Same-sex marriage has been a very big issue in the past two to three years. It was only legal in select states for a long period of time. In 2015, it was legalized in all fifty states. This allowed hundreds and hundreds of people to marry their spouse and have it be on paper like everyone else has the right to do. In an article on this hot topic they say, “ Now that we have moved into the bright sunshine of marriage equality, we’re not likely to move back to the closet and the shadows” (US News). If they know that it’s the law and know we will most likely not return to the old ways, why fight
In the DeLeon v. Perry same sex marriage case we learned of the diversity and disparity in individual rights. As of recent, same sex marriage has become a major issue in the United States and the development of equality for all. Although there are many opposed to same sex marriage suggesting the validity of constitutionality not one individual is against the due process of law. The due process of law is derived from the 5th and 14th Amendments and were established to protect individuals civil liberties and basic rights to life.
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. I believe “if two genders are happy together, then why stop them”. So with my opinion, I support gay marriage.
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 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.
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. But now our society has evolved, we gained clarity and reasons. We are now able to acknowledge and accept people who are different whereas we use to enslave and discriminate people who were a little different. But still, it seems we have a long way to
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.
To most ears, it probably sounds inoffensive. A little outdated and clinical, perhaps, but harmless enough: homosexual. But that five-syllable word has never been more loaded, more deliberately used and, to the ears of many gays and lesbians, more permissiveness.
Morals are not defined by whether you follow a religion. The writings of Iris Murdoch were interesting because she was often questioning religions and why people follow them. Murdoch is often questioning how religion correlates with morals. While she’s not completely bashing religion, she does make many points that express that it is not necessary. She believed in and promoted “dutifulness” and other options or ideas on how to be a decent person in her own ways through other philosophies. Morality is subjective and can stem from philosophy, how a person is raised, what individuals feel is right or wrong, and even religion. Even people with such religious morals go against their faith and cause opposition to what they find right or wrong. Religion
The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments in the Constitution. In modern day, some of these amendments are considered to be out of date, or need to be improved. These amendments are used all the time in normal life, and in the evolution of America.
In this essay I will prove the point that the case of Loving v. Virginia made it inevitable that the court would eventually rule the way it did in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Chief Justice Earl Warren’s opinion on this case was that “Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival… To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious
Every year forced marriage sentences millions of women and young children to a life in slavery. It’s a crime that’s widespread, but rarely spoken about – a crime that flourishes in the shadows of society.

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.
