Gay Marriage Needs to be Legalized

anxnxmxus

There is absolutely no reason for LGBT+ people to not be able to get married. I'd love to see someone give me one good argument (and no, the Bible isn't a good argument), as to why they don't have the same rights as straight people....

gay marriage should be legalized in the US

One of the biggest issues for the US government is the issue of whether gay marriage should be legalized or not. I would say that the answer is simple, the US Constitution says (all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness)- www.archives.gov The rights for a man to love, be with, and be married to another man, or a woman to do the same with another woman with the same legal right...

gay marriage should not be legal - civil unions okay

we should recognize that the natural world creates natural distinctions between male and female, and their cohabitation etc is what produces offspring. they are a natural unit for the purposes of kids, and a natural unit for the purposes of simply recognizing nature. we can have civil unions or something to respect others, perhaps, but that doesn't mean we have to give the same value to something that is fundamentally different, by calling it marriage. also, as far as procreation goes... we'...

Gay marriage should be legal

Why and how is same-sex marriage a good, positive way to host a society? This world's kids don't need more broken families (i.e. divorced parents, stress because of differences/controversy). The world in general doesn't need more exposure to AIDS. Don't we want to "coexist?" Gay marriage sets religious people and secular people even more apart. BOP (burden of proof) is mostly on Pro because he/she needs to provide reasons gay marriage is good for society. I, Con, will only debunk and rebut,...

If you take religion out of the question, I don't see how gay marriage is a bad thing? They only want the same rights as everyone else. Although I can point out the differences if you want, you can't argue with Polygamy, Incest, Beastiality and Pedophilia. Those are completely different cases which I would have different arguments for. For instance, it's different from pedophilia because there are no minors involved. That's what makes pedophilia wrong. Gay couples can raise children and they...

If you take religion out of the question, I don't see how gay marriage is a bad thing? Gay couples can raise children. They pay their taxes like everyone else. And I don't see how their marriages would affect other people. I've never heard anyone complaining that somebody else's marriage was hurting their own. That just doesn't make sense....
