As Americans we are to believe that there is no other person like you.

As Americans we expect to be able to love who we have chosen.

As Americans we are said to be equal.

But that is not the case at all.


Our history shows discrimination over African Americans and how it’s been evolved regarding racism but now there is a form of discrimination that is becoming more prevalent. This form is towards those of other sexual orientations such as those who are gay, lesbian or bisexual. Discrimination under any circumstances is morally wrong and it based on sexual orientation needs to be addressed, People should not be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation just because the bible, church or other religious materials that states being gay is unnatural, gay people are nothing less than straight people we are all human.

Many people don’t agree because they believe you will burn in hell for it, But no one is perfect everyone eventually has made at least one sin in their life, so why make such a big deal over one matter when there are hundreds that isn’t being addressed. Last time I checked they are not god. They do not know what will happen. No one really does until it happens.


The Declaration of Independence states that we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal that they endowed by their own creator with certain unalienable rights these words were written over two hundred years ago and even then the people believed in the importance of equality. All men are created equal and therefore there should be no discrimination. Every human is giving the right to his or her opinion and is given the freedom of expression so not to impose upon others rights being gay, lesbian or bisexual poses no threat against anyone else’s personal rights or freedoms.


I have started to notice the news will eventually discuss equality along with gay marriage , people who are against same sex marriage argue that it should not be legalized to protect traditional marriage and the traditional family. Protect it from what?

What is so dangerous about same sex marriage that we have to protect normal marriage? This isn’t war.

Same sex marriage can’t harm families.

Marriage isn’t exactly the same as it used to be either.

Interracial marriage used to be illegal. Wife’s used to be their husband’s property and in today’s society marriage isn’t like it used to be. Many marriages don’t last they end up getting divorced but at least they was able to have a chance.


It’s important to remember that the bible was written in a culture that assumed men were in control and women were subject to and marriage was not an equal partnership but a matter of a man owning a woman. I believe lesbian, gay and bisexual people to be a part of god’s wondrous creation created to be just who they are and completely loved and treasured by god. If people did what others wanted them to do eventually we would all become the same person, which means not everyone is dfferent. They say to live would be the rarest thing in the world most people exist that is all. If legalized it could be one of the most revolutionary policy decisions in the history of America along with women’s rights interracial marriage and slavery.
