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
LGBT citizens created equal, discriminating against them is a violation of their civil rights and should be considered a crime. In the American political spectrum, Republicans have publicly declared war on LGBT people, denying their right to equality and freedom. They use their religious faith as a humiliating weapon to keep homosexuals and others away from the whole community. To those politicians; who strongly root on the bible; Lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders are sinners immoral people who do not fear the creator. These LGBT opponents
The cultural definition of deviant behavior in the Amish community is way more extreme by modern Americans definition. Most Americans view deviant behavior as breaking the law, or behavior that does not conform to the norms of a particular society. They wouldn’t label watching television, driving a car, or wearing immodest clothes as divergent, since it is socially seen as normal. They might view the Amish as deviant because they refuse to participate in the normal practices of most Americans. These varying views of deviance highlights how essential one’s upbringing is in shaping the decisions they
Which according to law, the government must not in any way favor one religion over another, moreover in this case the displays clearly violated the Establishment Clause because they were presented with texts-scriptures from the Bible involving in a particular promotion of Christian religion. As religion plays a big part of a politics, not just in the United States, but also in other countries. A chosen religion can severely impact citizens in negative ways. For that, some countries grow and some countries can go into destruction. Having this in mind religious freedom is one of the main reasons people come to America.
Every action matters and can change the outcome depending on how we perceive and respond to one’s actions. Modern-day America can relate to the characters in The Crucible due to the hysteria that is always forming. America as a nation responds differently to different terrorist groups opposed to terrorist attacks. In both instances, they threaten our way of life similarly to how the idea of witchcraft had threatened the religious aspect of a Puritan’s life. For a terrorist group, negative images and emotions are received since it gives America the lack of security notion.
Herbert J. Storing, an Associate Professor of Political Science, in “The Case Against Civil Disobedience,” writes, “One of the practical consequences of this institution [civil disobedience] is to divert disobedience and even revolution into the channel of law” (97). What Storing is saying is that civil disobedience will encourage people to break the laws and they will hide under civil disobedience to avoid the law. Also, civil disobedience might split society by creating disagreements with the people, and it could create a political instability. However, Storing fails to see that those who break an unjust law, as discussed above, do not avoid the law, in fact they show respect to the law as they willingly accept the consequences. By accepting the consequences, they show that they are not acting for their own interests but for society’s.
Ways that I see persecution happening in today’s world are when people are discriminatory against gays and lesbians, and I see racial profiling of muslims. ISIS, an extremist group, is persecuting several groups of people as well. I think people need to realize that what they are doing is bad and that it should not be socially accepted to persecute a group of people. If more people are educated about the groups of people being targeted then they will realize that they don’t deserve to be persecuted. 5.
Tyler Oakley once said, in his book Binge,“This is why homophobia is a terrible evil: it disguises itself as concern while it is inherently hate.” This is one of the most important topics the world is facing: Homophobia. Homophobia is the fear & hating of people in the LGBTQ+ community. People in this community face discrimination from all around them. However, I believe this shouldn’t be the case. If I had the option of changing the world, the one change I would make is stopping the discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ individuals because they face too much discrimination, some of them are extremely strong and powerful, and all face violence and sometimes murdering.
“no religious outlook or Weltanschauung, can enjoy a privileged status, let alone be adopted as the official view of the state” I found this passage noteworthy because it demands that no religious outlook be put before another, but that is exactly what happens and has been happening, all these years. I would like to say that I think the reason there is such a lack of equality with different countries and “cultures” and why we are in constant war is because of this exact reason; religion. Most religious people always think their religion is better than another persons and this causes conflict. The countries laws reflect their religious views in the morals that they choose to have. If religion wasn 't such a big concept would we find peace between different cultures and countires?
Also professional business could risk government sanctions because they don?t treat gays and straight couples the same because they believe it is wrong. The reason of marriage is to procreate and expand the population and with gay marriage you just can?t do that. Today I have tried to persuade you why I think gay marriage shouldn?t be allowed. Allowing it just wouldn?t set a good example for the next generation, why leave our kids with a mess we could fix for them. Work Cited Huckabee, Mike.
