Homosexuality is defined as the sexual relationships between members of the same biological sex. Typically, it stands for social relationships between men, while lesbianism stands for relationships between women (Collins Dictionary Of Sociology, 2006). Recognizing one’s sexual orientation is an integral process that can happen throughout the whole life (Floyd and Bakeman, 2013). Origin of homosexuality is always debated. Kahn (1995) thinks that homosexuality is affected by upbringing of one, while Rosario (2002) thinks that one’s sexuality is genetically determined.
Early American antisodomy laws discouraged all forms of non-procreative sex (including, incidentally, heterosexual oral and anal sex). Islam shares a similar view. One Islamic hadith explains that Allah "will not look at the man who commits sodomy with a man or a woman.” According to a government based article “Preserving marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman is the most effective way to avoid the dangers to religious liberty associated with granting legal recognition to same-sex unions.” The largest country that recognizes gay marriage to be legal is the United States of America with 64% of the population in recognition. However, 3.5% of those recognitions are authentically gay, lesbian or bisexual. Additionally, over 39% of the Americans that support same-sex marriage is due to the fact that they have a close relative that is homosexual.
Introduction Sexual conversion therapy is defined as “a process through which reparative therapists believe they can and should make heterosexuals out of homosexuals” by Chuck Bright, award winning psychology author. He goes on to explain that this practice originates from the belief that homosexuality is sinful and immoral, which comes from traditional religious beliefs (Bright 472). Gregory M. Herek, professor of psychology at the University of California, notes in his article that the term homosexuality was first brought up in the early 1900s to define a mental illness. In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and the APA called for psychologists to work to remove the stigma historically associated with homosexuality (693). This explains how there is a long history of negative connotations surrounding homosexuality socially, and it was not until recent years when there were movements made to change this.
Samuel Huntington’s article The Hispanic Challenge argues that Hispanics, specifically Mexicans, are not true American citizens. According to Huntington, Americans are people who believe in the American creed. However, he believes this creed is being threatened. For some time now, large influxes of Hispanic immigrants have been coming to the US and have brought their own culture with them. The writer of Speaking in Tongues, Gloria Anzaldua, believes that Hispanics have the right to hold onto their culture in America.
Sexual orientation is a challenging subject for those who have no viable knowledge with the matter. For those who deal with sexual orientation confusion, coming to terms with oneself is a challenge. For those who are homosexual, and grow up in the Catholic Church, are subjected to gay conversion therapy to rid them of their sins. Gay conversion therapy is the act of treating homosexuals as though they are diseased of the mind and must be cured of their illness, their homosexual thoughts. Homosexual boys and men are either forced into conversion therapy or make a voluntary choice to attend because they were raised to believe their sexuality is unnatural.
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.
Heterosexuals deal with lust as much as homosexuals. To have a thought is not of itself sinful. How that thought is entertained will determine whether that thought becomes sinful. Will I give in to my lusts or will I bring them captive to Christ? A person can identify therefore as homosexual but not give in to their lusts and live a godly life, just as a single man
