The Controversial Case Human Sexuality 220
Human Sexuality 220 The Controversial Case Through the year’s same sex marriage has been an issue and a widely debated topic in this country. This has been an important issue because it concerns basic moral and human rights. Today many gay couples have come out and voiced their sexuality choices. Although many people were and still are against the legalization of same sex marriages, it has been settled and legalized in court by the Supreme Court of Justice. Every state in the United States including the District of Columbia now have to recognize same sex marriages just as they do with heterosexual marriages. In an extended sought out victory for gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5 to 4 vote that the constitution guarantees a right to same sex marriage. Marriage is a keystone of our social order and every person should have equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Supreme Court said in a ruling that for months it has been the focus of speculation, “States cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize the union”. Now I know a lot of people are very religious, and their beliefs tell them that it is a sin, and it is wrong for a woman to marry a woman, or for a man to marry a man, but we as people cannot help who we fall in love with.
