Okay: What is the Supreme Court thinking about marriage? They just heard oral argument from gay couples, from the states that want to preserve their bans, and from the U. And we can make a couple guesses about what's going through their heads. First, a few basics.
A Common Missed Conception
Five arguments against gay marriage: Society must brace for corrosive change - New York Daily News
It is clear, however, that the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Leviticus identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Every mention of marriage in the Bible refers to the union of a male and a female. The first mention of marriage, Genesis , describes it as a man leaving his parents and being united to his wife. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as 1 Corinthians —16 and Ephesians —33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Religious views on same-sex marriage
One can agree with the argument against gay marriage because of ones religious beliefs. One can also agree that under the first amendment no one has the right to impose rules, beliefs or opinions on anyone solely because they believe it is a moral issue with the Bible. Not everyone has the same morals or values.
This is a unique book on the topic of gay rights for several reasons. Second, and related to the first reason, is that he approaches the subject as a moral philosopher, which he is by training. My hope is that this oversight will be forgiven him by the gay community, as Meyers makes very cogent arguments, as the title promises, contra all the major arguments against gay rights. Even since the Supreme Court has upheld its legality, gay marriage continues to be contested within churches, and a lot of noise continues to be made by political conservatives over the issue.
