So many people say that it is bad because of the Bible. I'm sorry, but not everyone is Christian. Saying that all people should be against homosexuality because of what the Bible says is basically denying our rights as USA citizens to believe what we want. Besides that, I believe many people would love to adopt a child but have too many children, have children that need too much attention, etc. However, a couple in a homosexual relationship may be more likely to be able to adopt children and give them a home.
Additionally, I have heard many people argue that homosexuality is unnatural. Well, think about your husband or wife. Did you choose to love them, or did it just happen? Did someone force you? Probably not. Therefore, this is a natural feeling. Why is homosexual marriage any different? You don't have to agree with them; you should just accept them as a person. I rest my case.
The acceptance of LGBT in our country is not just a proof that they are just accepted in our society, but it also means the usefulness of the LGBT or Homosexual groups in our country and even more in our economy. Furthermore the practicality of the homosexual groups has a big impact on our economy and even in other country. In fact, some of the countries are legalizing the same-sex marriage, The Netherlands, Canada, Spain, Norway, Argentina, Brazil, England and other countries are just a few of the countries that legalizing marriage to homosexuality groups. As they believe that Homosexual is a not evil act from them.
These counties believe that It would boost tax revenues - A report from the National Tax Journal confirms a possible tax revenue increase between $20 million and $40 million a year from homosexual groups and same-sex marriages are legalized. Effects on Revenues Recognizing homosexual couples would affect federal revenues through both the individual income tax and the estate tax. Neither effect would be large relative to total federal revenues. Receipts from other taxes—in particular, payroll taxes— would be unlikely to change significantly.
Second, It helped our economy: according to CNNMoney, Since gay marriage was legalized in New York state marriage license fees, local celebrations and wedding-related purchases have boosted New York City's economy by $259 million.
Third, It will cut spending on government safety net programs: Marriage makes people more financially stable and less likely to qualify for government assistance, Bloomberg reports. Therefore, homosexual marriage would save the government hundreds of millions per year in welfare funding.
Fourth, Adoption is good - A big instances that some of the homosexual couples are going to adopt and raised a child.
It means that children who are adopted grow up in a family that will love and selflessly chose for them. It also gives the opportunities and resources that the child needs and more attention from a parent.
In conclusion, it is not evil to be a Homosexual.
Although the people that say that it is bad for society, they have no solid evidence to prove exactly why it will be bad for the society.
They believe that without a mother and a father, the child will not gain the feminine and masculine traits that they need. With that, it must mean that single parents should not be allowed to raise a child either, they will not gain both feminine and masculine traits.
Homosexual couples cannot produce offspring from their sexual activities. That must mean that if there is an infertile couple, they will not be allowed to get married because they cannot produce a child. How about the many children that are refused from straight couples all the time that homosexual couples adopt? Who's the real bad guy here?
My personal favorite, the Bible condemns homosexuality. Who exactly says that the Bible is 100% correct in the first place? Many Christians decide to pick and choose different parts of the bible that they decide to obey. How about not eating shellfish or not shaving their beards? You cannot wear clothing made out of the same materials. I do not see any controversy about those specific topics, why exactly is homosexuality made such a big deal? Something very important about this topic is also the fact that the Bible cannot be considered a credible resource, whether it is God's word or not. Who knows, the Bible was created a very long time ago and it is possible that the creators of it decided to add their own personal opinion to it as well. No one knows for sure if the Bible is a credible source of information or not. May I also mention that the Bible is not the only "Holy Book"? There is more than one religion and it doesn't mean that the Bible is the only true and credible(or uncredible) source considering that there are many other "Holy Books" that people seem to forget about. It seems that many of the people that do not support homosexuality quote the Bible, although it has never and will never be proven to be true or not.
As human beings we are not allowed to take the position of GOD and judge others. However, homosexual can help the society keep the street and foster home clean of abandoned children by taking custody of them, they contribute to the society by paying tax and not not utilizing welfarism
I can't understand, how people think this is bad, is just love.
The homosexuality in the society helps. Helps at tolerance, helps at respect, and all the children can see how love, is just love, no matter the gender
So we don't have to be homophobic, It's, time.
NO MORE HOMOPHOBIC
There are many, many arguments against homosexuality on the grounds that it defies God. However, there is a separation between church and state. A law cannot be passed that supports one religion's ideologies at the expense of other people (homosexuals). Onto my next point: People should have the legal right to marry whoever they want (as long as the other person is of age and willing), because the Constitution says that all people are created equal. Why should some people be given the right to marry and others not? That is unconstitutional. Even though I am heterosexual myself, I wholeheartedly support gay marriage.
People should be able to do what they want and plus it good for the economy. Gay marriages can bring financial gain to state and local governments. Revenue from gay marriage comes from marriage licenses, higher income taxes (the so-called "marriage penalty"), and decreases in costs for state benefit programs. The Comptroller for New York City found that legalizing gay marriage would bring $142 million to the city’s economy and $184 million to the state’s economy over three years. There will also be pros for traditional couples. If they let gays marry, there will be more adoptions. Therefore, there will be more kids in good environments and the better the environment the happier the kids the happier the kid the happier the parents. Marriage provides both physical and psychological health benefits, and banning gay marriage increases rates of psychological disorders.
