Homosexuality as Infertility: How to End the Marriage Debate

Homosexuality as Infertility: How to End the Marriage Debate | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

Will the gay marriage debate ever end? I’m not just talking about the political or legal fight. I’m talking about the culture war. Supporters of same-sex marriage liken it to interracial marriage, an idea that once seemed bizarre to most Americans but is now almost universally accepted. Opponents of gay marriage liken it to abortion, which continues to divide and inflame the country. Which way will this battle go?

 

Until now, I thought it would rage on. Same-sex marriage is far more radical than interracial marriage. It challenges our basic understanding of the institution. You can’t expect people to accept such a change overnight.

 

But now I see a way out. Tuesday’s Supreme Court hearing on Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California, has exposed the exit route. People who oppose gay marriage can come to accept it as moral, once they understand homosexuality as a kind of infertility.

A new play about "Proposition 8" hits the stage in KC | KCLive.tv | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

Proposition 8, which bans gay marriage in California, is awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court. That Supreme Court trial inspired a new play that is based on that actual transcript from the courtroom. Cities across the country are staging readings of this new play, and All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church brought the play to Kansas City.

LISTEN: Audio of the Supreme Court's oral arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act

LISTEN: Audio of the Supreme Court's oral arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

The Supreme Court has released an audio recording and transcript of the oral arguments in the case over the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, the federal law that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman.

 

It's the second of two landmark cases regarding marriage equality that have come before the court this week. Yesterday, the justices argued the constitutional merits of Proposition 8, a California referendum that banned same-sex marriage.

 

According to initial accounts, a majority of justices on Wednesday expressed strong skepticism about DOMA's constitutionality.

New study finds homosexual marriage has no effect on heterosexual marriage

New study finds homosexual marriage has no effect on heterosexual marriage | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

:: For years now, proponents of marriage equality have argued that legalizing same-sex marriage would have an effect on heterosexual marriages in a variety of ways spanning from disrespecting hetero marriages to the outright destruction of the institution of marriage, itself. Many religious leaders have even gone so far as to say it will bring about the apocalypse. Dogs and cats, living together. Mass hysteria. According to a story published by The Raw Story, a new study has been released on 11 June 2013, published in the Public Library of Congress that supports what most thinking people already know, but now have the evidence to support. ::

Will changing your Facebook profile picture do anything for marriage equality?

Will changing your Facebook profile picture do anything for marriage equality? | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

As SCOTUS debates the constitutionality of Proposition 8 and DOMA this week, Facebook users all over the nation have become part of aburgeoning social media trend. Supporters of marriage equality have been changing their profile pictures to the icon on the left, a version of the Human Rights Campaign logo designed specifically to indicate support for same-sex marriage rights.

 

Although many people have said that it’s been personally meaningful to sign onto Facebook and see a screen full of red avatars, many have criticized the trend for being a silly way of “showing support” without actually accomplishing anything significant. However, although the SCOTUS justices might not be checking Facebook to tally up the red avatars before rendering a decision, a demonstration of solidarity like this one really could end up making an impact.

Biblical Scholars: Actually, ‘Traditional Marriage’ Isn’t Just One Man and One Woman

Biblical Scholars: Actually, ‘Traditional Marriage’ Isn’t Just One Man and One Woman | Raising the flag for same sex marriage rights | Scoop.it

:: Opponents of marriage equality frequently use so-called evidence from the Bible to argue that same-sex marriage is “unnatural,” “immoral,” or any number of harmful (and incorrect) adjectives. But a group of Biblical scholars have come forward to say that, despite what some misguided conservatives think, the religious text doesn’t prove anything about the definition of marriage. "We wish to clarify that the biblical texts do not support the frequent claim that marriage between one man and one woman is the only type of marriage deemed acceptable by the Bible’s authors." ::
