Is Sexual Orientation Conversion Therapy Ethical? An individual’s sexual orientation has been a subject of debate for years among our society. Even today, professionals still discuss whether a person’s sexual orientation is determined by biological or environmental factors. Others discuss their ethical belief on conversion therapies. People have the right to choose who they want to love weather that be male or female.
Introduction: The issues of homosexual marriages is very complex, especially who, or who should not be married. In my opinion, this is wrong, it is a preference. I am hoping this paper will show why it is wrong to determine who should marry who. I will take into account all the factors of marriage; including evolution of marriage, history of marriage, legal issues, civil rights, human biology the reproduction, children, religion, love, relationships, heterosexual and homosexual issues. I hope to change your prospective on homosexual’s marriage, and for you to re-look at your views.
In order to understand homosexuality, you must understand full what it is. Homosexuals are attracted to their same sex. However, with that said this does not mean that the gay man wants to be a woman or the gay woman wants to be a man. Most are satisfied in their own body and they are just intimate with a person of their own sex. (Rathus, Nevid & Fichner-Rathus, 2005) Historical and scientific viewpoints are greatly significant in the way that gay persons distinguish themselves today and how the development of gay communities have grown and changed.
Because sexual diversity in contemporary times has become quite vast, these perspectives adhere to a worldly understanding of homosexuality. Historical perspectives on homosexuality vastly stem from religions around the globe and sexual behaviors of past societies. For instance, homosexuality relations of past Greek and Roman cultures were once frequent but denouncing those sexual associations became the belief of the Christian religion. These Christian beliefs and legalities together made way for viewing homosexuality as sinful and inappropriate, which became punishable under criminal offenses. Another historical perspective on homosexuality stems from traditionally specific gender roles.
Rather, current scientists agree that human sexuality (like other human behaviors) are due to the influence of a combination of social, biological, genetic and psychological factors. As a result the current literature offers a number of integrative models in which both biogenetics and the environmental (the mental and the physical) factors are used to explain the origins of homosexuality. The purpose of this paper is to review the relevant current research on the
Jesus and Muhammad have played a large role in two of the world’s leading religions in today’s society, Islam and Christianity. Although many argue that there are some clashing differences in Islam and Christianity there are also remarkable similarities. It is argued that Islam was founded on Violence while Christianity is founded on unity and peace. One event that made a change in the beliefs and differences of the Christian and Islamic faith was September 11th. In this paper I will be discussing Islam and Christianity as well as the roles both Jesus and Muhammad played in the matter.
Both inherently believe that their higher power, despite the difference in name, is the ultimate judge and directs the paths of his followers. Yet, there are members of Christianity and Islam who often become the judge and act accordingly. In recent years, Christians have been at the helm of hate crimes against Muslims, and Muslim extremists have performed several catastrophic acts of terrorism. Despite this occurrence, Christianity and Islam still have similar beliefs and principles in regards to how to live their lives and the relationship with their Supreme Being. Specifically, the Quran and the Bible set a blueprint about how Muslims and Christians should interact with other people, and the punitive measures that will be imposed if these guidelines are not followed.
With these facts, gay marriage should not be considered an abomination nor a sin. . Gay Marriage vs. the Bible: Hypocrisy of Life The dream of every young girl is to one day stand before her family, friends, and God and commit her life in marriage to the one she loves. However, the dream of marriage for homosexuals is tarnished with acts of hatred, homophobia, and constant hypocrisy from those that interpret the Bible in a manner that benefits their own personal beliefs and understanding. This is a country based on freedom of religion, yet the religion in which this country was founded on,
Pope Paul VI’s encyclical on the Church’s teaching on procreation and the meaning and purpose of the sexual gift within a marriage. The encyclical offered reasons for the immorality of contraception and predicted what would take place if it were to become common in society; there would be an increase in marital infidelity and a general lowering of the morality of the youth. Marriage signifies the reciprocation of the “personal gift of self, proper and exclusive to them, husband and wife tend towards the communion of their beings in view of mutual personal perfection, to collaborate with God in the generation and education of new lives.” Man and woman were deliberately supposed to comprehend and appreciate each other fully in the marriage. The Catholic Church believes this can only be done when you are fully committed to one person in your marriage in your lifetime. The Bible states, “What God has joined together, no human must separate.” (Mark 10:9) Ultimately God’s plan in marriage should not be broken or compromised.
“Is Homosexuality Immoral?” Is homosexuality immoral? As many believers say, the bible said so! As of May 2008, Gallup.com revealed that 48% of Americans accept homosexuality as moral unacceptable while the other 48% find it acceptable. With mistranslation, misconception, and misleadingness, there may be a chance that homosexuality is not an act of abomination. What is homosexuality?
