Preston Sprinkle goes into great detail on this issue in his book “Born this Way.” In defining the subject Sprinkle takes time to remind us that the sin occurs when someone acts out upon their lusts or entertains their lusts in their mind. Having certain feelings doesn’t make one guilty. How we entertain those thoughts does? This is certainly true outside of the homosexual debate. Heterosexuals deal with lust as much as homosexuals.
This is consistent with the principle of freedom and equality. Withholding civil marriage from homosexual couples violates a fundamental right: the right to marry the partner of one’s choice. According to the Article 12 of the European Convention on Human Rights, men and women have the rights to marry and found a family in their marriageable age. Legalising homosexual marriage in Hong Kong could allow the same-sex couples enjoy the same rights with the opposite-sex couples. Apart from providing fundamental right, legalisation could reduce the social discrimination.
In my perspective, Goldman's way to deal with sexual flexibility has an exceptionally cutting edge feel, however his hypothesis is in no way, shape or form new. Mischief is unquestionably an essential pointer of immorality, yet it is by all account not the only good litmus tests that we have. This is the place Goldman may have turned out badly. The historical backdrop of morals is bounteous with choices for testing the morality of any activity, including non-customary sexual practices. Goldman is stating that there is a qualification between the love of married couples and an immediately shaped relationship of teenagers (Russo, n.d).
Nowadays, love is shared not only between men and women, but also between two people of the same-sex. Homosexuals these days can expose their relationship to the public. However, in the past, the love of homosexuals was forbidden and seemed to be a taboo. The contrast between the natural forces of desire and love of homosexuals and the prejudice of old society can be seen very clearly through the story “Brokeback Mountain” by Annie Proulx. “Brokeback Mountain” speaks about the love story between two men as well as the discrimination of society.
Because the author seems to be satisfied with the man's spiritual love. However, that is a mere lamentation of the reality that author cannot own the man's body. If the author only pursued emotional love to his beloved without any ambitions of physical love, all the vague, complimentary words to the man's beauty wouldn't have been necessary. Furthermore, by emphasizing that the man's beauty is superior to any other girls, the author implies his homosexuality. Thus, it is unreasonable to argue the sonnet 20 regards pure male friendship, not about sexual
It is interesting that Plato portrays the relationship between men only, but not the typical relationship between men and women. It may because Plato wants to stress more on the “original nature/ value” of love: love that is far away from physical desire (i.e. sex/ impressions towards one’s physical body). We should appreciate one’s spirit according to Plato. We love each other because we share the similar, or same values.
It means that homosexuality has an element that is not perceptibly different from each other, although the limits are quite distinct. Romans 1:26-28 states that “26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be
Although both poems symbolized love and passion the ending of the poem could not have been more different. Porphyria 's lover is a tragic love story that ends in death and no remorse, “ her cheek once more blushed bright beneath my burning kiss: I propped her head up as before, only this time my shoulder bore her head which droops upon it still. The guy lacked empathy and compassion the love he had for Porphyria eventually brought her to her death. Whereas Adam and Eve the writer knows what he feels for Eve is strong, and he can barely resist her, however, he quickly comes to realize his thoughts may be uncalled for and obnoxious leading him to question himself. Unlike Porphyria 's Lover, Adam is disgusted and feels a sense of remorse he has empathy a conscience the writer states “until we say the truth there can be no tenderness, as long as there is desire we cannot be safe.” After being rejected by women, both narrators have extreme reactions, and both are internalized throughout the

Indeed, marriage is marriage, man and woman or woman and woman or man and man. What is the status of same-sex marriage in the Philippines? Although same-sex marriages are not legally recognized by the government, “The Metropolitan Community Church of Metro Baguio in the Philippines conducts holy unions for gay couples because they say ‘no law is higher than love’” as stated in Leach’s article (2012). After this controversial event, the issue about homosexual union came into the limelight. Many views and arguments arose regarding equality on sex and religion.
