Yes, most religions are against same-sex marriage but that religion does not speak for everybody. Most people are against same sex marriage because of religion. Research is showing that most people do not even believe in religion at all anymore. I agree with Sotomayor when she says how does withholding marriage from LGBTQ community increase value to another. While I definitely understand why people were upset I believe it was step forward in the equal rights when it come to the LGBTQ community.
Liberals support same-sex marriage and argue that love is grounds enough for marriage, regardless of sexual orientation. Conservatives are usually opposed and often cite religious viewpoints and concerns about the reading of children as the main reasons for their opposition. In the 1970s the court case Baker v. Nelson occurred. It was a case in which the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that a state law limiting marriage to persons of the opposite sex did not violate the U.S. Constitution. On June 26, 2015 the United States Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states.
The future of same-sex marriage has long been a question in the United States; on June 26, 2015, under the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Obergefell v. Hodges, the country finally got an answer. In a five to four decision, the Supreme court determined that under the Fourteenth Amendment, marriage between same- sex couples is legal in all fifty states. Under this decision, states that had previously banned same-sex marriage will have to recognize and permit same-sex marriage within their boundaries. The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges is a landmark decision that will not affect same-sex couples throughout the nation, but also every aspect of our society. Having been hired by a sociologist who wants to study the effect of
The backlash on the ruling is much warranted. I say this because if we took a national poll, the ruling would be that gay marriage would not be allowed. We live in a democratic society where the people "should" rule but as always, the government has the final say. Although I do agree with the backlash and understand why it is happening I still hold firm to my belief that they should still be allowed to marry. I believe this because if my neighbors who are both males were to marry each other, why or how does that influence or affect my life.
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
Same-sex marriage has a near even split of people that are for or against it. This split is seen clearly in the Obergefell v. Hodges case in the U.S. Supreme Court, where the decision was 5 to 4. The majority in this case chose to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This decision brought a lot of controversy from the U.S. citizens, and the controversy came from the question if the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell was the correct decision for America. The answer is no.
Is it unsettling that there is no uniformity of laws regarding gay marriage across the United States? Some states allow gay marriage, some allow civil unions, and some states allow no form of homosexual domestic partnerships, at least not ones recognized formally. What does that mean for homosexual Americans? Does the pending repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” military policy make students feel more optimistic about rights for gay people in America?
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.
We are allowed to voice our opinions. There is separation of church and state, which means that there can’t be laws made about religion. Recently, gay marriage was made legal in all fifty states. However, a judge in Kentucky has denied same-sex couples marriage licenses. It could be argued that if she denied it for her own religious beliefs, it violates the First Amendment.
America is a free county where individuals can make their own decision according to their believes. Gay marriage or same sex marriage in America is considered legal for people who do it. Every human is created different, also have different believes, considerations and prospective in everything that we do. In this case of Jack Phillips who refused to bake cake for same sex marriage, I think Phillips shouldn’t be in court because he didn’t break any laws nor did illegal crime. Jack refused make a cake because he stands against it .According to Jack Phillips
Hodges (2015) the Supreme Court held that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees the right to marry as one of the fundamental liberties it protects, applying to same-sex couples the same as opposite-sex couples. This case was brought forward by numerous groups of same-sex couples who were suing their relevant state agencies to challenge the constitutionality of those states’ same-sex marriage laws. The Supreme Court found that there is no difference between same-sex marriages and opposite-sex marriages, therefore, the exclusion of same-sex couples from the right to marry violates the Due Process Clause. This is policy making because the Supreme Court forced states to change their laws by deciding that it was against the constitution to not only ban the recognition of same-sex marriages that occurred in states that allowed it, but also making same-sex marriage legal in all states. Government officials even those who do not believe in the law change must abide by it, by allowing same-sex couples their now legal right to be married and receive the benefits that opposite-sex married couples receive; changing the way that citizens and the government interact in societal ways but also financial
The Supreme Court kept referring back to the Loving v. Virginia case because both cases had the same principles which were equality and not having the right to marriage. According to the Supreme Court “These new insights have strengthened, not weakened, the institution of marriage.” Also “Under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” These liberties include certain personal choices which include intimate choices. Marriage is coming together for better or for worse and same sex couples should have the same right as
There is discrimination in this world to this day, there is discriminations against “people who are gay”. This discrimination is just like the Holocaust, because the Germans didn’t like the jews. I believe the gay marriage should have been approved long before it was. People need to realize judging someone because they are gay is wrong, that person is obviously an idiot. It is not up to people to judge other people because they are gay.
Freedom of religion is the choice whether a person decides to practice a religion or not. When people are allowed to have freedom of religion, it makes living in the US better due to the fact that not many other countries have this type of practice. Freedom
