Should western nations (including the United States) legalize gay marriage?

SeanNation

Hi everyone, this is my first debate on debate.org. Have patience! With that stated, here I go! Whether you think it's a choice or not, whether you approve of homosexuality or not, homosexuality exists. Gay people exist. Gay couples and relationships exist. You can choose to ignore them, but they will continue to have sex and partnerships. If you believe it is a choice, then as long as humans retain free will, there will always be people who choose to be gay, even in the most intolerant of...

Gay marriage should be legal in the United States.

Freeman

I will be using a dual overlaying teleological/constitutional argument to contend that gay marriage should be legalized in the United States. In this project I will borrow the harm principle, as articulated by John Stewart Mill, to argue that the only reasonable circumstance in which a government can limit a citizen's liberty is to prevent that person from causing harm to others. This view when taken to its logical conclusion would entail the legalization of gay marriage. Contention 1:...

gay marriage should be legal

I believe gay marriage should be legal everywhere. Most arguments against gay marriage are ridiculous. Yes, the Bible is against it, but what if your atheist and the bible has no part of your life? The dumbest one I've heard is that if gay marriage is legal more people will become gay and society will collapse. 10% of the world is gay and it's stayed that way for a LONG time. Gay marriage is actually a good example for your kids. It takes a lot of courage for two girls or boys to be proud they a...

The right to equality is a fundamental right for humans, especially in government affairs. Taxation is a government affair. Marriage provides tax benefits. Therefore marriage is government affair. So then gays should be allowed to marry....

At the end of the day if somebody loves someone then let them marry that person. To discriminate gays is just like discriminating somebody for the color of their skin. How does it affect your life knowing that somebody is in love and happy?...

gay marriage does not lead to bestiality or pedophilia marriages

I don't believe by making homosexual marriage legal that it will lead to the legalization of pedophilia or bestiality marriages. Children and animals cannot consent to marriage or sex, therefore, the argument that gay marriage will lead to these things is absurd....

Gay marriage should be illegal

The Bible does NOT say that gay marriage should be illegal and I would argue that it does not even call homosexuality a sin. What evidence do you have to support your position that it does?...

Gay marriage should be legalized because marriage doesn't have to have a couple of the same gender. Marriage is about true love....

Gay Marriage

The idea of this debate has been lingering in the back of my mind ever since I saw Rebel display a serious dislike for gays on his profile and in various parts of DDO. So I challenge him to this debate to better understand his view of gay marriage. First round is for acceptance only. Second round is for arguments and rebuttals, as is for third and fourth round. Good luck!...
