This paper received an A Marrying Homosexuals Homosexuals should be allowed to marry because the disallowance of it violates their constitutional rights Marriage is an institution long recognized by our government under the right to pursue happiness and denying that right to any couple regardless of gender is unconstitutional This argument though is not disputed In fact none of the arguments raised in opposition to the allowance of homosexual marriages takes into account the constitutional rights afforded to all humans The arguments are only in relation to the possible repercussions real or imagined of granting these rights Our nation was built and has always been based on the fundamental principles of freedom expressed in the Declaration of Independence and through our Constitution The opponents of homosexual marriage need to remember what freedom means to America and understand the significance of setting a precedent that denies that freedom The Supreme Court has long recognized that the institution of marriage is one of the rights guaranteed to all Americans by our Constitution On the Internet you can find the full text of the following Supreme Court cases In the case of Loving v Virginia the Supreme Court said The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men In the case of Cleveland Board of Education v LaFleur the Supreme Court said This Court has long recognized that freedom of personal choice in matters of marriage and family life is one of the liberties protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment At this time however marriage is only granted to heterosexual couples Although homosexuals live under the same constitution they are not afforded the same rights as heterosexuals The reasons presented against the allowance of homosexual marriage are flimsy and have nothing to do with the constitutional rights that are supposed to be afforded
