Gay Marriage Right or Wrong?
By Nicholas Carter
During the election this year Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Utah passed a constitutional ban on gay marriages. They denied the rights of citizens of their country to marry someone they love. If President Bush allows this in the Constitution, he will be known as the first president to put an amendment against a minority group in the constitution. The Constitution is supposed to help America not discriminate people because they love the same sex. There is separation with church and state.
Many people don’t know the real facts about homosexuality. Most think it’s a choice people make. Truth is, is that it isn’t. No one would choose to be made fun of, hated, bashed etc. Scientist have proven there to be a gay gene that you are born with. A cause is genetic and another involves the oversensitivity of the maternal immune system to some aspect of the male fetus. It was found that researchers of the University of Padua discovered that women tend to have more children when they inherit the genetic factors linked to homosexuality gene found in men. This boost of fertility more than counters the missing offspring fathered by gay men and keeps this gay gene in circulation. The Researchers then question over 198 men. 98 of them were gay and 100 were straight. They questioned them about their closest relatives and found out that the female relatives of gay men they had, had more children than the average relatives of straight men.
There has also been found homosexuality in animals. Biologist Dr Geoff MacFarlane of the University of Newcastle said that there are types of animals where there is one male and a numerous amount of females or one female and numerous amounts of males living together where they have multiple spouses. It is actually the majority of the animal kingdom. Homosexuality between animals is only one of their sexual behaviors. Birds, reptiles, and mammals all do it, its world wide among 450 species of animals and in many it’s very frequent. But the most same-sex behavior is mammals. Primates for example engage in complex homosexual relations forming long-term bonds.
Most people that are against the homosexuality and same sex marriage say it is against the bible but most things in the bible are wrong. If homosexuality is against god stated in Leviticus 18:22 that states it to be an abomination then we must listen to everything else the bible says right? Then we may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations it says we can in Leviticus 25:44. In Exodus 21:7 I can sell my daughter into slavery, we should allow no contact with any woman while she is in her period of menstrual un-cleanness - Lev.15:19-24, In Lev. 11:6-8 it states touching the skin of a dead pig makes us unclean, but then how will anyone play football? In Lev.19:27. Men should not get their hair trimmed but I see many that do? What they are doing is forbidden in the bible and should be condemned for doing so. Lev.21:20 state that we may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. What about the people that wear glasses and contacts. If they do not have 20/20 vision will they burn? Lev.11:10 states that eating shellfish is an abomination, is it a less or greater abomination than homosexuality? In Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, a woman wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). Also to curse a lot. It is says that we must get the whole town together and stone them like in Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
The majority of this school said that they should get married because who are we to tell them not to marry someone they love. We have freedom of rights but it’s not really freedom when you not allowed to do certain things like this. Gay Marriage does not affect anyone but the people that are getting married. Only they should have say on what should happen to them. It’s really none of our business to deny them the right to marry. A reason they deny them this right is because of not having any offspring of their own. But they can adopt a child. Many heterosexual couples cannot have children of their own but they aren’t discriminated because of it. They say a child can not grow up in a home with same sex parents when they have proven they can on PBS specials and other documentaries. The parents are not corrupting the children to be gay. This country of ours is not made up of one single religion. We have multiple religions and shouldn’t just see as marriage as a religious ceremony but as a real ceremony of expressing your love with one another.
