A homosexual, even with religious faith, is something taboo inside the religious communities. For most of these people, they keep their sexuality hidden because of the of stigmatization, while some, denounce their faith in order to resolve any contradiction between their sexuality and religious faith.
If some members of the society think that LGBT people should be criminalize, then it would also be important to criminalize adultery—this is against the Ten Commandments in the same bible. There is need to tolerate the LGBT community; we should change laws if we expect to change attitudes against the community. There are homosexual men who never engage in a sex relationship with other men and the heterosexual men who will engage in it. Also, there are heterosexual couples who do so too. The society fails to discriminate against the heterosexual couples who take part in buggery.
Religion discrimination involves treating an individual adversely because of their religious beliefs. When it comes to religious beliefs, people tend to discriminate other people. Sadly, there are people going through harassment for not believing what others believe. It occurs to be illegal to harass a person who has a different opinion than another. Although, the law does not forbid teasing, or curt comments, harassment actually becomes illegal when it happens constantly to the point where it creates an unfriendly work environment.
Honestly, the message still applies, but with the recent legalization of gay marriage, I doubt that we have nowhere else to go but by moving forward and accepting that the gay community is for the most part accepted. We may get people who still dislike the community, but with the recent generations being brought up to understand what being gay means, there shouldn’t be any serious issues in the future. But take my opinion with a grain of salt, there will always be people who dislike gay people no matter how much you educate them. And that is because through ignorance and influences from either old generations or religion. I also with that people who are uneducated about what the gay community is remain similar to one of the characters being interviewed.
They interpret that the Old Testament shows God disapproving of homosexuality. The curiosity on why society, especially of large nations like the United States, Brazil, China, and India, does not fully accept homosexuality and their marriage. Perhaps, this is because of the laws that govern the country. For instance, Japan does not allow gay marriage, but not many people are offended by the idea. Likewise, many people live in nations where their beliefs and the law do not match; citizens may be against an existing law, or citizens may wish for an amendment.
Some people think that acceptance already .“As far as the gay issue, I don’t give a damn one way or the other as long as they don’t bother me…… Laramie is live and lets live.” While this might work for the heterosexual community the homosexual community could not disagree more. 'Live and let live ' is, at best, a load of crap. It basically boils down to: 'If I don 't tell you I 'm a fag, you won 't beat the crap out of me '. What kind of philosophy is that? In the Laramie project, there is the difference between acceptance and tolerance is attention.
It has existed since the beginning of human civilization. Therefore, the topic of whether or not lgbtqa+ people deserve equal rights has gone around spewing up controversy all over the nation. First off, LGBT is loosely represented as Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders. Many say yes, lgbtqa+ do deserve equal rights because they are human, and denying them for something that they cannot control is unreasonable. However, just as many are saying no because it goes against the teaching of their God/religion, and that the lgbtqa+ community already has enough rights.
Homosexuality can be defined as a sexual orientation and a sense of personal and social identity with or without alternative life style. For some western countries homosexual issues are the norms and are accepted in their lives but it is different with countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and others. The majority of them are from among those who are Muslims. Their views on homosexual issues are different in that they assume homosexual acts are totally wrong because they are strictly forbidden in Islam and are a great sin if it is done. Homosexuality means, the sexual orientation and fantasies, with or without overt sexual behavior with same sex partner.
Should a craftsmen be able to discriminate against a same sex couple if their faith condemns gay marriage? That is the topic of the debate. The case’s intricacy comes from the fact that ruling in favor of the baker could open the floodgates to many forms of discrimination against many different types of people if someone’s interpretation of the bible condemns that person’s race, sexual orientation, as well as many other characteristics that make humans unique. For that reason justices may change their opinion and vote for the gay couple, but another strong counter argument can be made there as well. The argument being that according to the First Amendment citizens of the United States are granted with freedom of religion and arguably when he denied the couple a wedding cake Jack Phillips was exercising his amendment protected religion.
There are also superficial criticisms like those who claim that behind all this there are only some people who think they sound more interesting defining themselves as queer rather than as lesbian or gay. Nevertheless, what cannot be ignored is that queer people seek a world of equal rights between different people: it advocates that everyone can be who they are, as it is. People cannot be stereotyped because of their sexual preference. Nobody has to their life according to the stupid rules society once invented to give sense to something seen for the first time, like a gay man in the 60s. The word "queer" that began as a label or something very offensive and often used for discriminatory or offensive purposes, became a word for members of the gay community without offensive purposes.
It’s discouraging to see people of the Islamic faith being threatened or being victims of violence because of their religious faith, fortunately; I do not have this problem. What is it about some people that they have such a pressing psychological need to feel superior to someone in society? There are men who need women to be inferior, Christians who need non-Christians to be inferior, religious believers who need non-believers and atheists to be inferior, citizens who need foreigners to be inferior, and heterosexuals who need gays to be inferior. Why can 't those who are different be equal in their differences? However, I do believe that Christians are losing privileges; we are losing the ways in which we had previously been treated better than everyone else.
The church’s unwillingness to involve themselves in the conversation and active efforts to cease AIDS’ increasing stake on lives, fails to live up to their roles as empathetic followers of Christ. However, much of this hesitance stems from the Bible’s direct claims that condemn homosexuality and those living in what the church deems a “sinful” life, whom God punishes with sickness, poverty, and ultimate suffering, as this only justifies this inactiveness. The church fails to save lives as much as it claims to save souls in an institution that historically prides itself in combatting oppression and restoring justice, especially from the African American church, although seeming to fail in restoring dignity. “If God’s relationship with humanity is persuasive, that characteristic should be the model for our own interpersonal relationships” because lives should not be lost from lack of intervention, resulting from the church’s condemnation of participating in intense and joyous activities, like sex and drug use, subjecting many of these followers to hypocrisy (Shelp and Sunderland 74). Sexually explicit education should have been enforced in a society where religious conservatism creates a barrier in combatting the spread of this disease, a disease like any other disease.
