What is companionship? Many would say that these are just two things that go hand in hand in what many would consider marriage, but according to Sprigg, “It’s still not sufficient to define marriage”(Sprigg P.7). In addition, He uses this to support his protest that homosexual relationships shouldn’t be given the legal status of marriage. To some this is all simply a man answering questions while declaring his standpoint on the topic, but to me it’s much more. As a member-for lack or a better word- of the LGBT community it honestly breaks my heart to see that someone could be so determined that marriage defies same-sex relationships as well as have the audacity to even claim said unions have any ‘consequences’ at all, and negative at that.
There are a large number of people who believe that Islam is not compatible with Western culture. This belief is likely due to a combination of things. Radical Islamic terrorist groups are the first reason. Why would a religion of peace be able to produce groups that are capable of such heinous crimes against humanity? Another reason is that many Islamic countries practice Sharia Law which is not at all in line with western values as it oppresses women and homosexuals.
A very popular topic that divides the nation greatly is abortion, many think its wrong and cruel, while others believe its correct in certain situations. You can see the effects of this with the government trying to defund Planned Parenthood, Congress votes to defund and the president overrides it and nothing gets achieved. Media might want to portray this as “Men being horrible humans and they have no right to choose what a women can do with their bodies” and attack men, but there are also women against Planned Parenthood, and thats how it goes with controversial topics, media try to shape to what benefits them and their views. Or, they will try to portray it a specific way that only shows one side saying horrific things and not the other . This is called Political Socialization which is the process by which people form their ideas about politics and acquire their ideas about the government.
Which means that there is no logical reasoning behind people disapproval of gay marriage. Rather, it is merely something which someone else’s religion dislikes. At the end, marriage is not defined by religion; but instead interpreted by the government. Even if the “holy book tells you to wed all the girls in apartment 3G” you are still are not allowed to do so. Regarding the controversial issue of same sex marriage.
Homosexuality was once considered sacred in ancient Rome, albeit being treated poorly since the middle ages. Like this, homosexuality has been suppressed for a long time and thenceforth, the public opinion towards it has been on a downward road until recent years when LGBT groups started stepping up front and coming out along with the increasing controversy towards their rights. The subject of homosexuality has always been polemical. Every once in a while a news article would come up saying something like "Manny Pacquiao provokes storm by calling gay people ‘worse than animals’" or "Sam Smith Talks Coming Out As Gay". Issues like these may well be controversial, being based on an individual 's creed and principles.
Just because certain homo individuals act a specified way, doesn 't necessarily mean all of them act the same. She would like for this to occur because, it is constantly happening and people are basically mimicking these human-beings. It is really unnecessary and if you choose to do so, it should be in the right way. Not one person no matter if they are into the same things may act alike, and doing so can be harmful to those you are speaking upon. The strategy used help people understand that the homosexuals aren’t alike and all don’t act the same as another one do.
Sexuality rights is often overlooked in history especially in the 20th century as not many historians talked about the inequality for gays and lesbians therefore it is hard to say this form of inequality shaped the United States. Gay liberation can be linked to feminism as in the 1960s homosexuals also stood up for their own rights in the fight against inequality. Throughout the 20th century gay and lesbians were described as “sinful or mentally disordered”, as it was illegal in most states, seen as irregular and against the traditional American values of heterosexual marriages. McCarthyism pronounced gays to be a source of “national weakness” a focal point that caused controversy around gays and lesbians. Carl Wittman declared a Gay Manifesto stating how San Francisco is a “refugee camp for homosexuals” a place where people had fled from “blackmailing cops, from families who disowned or “tolerated” us”, it shows the inequality as gay people were treated horribly but of fear of abuse has to pretend “everything was OK”.
Conversion Therapy Although many people have strong convictions against gay people, sometimes leading parents to attempt to change their children’s sexual orientation, it should be banned on a national level for parents to be able to force their children under the age of 18 into conversion therapy because it is unconstitutional, it evidently damages the child's wellbeing, and the methods have never even been proven by credible research. Members of the ex-gay (anti-LGBT) movement argue that banning reparative therapy is an infringement on the rights to freedom of speech and religion, while parents following this movement have similar feelings and believe that putting their child through conversion therapy will help them be ridded of an "unwanted
In the article “For Gay Marriage,” author Andrew Sullivan claims that denying the act over the controversial issue of legalizing marriage to homosexuals is the most offensive act pertaining to their communal tolerance. The main plea amplifies that the religious customs, state affairs, and the accustomed marriage is noted as acceptable in today’s society. Sullivan states that he is not getting into what churches do in their open biblical session, but what he believes the state should be more involved and take action to fix the social acceptance among homosexuals. By putting together that homosexuals should have the same basic rights as heterosexuals including marriage sparks the author to suggest that homosexuals are just as financially independent
Why do people have a problem with gay marriage? It is not all people who have a problem with gay marriage, but there are those who believe that gay marriage is an abomination and goes against God. Others however, believe that people are just people, and it does not matter if you are gay or not. Charles Colson believes that gay marriage is the end of the tradition of marriage; especially if gay couples are able to adopt children. Katha Pollitt however, believes that it does not matter if a couple is gay, straight, or elderly; as long as they are happy together and love one another.
Colorado, in 1992, was one of the first states to experience a rising cultural conflict between the LGBT community and religious groups. These religious groups, the majority in this case, questioned the morality of gay individuals because of their sexual orientation and belief in same sex-marriage which is contrary to several religious doctrines. As social awareness grew, religious groups felt actions opposing the LGBT community were appropriate to keep Colorado on a moral path. The ballot initiative that enacted the 2nd Amendment was the vehicle for religious groups to exercise their power within American’s democratic system. Colorado’s 2nd Amendment excluded
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.
