Christian denominations hold a variety of views on the issue of homosexual activity, ranging from outright condemnation to complete acceptance. Most Christian denominations welcome people attracted to the same sex, but teach that homosexual acts are sinful. Some Christian denominations do not view monogamous same sex relationships as bad or evil.
Most states have ruled it unconstitutional, and some have disagreed. But what really is the solution to this problem? Show people really are penalized for expressing their true feelings?
This law also gives each citizen the freedom from religion. However, when the topic of gay marriage comes up, the main contrasting point would be that the bible does not agree with it.
According to the first amendment, the bible has no standing in American law. Opposing gay marriage, in my opinion is just another form of bias. Everyone has their own ways of expressing their feelings for others. Fairly, it is something beyond our control. Banning same sex marriage will not hinder the growth of the same sex marriage couples, because feelings are not physical features, they are mental.
Protect it from what, of course? Mixed marriage used to be illegal. The American Psychological Association supports homosexuality and same sex marriage.

Studies show that children raised by same sex couples are well adjusted and happy. Kids need good role models and loving parents. Gender is a factor in neither of those needs. I have found positive male role models in my life who have set outstanding examples for my own behavior, but the strength demonstrated by my MS-stricken biological mother has been surpassed by none I have met.
It is with great pride that I call myself her son. And soon, it will hopefully be with great pride that she calls her partner, Jackie, her wife.
Hawaii lawmakers approved a bill to allow civil unions for same-sex couples, marking an end to what the governor called an "emotional process" for a longtime battleground in the gay rights movement.

Many people rationalize their bias against marriage equality with the claim that non-heteroexuality is unnatural. We are a nation of progress. We are always innovating and inventing and bringing. Today during an otherwise terrible lecture on ADHD I realized something important we get sort of backwards.
