Allowing gay people to marry is the right thing to do | NMPolitics.net

There are two main arguments against gay marraige
1.God forbids homosexual marriage
2.Gay marraige will destroy the institution of family and thus the whole foundation of society will fall apart

Well issues with argument number one-
What happened to freedom of religion? The gay people who are wanting to get married are not evil, they simply want their rights. The constitution should protect those rights.

issues with argument number two-
This argument lacks scientific evidence. Children of homosexuals go out to be healthy members of society. One study has actually proven that children of lesbian couples have less behavior issues than children of straight couples.

Gay people deserve to have rights just as anyone else does.

The sponsors of California's gay marriage ban have renewed their effort to disqualify a federal judge because of his same-sex relationship -- the first time a jurist's sexual orientation has been cited as grounds for overturning a court decision.

Obama: New York's gay marriage vote 'a good thing'

Obama: New York's gay marriage vote 'a good thing' | Gay marriage | Scoop.it

"President Obama simply won't take a position on gay marriage, no matter how many times reporters ask him."

 However, despite constant efforts to get Obama to voicce his oppinion when sayingted "a profound recognition on the part of the American people" that gays "have got to be treated like every other American. I think that principle will win out." He goes on to say that he feels as though America is moving to a time of greater equality. Obama is also for a new program that would give benifits to the partners of those in the military. 

While he does seem to be trying to move in the right direction he does get backlash for not outright saying he is for gay rights. Would it be acceptable to leave it to the states to decide if interracial marriage should be allowed or if women could vote?

Sidebar: Gay Marriage’s Slow Stroll to the Supreme Court

Sidebar: Gay Marriage’s Slow Stroll to the Supreme Court | Gay marriage | Scoop.it

An appeals court decision striking down California’s ban on same-sex marriage has scrambled the legal strategies on both sides, especially about whether to seek Supreme Court review.

 

1. To follow up the California ban on same sex marriage, this article is on the intent of taking such a ban to the Supreme Court.

2. This ban was originally written for the state of California, but the writer would like to make it apply to all 50 states. “Mr. Olson and Mr. Boies had urged the appeals court to find that the federal Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry — a rationale that would apply in all 50 states.” Although 40 states will not allow same-sex marriage, this ban can only apply to California, and many still argue that the Constitution gives the right for same-sex couples to marry.
3. The writer’s opinion isn’t clear and is written in such a way so that the public can decide for themselves what side to take.

4. The writer does not state his opinion directly. He gives both sides of the story so that the reader can choose a side on his/her own using the facts from both ends.

6. I learn almost nothing about this columnist, as this article is solely geared to the debate of same-sex marriage.
7. This article was written for someone who enjoys dipping their feet into the controversial debate of same-sex marriage.
8. This writer didn’t sway my beliefs at all. I have always believed that marriage should be between a man and a woman and I will continue to do so. This is a topic that is very difficult to convince anyone to take your side just off of facts and personal accounts alone. Religious beliefs and upbringing also play a major role in this debate.

i agree with this person argument, people should be able to say and make there own thoughts and feelings about gay marriage  

Jazmyn Davis's curator insight, October 26, 2015 5:25 PM

 

This article is about gay marriage and the Supreme Court ban same sex of marriage in California. The writer applies it to all 50 states. In my opinion it shouldn't ,matter who people marry. It wouldn't be fair to gay marriages if only straight people can get married. I don;t have nothing against gay marriage because if they love each other like straight couples, they should have the right to get married. I think is basis, the Supreme Court is against gay marriages.
