He was all for same-sex marriage, and thought they should be able to have the same rights as others when considering marriage. This quote moved my heart, and many others as well. The audience can feel him speaking from his heart and shows that he honestly thinks that it is a good idea to legalize same-sex marriage. Once this decision was passed, it officially made the United States the twenty-first country to legalize same-sex marriage. The president of the United States at the time, Barack Obama, also voiced his congratulation to the community of the LGBTQ.
The dictionary stated that equality is “ the state or quality of being equal; correspondence in quantity, degree, value, rank, or ability”. Some examples of equality would be Dr. Martin Luther King Jr gave his famous I have a dream speech on August 28,1963. Also there was a law passed to abolish slavery by Abraham Lincoln. In today’s time, the government pass the same sex marriage law to give equality to same sex marriage as they did to different sex marriage. In today’s society think about what if equality was not a law and consider what if there was no one to fight for equality in America.
This is my favorite Amendment because it allows us as citizens of the U.S. to have our own individual freedoms. The part that mentions freedom of religion is especially important because it separates church from state and allows each citizen the right to choose which religion they want to follow. Some places in the world do not allow this and punish those who rebel against the religion of the land. 3. In your own words explain why the inclusion of your selected Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is important to the citizens of the United States.
How different should people act in a society? Should people be the same in every way possible, or should there be some differences between people? These questions stem from the definitions of equality and sameness. Over the centuries the terms equality and sameness have become interchangeable despite having polar definitions. In today’s culture, people fight for equality but use the definition of sameness.
The Fourteenth Amendment calls for equal protection of all citizens, which in my opinion applies to adults, as well as children; children are also citizens of the United States of America, and deserve to be protected by the Constitution, just as any adult citizen would be. As for education not being mentioned in the Constitution, I believe those writing it did not see education being such an issue in the future. I’m sure there were school systems in place when the Constitution was written, and they assumed that system would work many decades into the future, unfortunately those systems did not work, but this is why the constitution can be amended. The very first version of the Constitution cannot be expected to cover every issue that may arise of 2015, because no one back then would have known these issues would
Nazi demonstrations are prohibited in India on the grounds of public order. The deliberate intentions of outraging the religious feelings can disturb the public order. There is a lot of difference between India 's Constitution and the United States of America 's Constitution. By looking as India 's Constitution it looks that India 's Constitution preserve the rights of minorities whereas the aim of the state is to promote the welfare of the people. One should not consider that Indian judiciary is as free as American judiciary.
Stop-and-Frisk violates that right of citizens by frisking them on the streets. They do not stop to show them a permit or anything like that. “Under the Fourth Amendment to the US constitution adopted as a part of the Bill of Rights in 1791. ‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizure, shall not be violated and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.’ Stop-and-Frisk fails to abide by the rights of others, and that is unfair and unreasonable. “What constitutes an “unreasonable” search or seizure under the Fourth Amendment in the context of a Stop-and-Frisk was decided by the Supreme Court in its 1968 Terry v. Ohio ruling.” There is no telling what the officer 's count as reasonable and suspicious sometimes it mainly deals with the color of their
Should the right to bears arms be more restricted? The governments primary role is to protect the right 's of law abiding citizens, so when did restricting those rights become so popular? The school and mass shooting 's that have plagued our country over the recent years have been the result of mentally disturbed criminals. The fundamental problem with gun bans or further restricting gun rights is that it only works on citizens that are already predisposed to obey the law in the first place. Criminals, which by definition have no regard for the law, will not be phased by the governments restrictions with such laws.
The Civil War was a great turning point for Americans and their ideas and thoughts of freedom. Slavery began to be questioned because of this change, as several writings express the belief of everyone having freedom and equality. For example, the “Gettysburg Address” by Abraham Lincoln strongly expresses that every man was created equal and everyone should put that into action. Another writing example is “Ain’t I a Woman” by Frances Dana Gage expresses that all people, men and women deserve to receive the same rights as everyone else and no one should be cast aside because of their race, or gender. In the “Gettysburg Address” Abraham Lincoln shows that the idea of everyone being equal is strongly supported.
Justice is something that everyone seeks, and wants to see be given to all. These are statements that I wish were true. In fact, as Americans, justice is something people want to see given only to those believed to be deserving of it. Justice is fairness, can only be reached within the confines of equality, and is, as Americans, part of our pledge for all be given the right to it. Fairness has been sought for by mankind since the beginning of time.
Constitution protects the individual rights of its citizens. In this case, even if Ohio had its own laws it was shown that the supreme law has more weight in some cases than the state. Every individual citizen of the United States has the same rights, and they cannot be violated in any aspect. In the case of Mapp v Ohio the officers violated the privacy of Mapp and made a search to a private property without the proper documentation in this case the search warrant. Even if the officers did not cause any harm to any of the individuals living at the property, the evidence found should not be considered as valid to present it at a trial.
A nation based on freedom and justice for all. A country that doesn’t judge on race, gender, or religious views. We are a nation that was made with the idea that all men are created equal. However, we still struggle to live up to that idea to this day. We will solve this by increasing cultural proficiency in education.
