Equality among a Nation?

In today’s government system the biggest factors of debate happen to be the current events, the issues that are happening now. The controversial event that happened this week was the interview in which Vice President Biden spoke about his support for Gay marriage and equal rights. This wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t for the fact that President Obama has not yet sided for or against gay marriage rights. The biggest problem with the situation that the press is keying on is Obama’s credibility. If in fact President Obama does decide to support Gay marriage it would look like he is doing it merely for support. I might add he already has support from the homosexual communities which constantly raise money and support of the Obama administration. Now there is two different views you can take as far which side is right or wrong in this case of homosexual marriage and rights. One side has to do with equality of people, and the pursuit of happiness. For example a controversial case in the 1950’s involving an inter-racial couple. Loving v. Virginia is a case of pure discrimination, in which a man and a women simply pursuing happiness challenge the social status and barrier in order to reach it.” At the October Term, 1958, of the Circuit Court of Caroline County, a grand jury issued an indictment charging the Lovings with violating Virginia’s ban on interracial marriages. On January 6, 1959, the Lovings pleaded guilty to the charge and were sentenced to one year in jail; however, the trial judge suspended the sentence for a period of 25 years on the condition that the Lovings leave the State and not return to Virginia together for 25 years.”

           

You could take with this is a religious stand, in which the Christian bible says that a two people of the same gender shall not be together. The reason this is relevant is only because we are in a country where the dominant religion is that of Christianity. Regardless of that there is really no way to dispute that this case is constitutionally appropriate.
