Gay Marriage: A Misnomer

Gerald Nordskog’s main point is that there is no such thing as “gay marriage.” It is a huge misnomer. There is not a single religion or moral philosophical system – East or West – since antiquity, that ever defined marriage as between members of the same sex. If it has never been defined as members of the same sex, why should we define it as that now? A man and a woman are an ideal complement to each other. Not man and man. Not woman and woman. If you have not figured this out yet, men and women are different! A man makes up areas in which a female is lacking and vice versa. There has never been any proof that a same-sex or bisexual person has an extra gene or is born different in his physical and emotional makeup. You cannot use genetics as an excuse. Finally, the most convincing argument that he makes is that procreation happens naturally between a man and a woman. There is no room for argument here. Overall, Nordskog offers very convincing arguments for the person that believes in the Bible. Those who do not believe in the veracity of the Bible can gain from this article too however. His points are simple, clear, and logical.

  1. The arguments that you mentioned were very good. You picked the strongest points of the author’s article which made the article more clear. The only thing I would suggest is picking apart his arguments a little more. Maybe you could talk about the emotions he is appealing to or if there are any other reasons why his arguments are so effective.

  2. You seemed to have very good points, however I felt that you mostly summarized what he said. You should elaborate some more in your analysis.

  3. Good analysis, summarizes the article well. You were clear with the writer’s direction and supports. A small suggestion would be to expand on the appeals the writer uses for convincing the audience.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Good job. I like this argument a lot. Good job of getting the main points of the argument and summerizing them in this analysis. I like how you just incorporated the claim, supports, and conclusion into a paragraph. Great rhetorical analysis.
