    In our society, these types of relationships are not acceptable, and even illegal in some states. This branches off of the idea that our nation is accepting, and even promoting, sin against God. There is no reason to believe that the acceptance of gay marriage will lead to the acceptance of other nontraditional relationships. In gay marriage, both people are normally consenting to the relationship. When it comes to bestiality, pedophilia, and incest, there is normally or always no consent.…

    W. K. Clifford states in his essay The Ethics of Belief that it is immoral to hold beliefs that are based on insufficient evidence. He suggests that to hold such a belief is harmful to oneself as well as others. Not only is it immoral to form a belief on insufficient reason, but it is also immoral to keep a belief while ignoring doubts or avoiding an honest perspective on the belief. Clifford uses two stories as examples of instances where people immorally kept a belief and the outcome benefitted them while hurting those around them. The central idea of Clifford’s essay is that a belief is not morally correct because of the issue of right or wrong but rather if the belief had been founded on proper grounds or if it was entertained on improper…

    People who are homosexual were deprived of the same rights that heterosexual people had. Some believed that same sex couples shouldn’t have the same rights as opposite sex couples because many do not sanction this as a real relationship.

By not allowing same sex couples their right to marry showed that the government agreed with individuals that homosexuality is morally wrong.…

    From a moral aspect, it is considered wrong to kill another. In other words “…just so long as a fetus is a person (or counts morally), it would be morally wrong to abort it” (11). One’s behavior and choice affect the morality of their actions. Where one has decided to have consensual sexual intercourse without protection and then decides to abort their pregnancy, shows signs that both partners acted recklessly in their actions. In such cases, abortion should not be permissible because of their irresponsible behaviors and knowing they had the choice to protect themselves against unwanted pregnancy.…

    In the essay “The History of Gay Rights” by Minh Nguyen, he elaborates on why religion is constantly brought up when in regards to same­sex marriage. He states: They [gay and lesbians] are considered extremely “immoral” because they do not follow social customs, “unnatural” because homosexuality violates the basic functions of genitals and contradicts the nature. Religious Leaders reason that Jesus asks the mankind in the Bible “to go out and have children.” Since homosexuals are not able to reproduce children, homosexuality is, therefore, from their perspective an act of sin. (Nguyen, n.pag.) The religious leaders need to understand that not everybody believes in the same God they do, therefore making the gay individuals exempt from their accusations of sin.…
