Is homosexuality morally and biblically right? This a very hard question to answer with so many opinions. The question can be looked at with religions and general rights of an individuals. The society doesn’t openly accept homosexuals like they do of the heterosexual couples in America. My question to you is what makes it wrong and who are we to judge another human being. The analysis that I am going over is from a video of a man who ask questions and gives logical reasoning to common questions thrown at the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. I feel that John Corvino provided a valuable and useful case on the morality of the community.
Corvino is the chairman of the department of philosophy at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He is the author of What’s Wrong with Homosexuality and has spoken at hundreds of campuses on issues of homosexuality, ethics, and marriage. He is the co-author with Maggie Gallagher of Debating Same-Sex Marriage. Corvino is the recipient of numerous awards, including a 2012 Distinguished Professor of the Year Award from the Presidents’ Council of the State Universities of Michigan. Lastly he is an openly gay man and the rhetor of the video.
The occasion of this video was around the date of July 9, 2013. USA Today had a headline that stated “Gay-Marriage fight moves from Supreme court to States” on that same date. This news article was stating that the legal battle was going to lower courts because of a recent victory. I believe the audience in this video are people who think that homosexuality is immoral and biblically wrong specifically the justice system in this case. He is trying to get them to understand that they should have the same rights as every citizen in America.
The way that Convino answered question that were directly against, the gay, bisexual, and transgender community made the argument of non-supporters question their logic against the community. The presupposition of the clip is the fact the he made the viewer think and understand regardless of sexual orientation and religion we all are still humans, and citizens. He said that the words we use when we talk about homosexuality is what constructs the objective views of the other sex. The fact that we refer to the sexual parts and not what really matters which is love. So he is making the viewer feel as if we are the same because we both love and share the same goals and fears.
With his goal of making us feel as if we are the same he uses pathos in his argument. He desires the viewer to show empathy to the community because we all have something in common....
