift of Sex” written by Clifford & Joyce Penner. In today’s culture, the physical and spiritual aspect of sex is neglected. According to the authors sex is an emotional and spiritual act, involving the body, soul, and spirit, the total person. The sexual relationship between a husband and wife is connected to the strong intimate relationship of man and God. Knowing this will bring fulfillment and freedom in marriage and in God.
A very popular topic that divides the nation greatly is abortion, many think its wrong and cruel, while others believe its correct in certain situations. You can see the effects of this with the government trying to defund Planned Parenthood, Congress votes to defund and the president overrides it and nothing gets achieved. Media might want to portray this as “Men being horrible humans and they have no right to choose what a women can do with their bodies” and attack men, but there are also women against Planned Parenthood, and thats how it goes with controversial topics, media try to shape to what benefits them and their views. Or, they will try to portray it a specific way that only shows one side saying horrific things and not the other . This is called Political Socialization which is the process by which people form their ideas about politics and acquire their ideas about the government.
Many religions, including Judaism and Islam, forbid homosexual acts and behaviour. This is worrying for society as one may not be accepted by one’s own religion, as well as being rejected by society. Furthermore, homosexuality is constantly slated over social media, providing a negative aura surrounding the subject. All these factors influence the fear and shame of an individual. On the other hand, there are several countries that are becoming more open to homosexuality and legalising gay marriage.
Marriage has been a part of life since before the medieval times. For two individuals who adore each other and arrangement on spending whatever remains of their lives together, the usual impulse is to make it legitimate and get hitched. This being said same-sex marriage had been broadly talked about and bantered on if it ought to be sanctioned or not. It is segregating not to permit two individuals who need to get hitched because they are a gay person. Authorizing same-sex marriage would perceive the American long for equal rights for all.
Can people even answer this or will they just push it over their shoulder? This is relevant because gay rights are not civil rights in any form of fashion; the government just gave in because they did not want riots, even though they happened as any way. Its making our human race think these kind of rights are acceptable, but yet make us think that what I believe is wrong. Its idiotic and vulgar to think that two of the same sex should be able to share a bed, bathroom, kids, a life together, and be able to exchange vows in a wedding. Its just not right to say that, but what does anyone
Why do people have a problem with gay marriage? It is not all people who have a problem with gay marriage, but there are those who believe that gay marriage is an abomination and goes against God. Others however, believe that people are just people, and it does not matter if you are gay or not. Charles Colson believes that gay marriage is the end of the tradition of marriage; especially if gay couples are able to adopt children. Katha Pollitt however, believes that it does not matter if a couple is gay, straight, or elderly; as long as they are happy together and love one another.
Homosexuality was once considered sacred in ancient Rome, albeit being treated poorly since the middle ages. Like this, homosexuality has been suppressed for a long time and thenceforth, the public opinion towards it has been on a downward road until recent years when LGBT groups started stepping up front and coming out along with the increasing controversy towards their rights. The subject of homosexuality has always been polemical. Every once in a while a news article would come up saying something like "Manny Pacquiao provokes storm by calling gay people ‘worse than animals’" or "Sam Smith Talks Coming Out As Gay". Issues like these may well be controversial, being based on an individual 's creed and principles.
Therefore, this limitation ensures that anyone who is getting married is legally able to do so and not coerced into it. Furthermore, “in case of disparity of cult an express dispensation from this impediment is required for the validity of the marriage”. A disparity of cult is a marriage between a Catholic and non-baptized person. In these cases marriage is valid under Christianity when there is a special dispensation given by the Church. This rule applies to both males and
People on this side of the argument believe that the idea that people are not born gay is as outdated as other recently disparaged beliefs, such as being left-handed. “ So, as willfully ignorant Americans blather on about the unnatural choice of being left-handed - I mean homosexual…” (Eichenwald). They argue that if homosexuality were a choice, then animals without higher thought would not have the rate of homosexual tendencies that they do, as “hundreds of species engage in homosexual behavior...for example, about 8 percent of rams exhibit sexual preference for males…” (Eichenwald). There are also several studies that have looked into the possibility of people being born gay and many of them have conclusive evidence that people are, in fact born with tendencies toward a certain sexual orientation. “Sex hormones in prenatal life play a role.
The backlash on the ruling is much warranted. I say this because if we took a national poll, the ruling would be that gay marriage would not be allowed. We live in a democratic society where the people "should" rule but as always, the government has the final say. Although I do agree with the backlash and understand why it is happening I still hold firm to my belief that they should still be allowed to marry. I believe this because if my neighbors who are both males were to marry each other, why or how does that influence or affect my life.
Marriage is a human right for all people. People in the past and present have been denied this right simply because their skin color or their sexual orientation. Throughout history the definition of marriage has changed. For example, marriage used to be between couples of the same race, they could not be an interracial couple because if they were they could not marry. Marriage was also considered a union between a man and a woman.
Meanwhile the government are not protecting the LGBT community because it’s considered “wrong” this causes violence towards homosexual. For example, the cons about Gay Rights is that “Married LGBT couples can access the same assistance as heterosexual couples and are afforded the same amount of protection under the law”(Duigon 4). The government does not show equalness towards the LGBT community as they do to the “straight” people. It’s disappointing that protection is reduced because he or she is attracted to their same gender or more, but how government ignores that fact that they are struggling as well at the other and yet nothing has changed for them. To go into more detail, Mississippi has created a law to where doctors can refuse to provide medical care to he or she that are homosexual, as well as therapist do not have to counsel them either.
The main reason for Democrats defending the legalization of gay marriage is because they don’t bring in a religious aspect or bias. Religion has been the backbone of numerous anti-gay marriage views as many hate, conservative, and homophobic groups have used this excuse to attempt to deny gay people the right to marry the person they love. However, Democrats follow the separation of church and state; therefore, they have chosen to defend gay people and their right to get married as there is practically no justifiable or medical reason that proves that being gay is not right or gay people cannot raise children as properly. Democrats also understand that there are certain rights and benefits that gay people were denied before the legalization of gay marriage. The rights and benefits include tax breaks, custody of both parents in adopting, and being able to visit one’s spouse while one is in the hospital.
I am against the idea od gay marriage. When going against gay rights, most people bring up topics on thing like children, civil rights, and the major topic, Religion. I do agree that gay marriage does have an affect on a child, it denies them either a father or a mother, and when it comes to religion, I guess it questions how much faith you have in your religion. But the thing with society is that they have to get their point straight. We live in today’s society, which looks down on abortion, but then at the same time, treat teenage parents as failures.
