Adam and Eve…or Adam and Steve?
The following is a persuasive essay that argues two points: whether same-sex marriage is wrong and whether it is not. Before this essay is started out, here are a few interesting facts on homosexuality and same-sex marriage. The Netherlands was the first nation to legalize same sex marriage (in 2001). Same sex marriage is outlawed in 76 countries as of 2013. These are just a few out of the ma ny facts about homosexuality/same-sex marriage. This essay has several key points to why same-sex marriage is okay. Same sex marriage/attraction is not a sin and the Bible and history is wrong about the ...view middle of the document...

” In this situation, God created Eve, Adam’s female counterpart and his “wife”. In Henesis, she was created when God took a rib from Adam and inserted it into woman, creating Eve and a wife. It’s said by Christians who oppose same-sex marriage that Eve was created not a male. As I mentioned before, God said ““It is not good that man should be alone; will make him a helper comparable to him.” never did God mention that this companion for man HAD to be a woman. It just so happened that that He created for Adam was a woman. If God created a man as the companion, the scripture would not change. If homosexual marriage is really a sin, than it shouldn’t matter to religious opposes because it is not them.
b. To prove my point of the term “traditional marriage” being historically inaccurate, in the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 7:3-4) of the Holy Bible, God commanded the Israelites NOT to engage in interracial marriage because it was sinful. Although, this wasn’t considered interracial, it is considered religious in nature. The reason why they weren’t to engage in interethnic relationships because it was believed that others were “idolaters and worshippers of false Gods.” There was a similar code in the New Testament (2 Corinthians 6:14) but it was said as “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness.” As of 2013, approximately 80% of Americans are Christian. 4.8% of marriages in the United States are interracial (to add on to this, 3.84% of these interracial marriages would have to be Christian). This would mean (in the words of what a traditional marriage is supposed to be in the Bible) that 3.84% of that 4.8% are sinning according to their own religion. Interracial (just like same-sex) is...
