Destiny Patrick

Introduction and thesesis

Do you think marriage is positive or negative? Now how about same-sex marriage? same-sex marriage should be aloud because god only judges us, your family shouldnt mind it, and where taught to only worry about ourselves.

Three reasons

  • only god judges you like the bible says, thou shall not lie, steal, kill, nor direspect they mother nor father. james 9:10-11
  • What if it was your brother or sister any kind of family would you mind it?
  • They dont care why should we, we where taught to only think about ourselves.

The Defense of Marriage Act defines "marriage" as only a legal union between one man and one woman, same-sex couples - even if legally married in their state - will not be considered spouses for purposes of federal law. This is still not all freedom that they cant get.


Others say same-sex marriage is against god no matter what. Just like men and women should be together not same gender. They cant even have there own biological children how should they be able to get married.


Like I said though god is the one who judges all of us at the end not other people. Same-sex marriage can have as much equal of a life as men and women together. Think of this they can't have biological children but why not adopted save children in need and give them a home to have parents as well.
