Gay Marriage

By pitanavarro Jan 23, 2014 441 Words
It's not a choice to be gay. You don't chose who you love, you just do. Using the Bible as a reason to be against same sex marriage is complete non-sense. God created everyone equal. Even Pope Francis called for the integration of gays into society, remarking that even as leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, he has no right to “judge” gay people. The leaders of 313.9 million Americans must realize, as the Pope did, that they must stop judging gay people and denying their given rights. Why is it fair to treat others wrong because of something they don't have any choice over. I never chose to be straight. Why would a gay person choose to have all that hate, discrimination, bullying, and humiliation in their life? It's a psychological thing. Psychologically, men and women are hard wired to have sex with each other, but at the same time, since we all are different, some people grow up being attracted to the same sex. It was the same with slavery, now 120 years later we realize how horribly wrong we were and I hope it will be like that for homosexuals too. Sam-sex marriage is “some have said, the last major civil rights milestone yet to be surpassed in our two-century struggle to attain the goals we set for this nation at its formation” (RA 76). There are so many reasons why gay marriage should be legalized as Olson stated, one of which being child adoption. The argument that “traditional marriage furthers the state’s interest in procreation” is unreasonable because our orphanages aren't full, but we want them to be as empty as possible. Gay couples biologically can't have children on their own. However, many gay couples that want children would revert to adopting. That means that a lot more of orphans would be given loving parents, a better home, and a proper education. As Olson states in his article “Why Same-sex Marriage is an American Value,” the United State of America was founded on the belief that everyone was created equal, endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The right to get married is included. Therefore, to deny the right for same-sex couples to marry is denying their constitutional right to marry which is unconstitutional. What would the founding fathers think of our nation being so divided over same-sex marriage, devastating the lives of those who are simply attracted to the same sex. In order to become the true United States of America, to be a nation with no frontiers and equality for all, we must embrace same-sex marriage.
