“We believe in equality for everyone, everywhere—no matter who they are or who they love.” Ben and Jerry’s are proud supporters of social justice, LGBT rights, and marriage equality. They have supported same-sex marriage by being one of the first major employers in Vermont to offer health insurance to same-sex couples. They did not think it was something that would change the world, but did it because they thought it was fair. This thoughtful gesture was given to the same-sex couples in 1989. In 1996, Ben and Jerry’s offered grants to the parents, friends, and families of lesbians and gays.
Thus, BSA can set up meetings with its funders such as UMC church, and work on a decision whether to allow LGBT people or even girls to participate in BSA. It would benefit BSA to both support its constituents and avoid taking national stance while preserving the support from its funders. According to Poll: Most Americans Support Lifting Ban on Gay Boy Scouts, “In splitting the decision, the group may be trying to modernize while continuing to respect a diversity of views on homosexuality”. Declaration as such proves BSA intent to stay neutral, which is a wise decision due to the current tensions about the issue. In addition, it would benefit LGBT to focus on persuading local organizations about their cause rather than wasting time on endless trails that could lose public’s attention afterwhile.
“Gay marriage-it’s not about two people being gay: it’s about two people who love each other and who have decided to commit to each other for the exact same reasons any other couple would get married,” said Luke Macfarlane.

The governor of New York said that more money came to the state after they allowed same-sex marriage. Although, allowing gay couples to wed could further weaken the institution of marriage, however; same-sex marriage should be allowed because history proves traditional marriage has changed, the U.S. Constitution protects our rights, and it would help boost the economy.

I would give them the 1st amendment because they can say anything they want without being killed or punished. Also they can have meetings about what they want to do like for example get rid of the “Great Leader”. They can do petitions like for example “equality for women” so they can have fair rights. It would be good for them to talk to the government and see what they can decide or negotiate. If they had freedom of religion they can praise to who every they want which is fair and they won’t be forced to believe in someone but Suki Kim quoted “Everything there is about the Great Leader.
This teaching is embodied in Romans 12:2 which states “Don 't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” With this verse and other Christian teachings in mind, questions of authenticity arise. If young Christians choose to participate in the hipster lifestyle, other Christians have wondered how authentic their faith is and whether the earthly hipster lifestyle can be reconciled with a traditional, pious one. Hipster Christians can also be considered increasingly political. As McCracken (2010) argues, this particular subculture is driving the church to consider issues of social justice, service and welfare to the forefront. In conclusion, Hipster Christians offer a challenge to Christian traditions while still incorporating religious and spiritual

How could it be otherwise?’.” This quote means that it is okay for a president to use religion in his politics and bring a faithful aspect to the table.

Americans are religious, even though there are many religions that are practiced throughout the country, we need a president who believes in a God to lead us. Many ask if the government needs religion and honestly yes we do. God has created this beautiful country for us to live on, and the government needs religion to help us
“Ever since the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) became a federal law in 1996, gay advocates have been trying to remove any restrictions from this law and pass same sex marriage as a whole.” (Examiner.com 2006-2015). These advocates wanted this law to pass not only within the state they reside in, but nationwide. During this time, same sex marriage was looked down upon. America is supposed to be the land of the free. How are we free if we can’t marry who we want?
Perry we see the issue regarding the major political issue of the legalization of same-sex marriages. While some individuals rebuke or chastise homosexuality, other individuals will embrace it as just another aspect of life a average norm to be. We must questions the reason for the early determination of same sex marriage constitutionality. When it comes down to it, our society is just making it illegal for people that live their lives differently from the majority of us. It is inequitable for our government to decide on whether or not homosexuals can be married.
Pick one, read the Syllabus (the majority opinion summary), and take a look at the other opinions, if there are (concurring, dissenting, etc.). HOLT v. HOBBS Verdict 9-0 in favor of Holt Explain why you believe this case is so important I believe that Holt v Hobbs is an important case because it values our first amendment rights for freedom of religion. A governmental agency preventing a man from practicing his religious beliefs is unconstitutional. It sets a standard that all prisoners should be treated with the same religious laws that are provided to citizens. I believe that the expression of one’s religion is important and that no governmental agency should interfere with our first amendment right to freedom of religion.
