Homosexual marriage refers to officially sanctioned marriages between homosexuals.

Overview

The reasons stated for advocating for homosexual marriage include equal treatment of homosexuals and heterosexuals and that marriage may give legal and tax advantages. Such arguments are based on the assumption that society should in fact not favor heterosexual long-term relationships before other relationships.

Some have seen homosexual marriage as part of a general undermining of the traditional family (other examples include welfare systems, the sexual revolution more generally, and Cultural Marxism).

The Jewish Evan Wolfson (founder of the group Freedom to Marry) has been described as the "Godfather" of the homosexual marriage movement.[1][2]

Many prominent Jewish individuals and organizations support homosexual marriage in Western countries, but have been accused of hypocrisy regarding Israel, which prohibits homosexual marriage. Furthermore, the mainstream Western media has been accused of not mentioning controversial decisions in Israel regarding homosexual unions, which would cause an uproar if occurring in other countries.[3]

Quotes

The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it’s fair to say that Jewish heritage is American heritage. [...] No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you. [...] The embrace of immigration is part of that. [...] What affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else. [...] It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was Will and Grace, it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace gay marriage. [...] Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good. [...] Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us, us, me – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact. [...] So I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you’ve had on the development of this nation. We owe you, we owe generations who came before you.
United States Vice President Joe Biden in a speech on 21 May 21 2013.[4]
