Same Sex Marriage Savvy? ;)

In Government class we have learned about different units of study such as Elections, Congress, the Presidency, and the Courts. In my reflection I’m going to tell you what I think about North Carolina’s ban on same-sex marriage sparks cheers, jeers and how it connects to the congress. North Carolina voters want to change the state’s constitution, According to CNN North Carolina voted Tuesday to outlaw same-sex marriage, which was already prohibited in the state. Supporters pushed for the constitutional amendment, arguing that it is needed to ward off future legal challenges. Amendment one would make marriage between one man and one woman the only recognized legal union in the state, as well as it should be. From my experiences working with the constitution I’ve come to realize that us, as a nation should use it as a foundation to run our nation. The controversy going on in North Carolina could have been avoided if the people of NC would just abide by the constitutional rights. Is even stated in the bible that only man and women shall be together.

Yet one can argue that North Carolina banning same sex marriage is going against the 14th Amendment which says “ No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United Sates; nor shall any Sate deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”. Me personally? I really don’t know what I think about this certain situation regarding same sex marriage. If one is happy with the same sex why deny that happiness from them? But at the same time it goes against the constitution. Therefore, you can argue both sides in this scenario.

To conclude, I feel that if someone were to get married to one of the same sex that could be okay as long theyre happy. I don’t think anyone should be discriminated against, just because who theyre happy with, essentially we all want to be happy with the significant other. 😉
