Gay marriage: Should it be legal?

If you would like to debate me on this topic, say so in the comment section.Rules1. Ta...

Gay Marriage

I am a straight Catholic and I believe that homosexuals should be treated as our equals. Why do you believe that homosexuals should not have the same rights as you? If they wish to be Catholic and get married under that, then why push them away from God when he wants us to bring people together under his Church? These are modern times; things have changed. The bible states that it is okay to beat your slave. If you ask me, slavery and beating is certainly not okay. It also says that women should...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized In America

Gay marriage should be legalized in America. There is no logical reasons as to why it should not be, but regardless, I am going to debate the most common reasons against it. The main reason people are against gay marriage is religious reasons, mainly Christianity. Religious people will say that marriage is reserved for a man and a woman, and that homosexual relations is an "abomination". However, that should have no place in a legal decision.

There is no rational basis for banning gay marriage.

This is a short debate about gay marriage in the United States. I believe bans on gay marriage cannot be defended, even under rational basis review. When courts apply rational basis review, the question asked is whether the law at issue is rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This is the lowest level of judicial scrutiny. Thus, the issue up for debate is whether bans on gay marriage are rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This should give those against gay...
