LGBTQ RIGHTS

"Love comes in many forms"

What is the problem with gay marriage?

Gay marriage has been an issue in the United States for many years. Many movements have occurred in the debate of legalizing gay marriage. Certain people in the nation want to eliminate gay marriage due to the tradition that marriage is between a male and a female. However, large numbers of people have been fighting to allow gay couples to marry.

Republican Views

Most of the Republican Party is fighting to ban gay marriage. This is because they are conservative and want to support more traditional values. However, Donald Trump is more open to accepting the LGTBQ community, but still prefers "traditional" marriage.

democratic views

Unlike Republicans the Democratic Party is fighting for marriage equality. They have the goal to keep gay marriage legal and have the LGBTQ community supported nationwide. Hillary Clinton's views are like most democrats and she is very open to the "non-traditional" type of marriage.

Quotes from Clinton

-“Being LGBT does not make you less human.”

-“Gay rights and human rights are…one and the same.”

-“It should never be a crime to be gay

-“Caring for others is an expression of what it means to be fully human.”

Quotes from trump

-“I think I’m evolving, and I think I’m a very fair person, but I have been for traditional marriage. I am for traditional marriage, I am for a marriage between a man and a woman.”

-"I think the institution of marriage should be between a man and a woman."

My position

Love is a human emotion that can not easily be controlled. If someone is in love it should not matter based on gender, but based on your love for the person's personality. Love is love and it should have no limitations.
