Since the initial spike of Gay marriage (gay marriage was legalized in America ever since 2014), there has been a slower demand for gay wedding (Daily Mail, 2016). Without the need of wedding there are already homosexual couple that has cohabited for years.

Yes, she has a right to voice her opinion because of the First Amendment in our Constitution, but that makes it okay for the people that oppose her views to exercise their rights too. Also, building off of that, not everyone follows the same faith and religion she does, so she cannot try force her opinions on others because of her religion. Although I admire her for standing up for what she believes in and standing her ground, I don’t agree with how she’s doing it and I don’t think she’s the right person to set a good role model and be a hero.

As someone said, “Religion is different lamps that all give the same light”. I conclude that though religion has good intentions people use it for their own benefit. Religion may have been a point of unity in the past and it may be so today too but religion is a contentious issue now and seems to be creating a wedge among
In our society, gay marriage opposers are notorious for citing “religious freedom” in order to not serve the LGBT community, and by and large we have accepted this.

By starting out with a question to the reader rather than an opinion he wishes the

Schools do not have the right to discriminate upon students because they believe in a certain religion. According to the Texas Association of School Broads it was mention that if a student is incorporating religion aspects into their assignments that the teacher must only focus on the academic part of their work (Texas Association of School Broads, 2014, P. 3).

A student should be able to express and believe freely without the teacher using this against them. There were several cases that involved students and their religion.
Civil society tends to adhere to the common good, not by governmental enforcement, but in the interest of mediating institutions of society. These institutions are the religious bodies that represent the religious freedom of the people. The mediating institutions refer to the church and the body of religious believers; they serve as the buffer between religious freedom and law.
