Gay Marriage

gocubsgo25

Today I will be debating whether or not gay marriage should have been legalized throughout the United States. I support the legislation. Gay marriage is a very simple topic to argue, and it should be clear to all people that they deserve rights. Gay people are still people, and marriage is by definition: "the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a relationship". Therefore, gay marriage should be legal. This is not a question of religion, or politics, it is a deba...

Should Gay Marriage Stay Legalized?

My initial argument states that I do believe gay marriage should stay legalized. Homosexuality is not a choice, and it is not a sin. To restrict the right of marriage to someone is unlawful. I am open to any arguments....

There is not a valid religious argument against Gay Marriage

I am extremely socially liberal, and one of the things that drives me bonkers is when people use Christianity to condemn gay marriage. It is absolutely shocking how backwards this is, the same type of logic was used to condone slavery and the mistreatment of women. For a religion that is supposed to be about love and forgiveness, Christianity has spawned and awful lot of hate. Besides the fact that no person with any sort of moral compass would prevent a gay couple from being together unless the...

Gay marriage should be illegal

tejretics
Cooldudebro

Pro should begin arguing in Round 1 and post only "no round as agreed" in the final round; we each have 3 total rounds to argue. [Arguing that same-sex couples can have equal rights without use of the word "marriage" is not allowed, since that's entirely semantic, and the resolution concerns the institution of gay marriage itself, not what we call it.]...

Gay Marriage should Not be Permitted

Zarroette

PrefaceI thank Zarroette for this debate. I hope she agrees to accept, and I look forward to a cordial, engaging exchange of views. If she would like to alter any rules or formatting, she should PM me prior to acceptance. This is, of course, an issue that is important to me personally, and so I hope to defend my position well. Due to the tendency for some users to cast ideological ballots on sensitive current-issue topics like this one, there is a mi...

Gay Marriage should be allowed

Lord_Libertarian
HSamei1999

Ok I am new so I don't really no the specifics of this website, but here's my opening argument: I believe we should allow gay marriage beacuse it doesn't affect straight people. I am Christian, I oppose gayness, but I am willing to let other people do it, beacuse it really doesn't affect me. Most Western countries have agreed to a seperation of church and state, so if God won't allow gay people into heaven, then that's not the governments job, the government shouldn't be responsible for playing...
