Gay Marriage Should Not Be Legalized In The United States

NuckaBlitz

Just to clarify, I am arguing that gay marriage should not be legalized in the US. A political context is necessary for this debate, since we are debating the governance of this issue....

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...

Gay Marriage

Since we are already debating another topic, I looked through your profile and saw we disagreed on this as well, and wish to challenge you to this debate. It will have five rounds. Round 1- Short Introduction to Both Sides Round 2- Arguments Rounds 3-5- Rebuttals While I would appreciate observing the spiritual side, I would like to keep main argument points purely secular. Spiritual arguments can play a part, but I don't want them to be the basis of our debate. My only definition to...

reasons why gay marriage is wrong

Gay marriage is wrong for multiple reasons. The main reason is that it goes against the bible and the bible is how we should live our lives. Why do you "despise" people that feel that gay marriage is wrong. What if your family members were against gay marriage? Would you instantly despise them? God intended for marriage to be between man and woman. God told us to be fruitful and multiply. Last time i checked, you can't multiply when there is same sex marriage going on. That is a bad influence on...

Is gay marriage okay? Why?

Skywalker900

I know that many people will come in and say it's against the bible, but it actually isn't. Many things that supposedly are against homosexuality in the bible are actually just grossly mistranslated due to hundreds of years of changing each word to be easier to read. In the original manuscript in Leviticus, it said that it was offensive, or Tovah. If it were a sin it would have said Tovah Yahweh, or offensive to God. It said it was offensive because during the time it was considered a disgrace t...

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...

Legalization of Gay Marriage

eganbrooks100
Zarroette

Gay Marriage should definitely be legalized for many positive reasons. Firstly, our era has evolved so much with accepting black people and removing the slavery laws. But how have so many places around the world not legalized gay marriage? All humans should be able to love and feel attached to people regardless of sex. Marriage is defined as a commitment between a man and a woman but should we really let these definitions take control over basic human rights? No! Why do people keep referring t...

Legalization of Gay Marriage

Magicr
InVinoVeritas

Resolved: The reasons to make same-sex marriage legal in the United States outweigh the reasons not to do so.(Note: This does not neccessarily refer to a specific jurisdiction within the United States, but rather any jurisdiction within the United States.)I have made this debate unacceptable for now, as I would like to ensure a good opponent. I have tried this debate a couple of times before and have had forfeits both times.
