Lena Duong ENC 1101 Fall B December 4, 2013 Research Essay Same-Sex Marriages You want to know what I think about gay marriage? I think that people should be allowed to marry whoever they want to marry, whether it's man to woman, man to man, or woman to woman, whatever the case may be. It is not fair to ban something that means nothing but love.
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.
Homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted and integrated into today’s society, however, when it comes to homosexuals establishing families, a problem is posed. In most states, homosexuals can adopt children like any other married or single adult. There are many arguments to this controversial topic; some people believe that it should be legal nationally, while others would prefer that is was banned everywhere, or at least in their individual states. There are logical reasons to allow gays to adopt children, but for some, these reasons are not enough. The main issue really is, what is in the best interest of the child? This type of problem isn’t really one with causes, effects, and solutions, but one with pros and cons. Like any other adoption situation, a parent prove themselves to be responsible and capable enough to raise a child on their own, or with a spouse.
Joey Cho Mrs. Middleton English 10 17 October 2016 Persuasive Research Essay Outline Introduction LGBT/ same-sex marriage is one of the most heated and controversial debates in our current society. Unlike the past thousands of years whereas marriage was defined as a legal union between a man and a woman, now the concept of marriage has been extended to a broader context. “Homosexuality” in most cultures is viewed as a disgrace, and it is often considered as a great sin from a religious aspect.
The debate around same-sex marriage was is a good idea to legalize it. I believe that same-sex marriage should be legal. I don’t think there is anything wrong with people of the same sex getting married. Now the concept of traditional marriage has changed and the power of love is more important than gender in my opinion.
The adopted children can grow up like other children as well. But owing to the different comprehension of religion and morality, there are still some people who think children adopted by gay parents will become mentally unhealthy. They hold the following views. First, children are more possible to suffer sexual assault by homosexual parents. Second, they think the adopted children are vulnerable to teasing and harassment, particularly as they approach adolescence.
In a recent surveys it is shown that over 27% of children in America are being raised by single parents, and over 2 million children are raised by homosexual couples. The old average image of a middle class white family with two parents, and a stable environment is no longer the normal or highly viewed social standing. Various movies, television shows, books, and other forms of literature depict families of different background and standings. For example, in the popular television show Modern Family depicts two gay men raising their adopted daughter and a blended family, the people on the show are always caring for and show constant love for their children. Even though they are not under normal circumstances the children of these different families are growing up in a loving and stable environment.
Gay marriage is an example of how Christians make it difficult for people of other points of view to feel like they fit in. The bible states that two men should not be in a romantic relationship where as people of opposite gender can do so. It is completely up to one’s personal perspective to understand what is right or
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.
When people talk about the homosexual life style, typically the first thing that follows is how it is against the religion of many, which then leads people to deny the idea of ever letting a same-sex couple adopt a child. Though in their religion it may be wrong to live “that lifestyle”, who is to say whose religion or belief is wrong or right. Not all people live their lives in a religious way and due to this, sometimes the idea of religion should be removed from the situation so that another point of view can be seen. Another reason same-sex adoption is seen so negatively is because of the idea that a child must have both a mother and father in their lives to be happy and healthy(Fitzgibbons). This perspective is one that seems to be the biggest problem for most people when it comes to the idea of a same-sex couple adopting a child.
If it doesn't affect you or your rights, they have a right to do it no matter your opinion. But as I mature my religion feels populated with people who do not follow the fundamental idea; treat everyone, the way God and Jesus would. I may not agree or endorse homosexual marriage; it does not mean I have a right to treat them any less than I would my brother. I am not a Republican. I do not promote vilifying Republicans, insulting their intelligence, and throwing their ideas away.
