Homosexuals and every other sexual has rights like everyone else
Debate Rounds (4)
Next, I would like to define the conditions or variables to this debate in that;
Different from us: People who practice non-heterosexual preferences. This excludes people such as pansexuals, bisexuals, etc who live lives through heterosexual acts.
Treated Normally: Have the same legal rights in the United States of America
Furthermore, marriage is a religious affiliation and was defined originally from the Bible, altering this definition to accommodate to modern preferences would be breaking the freedom of religion specified in the Constitution by legally redefining a key aspect of their religion. Additionally, in the Bible it specifies that the act of marriage must be, between a man and a woman plus condemning acts of homosexuality.
Additionally, i agree that if they aren't openly gay then we won't know in the first place, well that's true and i may be misinterpreting your message with this so i'll wait to refute this.
Once again, are you arguing moral standards among gender equality or arguing gender sexual preference? With today's science, you are born as one gender and even the best sex-change operations aren't enough to completely convert you to the opposite gender and what I mean by this is that, if you are born male, you will never be able to give birth. Morally speaking, its to preserve peace if you fully extinguish the concept of gender boundaries due to personal preference, then what would stop someone from picking a gender identity one day and another gender the next (using day to represent an interval of time rather then strictly 24 hours) due to its a state of psychological and emotional mentality that does have the possibility of changing.
Furthermore, you discuss if people are happy with themselves and not hurting anyone why should we force them to be someone they are not; scientifically speaking they are what biology makes them; male and female suppose to reproduce with the opposite gender, whether they want to believe it or not, they are. Now luckily, our legal system isn't strictly based off of scientific standards, its also founded upon moral principles which typically are developed from society. Based off of statistics, we know that 78.4% of US Adult Citizens are Christians , which follow the Bible which specifically states that homosexuality is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22). Now based off of these two principles, it would be scientifically and morally wrong to provide equal legal rights.
