People question whether same sex marriage should be legal and whether homosexual couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples. Many people in those states often protest the right to allow same sex marriage legal in those states. Same-sex couples who are not allowed to marry are deprived of these direct and indirect benefits of marriage.] ... Homosexuality-Gay Marriage When attempting to do research for this paper, I did a Google search for the precious internet sites that Drew doesn't want me to use. While I know I was supposed to do research and show different opinions, I"m going to "tweak" the assignment a bit; I"m going to argue against Bowden's anti-gay marriage argument and Christian propaganda. The main problem with his reasoning is that it makes you believe that two people who aren't of the same sex getting married would be the end of the world, which is foolish. Instead, he feels that same sex marriage is a threat to the heterosexual community.
Same sex marriages have become more acceptable, although many barriers still stand. Custody and access laws pertaining to same-sex partners and their children have brought forth a lot of homophobia. In the same paper it is said that, "as recently as 1997, the government of Alberta issued a blanket policy to the effect that gay men and lesbians no longer qualify as fit to foster children. I feel that every province should permit same-sex adoptions. Through this research I also read that the "family class" should be extended in the Immigration Regulations to permit lesbians and g... In my cultural aspect research paper I would like to introduce the two main cultures under study. During my research I will be comparing both of these cultures and focusing on marriage as my aspect under study. I found in my research that trekking is an extended camping trip lasting anywhere form a couple of weeks to a couple of months. After marriage has been affective, the couple's life changes forever. By analyzing my research I have found that two different cultures from two distinct parts of the world have one thing in common. First, his reason against same sex marriage is that homosexual marriages are short lived. The second reason he states that homosexual marriage results high-risk behavior and unsafe sex.
Explained in Random History, the early civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt's cultures saw attraction between a man and another man normal and "The main considerations in same-sex relationships in early history were often love, beauty, and excellence of character rather than gender." Same sex marriage back then, was equal right and was not gay privilege.
Privilege would "[have been] something like gay people not paying taxes, like churches [didn't]." (Ricky Gervais) It was not until when Christianity began to rise and its negative attitude towards same-sex marriage was introduced.
The rights and freedoms of expression is promised according to the United States Constitution.
In the document itself, the preamble suggest that Americans should "promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity"(Philadelphia Convention), but gay and lesbian people are discriminated against their own personal beliefs.
Yet same-sex marriage remains banned in many countries, and the expansion of broader lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights has been uneven globally. Javier Corrales, a professor at Amherst College who focuses on LGBT rights in Latin America, points to income levels and the influence of religion in politics, as well as the overall strength of democracy, to explain regional divergences [PDF].
International organizations, including the United Nations, have issued resolutions in support of LGBT rights, but human rights groups say these organizations have limited power to enforce these newly recognized rights. While same-sex marriage has made the most gains in Western democracies, antidiscrimination laws are gaining traction worldwide.
This statement in the Constitution dictates an aura causing Americans to not fully "promote the general welfare".
As each person has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, the right to marry whomever a person chooses is of his or her own concern and not of the legal recognition of the government.
