Open Forum: Gay Marriage
January 7, 2009 § 53 Comments
Gay marriage is one of the most controversial issues of our lifetime. This is due to the fact that in most traditions, marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman. Moreover, opponents of gay marriage argue that increased proliferation of gay marriage will inhibit human reproduction. Proponents of gay marriage, on the other hand, see any effort to block gay marriage as an attempt to oppress gay rights. Others see civil unions and partnerships as a more viable option. This begs the following questions:
1. Is effort to block gay marriage an act of discrimination and intolerance?
2. Are civil unions and partnerships a good alternative to gay marriages?
