While the majority of the population believes that the legalization of gay marriage will have negative impact on the society, gay activists claim that it is against basic civil rights to prohibit them from marrying. The constitution gives us many civil rights and remedies. One of the liberty granted to us is to be in pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to chase. They cannot be married to the person they love. It violates their freedoms.
This group of tolerant citizens only malign themselves from the gays because of their religious and church affiliation. The legalization of homosexuality won’t tamper with the church’s beliefs contrary to what many people think. Legalization of gay marriages won’t necessarily mandate or impose upon the churches a legal obligation to officiate the union of parties engaged in such. Churches will still retain the right to choose which marriages to officiate and which not to. This is essential because the freedom of religion has to be upheld too.
By denying the same right as anybody else just because you are different is a clear form of discrimination, and it goes against the constitution. Marriage is a contract between two people and honestly I think that the society should not be interfering this bond. Not permitting the right to marry another human is a severe violation of the human rights and freedom. James Carville “I was against gay marriage until I realized that I didn’t have one.” The statement is self-explanatory: “You don’t get to judge because you don’t have the
This new definition opened the door to gays and lesbians claiming a right to be married, too. (Anonymous) In 2001, Netherlands became the first country to legalize gay marriage. They were soon followed South Africa, Spain, Canada and a great number of other countries and as of 2015, even the United States of American. ( Freedomtomarry.org) But due to its unique service to society, marriage can never be a private lifestyle
Just a year ago gay marriage was not legal in every state in the United States. However, the people stood up for what they believed in a fought to legalize it. While in other countries such as Egypt people are being arrested and put to trial for having a gay marriage ceremony. How is the law just in this situation? And should homosexuals hide what they are for the stake of their country?
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.
Each person has the right to choose who to love whatever his race, nationality, or religion is, similar to having the right to select the candidate you want to vote for in the political elections, but what about the right to choose who you wish to marry? Lately people are arguing about legalizing same sex marriage and in some countries such as the United States, the law has already been applied in all states since 2015. However, many societies till today are strictly against gay marriage and consider it as a taboo such as Middle Eastern countries and a multiple of examples. Even though same sex marriage is widely supported by many people, it will remain to be an erroneous decision because of several Religious and health reasons. Between the
Do you know that being gay isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a sexuality? Did you know that some people in the world are attracted to people of the same gender, but it is still love and it should be just as valid as heterosexuality? Being gay has been treated as a horrible thing in history and still today. People are becoming more accepting of all love, no matter if it is between a woman and a woman, a man and a man, a woman and a man, or neither with either. Love prevails,
Although all fifty states allow gay adoption, adoption agencies tend to frown upon the decision. Gay couples should be able to adopt because it is a great way for children to get adopted, they are just as good as heterosexual parents, and as long as they meet parent criteria, why shouldn’t they? One reason why gay couples should be able to adopt is because they are just as good as heterosexual parents. In the article (Gay Parents Better Than Straight Parents? What Research Says) a psychologist at Clark University who researches gay parenting was interviewed and said “Gay parents tend to be more motivated, more committed than heterosexual parents on average, because they chose to be parents.” This proves that gay couples should be able to adopt because the more motivated parents, the better.
Yet, I personally do not agree with the claim. In fact, homosexuality, as well as same sex couples, have been existing all along, and their existence did not make obvious changes in birth rate in general. Therefore, simple legalizing the homosexuals’ rights and recognizing their marriage shall not lead to a sudden drop in birth rate. Instead, the legalization may even benefit our society by
