PHI103: Informal Logic (GSJ1415B)
Instructor: Melissa Coakley
Before I was born my mother and father were married to each other for a year, and then came sister and them 2 years later I was born. My mother and father never told me that they were married I took it on my own and knew that they was. They were two young adult you fell in love with each other and they wanted to spend the rest of their live together. They had a very normal wedding, what they could afford at the time; most of the family attends the wedding giving present to the new bride and groom. When they were married the preacher said I now pronounce you man and wife. The preacher was holding the bible in his hand, because there was a perfect type of marriage it was Adam and Eva. “Marriage exists to bring a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces.”(Anderson, 2012) God made man and the animals, with the animals he made male and female but later on he had notice that Adam did not have a mate. “GOD said it was not good for a man to live alone so he put Adam to sleep and he took one of Adam rib and made a woman. This is consider to be the perfect marriage, not one time did he said let two men or two woman comes to together and to multiply. Two men or two women cannot reproduce with each other how can we say that this is good in the eye of GOD?”(Stevens, 2014) We need to take a closer look in to what is a marriage? For many, many years the marriage vows was done between a man and a woman. This is a union. What can we say about love when it between two of the same sex? Can they get married, is that type of marriage acceptable in GOD eye or his laws. We have been taught through Sunday school and regular church that GOD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their sinful way. It was said because they did not welcome guest and they was doing all kind of wicked stuff which include homosexual activity. We must ask ourselves what is the meaning of marriage? To think of what will happen if two male or female get married with that be acceptable. When it comes to marriage it is mostly a private matter. When male and female comes together to be web by a religious figure or it could have been a justice of the peace to perform these matrimony. In the United States it is required by that a man and woman to get a licenses to be considered a couple. When it comes to the same sex marriage not all states recognize same sex marriage if a couple who marry in one states that is legal than move into another stated than the marriage is void. If a man and woman are married all states will recognize this union. We should be able to marry and live anywhere we should this is one of the rights that all people has in this country. If Helen and jenny got married in one States that legalize same sex marriage and then they move. “Helen and jenny would now have a problem. Indiana law purports to declare their marriage ”Voids” because it involves two members of the same sex and Indiana is among the forty one states that adopted statues or constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.” (Sanders, 2012) When it comes to kids who should have kids? “Should we allow the same sex marriage to adopt kids as their own when there is other who cannot have children and it will make it harder for them to adopt kids because of the new requirements?”(Becker 2012) There is no wrong or right person who should raise kids it is all about the love and care a person can give to them. We can explain the reason why a child might have two dad or two mom.
