These statements hindered my acceptance of the Beautiful and Wonderful Gospel of Christ. One statement was “God hates gays”, although, this is untrue there are plenty of Christians who will stand by this statement, and, by effect turn many away from the Gospel. The” don’t do as I do, do as I say”, hypocritical, actions of some has pushed many away. For example, someone who is committing fornication, yet, condemns a homosexual is enough for some people to react negatively to the Good News. The issues of historical events, such as slavery, the Crusades, and the Salem witch trials, all have some impact on why people deny the Gospel.
King used a very strong quote that stated, “ An unjust law is no law at all.” This quote was from a great Christian philosopher and king knew the clergymen couldn’t ignore the words of such a wise man. King also used emotion to find common ground with the clergymen. He showed the real feelings that were felt when the black man is told that he cannot ride on this bus, because black people are filthy. King consistently used morality to help find common ground. He touched on how having two separate drinking fountains, one for whites and one for blacks, saying that it just wasn’t morally right.
Every abortion is tragic to that extent of ending a human life but given the option of choice is a gift from God and part of what makes being human worthwhile. To be politically pro-choice is to deny the freedom to some and grant it to others. Some liberals might say that this is an atrocity to God and his compassionate gift of choice. The Bible evidently teaches us that all humans are made in the image of God and grant us the freedom to choose. Unfortunately, there are several different reasons that conclude why abortions are appropriate in certain cases.
We are not measured for sex, race, or where we come from. At least that’s how it was supposed to be but in my opinion, it is a lie. It doesn’t apply for those who are homosexuals, those who are labeled, when they are really like me and you with a different type of view. I think if I was a colonist back then I would not support the declaration of independence. I would not go against it but just like the republicans and radicals with the constitution, I would try to do something to better it.
Even though Todd and Reggie are homosexuals the professional should not be worrying about their homosexuality, instead the professional should be worried about the relationship issues that brought Todd and Reggie in to see them. If I was the human service professional for this case, I would not feel uncomfortable about Todd and Reggie being homosexual because this is their personal beliefs. I personally do not agree or disagree with this type of behavior because it’s not for me to judge, but I was raised up to know that morally it is wrong to be in a
It is not easy to change things which are natural. Even if, homosexuality was a choice, it is against the constitution to discriminate people who have voluntarily chosen to enter into civil unions because that will be violating the constitution. The society is liberal and, everybody should be allowed the freedom of association and that of pursuing happiness as long as they do not interfere with the freedoms of other citizens. Recognizing civil unions by the federal government is a way of respecting the rights and freedoms of homosexuals. It is also a way of demonstrating the society’s willingness to tolerate other people who are different from them.
In Dr. King’s Letter from Birmingham City Jail, he says "A just law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or the law of God." He believed in the law of the country and the law of the church. He did not believe in any form of violence as correct, since it endangers human life; and any kind of law or action, which is harmful or unjust to human beings anywhere, is an unjust law. The just law is a law, which believes in equality, does not distinguish between people by color, religion, status, position, age or money. Any law, which uplifts human personality, is a just law and one has a moral responsibility to obey a just law.
Allysa Collado AP Language Comp Period 6 11/30/13 There is another addition to the growing debate on same sex marriage: the passing of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Andrew Rosenthal in “Gay Rights, Congress Lags” argues that the Employment Non-Discrimination Acts was indeed passed but its passing will be no use due or “dead” once it arrives to the House because it’s controversial to religion--and by religion, Christianity. Rosenthal encourages his readers to believe that this act is needed and shouldn’t be treated as nothing and argues that this act needs to be taken action of and must be passed without any exception for workers’ equality. Andrew Rosenthal is right, that the Employment Non Discrimination Act is needed to be passed without any religious exception. Andrew Rosenthal gathers support by essentially stating: If President Obama thinks sex discrimination is an offense, then people should believe so too.
“I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act. This was discrimination enshrined in law. It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser class of people. The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it. We are a people who declared that we are all created equal - and the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” (Obama).
Other Christians, like Quakers, may agree with this quote as they believe that everyone has equal rights and no one is the leader, this is because God created everyone the same. ‘Love thy neighbour’ (New Testament) This means that you should love everyone as a friend, this creates peace amongst society. Therefore all criminals should not be treated differently, this is because by doing so it shows they are cared for and creates peace and harmony throughout everyone. Other Christians may disagree with this quote but only for people who have ended another person’s life, this is because they think that God made life precious and we should
