The Pros And Cons Of Same Sex Marriage
It is apparent that Baehr v. Lewin may pave the way for same-sex marriages in Hawaii, but DoMA prevents other states from being forced to recognize their laws. That is why it is important that we in Texas repeal our sodomy law, and legally recognize same-sex marriage, making it possible for gays to be able to enjoy the full benefits of the life-long commitment of love. Hopefully, the generations of the future will be able to look back at gay discrimination as current society looks back at the ridiculousness of sex and race-based discrimination.
