Same Sex Spouses
45,300 -- The number of same-sex couples in 2006. Of these, about 7,500 (16.5%) were married couples and 37,900 (83.5%) were common-law couples.
53.7% -- The proportion of same-sex married spouses were men.
46.3% -- The proportion of same-sex married spouses who were women.
On July 20, 2005 Canada one of the first few countries to legalize gay marriage after Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain.
In the United States 17 States have legalized gay marriage while 33 States ban gay marriage.
In Islam homosexuality is not accepted. There are many verses that support this statement in the Qur'an which is like the bible. An example would be in the Qur'an it said that God made spouses to produce children and since homosexual relationship can't they are not accepted.
And Allah has made for you mates (and companions) of your own nature. And made for you out of them sons and daughters and grandchildren and provided for you sustenance of the best: will they then believe in vain things and be ungrateful for Allah's favors? - Holy Quran 16:72
In Judaism homosexuality was not accepted in the past but is now. There was a verse in the Torah to why homosexuality was not accepted in the past. It states that:
"[A man] shall not lie with another man as [he would] with a woman, it is a to'eva" (Leviticus 18:22).
In the Reform Judaism it has rejected the traditional views relating to the issue of homosexuality. Instead They view Levitical laws as sometimes seen to be referring to prostitution, making it a stand against Jews adopting the idolatrous fertility cults and practices of the neighbouring Canaanite nations rather than a blanket condemnation of same-sex intercourse or homosexuality
According to the Catholic Church, God calls everyone, whether you are homosexual or heterosexual, however the Catholic church does not recognize gay marriage.
Leviticus 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as a woman; it is an abomination"
1 Corinthians 6:9-11, "Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
The issue of homosexuality in Hinduism is controversial. Some believe romantic love can only be between man and woman but nowhere did it state in the Hindu sacred text that romantic love is excluded to man and woman. Some believe homosexual acts are a product of lust and should not be done but since homosexuals can experience romantic love it's not lust. Some people believe they not marry because of Prajaa; they cannot procreate but Prajaa can be interpreted in many ways.
Leviticus 20:13, "If a man lies with a male, as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Societal attitudes toward homosexuality vary greatly in different cultures, historical periods, and locations, as do attitudes toward sexual desire, activity and relationships in general. 39 countries finds broad acceptance of homosexuality in North America, the European Union, and much of Latin America, but equally widespread rejection in predominantly Muslim nations and in Africa, as well as in parts of Asia and in Russia. For example Africa would be much greatly influenced by their neighbours who are muslims, therefore would not accept homosexuality. Uganda for example almost allowed a bill that would give the death penalty to homosexuals.
Homosexuality being such a controversial topic leads to problems. An example was the protest France had on gay marriage. In the end France, the law to same sex marriage was past.
