The Arguments for and against Gay Marriage When asked if he would support an amendment to the US constitution to ban gay marriage President Bush said Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman If activist judges insist on redefining marriage by court order the only alternative will be the constitutional processqtd in USA Today As Helen of Troy was the face that launched a thousand ships this quote launched a national debate over the right for gays to marry I intend to explore why there is so much controversy surrounding this subject and why so many people are against it Ask just about anyone Theyll all tell you theyre in favor of equal rights for homosexuals Just name the situation and ask Theyll all say yes gays should have the same rights in housing jobs public accommodations etcetera But when you get to gay marriage all the equality stops dead coldMarriage is a powerful word to those who oppose and are for gay marriage People want to reserve the m word but at the same time they dont want to discriminate yet they are discriminating by not wanting them to marry The debate over the freedom to marry is about the right to enter into the sate-created institution of civil marriage only After all marriage is a civil right and two consenting adults should be allowed to enter into the institution if they so choose The most fashionable argument against it is that it undermines the institution of marriage and therefore family and therefore society but one can not help but think that this is an idea that doesnt really get the true feelings of the advocates after asking around few people opposing the notion of gay marriage offered that up as the main reason Most said instead that gay marriage and homosexuality were inherently wrong or violated their religious beliefs In a recent Gallup Poll done by USA TODAYCNN
