Gay Marriage should be legalized in Australia

EverFlameWolf

Gay marriage.... Why shouldn't people be able to marry who they love? Christians, Muslims and Catholics all say that marriage should be between a man and woman. God didn't write the marriage act, we did. So we should be the ones to change it. Tony Abbotts own sister is gay, I would love to see how he treats her. People should accept gay marriage. It is doing nothing wrong except making people happy....

Gay Marriage should be legal in the United States.

Before I begin I would like to clarify that marriage, in this argument, will be defined as: "The legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman (or, in some jurisdictions, two people of the same sex) as partners in a relationship" (Oxford Dictionary). The only thing I have to provide for my opening position is that there is no valid reason to not allow gays to marry. My opponent will refute me by providing valid reasons....

Legalizing Gay marriage

I would first like to say I do not hate Homosexuality, but neither do I approve of it. I respect their choices, but can never approve of the relationship. With that out of the way, I would say that gay marriage, although understandable, should not be legalize and can lead to a bad precedent on society. If we allow gay marriage what's to say that incest shouldn't be illegal, or pedophilia, or in extreme settings bestiality and necrophilia. To me gay marriage can be the first step on rewriting...

Gay Marriage and/or Relationships

I am pro for gay marriage and most of you are going to say "Oh you're 14 you have no idea what you are talking about." I'm just going to say that i'm intelligent for being a 14 year old. The thought of being against gay marriage is horrible. DON'T TRY TO PULL ANY TYPE OF RELIGION RELATED THINGS INTO THIS. You can if you want to but you will just be shot down. Gay marriage is perfectly fine....

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

linate

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,...

Gay Marriage

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...
