From the very beginning of time, God created Adam and Eve, man and woman. God blessed the man and the woman with the words “Be fruitful and multiply” (Sacred text). From this point on it has been known that a marriage should take place between a man and a woman. Like I stated above same sex couples do not have the ability to do as God blessed, “Be fruitful and multiply.” In the church homosexual practices are known as “sins gravely contrary to chastity.” Whether or not people believe that homosexuality is a sin is, in fact, their own opinion. People who engage in these same-sex relationships will suffer consequences whether they want to or not.
It has been around for numerous decades and brings forth different outlooks on the subject matter. Abortion is a virtuous and ethical issue of the principles, values and beliefs of individuals of our society. Christian influences have caused worldwide condemnation of this practice.

By the twentieth century, the United States, along with several other countries, amended the law in order to legalize abortion.
Outline the ways in which religious beliefs can be used to clarify dilemmas in sexual ethics. Many issues arise with sexual ethics when religious beliefs- particularly roman catholic- are considered. The largest and most noticeable dilemma is perhaps the contrast of modern, social beliefs and the teachings of religion, one disagreement present is the acceptance of homosexuality. Current law is being questioned over the legality of homosexual marriage whilst the Catholic bible and church strongly state otherwise. However, dilemmas in sexual ethics are not only approached through religion, for instance, in ancient Greece both Pythagoras and Stoics believed that the soul was imprisoned in the body and can only be released through the disregarding of the base pleasure, sex.

Second, when the master’s wife tried to seduce Joseph, his responses were different in in Hebrew Bible and Koran. In Koran, while the woman was trying to seduce Joseph, he mentioned about God.

One of the most used arguments about the issue is that God says that same-sex interactions (marriage, sex, lesbian, homosexual acts) are abominations. How could it be an abomination if people are being themselves? Why would God only hate homosexuals if it says that he loves everyone? The fact that homosexuals will threaten religion is wrong. Religions has always been supported as the fundamental reliable source of truth which was supported and promoted by the Roman Catholic church, René Descartes the French philosopher, scientist, and mathematician challenged the churches authority to provide these truths, this created an era when the roman catholic church was challenged by many philosophers as the sole interpreter and providers of truths and findings from philosophers like Aristotle.
