Gay Marriage: A Serious Family Issue

29 Aug

Gay Marriage

Gay marriages is a huge issue which many political figures debate and discuss whether couples of the same sex should be granted the license to get married. Many people stand on their principle that gay marriage is morally and ethically improper. On the other hand, there are also supporters who know about the idea of gay marriage and fight on making it acceptable in the law. Same-sex couples formed organizations to which they can freely state their insights and opinions on the issue as to make it considerable in the society.

Supporters of gay marriage have increased in number each year because they have concluded some beneficial factors that it provides. They believe that allowing same-sex marriage can introduce a firm foundation of marriage to the children. It betters their perspective by looking at heterosexuals starting to grow their relationships after seeing healthy homosexual relationships. Moreover, it also benefits the homosexuals because just like any other regular married couple, they are also provided with all the rights such as tax, inheritance and insurance benefits. Like any other ordinary heterosexuals, gays and lesbians are human beings. People’s rights do not differ based on whatever their sexual orientation is. Just like individuals with straight gender orientation, they claim that they should also be given equal rights for the fact that they are people who are just committed to love and relationship the different way of having the same biological gender. Those who desire to engage in same-sex marriage shall be allowed on this aspiration.

As much as lesbians and gays are so certain of the approval of same-sex marriage, there are also those who believe that gay marriage should not be allowed. There are organizations who hope to ban this movement because they firmly believe that marriage between same sex couples will harm the community around them. There are so many rules that anti-gay marriage movement want to justify like what was stated on Biblical inerrancy. There is a portion in the Bible which can be read at Leviticus 18:22, it prohibits homosexuality and God’s law must be obeyed. The Bible, which millions of people believe in, is not in favor of same-sex marriage. As a primary result of this, people choose to fight against gay marriage and try as much as possible to oppose and ban it in fear of committing a major sin against God. However, pro-gay marriage people stand for what they deem as right through sharing their huge opinion that there is a big difference between religious beliefs and civil rights. In turn, the American Civil Liberties Union, which is a highly acclaimed national organization that defends civil rights, guaranteed to United States citizens that state marriage laws are entirely separate from religious practices in the country. Additionally, they have stated that granting civil marriage to same-sex lovers has nothing to do with religious groups. Instead, it would impose equal rights just like any other ordinary citizens who are in a relationship.
