Since procreation can only occur between a man and a woman then same-sex marriage would not be able to achieve this purpose. There is a huge disconnection between homosexuality, and procreation and therefore, marriage. Lastly, homosexual relationships are abnormal and unnatural. Even though in today’s society, gay couples might be tolerated socially that does not mean gay marriage should be validated by the government. Using the same argument same-sex couples should not receive federal benefits.
However, it has been argued in the past that judges are too alike to politicians, as decisions made by the Supreme Court judges have, and will not be mechanical, but in a lot of cases too biased and political. This argument is strongly supported by the outcome of the major Supreme Court case, Roe vs. Wade. This case was a landmark decision which concerned abortion rights for women. Previously, abortion was a very questionable issue and was not allowed in most states. The case had to arguments put forward, one being ‘pro life’ which did not agree with abortion, and supported by the republicans, and the other being ‘pro choice’, which was supported by democrats.
One main issue with homosexuals not receiving the same rights as heterosexuals is the lack of benefits. Due to that fact that gay couples cannot get married in most states, they also do not have access to most benefits that married couples receive. These benefits include: * Death benefits: if a spouse of an unmarried couple passes, the other spouse cannot receive bereavement, right to file wrongful death claims, or inherit assets. * Family leave: gay spouses do not receive paid leave to care for a sick partner or
Personally I have gone through arguments with many people about the proposition and what I stood for as a person. I do believe that it is a right for gays to be with their other partner, but at the same time I believe that marriage should be considered between a husband and wife, and marriage is not only done under the state, but under God. If homosexuals want to marry in a church or any type of religious place, they shouldn’t because as a fellow believer of God, I don’t see how they can get married under God’s name, where in the Bible marriage is seen between a man and a woman and not a woman and a woman or a man and man. And if they choose not to follow God’s view on marriage, then why should they get married in the house of the Lord? It just does not seem right.
This also confirms with my knowledge in the fact that the conservative leaders were opposed to the women suffrage due to the fact that it would have meant them having to change their ethos, conservative never mentioned allowing women the right to vote in their manifestos. They did not mention this in their manifestos as this would of have meant that they would of lost out on votes for them to become the main party in government, and therefore did not really mention women’s suffrage, but they did oppose it. The leaders did not really mention women’s suffrage because of the fact the backbenchers would of have really opposed their leaders and therefore the party would of have become split and therefore not a strong party. Not only this but the leaders did not mention the women’s suffrage because the house of lords opposed it, meaning that the conservative party would of have been looked down on rather then looked up on by the house of lords if they had mentioned / forwarded the
According to his article many people and political officials get caught up in the religious and personal beliefs of homosexuality and the point that gays Heard 2 * and lesbians cannot procreate together. When actually the topic of gay marriage is more of a civil matter, than personal beliefs and “No civil marriage license is granted on the condition that the couple bears children; and the marriage is no less legal and no less defensible if it remains childless” (404). Sullivan also suggests that legalizing gay marriage would benefit society by providing “role models for young gay people, who, after exhilaration of coming out can easily lapse into short-term relationships and insecurity with no tangible goal in sight (406). Therefore reflecting and emphasizing the sanctity of marriage and commitment to young people who are in this lifestyle. If America is going to embrace the homosexual
Some people believe that the current election process we use in the United States of America is not a fair one. However, most people are not very informed on the details of the election process. Some people believe that all there is to it is to go cast your vote and whoever gets the most votes wins. That is called the popular vote, and to a certain extent, those people would be right. However, that's not all there is to it.
Timothy Chaney Ms. Konner English 25 November 2013 Same Sex Couples Should Have the Right to Marry Why do I believe homosexuals should be able to marry? I believe homosexuals should have the right to marry because my friend dad is a homosexuals and for years he was being tortured and ridiculed because of his decision to be a homosexual. In the past the government did not allow gay marriages or allow homosexuals the same benefits as a one man and one woman marriage. Religion is one of the main reasons some people do not like the idea of homosexuals having the right to marry. One of the common arguments about the issue is God says” that same-sex interactions like marriage are an abomination”.
Moral Act Although for some places, gays are widely accepted, we can’t hide the fact that there are still places wherein gays are discriminated. Gays had been with us since no one can even remember, but up to this moment, they are still not accepted in our society. Is it because of the narrowness of the minds of people to accept such, or is it because that gays are not allowed according to the bible? We don’t know. But discrimination
The issue of same-sex marriage has been debated for a very long time. Whether we will ever reach a middle ground in which both sides can live happily is uncertain. The arguments against same-sex marriage can be seen as unreasonable and bias since much of it is not entirely true. A major argument for the opposition of same-sex marriage is that homosexual marriage negatively affects children and result in many issues children of heterosexual parents do not usually experience. Toni Meyer and Jocelyn Floyd both argue against same-sex marriage relying heavily on the fact that it will harm children today, but does same-sex marriage actually impact our society and more importantly children by doing more harm than good?