If a person that has same sex attraction marries someone of the opposite sex, will that person be happy? Will they make their spouse happy by devoting unconditional love? Since attraction is very important in a marriage how can that marriage last as sex will diminish over time?
Things to consider.
Because homosexuals can't procreate naturally most would opt for adoption If homosexuals were allowed to adopt then there would be less unwanted children on the street so rather then adding to the already ludicrous amount of people on this planet they would be caring for someone who's parents didn't want to or couldn't afford to. If they were aloud to purchase marriage licenses the government would have an increased revenue which would hopefully improve things for EVERYONE not saying it would decrease taxes but there could be more stability in the overall budget, plus some would like to have lavish ceremonies so that's more even money going to your town that you don't usually see because they can't celebrate their weddings and have to hide their love. Places that legalize it would see gay couples travelling to that area to celebrate their love so it's good for tourism. The longer it becomes acceptable the less children will feel the need to hide who they are and the stress that comes with pretending to be who you're not so suicides relating to that would gradually decrease. Of course parents would need to take the initiative to teach their child that being gay isn't a choice and teach acceptance rather then prejudice to further help with that.
While I understand what everyone here is saying, and do agree that homosexuality is beneficial to society, I can't help but feel people are misreading the question. People are answering as though the question was "Is homosexual acceptance good for society?". This does not mean they're wrong, it just means they're answering the wrong question.
As for the question at hand: Yes. Homosexuality actually does provide a solid benefit to society. There are over 7 billion people living on Planet Earth right now. 7 BILLION. Food in many countries can be scarce, over-crowding is a serious problem in more developed areas, and wars have more catastrophic effects. The more homosexuals there are on the planet, the less babies are being born, world population will start dying down.
The bible clearly informs us that in the end times people will try to twist Gods words. (Read Matthew 24:1-30) check these versus out, it lines up with what is happening today! Every sport you excel at at every friend you make demonstrates the grace of God. No one has proved that any chromosome or cell determines that you are a homosexual. No one has proved it! Humans were created in Gods image. Do you think God has a homosexual cell within himself... NO! God did not create two men in the beginning, he created Adam and Eve. 75% of homosexuals end up with AIDS or some kind of sexually transmitted disease!
I do not hate gays but as a heterosexual man I can see no grounds behind it or its benefits whereas I can see obvious problems it causes. Governments spend so much time debating issues such as gay rights instead of real issues that matter. The fact that gay marriage was even an issue in the last election appalls me. I can see no validity as to the benefits of homosexuality but I can see the obvious con of it slowing down our government and preventing it from working on issues that actually matter.
God clearly says in the Bible that homosexuality is a sin. Therefore, homosexuality is bad for society. There are all these atheists arguing that homosexuality is okay because is it simply a difference that society should get used to. It is not merely a difference, it is a sin. End of discussion.
By definition, love is looking out for another person's best interest. God loves everyone and so should we. Love does not necessarily mean that we like a person's choices. Gay 'marriage' is not right because marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman. The love between a man and a woman is so great that it overflows into a third human being, that is a child. A homosexual couple can naturally make a child. Even though homosexuality is wrong, people should not discriminate against gays. Everyone deserves love and respect.
Not in favour of the natural law. A natural law is being crushed here I don't have time for this but I can give u a reference to read ----- THE HOLY BIBLE read mark 10;6-7 THEN YOU WILL cease waste your time ..... .... ... .. .. .. Cul.
If this homosexuality is natural...Why is this much opposition for all over the world? I think this is because it is unnatural but learned through experience when human being became self-centered. The intention of SEX is not only to get pleasure rather it is GOD'S plan to create human being. But this bad habit is opposing GOD'S way of doing things, which may end as "SODOMIAN.....May GOD'S give mercy for those of you supporting & doing this...God Bless The World!!
The practice of homosexuality leads to an increase in the incidence of disease and damage to the body. When looked at from the medical perspective, homosexuality is a very unhealthy lifestyle choice.
From the moral perspective, homosexuality is one form of sexual deviancy that is just as reprehensible as bestiality and necrophilia. If it is not beneficial to allow those deviant sexual relations, then homosexuality should similarly be shunned.
Homosexuality simply has no benefits. They will still add to population bcause most homosexuals like to use surrogate mothers. It denies the child either a father and a mother a dn it actually rises the number of people contracted aids. Government thinks looking for aids cure is imprtant but we could find much better goals. Aids takes out the sexually immoral people. They have to thank themselves that they contracted aids. If homosexuality is so natural then why do they have to use condoms poppers and lube and all kids of stuff just to make their sex safe? Its because it goes against nature.
It is just one more form of entertainment that has a dark side. In the name of freedom we must have it. After all if it make me feel good and it doesn't hurt you directly, I should be able to do it. Even if it means I have 10 times more sex partners that the average heterosexual. The Roman Empire lasted for more that a thousand years. We are much more enlightened and we can destroy ourselves much quicker. To have a sustainable society we must not become self-centered. I am not the universe. There are things that are more important than me. Ask your dad what they are.
Form a secualr point of view homosexuals are free to do what ever they please. This america, a free country where we don't have to care what everyone thinks or does. From a Christianity point of view, homosexuality isn't necessarily wrong, but engaging in homosexual acts are sins and are not encouraged by the Catholic church. This means that you can love each other but can not engage in the acts that go with it.
