In past years, those of different races were not allowed to marry. Now we understand that thinking to be wrong and biased. In the same way, we should allow and even encourage those of the same sex who want to make a commitment to marry each other and celebrate their partnership.
I believe that it is wrong to be gay, according to the
teachings of the bible. Even the
teachings of the Koran are against the practice of homosexuality. Still, I think that in American society, same
sex should be legal. Maybe in a Muslim
country it would have to be illegal, but America is supposed to have separation
of church and state.
Same-sex marriage is a marriage. If a man and woman can be married and have the benefit of privileges from the State and Federal government, then same-sex couples must be eligible for the same benefit.
Due to the First Amendment of the Constitution, religious definitions cannot be held as the standard by government.
So, either all types of consenting adult couples can enjoy marriages or none can.
I am late for this, but before i begin, i want to point out, that i have gay friends, there wonderful people. But when it comes to marriage...I severely disagree. For one, let me ask you all a question...What would happen if right now everyone turned gay till they died. Give it 150 years and there would be no such things as humans...Last i checked, you need one sperm and one egg to make a child....
