Dont Haze Gays


This year in government we have taken many current events and discussed them in debates and blogs. Gay rights and marriage has become a widely debated topic. I believe that my second reflection should be about this very important and opinioned topic. Recently people have been discussing gay rights and whether it is right or not. It is a completely opinionated question that I think could be resolved very easily.

Let gays get married. Nowhere in the constitution says that gay marriage is wrong. Recently President Obama gave his opinion on gay marriage in response to North Carolina banning it. He said “treat people the way you want to be treated,” saying that he is pro- gay marriage. Technically Obama cant make laws about gay marriage because people have voted on it. I believe the issue should go to the Supreme Court because the Supreme Court always does what is right rather than what is popular. Personally I believe that the court would vote for gay marriage because they did that for California.

Many people are now saying that homosexuality is a genetic condition that cannot be controlled. If that is the case then homosexual people should have the right to marry. America was founded on freedom, and it is unjust to disallow gays to get married. That is why it is essential for our country to reconsider gay marriages and legalize them. It is a right that has been taken away from them and it is unfair.

    Here’s a GREAT example of where precise use of language is so important – I can tell from the broader context of your post that you support gay marriage and think the Supreme Court should do what’s right regarding equal protection of the laws for all Americans – gay and straight… however… when you call homosexuality a “genetic condition that cannot be controlled” you might not be writing what you actually mean to say: being gay is not a disease, right??
