  • Generation After Same Sex Marriage
    1,550 words
    Marriage under Fire We must remember what marriage is for and why God has given it the design he did. Marriage is to be between a man and a woman. This goes back to the beginning of time and why God created woman in the first place; "to provide a helpful mate for Adam; it was not good that man should be alone" (Genesis 1: 18, 20-23). So we see that marriage was God's idea, not men. Knowing this, why in the world would we as Americans give that right to homosexual couples? Marriage is a blessing ...

    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...
  • Arguments Against Homosexual Marriage
    800 words
    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.

These couples pay taxes, just as heterosexual couples do...

  • Heterosexual Couple Different From A Homosexual Couple
    432 words
    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 thi...
  • Homosexual Couple
    547 words
    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 ...
  • Same Sex Marriage
    467 words
    I agree with the author's article about how the increased tolerance of homosexuality is related to the weakening of marriage for a number of reasons. Courtship and dating has definitely become a thing of the past. In recent years "hooking up" and having sex with random women or men has become a very regular occurrence and is teaching some real bad lessons about love and marriage, and what real commitment is. Men these days go by the saying "why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free", w...
  • Gay Marriage Advocates

    If gay marriages are O.K., then what about polygamy? Or incest? The House of Representatives may have passed legislation last week opposing gay marriage, but the people will soon be trumped by the courts. In September the judges of the Hawaii Supreme Court are expected to legalize gay marriage. Once done there, gay marriage– like quickie Nevada divorces– will have to be recognized "under the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution' throughout the rest of the U.S. Gay marriag...

  • Homosexual Marriage
    571 words
    Being Gay is More than Okay The written piece of Dennis O'Brien, "Against Gay Marriage – I: What Heterosexuality Means,' discusses the idea that we must first look at the societal definition of marriage before we can pose judgements on homosexual marriages. 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. ...
