  2. Identity of an argument about homosexuality (either for the conclusion that it’s wrong or that it’s not wrong, or the more specific conclusion that homosexual sex is wrong or not wrong) and state that argument in logically valid form: state the conclusion and state the premises in a way that they lead to the conclusion, as a syllogism. Then explain whether each premise is true or false and why, and so whether the argument is sound or not.

Prompt #1

Identity of an argument about homosexuality (either for the conclusion that it’s wrong or that it’s not wrong, or the more specific conclusion that homosexual sex is wrong or not wrong) and state that argument in logically valid form: state the conclusion and state the premises in a way that they lead to the conclusion, as a syllogism. Then explain whether each premise is true or false and why, and so whether the argument is sound or not. 

I believe that homosexuality is not wrong. Why would it be considered wrong? Because you don’t agree with it? Well I could counter ask, who made you in charge? One may even say that the Bible says its wrong, but in actuality, things in the Bible are meant for you to gain your own understanding of what it means and not to take it verbatim and run with that idea. The world is constantly changing every day, and just because a male chooses to lay down with another male or a female with another female, does not make it wrong. To be a homosexual is not a sin nor is it a crime. We have to respect each other’s views and live our lives for ourselves. My conclusion is that homosexuality or even the act of homosexuality sex is not wrong, because it is just simply one’s personal life choice, or maybe it is just how we were born to be.
