POSITION PAPER



What is your opinion on Gay Marriage?

I am a devout Catholic and I live in country where the church holds sway to our way of life. The church always teaches us that marriage, as a sacred institution of God, is reserved only for a man and a woman. Even our laws specifically define marriage as a "union between a man and a woman." Simply, there is no place for gay marriages in a society where I belong.

But I was born at an age of tolerance where various concepts, once considered taboo, are slowly and impercetibly gaining acceptance. For instance, sexual promiscuity, teenage pregnancies, abortion, even multiple marriages, are practices which are publicly condemned but are clandestinely practiced and accepted by a growing number. Gay Marriage is certainly no different. The issue of whether to allow it or not is just a question of tolerance.
