Why can't you accept that? And I agree with Glenn that there should be a uniformity in relation to civil unions, and I would certainly think it would be proper to advocate for a national civil union register. Ok, so Team USA strategically concedes that religious praxis could be exclusive.
My, my However homosexual couples are still denied equality in a couple of points of law compared to heterosexual married couples. Next, it presupposes that homosexuals end up, with a greater frequency than heterosexuals, living sexually debauched lives, and that this greater frequency is somehow the result of their not being able to legally marry.
Well, Matthew 19, the question's about divorce, but Jesus answers the question about divorce in terms of a definition of marriage.
This has been the framework and basis for marriage for a very long time, and I want to understand how contemporary Catholics can view this verse in any other way. About what the real motivation is. At no point does the proposition tell you, however, that by permitting same-sex marriage we are not permitting people to believe that.
We would then ask the question, "How do you think you should be acting morally? But when we look around the world at those 24 countries that have legalised same-sex marriage, there are indeed consequences, and that's what I'm concerned about.
And it runs the gamut. Legislating homo-tolerance through the oblique policy of legalising same-sex marriage has not worked in one country around the world. We agree, firmly, that there are cultural and religious differences between civil unions and marriages.
It is important that we recognise that if we're changing such an old institution, that that can't be done without flow-on effects. The principle that opposition defends is that the moral legitimacy of a legal system depends in part on taking seriously the moral preferences of its citizenry, hence our clash of moral and legal pluralism.
Similarly, we also try to make Governmental decisions that produce acceptable utilitarian outputs. JACKY YI asked: If same-sex marriage is legalized, gender becomes superfluous to a marriage and therefore the wider society's view on roles of man and woman will be significantly altered.
Have you had personal experience of being branded a bigot, Matthew? This stance might not be put into action by all world governments immediately, but we hold firmly to the idea that if we advocate for equality, we may actually see it materialize, even in unlikely scenarios. Good evening.
I now live in two families.
