Throughout history, Marriage has been considered to be between a man and a women for the purpose of procreation. It states in the bible in Mark 10:6-9 In the original creation, God made male and female to be together. Because of this, a man leaves father and mother, and in marriage he becomes one flesh with a woman - no longer two individuals, but forming a new unity. Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart."
The bible because of the creation of its time was meant for Gods followers men and women to reproduce in order to help with farming purposes but also to upheld the family legacy. In 2014, though many strives were made for equality “rights & respect”, society still has many ways to go in order for complete equality including marriage, security and benefits. I personally do no have an issue nor negative thoughts regarding gay marriage and in fact many of my friends and family members support gay marriage. On the other hand I have gay friends and family members that do not want to get married but want to option to be there instead of government officials deciding their future. Social injustice and civil rights of the LGBTQ population has and continues to be an issue because their treated as second class citizens because of their sexual preference “which is not a choice” contrary to peoples beliefs. Gay couples were given the right to marry in Pennsylvania on May 20th ,2014 and although that was a major accomplishment the United States still needs to correct their policies regarding LGBTQ adoption, rights and donating of blood to those in desperate need.
With that said, How do you guys feel about gay marriage?
