Default Should homosexuals be allowed to marry?

Should homosexuals be allowed to marry?

Write down what you think and why.

I got this question in my practise GCSE question and i answered,
I believe that H-S should not be allowed to get married because my faith says that women were made for men and men were made for women.
But other people might argue that they should be able to battle because it is a human rights to get married and have children and it does not say anything against homosexuals.

Most weddings take place in religious places and if a man and man were to get married they would have to ask the leader of the religious place if it is okay for them to marry in their place of worship,
i would say no again because of my faith and the fact that if they were to adopt a child little kids would be swearing at the homosexual dads calling them abrupt words and i do not think it would be fair on the kid they adopt that they have to go through that.
But some people might disagree with me and say it is there choice.

Well it is common sense kids get taught that bieng a homosexual is bad and they would take advantage of the adopted child at school with abrupt language towards them directly.

I feel very, very sorry for the children who get taught that it's bad.
Also, there is a large majority of weddings- especially in Britain, where I believe you're from if you're doing GCSEs?- that are NOT religious.

To be completely honest, if I gave my teacher that answer I'd get a D at the most lol.

I've only met a few people who were taught that, and they all had parents that forced their religion upon their children. x:

"neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." Corinthians 6:9–10

Christians are always more than happy to condemn homosexuals, yet I've never heard one say adultery is wrong. I've never heard a Christian say drinking is wrong. I've never heard a Christian scorn their Bieber-obsessed daughter (an idolater). I hear many Christians swear despite revilers being prevented from going to heaven. Yeah, you get the point.

Not necessarily, the only weddings I've ever been to were in a registry office, and one was between two Catholics. Registry offices aren't really religious places lol. But that's besides the point; if someone believes in the teachings of a religion, they have the right to get married according to the scriptures of that religion, no matter what sexualities they may be.

Honey, everyone who's a minority gets abuse at some point in their life. Besides, adopted kids are often used to going through hard times. Since, y'know, they often enough don't have biological parents. :P

Yeah I was gonna mention that too. xD Remember Mike, look at both points of view. Any hint of bias and your mark will drop. I've done my GCSEs, I'm in college.

Why are you doing practice GCSE questions when you're 11?

And if I found out the school was teaching my children that homosexuality is bad, I would promptly remove them. This is most certainly not the cultural norm here in Britain Mike.

What area are you from? Where I am, the most extreme things I see are Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons from the USA. There's a lot of gay kids at my college and nobody gives a damn.

I was in the highest sets for everything and never even approached practice GCSE papers until about year 9, simply because people don't usually have the appropriate knowledge less than year after leaving primary school. To be honest, I'm liking the sound of this pro-homophobia, inappropriate exam type school less and less.

Same here, man.
I'm pretty sure you don't do gradients and pythagoras in Year Seven maths. Your school isn't sticking to the curriculum if they're making you do papers on stuff you haven't even learned, being in the highest set has nothing to do with it.

It could be a privately run school if they're also getting away with teaching homosexuality is bad?

Oh god, I bet it teaches creationism too D=

Well to be honest i do not have anything against homosexuals, i just feel sorry for the adopted kids because they have to go through bullying in school and such.

There is this gay kid in our school but i am not really sure if he is gay just dresses up like a girl bbut everyone swears at him, i am not going to lie i wanted to swear a couple times but my maturaty is passed that.

@Gofry Well it depends in what school and place you get taught in really, some might not want to do a practice GCSE question in year 7 some might not. But it is not really like a big test or anything just some homework given to us.

A) That's certainly not a common thing to happen. My two best friends were openly gay from year 8 onwards, and there were a lesbian couple in the year below me the year I left, and those are the kids I knew of. None of them had issues with bullying.

B) There's a national curriculum they have to adhere to by law. They can't do whatever they want unless they're privately owned.
