    INTRODUCTION The Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination of an individual on the basis of their race, sex, religion, or national origin fails to provide federal protection to individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation. The fact that this landmark federal policy does not include civil rights protection for homosexuals has put them at a disadvantage legally and socially. Although social attitudes towards homosexuality are slowly progressing, erroneous myths and bias attit...

    Note: This essay contains opinions NOT shared by the host of this web site. In this age of liberation and relative morality it is no surprise that homosexuals have tried very hard to gain ground in the way of civil rights. Homosexuals say they want equal rights, and they want homosexual-marriages to be legalized. However, what they are asking for is not reasonable. They are humans; and therefore they already have the same rights as every other human living in America. What homosexuals want are s...

    Bigotry and discrimination are two things that should not be legally permitted in modern society, yet there are laws that permit, if not encourage discrimination against homosexual people. One of these laws is the inability for homosexual couples to be legally married. The simple truth is that homosexuals are religiously married everyday, but they are not entitled to the legal benefits of marriage such as tax breaks and legal inheritances. These couples pay taxes, just as heterosexual couples do...

    I think that homosexual couples should be able to get married and have the state recognize it. Why should only Vermont legalize this? Is this fair to the homosexual people of the United States? What makes a heterosexual couple different from a homosexual couple? Marriage is about showing how much love you have for another person and how committed you are to that person. So why shouldn't it be ok for two guys or two girls to show yes we are in love and we will be together forever? Think about...

    Allowing homosexuals to marry would further de-moralize our nation. Our society as a whole is headed in the wrong direction, that needs to be changed, and accepting a union between a homosexual couple would only perpetuate our society's problems. Proof of this can be seen in the attached Gallup Poll, which surveyed Americans to find out what Americans really think-a marriage is between a man and a woman-no one else. The main purpose of marriage is to be able to procreate-that is why God created ...

    Should same sex marriages be allowed? I feel that the ban on same sex marriages is unconstitutional. Now I am not saying that our government should interfere with what the Church's standings are and force them to accept this. But why is it when two Atheist people get "married" by a judge, it is considered a marriage. I thought that Atheist didn't believe in God at all. Being homosexual is not a Religion so I am assuming that most of them do believe in God. I feel that they should have the same ...

    Homosexuality in our society today has become more openly widespread than ever, yet many still view it as something new and strange. Shakespeare wrote of cross-dressing in the Twelfth Night and the famous poet Walt Whitman was a homosexual. So, why does society put an emphasis on homosexuality as being "dirty" or "evil"? Two men or two women should be allowed to join in matrimony and adopt children in more than two states. Racism and prejudice are synonymous words yet, one would think that t...

O'Brien then continues on to denounce same-sex marriages, claiming they are not accepted into religion and in the values of Americans. Our society needs to accept all marriages and support the couple who is lucky enough to find a mate. ...
