male/female couple and have the right equipment to procreate, therefore upholding and respecting traditions of the past. Wilson also points out that homosexuality is more frowned upon than masturbation, sodomy, etc. and therefore it is something that should be frowned upon by society more than other sexual acts because it is specifically singled out as an abomination. I believe that Wilson’s rebuttal is wrong because he uses a strictly biblical perspective. Not all people believe in the same religion and therefore won’t abide by or agree with that argument if presented with it. I also disagree with the fact that people in the bible say that homosexuality is to be condemned. The natural law theory states that God created us all with a divinely ordained purpose and he made us the way we are for a reason. If this is true, then homosexuality should be accepted because God created everything, INCLUDING homosexuality. If God didn’t want homosexuality to exist then he would not have created it in the first place. The natural law theory actually supports the fact that homosexuality is morally permissible. God would not create something just to have it be an abomination in the eyes of society. I also disagree with Wilson’s rebuttal that marriage between sterile heterosexual couples is okay but marriage between homosexual couples is not. Marriage is about love, not gender/sex. A committed couple in love, regardless of their gender or ability to have children, should be able to marry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
