Here is my final project about homosexual relationship and same sex marriage in USA religions. People often talk about this topic and it is always focused on people who are heterosexual. Until 2015, there are 36 out of 50 states allowed to gay marriage is legal and rest of states still with constitutional bans on gay marriage.
Many religious supporting same sex marriage. The most supportive major religious groups are Buddhists (84 percent), Jews (77 percent), and Americans who select “Other religion” (75 percent) additionally more than three quarters (77 percent) of religiously unaffiliated also support same-sex marriage.
It is not that too much surprising for one reason. First, in Buddhism history has very few times to say about marriage as an institution, usually regarding it as a state matter. Buddhism’s long history is one of fair degree of acceptance to every people. In terms of acceptance, I can take a case from the Vinaya, purportedly recalling events from the Buddha’s life:
In the Vinaya, there is reference to a monk in whom the sexual characteristics of a woman appeared, and a nun in whom the sexual characteristics of a man appeared. In both cases, the Buddha appears to accept this and simply say that the ex-monk nun should follow the rules of the nuns, and the ex-nun monk should follow the rules of the monks.
On the other hand, lot of people disagree of marriage between same sex people. Many of people think they know that marriage is about: love, fidelity and the forming of stable families to raise children. This week oral arguments scheduled on a group of Supreme Court cases that will determine the legality of same-sex marriage nationwide. Gay couples and people saying “that marriage is all about love and commitment.” That is true, love’s next step to start marriage between couples to become one family. All happy families have children. Even gay families want to adopt children unless they cannot born child. But people also disagree with adopting child by gay family. In my opinion, I have two different idea of comment to say in if gay family adopt child.
First, even it is not your biological child gay parents should have vision of their future life after they adopt child. One day, child will be grown up and that time he/she will bullied by other people who are friends or surrounding people of he/she. Moreover, child should have to deserve father and mother’s love. They need to know and feel about how real mother takin care their child and how real father teach their son or daughter. So I’m kind disagree with gays-marriage by this mind.
On the other hand, this is idea is following gay marriage. Why? There are lot of orphan child in all around world. Parents didn’t want their children or their parents died and so on. So what is this idea about is gay parents can give love to children who needs take care and love by others just instead of their parents. All religions included their teaching about love each other, take care, protect and so many things. That is why Buddhism, Jews and other religions supporting gay marriage percent is high.
I may also be mistaken in my analysis, moral reasoning and intuitions, or understanding of the law. People who are supporting gay’s marriage should work to educate each other, and be open to hearing from others with whom they disagree—especially when gay people don’t understand how anyone could disagree.
Given how homosexual people have been historically treated, both in the United States and elsewhere, it is no wonder that gay-rights groups are especially attuned to any perceived infringement. And with rapidly changing views on gay marriage, the gay rights movement finally feels like it has the wind at its back. But those of supporter who support gay rights should be careful with their rhetoric speech and with the battles they choose. Not everyone disagree with is homophobic, and not every law proposed by opponents of gay marriage will damage the cause of gay rights.
Pushing for gay rights will be easier if religious objectors can be secure in the knowledge that the state will not be used to compel them to violate their religious beliefs. This does not mean gay persons should be discriminated against, but it does mean supporter should provide the space for people to not participate in religiously objectionable acts. As a tolerant and pluralistic society, it is incumbent upon us to provide this option, even if we strongly disagree with the moral stance of religious objectors.
The principle of charity demands that people who supporter gay-marriage consider the best the other side has to offer and assume they are operating in good faith.
This should apply to all political debates, but particularly to those contentious moral questions—gay marriage, abortion, the death penalty, euthanasia, and all the intersecting issues around race and gender. If supporter wish to change others’ minds, they have to be open to changing their selves. Public discourse, like tolerance, is a two-way street.
